Webinar: Generative AI & Large Language Models – A Primer

Generative AI and large language models represent a significant shift in the technological landscape, allowing us to interact and collaborate with data in ways that promise to transform our work and daily lives. In this episode of our Ascent Webinar series, Summit Partners Technologist-in-Residence Neil Roseman shares a primer on the key aspects of generative AI and large language models – what these models are, how they work and why, as operators and investors, we need to understand them.

"I propose to consider this question, ‘Can machines think?" - Alan Turing

“We’re now in the generation of generative AI where data has almost become a member of our team. We can interact with it, we can talk to it, and it can talk back to us. It’s very exciting. We know this is going to be a big technological change; I think the question many of us are trying to answer is, how big? What prediction can we make for the changes generative AI will bring to the way we work, the way we play, and the way we live in general?  Is it going to be as big as smartphones or the internet itself? We don’t know yet. One thing we do know is that humans tend to overestimate the impact of technology in the short term and underestimate its impact in the long term.“– Neil Roseman
