Big Takeaway: Meta is reportedly set to release an early version of its new large language model, Llama 3, as soon as next week, with a full open-source version expected in July, capable of competing with Claude 3 and GPT-4.

  • Meta is investing heavily in AI, purchasing hundreds of thousands of H100 GPUs from Nvidia to train Llama and other models.

  • Llama 3 will offer a range of model sizes, from very small models designed to compete with Claude Haiku or Gemini Nano, to larger models capable of full responses and reasoning similar to GPT-4 or Claude Opus.

  • It is expected to be open source, with model sizes ranging from as small as 7 billion parameters to over 100 billion parameters, which is still smaller than the trillion-plus parameters used to train GPT-4.

Big Takeaway: Google introduced new cloud-based security products and updates focused on large corporate networks, integrating Gemini, Google's generative AI models, into various security services.

  • Gemini in Threat Intelligence, a component of Mandiant's cybersecurity platform, is now in public preview, enabling natural language searches for threats and summarizing intelligence reports.

  • Google also launched Gemini Code Assist for enterprise AI code completion, competing with GitHub's Copilot Enterprise, featuring support for large codebases and fine-tuning based on internal code.

  • Code Assist supports on-premises and various Git repositories and partners with companies like Stack Overflow and Datadog for enhanced coding assistance.

๐Ÿ”Žย Extra Insightsย 

Intel unveiled its latest AI chip called Gaudi 3, which the company claims is over twice as power-efficient and can run AI models 1.5 times faster than Nvidia's H100 GPU. Intel tested Gaudi 3 on models like Meta's Llama and Stable Diffusion, demonstrating its ability to train or deploy LLMs and generative AI.

Investors close to Elon Musk are reportedly in talks to help his AI startup xAI raise $3 billion in a new funding round that would value the company at $18 billion. This follows a December SEC filing where xAI disclosed plans to raise $1 billion after securing $135 million from four investors initially.

At Google Cloud Next 2023, Google announced several new AI accelerators and instance types for its cloud platform. This includes upcoming support for Nvidia's latest HGX B200 and GB200 NBL72 chips for AI/HPC and large language model training by early 2025
