Event Abstract:

The landscape of artificial intelligence has been significantly reshaped by the advent of generative models, with prominent examples like GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) serving as examples of its transformative potential. This presentation delves into the evolution, current state, and future prospects of generative AI, with a specific focus on GPT-based models.

Beginning with an exploration of the historical context, we uncover the foundational concepts that paved the way for generative AI. From early neural networks to recurrent and convolutional architectures, the journey of AI's generative capabilities unfolds as we trace the development of techniques that culminated in the creation of GPT.

Moving to the present, we delve into the intricate workings of GPT-based models, unraveling their autoregressive nature and fine-tuning mechanisms. The presentation highlights the underlying architecture that facilitates context-aware text generation, along with a nuanced understanding of instruction-tuning and reinforcement learning from human feedback (RLHF) techniques that have propelled these models to new heights.

However, the story does not end with the present. As we peer into the future horizons, we navigate through the potential applications and ethical considerations that accompany the proliferation of generative AI. We examine the challenges posed by issues such as bias, misinformation, and unintended consequences, while also envisioning the positive impact these models could have on creative industries, personalized assistance, and beyond.
