Rockets: A Good Analogy for AI Language Models

In this contributed article, Varun Singh, President and co-founder of Moveworks, sees rockets as a fitting analogy for AI language models. While the core engines impress, he explains the critical role of Vernier Thrusters in providing stability for the larger engine. Likewise, large language models need the addition of smaller, specialized models to enable oversight and real-world grounding. With the right thrusters in place, enterprises can steer high-powered language models in the right direction.
