As a radical departure from the norm, Meta intends to offer a commercial version of its AI model for free, giving entrepreneurs and businesses an affordable opportunity to compete with competitors using ChatGPT and Bard.
Microsoft is Meta’s “preferred partner” for this release, and the new version of Llama 2 will be made available via the Azure cloud service and will be compatible with Windows. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, stated that the artificial intelligence large language model Llama 2 would be made available for both research and commercial use.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT faces a formidable new adversary in the form of Meta’s Llama 2 AI model. Because it has been trained on a massive corpus of text and code, Llama 2 is able to write content, translate languages, generate a variety of original content, and intelligently respond to your queries.
An important selling point of Llama 2 is that it is open-source and free to use. This makes it accessible to all, not just the largest IT firms. This can result in a period of artificial intelligence research and innovation.
The fact that Llama 2 was designed with corporate considerations in mind is an added bonus. It is excellent for duties such as writing marketing copy, outlining products, and developing customer support materials.
It goes without saying that Llama 2 has some deficiencies. Due to the fact that it is still in testing, occasional errors may occur. It is not as popular as ChatGPT, which makes training difficult due to a lack of data.
Llama 2 is a cutting-edge AI model that poses a new challenge to ChatGPT in general. It was designed with enterprises in mind, is free to use, and is based on source code that is publicly accessible. These recent developments may herald in an era of artificial intelligence research and testing.

In addition, Microsoft has now made public a $30 monthly price per user for their main generative AI tool, Microsoft 365 Copilot, in addition to the already stated subscription pricing for companies.
