Meta Coaches Future MVP: The Successor Surpassing Llama 3!

“Meta Is Already Training a More Powerful Successor to Llama 3”

“As if we hadn’t already seen enough web-spinning from Facebook-turned-Meta, the company is now developing a model that’s even more powerful than Llama 3, which beat human players in games including chess and Go.” Let’s take a moment to appreciate the tact of a company audacious enough to address its PR issues by simply switching names and diving even deeper into the world of AI, superseding its existing models.

Because nothing tells the world you’re taking data privacy and individual rights to heart like crafting an even bigger AI monster, am I right? Yes, as the original story affirms, Meta is in the process of crafting a successor to Llama 3. Apparently, chess and Go are passé, and this new model is playing with other, bigger toys now.

Getting into the technical details, the new project – codenamed “Majel” after Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, the voice of Star Trek’s computer- is using reinforcement learning. This means it’s educating itself through trial and error, mimicking the way humans – or indeed, resourceful children left alone with an open cookie jar – learn. Meta has been quiet about what exactly Majel is being trained to do. However, if she’s anything like her predecessor, Llama 3, then we might be in for quite an AI adventure.

Remember, Llama 3 was not just any AI. It played games with elite human competitors and effectively trampled them, claiming victory in widely revered games like chess and Go. So what could Majel be training for that’s more ambitious than that, one might wonder?

This makes one reminisce about the good old days when Facebook – or should we say, Meta – was just about connecting with friends and sharing updates. Ah, those were the times! But let’s not digress. After all, why bother with such nostalgia when we can boldly go where no man has gone before, with a tech giant hoisting AI efforts to the next level. Isn’t progress beautiful?

The original piece indicates that experts from Meta are quick to clarify that this doesn’t mean Majel will be inherently better than humans, just different. A comforting thought, isn’t it? It’s like being told that the extremely venomous snake in your room is not better than you, just different.

All jokes apart, make no mistake about it: Meta’s aggressive push into AI territory speaks volumes. An evolved AI model at its disposal could transform various areas, from content moderation to predictive shopping. It could redefine online interaction as we know it. So far, the question remains – will this transformation hold more promise or peril for us mortals? Only time and Meta will tell.

In the meantime, we are left to admire the sheer courage of a company plunging headfirst into uncharted AI waters while dealing with the fallout of data privacy controversies. Here’s hoping these dazzling AI prospects don’t blind us to the path of diligence and vigilance in ensuring AI is used responsibly.
