Alpaca is an instruction-finetuned LLM based off of LLaMA.
The first of many instruct-finetuned versions of LLaMA, Alpaca is an instruction-following model introduced by Stanford researchers. Impressively, with only $600 of compute spend, the researchers demonstrated that on qualitative benchmarks Alpaca performed similarly to OpenAI's text-davinci-003, a significantly larger model.

FLAN-T5 is a finetuned version of Google's popular T5 model with instruct-finetuning. As stated in the model repository's introduction, compared to T5, FLAN-T5 is "just better at everything." With its permissive license, FLAN-T5 has become a popular option for a starting instruct model.
