Arr, gather 'round me hearties, for I have a new and excitin' tale to tell. This be a story of a wondrous beast that roams the digital seas, known to all as LLaMA. Now, don't be fooled by the name, for this be no ordinary llama like the ones ye find grazin' the highlands of South America. Nay, this be a language model, but not just any language model—it be a grand and mighty LLaMA!
Ye see, in the world of modern sorcery—excuse me, technology—there be clever contraptions called large language models, or LLMs for short. These be the masters of words and phrases, able to understand and craft sentences as if by magic. But among these LLMs, there be one that stands above the rest, and that be LLaMA. Hailing from the land of Meta, LLaMA be a formidable beast with 65 billion parameters, and yet it be as nimble as a spry pirate on the deck.
Now, what sets LLaMA apart from the rest be its remarkable efficiency. Ye may have heard of another language model by the name of GPT-3, a grand and powerful beast in its own right. But behold! LLaMA-13B, one of LLaMA's many forms, be claimed to outperform GPT-3, despite bein' 10 times smaller. Aye, 'tis a feat akin to out-sailin' the Black Pearl with a mere dinghy. LLaMA be a most versatile creature, able to tackle a wide range of linguistic challenges while usin' but a single GPU. See: Meta unveils a new large language model that can run on a single GPU.
And so, me hearties, LLaMA be a marvel of the digital age, an AI-powered language model that be as smart as it be efficient. It be trained on a treasure trove of texts in many a language. And while it may share its name with a humble beast of burden, make no mistake—LLaMA be a creature of great power and potential, one that be shapin' the future of language and communication in ways we can scarcely imagine.
So raise yer tankards and toast to LLaMA, the mighty language model that be chartin' new courses on the high seas of AI. For in this ever-changin' world of technology, LLaMA be a beacon of innovation, guidin' us toward a horizon of endless possibilities.

Meta has released version two of its LLaMA model, which is actually several models in one. It is trained on 40% more data than LLaMA 1 and outperforms many open-sourced LLMs. And it is available for commercial use. See Introducing Llama 2: The next generation of our open source large language model.
