The Large Language Models are a rapidly growing field that is shaping the future of machine learning. In this event, you will learn about the latest developments in the LLM community, including the big players, relevant libraries and frameworks, and available models. You will also learn about the requirements for building a model and the different ways models are being used. Additionally, you will explore the limitations of LLMs and the opportunities available due to their growth. 

During the event, you will also be given the opportunity to engage in a hands-on lab where you can browse inventories of available models, analyse models, and pick one suitable for specific use cases. You will also learn how to check the details and requirements of the model and use LLM APIs in software. By the end of the event, you will have a good understanding of the LLM community and the skills to build and use LLMs in your own projects.
