After almost nine months, Meta has introduced a new family of Llama 3 models. And they are open-source, just like before, under Meta’s Community License Agreement. Currently, Meta has announced Llama 3 models in two sizes: Llama 3 with 8B parameters and Llama 3 with 70B parameters. They have a context length of 8K tokens.

Meta is also training its largest multimodal model with 400 billion parameters, and it will be available in the near future. However, we are not sure if Meta will choose to open-source their largest model when they release it to the public.

As of now, Meta is integrating its Llama 3 models across all its social media apps including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and on the web as well. Yes, just like ChatGPT, you can now chat with Llama 3 models via (visit) for free. And on apps, you can find Meta AI at work in your feed, chats, and search.

Coming to the Llama 3 models, Meta says its 8B model is better than Google’s Gemma 7B and Mistral 7B models. And the Llama 3 70B model beats Gemini 1.5 Pro by a whisker and also scores better than Claude 3 Sonnet in the MMLU benchmark.

We will have to test the models extensively to evaluate where they stand against competing models. But for now, it seems like Meta has launched capable models with the Llama 3 family. What do you think about Meta’s new models? Let us know in the comment section below.
