Here’s what you’ll find in

Mozilla
ORG

’s AI Guide

To start, we are releasing

three
CARDINAL

sections that go in-depth on the most asked questions about large language models (LLMs). These sections include

AI Basics, Language Models and Choosing ML Models
ORG

. In the Choosing ML Models section, we give developers a place where they can take all their learnings and apply it in an interactive environment using

Google Colab
ORG

, a digital notebook where developers can combine executable code and rich text. While in the

Colab
ORG

, developers can comment and edit together in real-time. More details about the sections listed below:

AI Basics: AI, ML, LLM. What do these concepts mean and how are they related? We delve into developers’ top questions to give readers a shared baseline to these topics.

The Mozilla AI Guide
ORG

breaks it all down with images and looks at the pros and cons of using an

LLM

Developers’ top questions answered


Language Models
WORK_OF_ART

: As we continue to build on that shared knowledge of AI basics, we will take developers to the next level with language models. This is where we answer more questions like, “What does ‘training’ an

ML
ORG

model mean?” or “What is a ‘human in the loop’ approach?” or “What is temperature?”

Top questions about language models

Choosing Machine Learning (ML) models: Now, here comes the fun part, where developers can work with all the information learned thus far. Instead of drowning in jargon and complex terms, we provide interactive tools and exercises to help users see AI in action using our

Colab
ORG

notebooks.

Interactive tools and exercises to run examples

Notable Projects: From front-end solutions to complete

LLM
WORK_OF_ART

solutions, dive into standout initiatives from the

community. These handpicked projects showcase innovation in action, offering both inspiration and insights.

Projects that serve as examples and inspiration

We plan to launch more sections over

the next few months

including

“Data Retrieval

the AI Guide
ORG

will become a collaborative community-driven resource, where developers can come together, ready to pioneer and drive generative
