Large Language Models (LLMs), such as GPT-3, ChatGPT, and GPT-4, have revolutionized the field of AI with their remarkable capabilities in natural language understanding and generation. LLMs are widely used in various applications such as voice assistants, recommender systems, content-generation models like ChatGPT, and text-to-image models like Dall-E. However, these powerful models also pose significant challenges for their safe and ethical deployment. How can we ensure that LLMs are fair, safe, privacy-preserving, explainable, and controllable?
We are pleased to announce that, for the first time at KDD, we are organizing a dedicated full-day event---the "Large Language Model Day (LLM Day)." This event aims to provide a platform for academic researchers and industry practitioners to discuss the latest advances and open problems in the field of large language models (LLMs). The event will focus on two main themes:
- Recent Progress of Foundational LLMs: This theme will highlight the latest advancements in foundational LLMs and their applications across different domains. It will provide attendees with insights into the cutting-edge developments and potential applications of LLMs.
- Building Trustworthy LLMs: This theme will address the open issues and challenges associated with building trustworthy LLMs. Topics of discussion will include fairness, safety, privacy preservation, explainability, and controllability. By tackling these challenges, we aim to ensure that LLMs are developed and deployed in an ethical and responsible manner.
During the Large Language Model Day, we are excited to host a diverse range of renowned invited speakers from world-class research institutions. These experts will share their knowledge and perspectives, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and promoting the exchange of ideas among participants. Our goal is to contribute to the development and use of LLMs that not only push the boundaries of AI but also benefit humanity as a whole.
Join us at KDD 2023 for this special day dedicated to exploring the vast potential and challenges of large language models. Together, we can shape the future of AI and ensure its responsible and impactful deployment.
