LLMs: From Promise to Practical Value
This Technology Deep Dive is hosted by our member organisation, Analytics Engines.
The meteoric rise of Large Language Models (LLMs) has sent shockwaves through the tech industry, captivating the imagination of technologists and the public alike. With their promise of unlocking solutions to intricate problems, LLMs like ChatGPT, Bard, Claude, and LLAMA have captured the spotlight, leaving many eager to translate this potential into practical value.
At Analytics Engines, we've taken the lead in harnessing the power of LLMs, integrating them into our Data Science delivery capabilities. Our expertise, honed through successful implementations across diverse sectors, has established us as experts in this space.
Jordan's presentation will take you on a journey through the historical roots of LLMs, employing the colourful cast of "The Muppets" to illustrate the evolution of the technology. Delving into his real-world experiences of building LLM solutions, Jordan will share his insights, peppered with humorous anecdotes and practical advice, to guide you towards optimizing LLM utilization in real-world environments.
