What can Code Llama do?
With the new model, Meta is taking an aim at ChatGPT, which has reportedly become quite popular among coders. Github also has a OpenAI-powered coding tool whereas Amazon too has a similar model that helps people write code. There are reports about Google also working on a code writing AI tool.
Meta said that programmers are already using LLMs to assist in a variety of tasks. “The goal is to make developer workflows more efficient so that they can focus on the most human-centric aspects of their job, rather than repetitive tasks,” the company said.
Like its other AI tools and models, Meta has made Code Llama also open source and made available to everyone. “We believe that AI models, and LLMs for coding in particular, benefit most from an open approach, both in terms of innovation and safety,” said Meta.
