The AI Revolution: Meta's Llama 3 Leads the Charge

What a time to be alive. So much is happening in AI that at times you might feel left behind. This technology space is moving faster than anything I have seen. Along with the innovation is all the interest from the broader community. Kudos to Meta for making the Llama models free.

On Thursday, Meta unveiled early versions of its Llama 3 open-weights AI model that can be used to power text composition, code generation, or chatbots. It also announced that its Meta AI Assistant is now available on a website and is going to be integrated into its major social media apps, intensifying the company's efforts to position its products against other AI assistants like OpenAI's ChatGPT, Microsoft's Copilot, and Google's Gemini.

The sizes of these models are incredible, and this will just push the other players in the market to innovate even more.

Buckle up folks because we haven't seen anything yet.
