Llama and Llama 2 have taken the Generative AI world by storm with publicly available state of the art performance under a commercially permissive license. This has been a game changer for startups, enterprises and a community looking to harness the power of Generative AI but need a platform to build on. Llama is that platform. Join Joe Spisak on a journey through the evolution of Llama — Meta’s latest open source large language model (LLM). Understand its growth and the range of available models including the most recently released Code Llama. Joe will also dive deeper into some of the major platforms built on Ray that enabled Llama 2 and Code Llama such that you yourself can leverage state of the art performance on infrastructure along with the most popular open models available.
