Event Description

Recent advances have ushered in exciting developments in natural language processing (NLP), especially with the development of large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT that can translate text, answer questions, and even hold spoken conversations with humans. This seminar will introduce LLMs, describe how they work at a high level and discuss what they can and cannot do at present. There will also be a practical component focusing on applications and tools that can be built with LLMs to assist in areas like education, healthcare, social studies, and other fields. Prior programming experience will be helpful for the hands-on component, although not strictly necessary.
