You’re busy. You don’t have much time to figure out the deal with Large Language Models (aka LLMs). But you have some curiosity. Enter Andrej Karpathy and his presentation, “A Busy Person’s Introduction to Large Language Models.” It’s a one-hour tutorial that explains “the core technical component behind systems like ChatGPT, Claude, and Bard.” Designed for a general audience, the video explains what Large Language Models (LLMs) are, and where Karpathy sees them going. Andrej knows what he’s talking about. He currently works for OpenAI (the maker of ChatGPT), and, before that, he served as the director of artificial intelligence at Tesla.
As one YouTube commenter put it, “Andrej is hands-down one of the best ML [Machine Learning] educators out there.” At Stanford, he was the primary instructor for the first deep learning class, which has become one of the largest courses at the university. Enjoy.
