Learning Health Systems seek to learn from experience and continuously improve outcomes. Large Language Models (LLMs) are deep-learning neural networks with billions of parameters. They are trained using large collections of written content to both identify the characteristics of text and to generate new text (including summaries and translations).
This session will provide an overview of how LLMs work and how they might be applied to specific tasks and use cases in healthcare to support the goals of a Learning Health System.
