With a staggering 8 to 70 billion parameters, Llama 3 surpasses any other model in its class. The model’s improved pre-training and post-training processes have significantly improved various tasks.

Llama 3 reduces errors, enhances response diversity, and provides better alignment. Meta has also developed a new human evaluation set covering 12 use cases to ensure real-world performance, like asking for advice, brainstorming, classification, closed question answering, coding, creative writing, extraction, inhabiting a character/persona, open question answering, reasoning, rewriting, and summarization.
