During this research talk, you’ll see how researchers are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with weak supervision.

PhD Candidate Peilin Yu from Brown University will discuss how Alfred enables users to encode their subject matter expertise via natural language prompts for language and vision-language models.

The talk will address:

  • How weak supervision scales labeling efforts.
  • How foundation models enable more user-friendly labeling.
  • How Alfred supercharges the foundation model/labeling function interface.
