Talk on Large Language Models (LLM) by Prof. PK

On 10th March 2024, over three exhilarating hours, a hands-on workshop on Large Language Model (LLM) V1.0 unfolded with fervor and excitement by Prof. Ponnurangam Kumaraguru. Attended by over a hundred enthusiastic students from various engineering colleges around Hyderabad, the workshop delved deep into the intricacies of natural language processing and machine learning. Topics ranging from fundamental concepts like probability distribution, N-grams, and word embeddings to advanced techniques such as RNNs, LSTMs, sequence-to-sequence models, and transformers were explored with zeal. Participants engaged in practical exercises on encoder-decoder architectures, multi-head attention mechanisms, tokenization strategies, pre-training, fine-tuning, and applications like language modeling and classification. As the workshop came to a close, anticipation for the upcoming V2.0 session filled the air, promising further exploration and discovery in the realm of large language models.
