Facebook’s parent company, Meta has launched into the AI race with a new large language model based on artificial intelligence (AI) aimed at the research community.

In May last year, Meta released large language model OPT-175B, also aimed at researchers, which formed the basis of a new iteration of its chatbot BlenderBot.

Gil Luria, senior software analyst at D.A. Davidson said: “Meta’s announcement today appears to be a step in testing their generative AI capabilities so they can implement them into their products in the future.” 

“Generative AI is a new application of AI that Meta has less experience with, but is clearly important for the future of their business,” Luria said.

Meta has since also launched a model called Galactica, which it said could write scientific articles and solve math problems, but its demo was later pulled down because it repeatedly generated authoritative-sounding content.
