Large language models like ChatGPT are revolutionizing AI's understanding and generating human language capabilities. A new open-source model called Code Llama is doing the same for code. In this episode, we explain how Code Llama was created by researchers at Meta AI by training the Llama 2 foundation model on a massive dataset of programming languages.
Optimizations like infilling and handling long code inputs unlock new applications for AI coding assistants. Code Llama sets new records for public AI models on coding benchmarks.
However, responsible development is critical to manage risks like biases. While not perfect, Code Llama represents an exciting step towards AI-empowered software development. Tune in to learn how models like Code Llama could profoundly reshape how programmers build software by automating coding tasks and enhancing human innovation.
