Meta, the tech giant behind Facebook, has released an updated version of its code generation model called Code Llama 70B. Known as one the current best AI tools of its type, it now has the ability to write code in programming languages, including Python, C++, Java, and PHP, using only prompts.

With this new release, the software has become more accurate, and the open-source model is a benchmark for code generation. This area of AI could be a huge growth field in the coming years. Code generation can be a long and arduous task, and automating elements of it can help make the whole process more efficient and more accessible for people who have little to no coding skills.

The software can write code from simple prompts and create code based on other examples. It also has the ability to modify and improve existing code.

The Coding Revolution

When you consider how difficult the code generation task has always been, it is no wonder that it is making AI news. Code is a different proposition to some of the large language learning models due to the fact that it has to follow extremely strict rules to get results. It needs to be 100% accurate, which requires a lot of power in the software generating it.

Llama 70B can handle the majority of these tasks as a large language model that has used 500 billion code tokens to train it. This means it has a context window of 100,000 tokens, allowing people to generate complex yet efficient code to achieve their goals.

Code Llama 70B includes something called CodeLlama-70B-Instruct. This is a variant that has been perfectly tuned to understand human language instructions and create code accordingly. It is also comparable to other models, such as GPT-4. The fact that the software can now react to much more human and natural commands makes it even more accessible for people to use.

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta AI, and famous entrepreneur, said in a statement posted to his Facebook: “We’re open sourcing a new and improved Code Llama, including a larger 70B parameter model. Writing and editing code has emerged as one of the most important uses of AI models today. The ability to code has also proven to be important for AI models to process information in other domains more rigorously and logically. I’m proud of the progress here, and looking forward to including these advances in Llama 3 and future models as well.”

Code Llama 70B is an open-source software and is available for people to try now.
