AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is a broad field in technology where machines are designed to mimic human-like thinking and decision-making.

LLMs, or Large Language Models, are a specialized subset of AI focused on understanding and generating human language, enabling complex interactions like conversation and writing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)


It is similar to the neural network of the brain, seemingly thinking, learning, and making decisions on its own, much like a human does.

Large Learning Model (LLM)


They are the type of AI that is able to hold a conversation, trained to understand & use human language by learning from large amounts of text.
