Applications are currently being accepted for the Meta Llama Impact Grants Program 2023. The program acknowledges the significant potential of AI, particularly in generative AI, to empower individuals and organizations, create economic and social opportunities, and facilitate meaningful connections.
In line with their commitment to open-sourcing, Meta released Llama 2 as an open-source large language model, resulting in a substantial demand from the global developer community.
