LaMDA: Next Generation Chatbots

Short intro to Google's LaMDA.   Looking for smarter conversations.  Hope to use this in  upcoming applications.

Google’s LaMDA: The Next Generation of Chatbots

First, we had GPT-3. Now we have LaMDA.,    By Alberto Romero

In mid-2020 OpenAI presented the all-powerful language system GPT-3. It revolutionized the world and landed headlines in very important media outlet magazines. This incredible technology can create fiction, poetry, music, code, and many other amazing things (I wrote a complete overview of GPT-3 for Towards Data Science if you want to check it out).

It was expected that other big tech companies wouldn’t fall behind. Indeed, some days ago at Google I/O annual conference, Google executives presented the last research and technologies of the big firm. One of them stole the show: LaMDA, a conversational AI capable of having human-like conversations.

In this article, I’m going to review the little we know today about this tech and how it works.

This architecture allows the model to predict text focusing only on how previous words relate to each other (attention mechanism).  ... '
