Move gives start-ups and other businesses a low-cost opportunity to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard
Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta is making a commercial version of its artificial intelligence model freely available, in a move that gives startups and other businesses a low-cost opportunity compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.
A new version of a Meta large language model (LLM), called Llama 2, will be distributed by Microsoft through its Azure cloud service and will run on the Windows operating system, Meta said in a blogpost, referring to Microsoft as “our preferred partner” for the release. LLMs underpin generative AI products like the ChatGPT chatbot, although ChatGPT’s owner has not open-sourced – or made widely available to others – its LLM, called GPT-4.
