Some thoughts on LLMs
The comparison between the current stage of Large Language Models (LLMs) and the introduction of databases in the computer industry is related to the potential impact of LLMs on various applications and industries. Just as databases provided a foundation for various computer systems like Google Search and Gmail, LLMs are becoming a foundation for various language-related applications.
Companies like Google have already demonstrated promising results with multiple LLMs, such as Bard, at their I/O conference. OpenAI has also partnered with Microsoft to develop innovative LLM solutions. In addition, the open-source community is making significant contributions to the development of LLMs, as seen with projects like Vicuna.
Looking into the future, the open-source solutions may play an essential role in running custom-tuned on-premise or on-device LLMs. This highlights the potential for innovative solutions and applications that can be built on top of these LLMs.
One industry that could benefit significantly from LLMs is law and tax filing. With a custom LLM, it would be possible to generate a form ready to be filed by taking in the necessary documents. Although this would be a challenging feat, it could be transformative in simplifying the filing process for everyone.
Overall, the field of LLMs is still in its early stages, and there is much more potential for innovative solutions and applications in various industries. As technology continues to advance, we can expect even more exciting developments in the field of LLMs.
