The Three Essential Methods to Evaluate a New Language Model
New LLMs are released every week, and if you’re like me, you might ask yourself: Does this one finally fit all the use cases I want to utilise an LLM for? In this tutorial, I will share the techniques that I use to evaluate new LLMs.... Read more
2023 Was the Year of Large Language Models: Then and Now
The year 2023 has witnessed an unprecedented surge in the development of large language models, with new models emerging at an astonishing pace. So let’s take a look at these advancements, who pushed them forward, and what the year entails. In the early months of the... Read more
RAG and LLM: A New Frontier in Dynamic Language Modeling
What challenges do LLMs bring? Traditional language models, such as GPT-4 and Llama2, face inherent limitations. Their static nature binds them to a fixed knowledge cut-off, leaving them unaware of developments post their last training date. While they encapsulate vast amounts of data, there’s a cap...
