Released alongside Vicuna, Koala is one of many descendants of the Meta LLaMA model trained on dialogue data collected from the web. On the developers' benchmarks, Koala outperforms its sibling Alpaca, though its adoption has been significantly less than that of its other sibling, Vicuna. Due to its use of LLaMA, only research use is permitted.

LLaMA was previously Meta AI's most performant LLM available for researchers and noncommercial use cases. It has since been succeeded by Llama 2.
The model that launched a frenzy in open-source instruct-finetuned models, LLaMA is Meta AI's more parameter-efficient, open alternative to large commercial LLMs. Despite being smaller than many commercial models, LLaMA outperformed the gold standard GPT-3 on many benchmarks, with the primary drawback being that its access remains gated to researchers with restrictions on commercial use.
