LiveCodeBench: Holistic and Contamination Free Evaluation of Large Language Models for Code

When and Where

Friday, July 12, 2024 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm


Naman Jain, UC Berkeley


In this talk we introduce LiveCodeBench, a comprehensive and contamination-free benchmark for LLMs in code, which continuously collects new problems from LeetCode, AtCoder, and CodeForces. LiveCodeBench evaluates a wide range of capabilities, including self-repair, code execution, and test output prediction. It currently hosts 400 coding problems published between May 2023 and May 2024. We evaluated 18 base LLMs and 34 instruction-tuned LLMs, presenting findings on contamination, performance comparisons, and potential overfitting.

Please join the event. Everyone is welcome—it is free and you do not need to be affiliated with the university.
