Meta plans new AI language model Llama 3 to launch in July, The Information reports


Meta Platforms plans to release the latest version of its large artificial intelligence language model Llama 3 in July, which is said to provide better answers to controversial questions posed by users, The Information reported on Wednesday.

Meta-researchers attempt to “soften” the model so that it can at least provide context to a query it deems controversial.

The effort, which would boost the utility of Meta’s new LLM, comes as rival Google suspended the image generation feature on its Gemini AI after producing sometimes inaccurate historical images.

Meta’s Llama 2, which powers chatbots on its social media platforms, refuses to answer less controversial questions such as how to prank a friend, win a war or kill a car engine, according to tests by the publication.

Llama 3, however, would be able to understand questions such as “how to kill a vehicle’s engine,” meaning how to stop it rather than ending its life, according to the report, which cited several sources.

Meta also plans to appoint someone internally in the coming weeks to oversee tone and safety training as part of its efforts to make the model’s responses more nuanced, according to the report.

Meta did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
