In a post on LinkedIn, Armand Ruiz, Director of AI at IBM announced that IBM watsonx has officially released CodeLlama-34B on its Generative AI Platform. Developed by Meta AI, is poised to revolutionize the coding landscape, offering unparalleled support to developers seeking to enhance their productivity and coding prowess.

In-Person and Virtual Conference

April 23rd to 25th, 2024

Join us for a deep dive into the latest data science and AI trends, tools, and techniques, from LLMs to data analytics and from machine learning to responsible AI.


So what sets CodeLlama-34B Apart? With 34 billion parameters, it is part of the expansive CodeLlama model series. CodeLlama-34B is designed specifically to address the multifaceted needs of developers working across a wide array of programming languages including Python, Java, C++, TypeScript, C#, Bash, and PHP, among others.

One this that is interesting is that the capabilities of CodeLlama-34B extend far beyond simple code generation. It serves as a versatile companion for developers in several key areas. First, it can help with code generation. That’s because CodeLlama-34B can autonomously write code based on provided instructions, significantly streamlining the development process.

But that’s not all. It also has the capability to understand code. This is found in the model’s ability to analyze and interpret existing code sets. Which can offer insights and answers to complex coding queries.

Then there’s the holy grail of teams which is productivity enhancement. This is made possible by the model automating certain coding tasks and providing detailed explanations, removing developers from more mundane tasks and freeing them to exercise their talents where they’re needed in the project lifecycle.

If you love reading and want to check out some deep insights into the model, the development and capabilities of CodeLlama-34B are thoroughly documented in this research paper. The paper, offers an in-depth look at the model’s construction and its performance against competitive benchmarks, highlighting the rigorous research.

In-Person Data Engineering Conference

April 23rd to 24th, 2024 – Boston, MA

At our second annual Data Engineering Summit, Ai+ and ODSC are partnering to bring together the leading experts in data engineering and thousands of practitioners to explore different strategies for making data actionable.


As you can imagine, this could potentially have a pretty big impact on developers looking to enhance their team’s capabilities and bandwidth. In addition, it could allow teams to adjust resources elsewhere and allow for a great flow of creativity which can be aimed at problems earlier which could also save capital further down the road.



ODSC gathers the attendees, presenters, and companies that are shaping the present and future of data science and AI. ODSC hosts one of the largest gatherings of professional data scientists with major conferences in USA, Europe, and Asia.
