From Large Language Models to complex cognitive models

Posted by Volodymyr Pavliukevych on November 23, 2023 · 1 min read


One intriguing aspect of Andrej Karpathy’s recent introduction to Large Language Models caught my attention. He began integrating terms from cognitive psychology, such as “gestalt,” “hallucination,” and the first and second systems of thinking (as described in Daniel Kahneman’s book). This suggests a potential shift toward more complex cognitive models in his work.

Incidentally, were you aware that the Cambridge Dictionary named ‘hallucinate’ as the word of the year for 2023?
