👋 Hey all, we just launched ChatLLaMA. An experimental chatbot interface for interacting with variants of Facebook's LLaMa. Currently, we support the 7 billion parameter variant that was fine-tuned on the Alpaca dataset. This early version isn't as conversational as we'd like, but over the next week or so, we're planning on adding support for the 30 billion parameter variant, another variant fine-tuned on LAION's OpenAssistant dataset and more as we explore what this model is capable of.

If you want deploy your own instance is the model powering the chatbot and build something similar we've open sourced the Truss here:

We'd love to hear any feedback you have!

My first impressions.

  1. Chatllama gives an accurate answer based on data later than 2021. And that's its advantage over chatGPT.

  2. If you ask a general clarifying question, Chatllama loses the context and gives an irrelevant answer.

Yeah, I mention this in the post but this variant of LLaMA isn't storing any of the conversation in memory so it doesn't have context on the prior questions. You're starting fresh with each prompt. We have some ideas for how to improve this though... more soon :)

Great job. Been waiting a long time for someone to be able to deploy this model for testing. I'll give it a try now. I will watch for updates. Thanks.

can we run this locally?

I love these chatbots especially for their cute portraits. lol

I’d love to try this out but isn’t there an issue with licensing? OpenAI said you can’t use their model output to train competitors to chatgpt (which is total BS) and the alpaca dataset is all davinci output. I’m desperately trying to find some open source alternative that I can use for some experiments at work because I don’t want to give closedai any $.

I think this might be exactly what you're looking for

I am not a programmer, though I have managed to compile programs on Linux before. Is there any way for me to contribute to this without programming knowledge, or detailed knowledge on the working of this software. It's based on reinforcement learning, right? Will I be able to train it?
