Are you ready to start building applications with large language models (LLMs), but not sure where to begin? This course, which is designed uniquely for beginners with no experience in the LLM space, offers an overview of the fundamentals of LLMs with hands-on challenges to boost your skills along the way.

Explore the essentials of retrieval-augmented generation including search engine basics, embedding model limitations, and how to build a chat-with-PDF application. Along the way, instructor Han Lee shows you how to get up and running with prompt engineering, using the prompt playground for LLM apps.
