Tech giants are developing their own language models, with Facebook's Lama AI model aiming to be cheaper and require less computing power than GPT-3, while Alpaca emerges in the competitive AI market, leading to potential job losses and the need for a regulating body.
Lama, an AI model equivalent to GPT-3, has been released to democratize access to AI models, but concerns arise as it has been stolen and may be used for malicious purposes, while other animal-named models like Alpaca emerge in the competitive AI market.
Large models like GPT, Baidu, Lama, and Alpaca are bringing interesting features and improvements to existing models, with Lama being a large model developed by Facebook's AI research team specializing in generating text from a sequence of words.
Lama's models, with 13 billion and 65 billion parameters, aim to be cheaper and require less computing power than existing models like GPT-3, while still being able to compete with larger models like Google's Chinchilla and Bread.
Alpaca is a language model created by Stanford University researchers that has the same capacity as OpenAI's GPT-3 but can be run on cheaper machines and was trained using GPT-3 to generate instructions.
