Meta introduced Code Llama, an AI tool for writing program code

Code Llama generates code by description, and terminates and debugs it when a specific string is pointed to. In addition to the basic Code Llama model, the developers have released two specialized versions: Code Llama-Python (able to understand Python commands) and the second Code Llama-Instrct (for textual instructions). The models are not interchangeable - the basic Code Llama and Code Llama-Python are not recommended for natural language control.

Meta said that Code Llama performs better than publicly available large language models. In the HumanEval test, the system scored 53.7% and was able to accurately write code based on a textual description. Code Llama includes three versions - with 7, 13 and 34 billion parameters. The first can run on a single GPU, the others will require more powerful hardware.

The project code is published on GitHub, and the model can also be downloaded on the company's website.
