News #1 — Llama 3 breaks out

Meta has released a new open-source model Llama 3 with 8 and 70 billion parameter options. At the moment, it is the largest open-source model. And judging by the ratings on ChatBot Arena, the new Llama already outperforms Gemini Pro and Claude 3 Sonnet. It also leads the trends on Hugging Face where, by the way, you can try the new LLM in action. Of course, you have an opportunity to launch the model locally if your hardware allows it; using Ollama or LLM Studio, for example. An open-source model at a level comparable to GPT 3.5? Yes, we are now at this point in the timeline.

News #2 — India has joined the GenAI chat

Meanwhile, India is pushing to lead in the application of GenAI. According to data from Elastic, up to 81% of respondents in India use new AI technologies in their work and workplaces. According to the agency's information, investment in GenAI technologies in India should increase substantially in the next 2 years. Just recently India repealed a package of laws strictly regulating AI technologies. So, India is clearly making a big bet on the development of GenAI technologies on its territory.

#3 - Beauty Contest for AI Models (as Models!)

In the near future, the first-ever beauty contest for AI-generated models will take place, organized by Fanvue and the World AI Creator Awards. The prizes — totaling $20,000 — will be received not by the virtual characters, but by their creators. In this case we are not talking about the LLM model, but the model as the term is used in beauty contests. The judges will be 2 actual humans, and 2 virtual models, and you can submit your application until May 10.
