Learn Generative AI and Large Language Models

Upskill to The Next Frontier of AI

Tutorial Overview

Large Language Models

This hands-on tutorial serves as a comprehensive introduction to Large Language Models (LLMs), covering a spectrum of topics from their differentiation from other language models to their underlying architecture and practical applications. It delves into the technical aspects, such as the transformer architecture and the attention mechanism, which are the cornerstones of modern language models. 

The tutorial also explores the applications of LLMs, focusing on zero-shot learning, few-shot learning, and fine-tuning, which showcase the models' ability to adapt and perform tasks with limited to no examples. Furthermore, it introduces the concept of flow chaining as a method to generate coherent and extended text, demonstrating its usefulness in tackling token limitations in real-world scenarios such as Q&A bots. Through practical examples and code snippets, participants are given a hands-on experience on how to utilize and harness the power of LLMs across various domains.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Introduction to Large Language Models (LLMs)
  • Why Are LLMs So Powerful 
  • The Transformer Architecture
  • The Application of LLMs
  • Flow Chaining
