A hands on introduction to Large Language Models like Bing Chat and ChatGPT
A two-hour hands-on workshop giving a brief history of the last 4 months of development of "Generative AI."
These tools, these Large Language Models, offer present promise and peril -- disruption -- to ways of working and of learning. Outside the "hype," these tools are "calculators for words" and allow the same manipulation and reflection of a user's words as a calculator offers for a user's numbers.
The workshop will guide users into using various free and paid tools, and the effective use of Large Language Models through chain of thought prompting.
Remember: a LLM is "Always confident and usually correct."
