CAIRE Seminar - ChatGPT: What It Can and Cannot Do?

10:30am - 12:00pm
Lecture Theatre C, Academic Building

Is ChatGPT the latest revolution in AI? Or is it part of an evolution? Is it close to AGI? Or just a more sophisticated chatbot? What can it do and cannot do? What jobs will it replace? How should you use it? 

In this talk, I will present a brief overview of neural conversational systems and large language models (LLMs), and how ChatGPT came about. I will also present the result of a first extensive technical evaluation of ChatGPT using 23 data sets covering 8 different common NLP application tasks. I will discuss ChatGPT in terms of its ability to multitask, to reason, to interact, and how it hallucinates.  I will outline potential general improvements we need to make to make LLM-based NLP systems more reliable and trustworthy.
