As ChatGPT contines to take over the world of technology, Meta (parent company of Facebook) has announced a research tool called LLaMa that will also rival Google's LaMDA - a family of neural language models.

In a Facebook post on Friday, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that language models "have shown a lot of promise in generating text, having conversations, summarizing written material and more complicated tasks like solving math theorems or predicting protein structures."

For now, LLaMA is not in use across Meta services like Facebook and Instagram. According to Zuckerberg, the tech would be made available to researchers. Zuckerberg said that "Meta is committed to this open model of research."

Wondering what large language models are? Such AI systems learn and imbibe knowledge from large volumes of text available on the internet, based on which their responses get smarter and crispier. As is true for all AI algorithms, the more data such language models are fed, the better performing they are.

ChatGPT was built by OpenAI, a startup that has received backing from Microsoft. Recently, Microsoft said that it would incorporate the text tool into its Edge browser and Bing search.

Google's parent company Alphabet also has a language model of its own called LaMDA based on which it has built a ChatGPT-like tool called Bard. Meta has dabbled in large language models earlier with OPT-175B and the controversial Galactica that was quickly rolled back.
