Meta Llama 3: Advancing Code Generation and Community-Driven AI

Code generation and safer AI are the highlights of Meta’s Llama 3 AI model, which Meta recently launched. Will it become the most suitable AI tool for XR development?

Meta Llama 3 is a large language model trained on a massive dataset of text and code​, 15 trillion tokens of data, doubling the capacity of Llama 2. It is integrated into Meta’s main social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp as Meta AI, a new intelligent assistant, and diversifying it from the previous version.

Meta Llama 3 is the company’s most advanced model, capable of supporting a wide range of applications. By engaging in research and collaborating with the community, Meta claims to push the boundaries of Generative AI, Computer Vision, NLP, Infrastructure, and other AI fields, aiming to implement these insights into developing innovative and safer solutions. Llama 3 models will be available on AWS, Databricks, Google Cloud, IBM WatsonX, Microsoft Azure, NVIDIA NIM, Snowflake and more. 

Key features that make Llama 3 stand out: 

  • Enhanced performance. Llama 3 can handle multi-step tasks with drastically elevated capabilities like reasoning, code generation, and instruction following. New models — Llama 3 8B, which contains 8 billion parameters, and Llama 3 70B, which contains 70 billion parameters, as Meta says, were trained on two custom-built 24,000 GPU clusters and are among the best-performing generative AI models available now.
  • Code generation. Llama’s ability to generate various programming languages makes it invaluable for programmers. Its expanded coding knowledge can aid in code completion and offer alternative methods during the code generation phase, making development quicker and contributing to the most effective solutions.
  • Responsibility. Meta strives to save AI and continues its commitment to the open-source community by making Llama 3 widely accessible and encouraging community feedback and engagement.

Llama 3 is available via Meta or through Hugging Face or Kaggle, it requires filling Meta’s request access form

At Lucid Reality Labs, we view this as a significant opportunity for the XR industry, allowing a broader range of individuals to contribute to impactful XR solutions. With enhanced development capabilities thanks to reasoning and coding, it can enable quicker and more efficient development; streamline XR content creation such as immersive environments and interactive simulations; and, while leveraging AI, businesses can create more sophisticated and effective training and simulation experiences in XR, enhancing learning outcomes and skill development.

Overall, Meta Llama 3’s capabilities have the potential to drive innovation and competitiveness in the XR industry. By enabling more intelligent immersive experiences, Meta AI will benefit businesses and developers while promoting responsible and impactful technology development.

Analyzing recent launches and trends in the AI market, we observe that Google focuses on visual-focused models, Open AI is more of a universal assistant, while Meta seems the most fit the needs of the immersive solutions’ creators, especially in the context of Meta’s strategy of creation its own ecosystem and the most recent launch of Meta Horizon OS with its’ enterprise emphasis that will gather global XR hardware leaders and bring competitive advantage to Meta on this fast-paced market.
