Traditional metrics, like accuracy and F1 score, fall short of capturing the complexities of evaluating Large Language Models (LLMs). LLMs deal with intricate language tasks that are generative and random at their core. Success depends on a nuanced understanding of context, semantics, and pragmatics.

How do we measure an LLM’s model performance? To measure and compare LLM holistically, you can make use of benchmarks that have been established to test models’ performances across multiple specific reasoning tasks.

Benchmarks provide a standardized way to evaluate and improve LLMs, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses in different language tasks.

Benchmarks, such as GLUE,… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
