In this pathway, you will dive into the fascinating world of generative AI tools and explore the capabilities of Chat GPT, as well as other tools like Microsoft Co-Pilot. Large Language Models (LLMs) are advanced artificial intelligence systems designed to understand and generate human-like text. AI, a field of computer science, encompasses technologies like natural language processing and machine learning. Chat GPT, developed by OpenAI, is a prominent example of an LLM that excels at generating human-like text responses. You will also explore Microsoft Co-Pilot, an AI tool assisting developers with code completions and contextual guidance. Through this pathway, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of LLMs, AI, and their applications in Chat GPT and Microsoft Co-Pilot, unveiling the incredible potential of these cutting-edge technologies.

Introduction to LLM and Generative AI

[1.1] The difference between Large Language Models and Generative AI is as...

Large Language Models and Generative AI are related but different concepts.

Large Language Models are neural network-based models that are trained on large amounts of text data to generate natural language text. These models use advanced techniques such as attention mechanisms, self-attention, and pre-training to learn the statistical patterns and structures of natural language.

Generative AI, on the other hand, is a broader concept that refers to any artificial intelligence system that can create new data, such as images, music, or text. Generative AI techniques include generative adversarial networks (GANs), variational autoencoders (VAEs), and autoregressive models such as Large Language Models.

In essence, Large Language Models are a specific type of Generative AI that focuses on generating natural language text. These models can be used for a wide range of applications such as text completion, text summarization, language translation, and text generation.

However, not all Generative AI techniques focus on generating natural language text, and some may generate other types of data such as images or music. So, while Large Language Models are a type of Generative AI, the two terms are not interchangeable.

Large Language Models (LLM) Risk Mitigation

[2.1] Risks of Large Language Models (LLM) [Video]

With all the excitement around chatGPT, it’s easy to lose sight of the unique risks of generative AI. Large language models (LLMs) — a form of generative AI — are really good at creating prose that sounds like a native speaker. But because they’re so good at it, large language models may give a false impression they possess actual understanding. They don’t! In this video, Phaedra Boinodiris explains the potential risks of relying on large language models to your business, brand, or even society. She also presents mitigation strategies for reducing these risks.
