Launch: Large Language Models (LLM) Working Group’s Living White Paper

Join AI Forum NZ’s Large Language Models (LLM) Working Group to learn more about their white paper on LLM and Generative AI in New Zealand currently in development.

The technology is moving so fast that a traditional white paper would be out of date the moment we crossed the final T, so the Working Group has partnered with IBM watsonx to produce a proof of concept for a living library of information that will be launched at this webinar and available for you to question afterwards.

The purpose of the white paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of the benefits, challenges, and governance considerations associated with LLMs in New Zealand, as well as best practices for deploying and managing these models in the local context. This will help organisations and individuals make informed decisions about how to use LLMs responsibly and ethically.
