    Avenging Polanyi's Revenge: Exploiting the Approximate Omniscience of LLMs in Planning without Deluding Yourself In the Process

    August 21, 2023  |  Subbarao Kambhampati
    Abstract: LLMs are on track to reverse what seemed like an inexorable shift of AI from explicit to tacit knowledge tasks. Trained as they are on everything ever written on the web, LLMs exhibit "approximate omniscience"--they can provide answers to all sorts of queries, with nary a guarantee. This could herald a…

  • Do language models have coherent mental models of everyday things? Thumbnail

    Do language models have coherent mental models of everyday things?

    June 22, 2023  |  Yuling Gu
    When people think of everyday things like an egg, they typically have a mental image associated with it. This allows them to correctly judge, for example, that "the yolk surrounds the shell" is a false statement. Do language models similarly have a coherent picture of such everyday things? To investigate this, we…

  • Evaluating ethical and social risks from large models Thumbnail

    Evaluating ethical and social risks from large models

    Abstract: Large generative models create the potential for many beneficial use cases, but they also raise significant ethical and social risks of harm. How can we know whether a large model is aligned with our expectations? In this talk, we first present a taxonomy of ethical and social risks developed by a…
