Since its initial release in November 2022, ChatGPT (powered by OpenAI’s GPT language model) has taken the world by storm. But it’s not the only application using large language models (LLM) that is reshaping the enterprise landscape. Microsoft’s Bing AI (Sydney), Google’s Bard, and Meta’s LLaMA are also competing for dominance in the space of generative AI, powering technologies from advanced search to conversational agents. When the dust settles, the disruption will be nothing less than a reinvention of how organizations operate.


With the most recent release of OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model, it is being used by Morgan Stanley wealth management to organize its vast knowledge base, Be My Eyes to transform visual accessibility, Stripe to streamline user experience and combat fraud, and the Government of Iceland to preserve its language.

In this three-part executive sprint, Dr. Jimmy Lin, professor of computer science and the co-director of the AI Institute at the University of Waterloo, will explain in business-friendly terms how LLMs work, separate hype from the reality of current capabilities, and point to where these technologies seem to be headed in the near future. Participants will also come away with a roadmap that can help them determine where, when, and how LLMs can be applied to their organizations in a responsible manner.
