Large language models
Large language models like ChatGPT or PaLM 2 promise powerful AI solutions for the economy and society. However, their results are not always understandable, often flawed, or biased. Experts of the Working Group Technological Enablers and Data Science from the Plattform Lernende Systeme see research in Germany in a good position to address the technical challenges of AI technology, develop it in line with European values, and fully exploit its potential for Germany and Europe. The prerequisite is a European ecosystem for the development of large language models, as well as research closely aligned with practical applications that facilitates the transfer to industrial practice. The whitepaper identifies the most urgent research needs and options for action.
