ASSET Seminar: “Large Language Models in Medicine: Opportunities and Challenges” (Mark Dredze, Johns Hopkins University)

February 28 at 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM


The rapid advance of AI driven by Large Language Models (LLMs), like ChatGPT, has led to impressive results across a range of different use cases. This has included several models developed for the medical domain which have exhibited surprising behaviors, such as answering medical questions and performing well on medical licensing exams. These results have demonstrated the coming transformation of medicine by AI. In this talk, I will provide an overview of some of the recent advances in this area, and discuss challenges and opportunities for the use of these models in medicine.
