Physics ∩ ML Seminar
Neural Scaling Laws and GPT-3
Time: 11:00 am
Place: Online Seminar: Please sign up for our mailing list at www.physicsmeetsml.org for zoom link
Speaker: Jared Kaplan, Johns Hopkins University
Abstract: A variety of recent works suggest that scaling laws are ubiquitous in machine learning. In particular, neural network performance obeys scaling laws with respect to the number of parameters, dataset size, and the training compute budget. I will explain these scaling laws, and argue that they are both precise and highly universal. Then I will explain how this way of thinking about machine learning led to the GPT-3 language model, and what it suggests for the future.
