The Linguistics Behind the AI Models

If you’re AI-curious, care about linguistics, or appreciate visual storytelling, you’ll love this piece by the Financial Times.

"Generative AI exists because of the transformer” is an elegant, compelling explanation of why tools like ChatGPT can surpass “human-level performance” on many academic and professional tests. The article delves into the interactions between words, sentences, and paragraphs in ways that will expand how you relate to language.

After this quick, visually compelling read, you’ll leave with a better understanding of what is happening inside your favorite ChatBot.

Any of you who have tried to explain LLMs and AI will appreciate this.

Thanks to Gabriel Straub for highlighting this.

Thank you to Madhumita Murgia and the FT Visual Story Telling Team.
