Improving the LLM experience with sensor provided context

Large Language Models (LLM’s) are a truly transformative technology that will alter many aspects of our lives. It has quickly become apparent that the usefulness of these LLMs is multiplied by the exactness of the prompt, leading to a rise in prompt engineering. In this presentation we will discuss how sensors on devices will play a significant role in helping generate more useful and contextual prompts and how audio and voice might play a role in the future of this technology.
