Large Language Model (LLM)

« Back to Glossary Index

Large Language Model (LLM) is a type of artificial intelligence model specifically designed to understand, generate, and manipulate human language. LLMs are characterized by their vast number of parameters, often ranging from hundreds of millions to hundreds of billions, enabling them to capture intricate patterns in large datasets. Key aspects of LLMs include:

Architecture: LLMs typically employ deep learning architectures, such as Transformer-based designs, which allow them to process sequences of data (like sentences) in parallel and capture long-range dependencies in text.

Training Data: LLMs are trained on vast amounts of text data, often encompassing large portions of the internet, which allows them to learn grammar, facts about the world, reasoning abilities, and even some level of common sense.

Transfer Learning: After being trained on general text data, LLMs can be fine-tuned on specific tasks or datasets, enabling them to perform a wide range of language tasks, from translation and summarization to question-answering and content generation.

Capabilities: Due to their size and the amount of data they’re trained on, LLMs can generate coherent and contextually relevant text over long passages, understand nuances, and even exhibit creativity in certain tasks.

Limitations: While LLMs are powerful, they can sometimes produce incorrect or biased information, as they are only as good as the data they were trained on. They lack true understanding and reasoning in the way humans do and primarily rely on patterns they’ve seen during training.

Applications: LLMs have a wide range of applications, including chatbots, content generation, code completion, virtual assistants, and more.
