Workshops on generative artificial intelligence with experts from Microsoft and Żabka Group

Representatives of SRG Data Science took part in the “AI School” workshops for students, organized by Microsoft and Żabka Group. This meeting was an excellent opportunity to learn about the world of generative artificial intelligence. The classes consisted of two parts: theoretical and practical.

During the first part, students gained knowledge about the most effective techniques for designing and optimizing initial instructions for language models (so-called “prompt engineering”), such as GPT-3 or GPT-4. The goal of this process is to obtain the most accurate, relevant and useful answers from the model.

During the workshops, students used the Azure AI Studio tool – a platform for creating applications using generative artificial intelligence algorithms, providing tools for exploring, building, testing and implementing projects. There was also a discussion of Large Language Models, which constitute the foundation for creating language assistants. Students discovered how changing various parameters affects the results generated by ChatGPT.

In the practical part, students experimented with different variants of models, such as GPT-4 or GPT-3.5 Turbo. They also learned how to efficiently use the so-called tokens when working with ChateGPT. It is worth mentioning that “GPT-3.5 Turbo” is an improved version of the GPT-3.5 model, designed to respond faster, although it may have limitations in understanding more complex queries and creating more advanced content. Then ChatGPT-4, which is a newer and more advanced version, is characterized by a greater ability to understand complex queries, generate more detailed and precise answers and a better ability to create high-level content. The main difference between these two models is their natural language processing capabilities and the complexity of the generated responses.

The event took place on December 15, 2023. The workshops were conducted by Kamil Stachowicz and Błażej Miśkiewicz.
