Exploring the Capabilities of Language Models
with Giuseppe Serra

The workshop delves into the world of transformer-based models. With a particular focus on state-of-the-art generative language models, such as GPT and T5, attendees will gain insights into their architecture, underlying principles, and impressive language processing capabilities.
The lab session is designed to be interactive and hands-on, with participants actively engaging in practical exercises using jupyter notebooks. Through guided examples and coding activities, attendees will have the opportunity to explore the full potential of language models firsthand.
The objective of the lab session is to empower participants to independently explore and experiment with these powerful language models.

No prior experience with transformer models is required to participate in this workshop.
