IBM Corp. has announced that the watsonx.ai studio enterprise artificial intelligence development platform, which it announced in May, will host Meta Platforms Inc.’s Llama 2, a 70-billion-parameter large language model. Select clients now have access to early access.
Without having to start from scratch, users of Watsonx.ai can train generative AI models and other kinds of neural networks. Large amounts of unlabeled data are typically used to train foundation models like Llama, enabling them to be tailored for a variety of tasks.
Llama 2, formerly known as Large Language Model Meta AI 2-chat, was made available as open source by Meta last month with the aim of enabling companies to build their own AI models using confidential information and tools.
