Transformers - Opportunities and Limitations in Real World Applications

[In-person/hybrid event]:

Five months ago, Microsoft and NVIDIA introduced the largest and the most powerful transformer-based language model Megatron-Turing Natural Language Generation model (MT-NLG). How excited should we be about this mega-model trend?

Join the talk with Karl Moritz Hermann, Founder and CEO of Saiga, to discuss this topic in more detail:

  • Have super large-scale language models changed how we should think about AI in the context of natural language processing?
  • What are the limitations of hyper-scale models, particularly when applied to real-world applications?
  • Can hyper-scale models compensate for a lack of multi-modal or embodied learning?
  • And, of course: are large scale models conscious?
