Generative AI models have demonstrated remarkable capabilities in language-related tasks. However, their potential extends into realms of artificial general intelligence far beyond language domains, encompassing non-language domains like genetic sequences, machine log data, financial markets data, time series data, etc. Disruptive AI architectures like transformers (the “T” in “GPT”) enable models to capture long-range dependencies, making it adept at learning patterns within non-language data.
Techniques like layer normalization ensures stable learning dynamics, allowing the model to generalize effectively. Supervised fine-tuning can reapply innate understanding of complex language-like structures in foundational models to new domains with little training data. Input encoding can work effectively with non-language by using domain-specific tokenization techniques such as nucleotide triplets for genetic sequences or sequences of event for log data. Emergent reasoning techniques like chain-of-thought/plan-of-action and self-instruct can drive continuous refinement and error control without needing large teams of domain experts.
[The Hive Think Tank](https://www.meetup.com/sf-bay-areas-big-data-think-tank/) is doing a series of online events on Generative AI. In this event organized by The Hive Think Tank, our panel of Al leaders will discuss this second, broader wave of disruptions that generative Al will be bringing upon us. The panel will also discuss the ethical implications of creating complex and synthetic non-language data, especially in areas like genetics and finance. As Al comes to the forefront of driving digitization globally, these subtler second-order use-cases will reshape growth, work and equity value across a wider set of verticals.
