Start and improve your LLM skills in 2023
Start with Large Language Models (LLMs) - Become an expert for free!
Good morning fellow AI enthusiast! This week's iteration focuses on a NEW complete guide to start and improve your LLM skills in 2023 without an advanced background in the field and stay up-to-date with the latest news and state-of-the-art techniques!
Tl;dr: it is a curated list (by me) of useful resources to get into the world of LLMs and develop useful skills for working with them. Most resources are completely free, and the paid ones are optional.
You can become an expert without a Master's, Ph.D., or formal degree of any sort. I assure you.
But first, here's a very cool product that will be relevant to many of you: ServiceNow, the sponsor of this week's iteration, which is quite fitting since they also leverage generative AI capabilities to improve your workflow.
Supercharging Business Transformation with Gen AI & Code Generation Features (Sponsored by ServiceNow)
ServiceNow is a powerful cloud-based platform for the enterprise built by experts in workflow and automation. If you are looking for a single intelligent platform that is easy to use and helps streamline and automate your business processes, this is it. The ServiceNow platform is built on AI, and now has built-in Gen AI tools to help resolve issues faster and increase productivity.
For example, Now Assist for Creators has features like code generation, which lets users create code using natural language. This means you no longer need to be an expert developer to generate code and build apps. To learn more, check it out with the link below!
Now, let's get right to the point:
Artificial Intelligence is a fantastic field, and so are language models like GPT-4, Claude..., but it goes extremely fast. Don't miss out on the most important and exciting news by joining great communities, people, newsletters, and more you can all find in this guide!
This guide is intended for anyone with a small background in programming and machine learning. Simple python knowledge is enough to get you started. There is no specific order to follow, but a classic path would be from top to bottom. If you don't like reading books, skip it, if you don't want to follow an online course, you can skip it as well. There is not a single way to become a "LLM expert" and with motivation, you can absolutely achieve it.

Warning: If you have 0 programming or AI knowledge, please follow this guide I made for this exact purpose. Check out the python section mostly and then you will have a strong enough background to come back here!
If you are somewhat familiar with Python and AI, then I wish you happy learning!
Please, leave a star on GitHub and share it with your friends if you find it useful!
