True to the rumors and advance reports, Meta Platforms, the corporate previously generally known as Fb, right this moment unveiled Code Llama, its new generative AI giant language mannequin (LLM) designed particularly for programming — and just like the extra general-purpose LLaMA 2, it’s open supply and licensed for industrial use.
Code Llama is “designed to help software program engineers in all sectors — together with analysis, business, open supply tasks, NGOs, and companies,” Meta says in its weblog submit saying the fashions.

All fashions help as much as 100,000 tokens for his or her prompts. This implies “customers can present the mannequin with extra context from their codebase to make the generations extra related,” based on Meta.
The LLaMA prolonged household additionally contains two fine-tuned fashions, one for Python and one for Instruct, the latter of which “has [been] fine-tuned to generate useful and secure solutions in pure language,” and due to this fact, Meta says, needs to be used when producing new code from pure language prompts. That’s, it returns safer, extra anticipated and maybe much less artistic responses.
