LLMs are large-scale, pre-trained, statistical language models based on neural networks. (source)

In short, a Large Language Model (LLM) is a transformer that has more than 10 B parameters and has been trained on a huge amount of text in an unsupervised manner. In other words, it is a transformer that has been scaled by training time, number of parameters, and data size. Scaling had a positive impact on downstream tasks and brought out several new properties (such as in-context learning):

Early language models mainly aim to model and generate text data, while latest language models (e.g., GPT-4) focus on complex task solving. From language modeling to task solving, it is…
