The goal of this workshop is to try to understand the ongoing revolution in transformers and large language models (LLMs) through a wide lens (including neuroscience, physics, cognitive science, and computation) in a relaxed setting that facilitates discussion, debate, and intellectual cross-pollination. The workshop will touch on issues of fairness, trust, and alignment, and will seek to illuminate how industry and academia, and theory and systems, can collaborate.
