The weird world of LLMs

Simon Willison recently gave a talk on Catching up on the weird world of LLMs that he’s published:

One way to think about it is that about 3 years ago, aliens landed on Earth. They handed over a USB stick and then disappeared. Since then we’ve been poking the thing they gave us with a stick, trying to figure out what it does and how it works.

Well worth a read.
