Table of Contents:

50_72What an exciting time to be a part of the LLM world! Last month, we partnered with to host the Llama 2 Hackathon with Clarifai. The hackathon was designed to nurture creativity in developing AI-first products using Meta's powerful Llama 2 LLM, with 7B, 13B, or 70B parameter variants. If you haven’t heard already, Clarifai makes it very easy to access Llama 2 models.

The Llama 2 Hackathon with Clarifai brought together developers, engineers, and data scientists from various backgrounds to build innovative LLM apps using Llama 2 and Clarifai. A total of 1,765 enthusiasts comprising 227 teams registered, resulting in an impressive 51 project submissions spanning multiple domains, including enterprise applications, content creation, fashion, health, and research/knowledge retrieval. Read on to check out some very creative apps.
