According to GIZMODO’s Report, Meta is reportedly building an advanced AI model equating to the efficiency of OpenAI’s language model, GPT-4. The AI tool will reportedly produce text and analysis that will target businesses, in the company’s latest bid to compete with the flood of new AI models, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources.
The AI model is aimed to assist businesses with services including building sophisticated text, and analyses, as well as assisting with additional output, sources told The Journal, with the company working to acquire H100s. The advanced Nvidia chips are used to train AI software and will allow Meta to build its new AI model.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg had previously partnered with Microsoft, which owns OpenAI, to create his Llama 2 software using its Azure platform. Now, the endeavor to create a newly reformed product comes shortly after Meta introduced Llama 2, a free AI language model intended for research and commercial use.
Llama 2 was introduced to “benefit everyone,” Meta said in a July press release. “Giving businesses, startups, entrepreneurs, and researchers access to tools developed at a scale that would be challenging to build themselves, backed by computing power they might not otherwise access, will open up a world of opportunities for them to experiment, innovate in exciting ways, and ultimately benefit from economically and socially,” the release added. Zuckerberg’s new AI model is reported to roll out next year, people familiar with the matter told The Journal but will still face competition from other major products, like ChatGPT and Google’s Bard, that aren’t slowing down on their own development. However, The Journal reported that Zuckerberg allegedly plans for Meta’s AI tool to be open source, meaning it offers free access for users.
