The ABCs of AI Transformers, Tokens, and Embeddings: A LEGO Story

Introduction AI transformers have rapidly become one of the most popular and effective architectures in natural language processing and artificial intelligence. But what exactly are transformers, and how do they leverage embeddings to achieve state-of-the-art results on tasks like translation and text generation? In this post, I’ll attempt to demystify tokens, embedding, and transformers by unveiling the magic behind their near-human linguistic abilities using a simple analogy – language is like LEGOs! While the overall goal is to introduce you to the key concepts, you’ll find additional links at the bottom of the post that will allow you to dive […]
