Facebook releases Llama 2

Meta has released Llama 2, the new version of their open source large language model, including model weights and is free for research and commercial use.

It is no secret that Meta is investing heavily in AI, but I always find it interesting when a large company make a technology open source. It can be due to the goodness of their heart, but often it is to change the competitive situation by making the technology a commodity and weaken competitors.
