Does OpenAI have a sustainable business model? ChatGPT usage is down (from its initial astronomical numbers), but – more importantly – by the numbers, the power users are engineers. When it comes to coding, GPT-4 makes good engineers great and it makes bad engineers better.
Beyond code generation, Code Llama can explain code in natural language, serving as a tool for software developers. Additionally, it can be embedded in business applications to auto-generate and execute code snippets based on natural language prompts.
In terms of performance, Meta’s research positions Code Llama ahead of GPT-3.5 on multiple code benchmarks. Independent tests by Snowflake and AI startup Phind further validate its capabilities, with some results nearing GPT-4 performance in specific tasks.
Is Code Llama a threat to OpenAI? Just remember: “free” is very pro consumer!
