Alibaba’s cloud and computing division has added Meta’s recently released large language model Llama2 into ModelScope, an open-source “model-as-a-service” platform owned by the e-commerce giant. This enables Chinese corporations to train their own AI models or develop applications based on Llama2. The move coincides with the cloud unit’s preparations for a separate IPO. As Llama2 is developed by a US-based company, Alibaba Cloud issued a statement to remind Chinese developers using Llama2 to adhere to the country’s laws and regulations. It emphasizes the importance of not engaging in or generating behaviors or content that could jeopardize the rights and interests of the state. [Alibaba Cloud, in Chinese]
