Cohere has created an LLM University to teach about Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Large Language Models (LLM). The proposed curriculum aims to give a rock-solid foundation in NLP, equipping one with the skills needed to develop their own applications.
Whether learning semantic search, generation, classification, embeddings, or any other NLP technique, this curriculum is suitable for all. The LLM University caters to learners from all backgrounds, covering everything from the basics to the most advanced topics in large language models (LLMs), ensuring one can harness the full potential of LLMs. Plus, learners have the opportunity to work on hands-on exercises, allowing them to build and deploy their very own models.
The curriculum covers LLMs starting from the basics, all the way to building and using text representation and text generation models. Its theoretical portion is explained clearly and with analogies and examples rather than formulas, and its practical portion contains lots of useful code examples that will help you solidify your knowledge.
It is a one-size-fits-all approach, and learners can pick their own path. For this reason, it is geared for anyone excited about NLP, from beginners in ML, any developer looking to build apps with language AI as well as advanced learners who are ready to put their skills into practice.
The curriculum will include topics such as working of LLMs, applications of LLMs, use of LLMs to build and deploy apps, and building apps, including semantic search models, text generators, etc. The university will also be conducting reading groups and hosting events exclusively.
