Some recent studies on large language models


Large language models (LLMs) have become very popular nowadays and are widely used for solving various natural language processing problems. Researchers are working towards benchmarking these LLMs on various tasks like temporal reasoning and educational domains to understand their biases towards different genders, religions, and castes. In this talk, I will discuss some recent biasness studies of the LLMs and our efforts of utilizing LLM and vision language models (VLMs) in solving the tasks of medical question summarization, developing some plant-care dialogue assistant, generating interventions to help stop spreading hate speech.
