How to steer foundation models?

New Technologies in Mathematics Seminar

Title: How to steer foundation models?

Abstract: By conditioning on natural language instructions, foundation models and large language models (LLMs) have displayed impressive capabilities as general-purpose computers. However, task performance depends significantly on the quality of the prompt used to steer the model. Due to the lack of knowledge of how foundation models work, most effective prompts have been handcrafted by humans through a demanding trial-and-error process. To reduce the human effort in this alignment process, I will discuss a few approaches to steer these powerful models to excel in various downstream language and image tasks.
