Course Overview

GPT-3 showed the world that AI systems can be made more general and more capable simply via scaling, by using vast amounts of processing power and data to train gigantic models with a tremendous number of weights. There’s no known theoretical limit to how far scaling can go. Here, we will explore the new wave of AI systems, as well as key considerations when using or building these systems.

 


What topics will be covered

  • Describe what prompt engineering is, and why it’s become such an important skill in the age of powerful language models.
  • Explain what language models are really trying to do, and how that can lead them to behave pathologically.
  • Recognize how AI can be used to generate images.
  • Identify foundation models, and why they’ve changed the economics of AI.
