Executive sprint | ChatGPT and the Large Language Model Revolution

Since its initial release in November 2022, ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. But it’s not the only large language model (LLM) reshaping the enterprise landscape. Microsoft’s Bing AI (Sydney), Google’s Bard, and Meta’s LLaMA are also competing for dominance in the space of generative AI, powering technologies from advanced search to conversational agents. When the dust settles, the disruption will be nothing less than a reinvention of how organizations operate.

In this three-part executive sprint, Dr. Jimmy Lin, Professor of Computer Science and the co-director of the AI Institute at the University of Waterloo, will explain in business-friendly terms how LLMs work, separate hype from the reality of current capabilities, and point to where these technologies seem to be headed in the near future. Participants will also come away with a roadmap that can help them determine where, when, and how LLMs can be applied to their organizations in a responsible manner.

Who will it benefit?

This executive sprint is designed for:

  • organizational leaders (executives of all levels) who wish to understand how LLMs are reshaping the business and government sectors
  • leaders who need to know what is required to implement LLM applications in their organizations
  • senior managers and directors who wish to enhance their digital-ready skill sets
  • consultants who wish to further understand LLMs and their applications
