Multi-Agent Simulator for Carbon Neutrality: The Technology the World Has Been Waiting For

Today, each country, government, and enterprise are urged to take effective action to fight against climate change; however, an efficient method has not been found. Even a way to accurately calculate Scope 3 carbon emissions has yet to be developed. The technology of a multi-agent simulator could be an essential step in solving worldwide challenges. We interviewed the researchers about the details of this technology.

Chris White Interviewed By Mike Vizard on Techstrong.AI

In this excellent Techstrong.ai videocast, Michael Vizard interviews our Christopher White, President of NEC Labs America, about #AI and its future. They discuss generative AI, its current hype, its potential impact on content creation and the augmentation of human abilities. Chris emphasizes that generative AI systems are not “thinking machines” but tools to enhance human capabilities.

Industrial Labs to Drive Disruptive Innovation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

While the previous generation of industrial progress brought us new capabilities, efficiencies, and even delight through digital transformation, we’re entering a new era of innovation, opportunity, and disruption: the Fourth Industrial Revolution. What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Meet The Disruptors: NEC’s Chris White On The Five Things You Need To Shake Up Your Industry | Authority Magazine

Chris leads our team to conduct disruptive research rather than just incremental research.

Beyond One Model Fits All: A Survey of Domain Specialization for Large Language Models

Large language models (LLMs) have significantly advanced the field of natural language processing (NLP), providing a highly useful, task agnostic foundation for a wide range of applications. The great promise of LLMs as general task solvers motivated people to extend their functionality largely beyond just a “chatbot”, and use it as an assistant or even replacement for domain experts and tools in specific domains such as healthcare, finance, and education. However, directly applying LLMs to solve sophisticated problems in specific domains meets many hurdles, caused by the heterogeneity of domain data, the sophistication of domain knowledge, the uniqueness of domain objectives, and the diversity of the constraints (e.g., various social norms, cultural conformity, religious beliefs, and ethical standards in the domain applications). To fill such a gap, explosively increase research, and practices have been conducted in very recent years on the domain specialization of LLMs, which, however, calls for a comprehensive and systematic review to better summarizes and guide this promising domain. In this survey paper, first, we propose a systematic taxonomy that categorizes the LLM domain specialization techniques based on the accessibility to LLMs and summarizes the framework for all the subcategories as well as their relations and differences to each other. We also present a comprehensive taxonomy of critical application domains that can benefit from specialized LLMs, discussing their practical significance and open challenges. Furthermore, we offer insights into the current research status and future trends in this area.

NEC Labs America Heads to Stanford University’s SystemX Alliance Annual Fall Conference

NEC Labs America’s (NECLA) President Christopher White is attending Stanford University’s SystemX Alliance 2022 Fall Conference this week, where he is meeting with Ph.D. students, industry-leading researchers and business leaders presenting on a wide range of research topics. The annual conference will highlight exciting research in the areas of advanced materials, data analytics, energy and power management, 3D nanoprinting, and photonic and quantum computing, to name but a few!
