Exploring the Capabilities of Large Language Models

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has never been more relevant. Companies and governments around the world are using it to streamline operations and save themselves money. A form of AI that has achieved immense popularity in recent years is LLMs (Large Language Models). These programs can be used to recognize and generate human language text. More simply, you feed LLMs prompts and commands and they churn out text for you. You can use these programs to write assignments, stories, and marketing copy. This post will explore LLMs in more detail, telling you what their capabilities are so that you know how to make use of them.

Building LLMs

If you want your own custom LLM, you need to hire an expert. Unless you have significant coding experience, the chances of you being able to build your own platform are slim to none. Building an LLM platform alone is one of the hardest things a person can do. If you plan on hiring an agency to build one for you, make sure that you conduct extensive online research and find one with experience. The more experienced an agency is, the better the software they develop for you is going to be. An agency’s reviews will give you insight into their level of experience. Check their portfolio out as well. A company’s portfolio will showcase projects they have worked on in the past.

Generating Content

In terms of what you can use LLMs for, their most popular application is content generation. Businesses rely on content today. If you run one, the chances are that you post content daily. Search engines won’t rank your website highly if you don’t post reliable, authoritative content on a regular basis. Make sure that when you are posting content to your site that you alter it slightly so it’s not entirely AI-generated. Content that has been created exclusively by AI tools can be very obvious. It’s very easy to tell when you are reading something that has been written by a machine.

AI Assistants

AI assistants are more popular than ever. Most websites have popup chatbots. If you have ever visited a website before and have started receiving real-time messages, they were from a chatbot. The use of AI assistants has made customers’ lives much easier. They no longer have to navigate to the ‘Help me’ section of websites in order to get their questions, concerns, and queries addressed. All they need to do is talk to the chatbot that has popped up to them.

Answering Questions

Search engines use LLMs to answer people’s questions. The reason they do this is so that they can provide direct, human-like responses. Previously, the tools employed by search engines to answer people’s questions were very robotic. Robotic responses come across as hostile and can put people off. If you are interested in using LLMs to answer questions on your website, make sure that you find the best developer you can. As mentioned above, the better a developer is, the more likely it is that their software is going to benefit your company. A developer’s reviews will tell you everything you need to know about them.  

Life Science

Over the course of the last few years, life scientists have started turning to LLMs to help them in different aspects of their research. These include protein structure prediction, the discovery of drugs and their subsequent design, molecular dynamics simulations, genomic analysis, biological text mining, and drug-target interaction prediction. The area of life sciences that experts are most excited about as it relates to LLM applications is the development of drugs. With the global population growing, diseases and illnesses are becoming a lot more common. Leaders in healthcare predict that in the coming years, pandemics are going to become a lot more common. Using AI to develop and design drugs can save pharmaceutical companies and life scientists a lot of time.

Write Software

LLMs can be used to write software. Software is absolutely essential in modern business. It’s an extremely effective way of making money and it can save people time. An example of a type of software that’s used by businesses today is automation software, which is used to streamline complex and tiresome administrative work. If you are planning on using LLMs to write software (or you want somebody to use LLMs on your behalf), make sure that you come up with an effective plan. You need to map out your software’s development. Also, ensure that you know exactly what you want your software to do. If you are not careful and do not put the right prompts in, you could end up getting software that’s different from what you originally wanted.

Organize Feedback

Did you know that LLMs can be used to organize customer feedback? Since consumers seldom turn to their high streets or city centers when they want to buy products anymore, reviews have become a great way for customers to determine whether or not vendors are worth buying products from. This is because they have access to feedback left by other past customers. In this feedback, they can find out what a vendor is like to do business with. However, it can be hard to organize reviews manually. LLMs are a great way for you to sort your reviews out, ensuring they are properly ranked and laid out on your website. Most people rank by the level of stars customers have left, so consider organizing yours like that too.

Financial Summaries

Accountancy firms and financial organizations have started to use LLMs to summarize financial reports and statements for them. Something unrelated that’s also worth noting is that the same organizations have increasingly started using AI to help them predict future market trends, allowing them to increase their profits. If using machine algorithms to make trading predictions interests you, you need to conduct extensive research and find the best tools you can. You also need to perform your own research to try and verify the predictions of AI tools.

AI can be used for many different things. One form of AI that has become much more important is LLMs. If you are interested in using them, consider hiring an agency to build one for you. You can use the guidance given above to find a suitable company.
