Facebook parent company Meta recently presented its own AI language model. The artificial intelligence LLaMA is supposed to be a ChatGPT alternative. The system is based on billions of data points.
There has been a lot of focus on the topic of artificial intelligence among the big technology companies recently. After OpenAI triggered some controversy with ChatGPT and Microsoft decided to integrate AI into its search engine Bing, the competition followed suit.
LLaMA: Meta presented its own AI language model
Google, for example, reacted with the AI language model “Bard”, which, however, still seems immature. Meta is the next company to enter the AI competition. On Friday, 24 February 2023, CEO Mark Zuckerberg presented the AI language model LLaMA.
The artificial intelligence is similar to ChatGPT. In addition to creating texts, it is possible to conduct conversations or solve mathematical problems. LLaMA is based on a language model with up to 65 billion data points.

The information for the algorithm comes from the internet. According to the company, the system is even better than the competition. This is because LLaMA would outperform the GPT-3 used by OpenAI in many areas. Nevertheless, Meta does not use the system for its own products.
The US company told the news agency Bloomberg that the algorithms are not intended for Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp. Instead, LLaMA is to be made available to researchers from the AI sector. The first practical examples seem entertaining, but also quite astonishing.
LLaMA writes applications as dragon feeders
For Meta itself required the system to write an application as a dragon feeder. As curious as this request sounds, the system easily coped with the requirements and wrote a letter of application for the Magic Unicorn Corporation.
The system also wrote humorous dialogues in the context of the series Seinfeld. In doing so, the AI understood aspects that cause confusion in many other AI language models. Meta, meanwhile, shows that it can certainly keep up with Microsoft and Google and is a first-rate competitor in the AI race.
