Note that the table only lists open source models that are for free commercial use.

Note: All models are subject to their applicable licenses and any other
attendant restrictions. This list is solely for informational purposes.

* Evaluating LLMs is difficult and remains an area of active research. Many LLMs are not on this list, and the LLMs on this list may not be perfect for all use cases. These models are ones we have seen work well in the listed scenarios. Also, there are some other models that are best in class but not commercially licensed, such as vicuna-13b and LLaMA.

In general, the space is evolving rapidly. Our recommendation is to design your architecture in a way that would enable you to quickly experiment and swap out specific models easily.
