A free, self-paced online course about Generative AI is on offer from Microsoft's Azure Cloud Advocates. It's a 12-lesson curriculum targeted at complete novices to LLMs.

We recently looked into some other e-learning offerings such as "The LangChain And Vector Databases in Production" or "LangChain: Chat with Your Data", but these were more advanced courses.

This one tackles the concepts from scratch, which you'll explore by building your own Generative AI Startup based on Azure's OpenAI Services. Through it you will get an understanding of what it takes to launch your ideas to the public and profit. As such each lesson covers a key aspect of Generative AI principles and application development.

Machine Learning - able to learn patterns from data, without being explicitly programmed. This approach allows a machine to simulate human language understanding: a statistical model is trained on text-label pairings, enabling the model to classify unknown input text with a pre-defined label representing the intention of the message.

As a subset of Deep Learning, with GenAI you create new written, visual and audio content given prompts or existing data. Large Language Models (LLMs), since they work with textual inputs and outputs – are indeed based on this architecture. The main capability of a Large Language Model is generating a text from scratch, starting from a textual input, written in natural language.
