    Introduction In the ever-expanding universe of Large Language Models (LLMs), one might be forgiven for feeling a bit like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole. With each passing day, a new model emerges, boasting capabilities that would make Turing himself raise an eyebrow. But as we navigate this wonderland of artificial intelligence, we find ourselves…

    Benchmarking Methods: What’s Being Measured? Ah, benchmarks. The bread and butter of the LLM comparison world. These are the yardsticks by which we measure our artificial wordsmiths, the gauntlets through which they must pass to prove their mettle. But what exactly are these tests measuring? Let’s dive in and see if we can make sense…
