Week 3 of LLaMA 🦙

Posted by @zeke

Just three weeks ago, Meta AI released a new open-source language model called LLaMA. It is not even fully open-source – only the code has been open-sourced and the weights have not been released widely. (Legitimately, at least.)

Even still, a ridiculous amount of stuff has been built around it.

It feels a lot like the first few weeks of Stable Diffusion. Like Stable Diffusion, LLaMA is easy to run on your own hardware, large enough to be useful, and open-source enough to be tinkered with, as Simon Willison articulated earlier this week.

Here’s just a partial list of what’s happened this week:

Open source language models are clearly having a moment. We’re looking forward to seeing what happens next week.
