The model that launched a frenzy in open-source instruct-finetuned models, LLaMA is Meta AI's more parameter-efficient, open-source 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.

The most recent (as of May 2023) effort from EleutherAI, Pythia is a set of LLMs trained on The Pile. While it appears to outperform OPT and GPTNeo, its performance against GPT-J is unclear. Versions of Pythia have also been instruct-tuned by the team at Together.
