A hands on introduction to Large Language Models like Bing Chat and ChatGPT https://dresa.org.au/materials/a-hands-on-introduction-to-large-language-models-like-bing-chat-and-chatgpt Event run 7 June at the MQ Incubator. Event description: A two-hour hands-on workshop giving a brief history of the last 4 months of development of "Generative AI." These tools, these Large Language Models, offer present promise and peril -- disruption -- to ways of working and of learning. Outside the "hype," these tools are "calculators for words" and allow the same manipulation and reflection of a user's words as a calculator offers for a user's numbers. The workshop will guide users into using various free and paid tools, and the effective use of Large Language Models through chain of thought prompting. Remember: a LLM is "Always confident and usually correct." OSF Description (LLM generated): This two-hour workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to the world of Large Language Models (LLMs), focusing on the recent advancements in Generative AI. Participants will gain insights into the development and functionality of prominent LLMs such as Bing Chat and ChatGPT. The workshop will delve into the concept of LLMs as "calculators for words," highlighting their potential to revolutionize ways of working and learning. The session will explore the principles of Prompt Engineering and Transactional Prompting, demonstrating how consistent prompts can yield reliable and reproducible results. Participants will also learn about the practical applications of LLMs, including editing and proofreading papers, generating technical documentation, recipe ideation, and more. The workshop emphasizes the importance of understanding the terms of use and the responsibilities that come with using these powerful AI tools. By the end of the session, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively use LLMs in various contexts, guided by the mantra that a LLM is "Always confident and usually correct."

HPC file systems and what users need to consider for appropriate and efficient usage https://dresa.org.au/materials/hpc-file-systems-and-what-users-need-to-consider-for-appropriate-and-efficient-usage Three videos on miscellaneous aspects of HPC usage - useful reference for new users of HPC systems. 1 – General overview of different file systems that might be available on HPC. The video goes through shared file systems such as /home and /scratch, local compute node file systems (local scratch or $TMPDIR) and storage file system. It outlines what users need to consider if they wish to use any of these in their workflows. 2 – Overview of the different directories that might be present on HPC. These could include /home, /scratch, /opt, /lib and lib64, /sw and others. 3 – Overview of the Message-of-the-day file and the message that is displayed to users every time they log in. This displays info about general help and often current problems or upcoming outages. QCIF Training (training@qcif.edu.au) HPC, high performance computer, File systems
