Code Llama, an open-source large language model that can automatically generate code snippets and explain how they work, has been introduced by Meta Platforms Inc. For commercial use, the model is free.
The open-source language model Llama 2, which Meta released last month, is the foundation for Code Llama. The latter design is more multifunctional.
Along with coding, it can also translate text, summarize documents, and respond to simple questions. One of the most cutting-edge language models in the open-source community is Llama 2.
Code Llama is a specialized version of Llama 2 with significantly improved programming capabilities, which Meta introduced today.
