IBM said today that it will host Meta Platform’s AI language model, Meta Llama 2, on its own enterprise artificial intelligence platform.
IBM’s Watsonx platform, which helps organizations integrate AI into their workflows, provided some customers with early access to Meta’s release of Llama 2.
Since OpenAI launched ChatGPT late last year, there has been a lot of interest in this new technology from both consumers and businesses, and organizations are increasingly looking to bring AI into their workflows to improve efficiencies and bring advanced capabilities.
IBM said the release of Meta’s open-source AI models will be followed by additional software such as AI Tune-Up Studio, fact sheets and other generative AI models.
Llama 2, a commercial version of Meta’s open-source AI language model launched in July, is distributed by Microsoft’s Azure cloud service and competes directly with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, as well as Google’s Bard in the emerging generative AI market.
