The Energy Footprint of Humans and Large Language Models

Each time someone interacts with a large language model (LLM), there is an energy cost in running the model for inference. In addition, there is an energy cost in the preparation and training of the model before it was brought to production. It is relatively easy to look at these costs in terms of kilowatt-hours (kWh), but it is hard to compare that...

Is Computing a Discipline in Crisis?

Computing has changed significantly since the launch of ChatGPT in 2022. For decades, artificial intelligence (AI) was a subfield of computer science that overpromised and underdelivered. Language mastery has been the holy grail of AI from its early days. Suddenly, computers can communicate fluently in natural language—sometimes nonsense, but...

LLM Hallucinations: A Bug or A Feature?

Large Language Models (LLMs) can do astonishing things, like summarize complex data or generate creative content in seconds. Unfortunately, they also make things up— euphemistically referred to as hallucinating. Hallucinations happen when a model outputs plausible sounding but inaccurate, even nonsensical, responses to prompts, which can undermine LLMs’...
