Meta’s Next-Gen AI: Aiming to Rival OpenAI’s Language Models

The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, citing informed sources, that Meta Platforms Inc. is working on a new artificial intelligence (AI) system aiming to be on par with OpenAI’s most advanced language models.

The parent company of Facebook intends for its new AI model to be ready in the coming year, and it’s expected to be several times more powerful than its commercial version known as Llama 2.

Llama 2 is an open-source language model based on generative AI technology that Meta launched in July last year, it is distributed through Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing services to compete with OpenAI’s smart chatbot, ChatGPT, and Google’s Bard.

The report mentioned that Meta’s in-development AI system, the details of which may still change, is expected to assist other companies in building services that generate advanced texts, analytics, and other outputs.

Meta anticipates commencing the training of this new AI system in early 2024.

When OpenAI released the ChatGPT chatbot in November last year, it opened the doors for widespread usage of generative AI in everyday tasks, ranging from writing to programming, ChatGPT had reached 100 million monthly active users as of January this year.

In July last year, Meta announced its plans to enable the operation of its large language model, Llama 2, in Qualcomm chips used in smartphones and personal computers, starting from 2024.
