Meta has released a flurry of AI models, mostly free, this year
An (artificial intelligence) AI model designed to assist in writing computer code would be released by Meta Platforms, the company said, furthering the firm’s push into the new technology.
The social media giant said in a blogpost: Code Llama, which will be available for free, can write code based on human text prompts and can also be used for code completion and debugging.
Enterprises and businesses have flocked to the nascent generative AI market for newer capabilities and refining business processes since the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT late last year.
Including an open-source language model called Llama that poses a serious challenge to proprietary models sold by Microsoft-backed OpenAI and Alphabet’s Google, Facebook, and Instagram owner Meta has released a flurry of AI models, mostly free, this year.
As the company gears up to compete with Microsoft’s code-writing tool GitHub Copilot, it said the new AI model is built on top of Meta’s latest Llama 2 language model and will be available in different configurations.
Not recommended for general text tasks, Code Llama supports popular coding languages like Python, Java, and C++, Meta said.
