  • Introducing Code Llama, a state-of-the-art AI for programming.  (Meta)

    While this has the same general limitations as other LLMs (like ChatGPT), you can download itself and mess around with the code and models without worrying about leftist lunatics wrapping the whole thing in the curare-dipped razor wire of wokeness.

    There are a couple of restrictions on the code license, and more on model license, but you can get the code and the data, and once it's out there you can rely on someone to ignore all the rules, and once that happens there's no putting Pandora's cat back in the bottle.

    This is in addition to the recently released Llama 2, a general-purpose LLM, and SeamlessM4T, a transcription and translation system that understands nearly 100 languages.

3 the problem with hiring illegals, much harder to comply with ITAR, and EAR while doing so. Space is an industry where that can be important.
