Natural Language Processing (NLP) has witnessed significant advancements recently, with Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT, GPT-4 and LLaMA pushing the boundaries of machine reading comprehension and language generation.

In this talk, Professor Yulan He will delve into the question of whether these LLMs have successfully overcome the challenges of NLP by examining their capabilities in a range of NLP tasks. She will conclude her talk with the exciting future of AI-driven language understanding.

This event is in-person only. Please register on Eventbrite.
