The meteoric rise of Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT has kickstarted a new era in computing, wherein answers to even the most obscure questions are right at our fingertips. Advancements in LLMs have, in particular, opened up an entire new world of possibilities in the medical field. LLMs are now being used to answer complex medical questions about patients’ electronic health records, enabling clinicians to focus on identifying the best treatment paths for their patients. In this lecture, we’ll skim the surface of how LLMs work and discuss how they can be applied in the biomedical and data science domains.
