• Meta has released a new language model, LLaMA, to compete with ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.
• The AI arms race spurred by ChatGPT has been joined by Facebook (Meta) founder Mark Zuckerberg.
• LLaMA was created to help researchers investigate potential applications of AI in query response and document summarization.
New Language Model: LLaMA
Facebook (Meta) founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of a new language model for Meta – dubbed LLaMA – in an effort to rival existing AI technologies such as ChatGPT and Google’s Bard. LLaMA is part of Meta’s Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) Unit, reflecting a broader development in the field. It was designed to help scientists and engineers investigate potential applications for AI, including query response and document summarization.
AI Arms Race
The success of ChatGPT has sparked an AI arms race between IT industry leaders, with everyone eager to get their slice of the expanding industry. OpenAI’s chatbot uses an extensive language model system as its backbone, while Google’s counterpart relies on LaMDA technology. With the introduction of Meta’s version of this technology, users will now be able to take advantage of the sophisticated capabilities offered by these systems.
Harder Tasks Within Reach
According to the CEO, harder tasks like solving arithmetic problems or predicting protein structures are now within reach with this version of the technology developed by Zuckerberg and Meta. This reflects how quickly the technology is developing under OpenAI and other leading developers in the industry.
Chatbots have become increasingly popular over recent months due to their impressive capabilities and potential applications across multiple industries. As more companies start tapping into this rapidly growing sector for innovation opportunities, competition among developers has intensified significantly since then.
The release of Meta’s new language model has further intensified competition within IT’s booming AI sector as more companies strive for a piece of this rapidly growing market share. With advanced capabilities such as query response and document summarization now available through LLaMA, users can expect even greater achievements from chatbot technologies in the near future
