Having a supportive workplace can mean having the opportunity to pursue what you’re passionate about. For Booz Allen Lead Scientist Stella Biderman, this involves studying artificial intelligence (AI), exploring its potential and limitations, and helping to make understanding of this transformative technology open to all.
At Booz Allen, Stella is researching large language models and algorithms like ChatGPT and DALL-E that can recognize, summarize, translate, predict, and generate content based on the knowledge they gain from huge datasets.
“As large language models proliferate throughout society, it’s really important to understand what they can and cannot do,” Stella says. “One critical way to ensure this happens is through training and publicly releasing models that can be studied by people or organizations that can’t afford to train their own.”
