large language model

A large language model is a type of computer program that learns how to recognize and generate written language. The computer is given a large amount of text to read and analyze, such as books, articles, or web pages. By looking at the different words and how they are used, the computer can learn what different words mean and how they are used in different contexts. Then, the computer can use this knowledge to create its own original sentences, stories, poems, and more.
