Building Instructable Agents: Insights from Aidan Gomez, Founder and CEO of Cohere

## Title: Building Instructable Agents for AI: Interview with Aidan Gomez, Founder and CEO of Cohere


In this episode of the Robot Brains Podcast, host Pieter Abbeel interviews Aidan Gomez, Founder and CEO of Cohere. Aidan is a renowned AI researcher and entrepreneur, known for his contribution to the original Transformer neural network paper, which has had a significant impact on the field of AI over the past decade.

The conversation covers various topics related to building instructable agents and large language models (LLMs). They delve into the capabilities of LLMs, their applications in natural language processing, and their potential for revolutionizing industries such as computer vision, speech recognition, and more.

Aidan shares insights on prompt engineering, the compute and data requirements for LLMs, adoption and use cases, and taking action beyond responding with text. He also explores the competitive landscape and opportunities for LLMs, including the development of multi-lingual LLMs.

Additionally, Aidan provides an overview of Cohere, a non-profit organization funded by Cohere, and its mission to make natural language processing accessible to developers through its tools and APIs.

The interview highlights the significance of the original Transformer paper, titled “Attention is all you need,” discusses the potential for new neural network architectures, and even delves into Aidan’s personal journey as an AI pioneer, from growing up on a maple farm to his groundbreaking research.
