Large language models are having their Stable Diffusion moment

LLaMA on its own isn’t much good if it’s still too hard to run it on a personal laptop.

Enter Georgi Gerganov.

Georgi is an open source developer based in Sofia, Bulgaria (according to his GitHub profile). He previously released whisper.cpp, a port of OpenAI’s Whisper automatic speech recognition model to C++. That project made Whisper applicable to a huge range of new use cases.

He’s just done the same thing with LLaMA.
