, which owns
, unveiled its own version of the artificial intelligence behind apps like
on Friday , saying it would give researchers access to find solutions to the technology's potential dangers.
Meta described its own artificial intelligence (AI), called LLaMA, as a "smaller, higher-performing" model designed to "help researchers advance their work," in what could be seen as a veiled criticism of the decision to Microsoft to widely disseminate the technology, while keeping
the programming code secret.
ChatGPT, backed by Microsoft, caused a worldwide sensation for its ability to generate high-quality text, such as essays or poems, in seconds, using a technology known as Large Linguistic Models (LLMs).
LLMs are part of a field known as generative AI that also includes the ability to execute images, designs, or programming code almost instantly
from a simple request.
Microsoft has been working closely with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, and earlier this month announced that the technology would be integrated into its Bing search engine, as well as the Edge browser.
Google, seeing a sudden threat to its search engine's dominance, was quick to announce that it would shortly be launching its own linguistic AI, known as Bard.
ChatGPT is the AI system that causes a sensation.
Reports of disturbing exchanges with Microsoft's Bing chatbot, such as threats and desires to steal nuclear code, went viral, setting off alarm bells that the technology was not ready.
Meta said these problems, sometimes called hallucinations, could be better remedied if researchers had greater access to the expensive technology.
OpenAI and Microsoft strictly limit access to the technology behind their chatbots, prompting criticism that they are preferring the potential benefits to improving the technology faster for society.
"By sharing the LLaMA code, other researchers can more easily test new approaches to limit or eliminate these problems," says Meta.

are done on mobile phones, we are launching all new Bing and Edge mobile apps to serve as your co-pilot on the web, even when you're not at your desk," the statement said.
In its Skype version, the 36 million users will be able to include Microsoft's artificial intelligence tool in group chats and ask questions.
if your family is chatting about the next family reunion,
you can simply ask Bing for suggestions on travel destinations, expected weather forecasts, and interesting events around the time of your trip, and everyone in the chat will have access to the results. ", explains the company.
