The launch of Open AI’s ChatGPT last year marked the beginning of a stir that has grown so rapidly into an undeniably loud buzz in the tech space.
Tech giant’s, businesses and enterprises have waded in, exploring the AI market in their different capacities and unique ideas . each wanting different things.
Meta has taken a step further in , with the launch of its newest AI tool Code Llama,designed to assist in computer code writing.
In a statement released today on its blog, the tech giant said Code Llama is a Large Language model (LLM) that can use thuman text prompts to generate and discuss code.
It is named ‘state-of-the-art for publicly available LLMs on coding tasks.” and has the potential to make workflows faster and more efficient for developers
It lowers the barrier to entry for people who are learning to code.
In helping programmers write more robust, well-documented software, it can be used as both a productivity and an educational tool.
According to the blogpost, Code Llama is a code-specialized version of Llama 2 that was created by further training Llama 2 on its code-specific datasets, sampling more data from that same dataset for longer.”
Lama 2 is one of the number of free AI models that Meta has released this year.
With its enhanced coding capabilities, Code Llama can generate code and natural language about code, from both code and natural language prompts
It can also be used for code completion and debugging.
Meta pointed out that the new AI model is presented in two variations.
- Code Llama – Python , a language specialized variation , and
- Code Llama – Instruct , an instruction fine-tuned and aligned variation.
Highlighting other details , the statement mentioned different model sizes released.
” We are releasing three sizes of Code Llama with 7B, 13B and 34B parameters respectively “
Stating the purpose and expectations of the AI model , the company said Codet Llama is designed to support software engineers in all sectors — including research, industry, open source projects, NGOs and businesses.
While pointing. out that ” there are still many more use cases to support”, Meta established
“hope” that “Code Llama will inspire others to leverage Llama 2 to create new innovative tools for research and commercial products.”
Code Llama is free and released for both research and commercial use under the same community license as Llama 2.
