Large generative models - possibilities and limitations
Jaakko Vainio, Silo AI
Large generative models for a smaller language: GPT-3 for Finnish
Sampo Pyysalo, University of Turku
Bio: Sampo has been working in applied machine learning for natural language processing for two decades and is currently associate professor in data analytics at the University of Turku. His recent work focuses on large transformer-based language models, including the first transformer-based Finnish model, FinBERT, and upcoming generative models for Finnish based on the GPT-3 architecture. He is a PI of the EU-funded High-performance Language Technologies project that aims to introduce very large open language models for all EU languages, the LUMI pilot project FinnGen, and the LUMI extreme scale project Foundation for Finnish Artificial Intelligence.
Jaakko, and Sampo will be joined by Filip Ginter, Professor, University of Turku / Principal AI Scientist at Silo AI and Peter Sarlin, CEO at Silo AI for a panel discussion to further discuss:
- Where to best apply large generative models
- Applying generative models for smaller languages
- Do’s and dont’s of large generative models
- Are the generative models creative?
- What to expect from the next generation?
