**31.07.2024**Method prevents an AI model from being overconfident about wrong answers

More efficient than other approaches, the "Thermometer" technique could help someone know when they should trust a large language model. People use large language models for a huge array of tasks, from translating an article to identifying financial fraud. However, despite the incredible capabilities and versatility of these models, they sometimes generate inaccurate responses.
