According to standard benchmarks, LLama 3’s 8B and 70B parameter models are the most powerful model of its size which is available in the open for free. Meta claims that Llama 3 performs better than Claude Sonnet, Mistral Medium, and GPT-3.5.

Meta’s also putting a strong emphasis on safe, responsible AI use. Along with Llama 3, Meta is releasing new trust and safety tools with Llama Guard 2, Code Shield, and CyberSec Eval 2.
  • Coming Soon to Your Favorite Apps: Llama 3 is already powering Meta AI, a super-helpful assistant that can already be found in Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and more. It’ll only get better from here.
