Meta's Plan to Launch a New AI Model Will Help Write Computer Code

By Staff Writer, 25 August 2023

On Thursday (24/8), Meta Platforms announced its upcoming release of an AI model, Code Llama, designed to aid in coding tasks, expanding its presence in the field of new technology.

This free AI model can generate code from human text inputs, assisting with code completion and debugging, according to a blog post from the social media giant.

In the wake of OpenAI's ChatGPT launch, businesses have increasingly embraced generative AI for enhancing their operations and processes.

Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, has introduced several AI models, many of which are free, this year. One such model is the open-source language model Llama, a direct contender against proprietary models like those from Microsoft-backed OpenAI and Google.

Developed on top of Meta's latest Llama 2 language model, the new AI model comes in various configurations, and its purpose is to rival Microsoft's GitHub Copilot, a code-writing tool. Code Llama is designed to support prominent coding languages like Python, Java, and C++, but it's not intended for general text-related tasks.
