Large Language Models (LLMs), or Generative AI, were developed for translation of languages but turn out to be surprisingly effective in many other applications.

In this webinar, experts will provide a general, non-technical introduction to the latest exciting development in this technology, how these models are created and how they work, and some of the opportunities and challenges associated with them. In addition, they will explore the risks that may arise, and discuss how ACCA members may make best use of the technology.

We aim to provide you with high-level answers to the following:

  • What is AI and Machine Learning?
  • What are Large Language Models and how do these work?
  • What are their potential applications?
  • Are there problems or issues with using them?
  • What are the risks?
  • How should ACCA members who are sole practitioners or who work for small enterprises best make use of the technology?

The webinar will be presented by Professor Peter McBurney and Dr David Kohan Marzagão, who both teach and undertake research in AI in the Informatics Department at King’s College London.
