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.

Released alongside Koala, Vicuna is one of many descendants of the Meta LLaMA model trained on dialogue data collected from the ShareGPT website. According to the authors, Vicuna achieves more than 90% of ChatGPT's quality in user preference tests, while vastly outperforming Alpaca. As of May 2023, Vicuna seems to be the heir apparent of the instruct-finetuned LLaMA model family, though it is also restricted from commercial use.
