Large language models (LLMs) are an artificial intelligence approach that have recently been shown to have extremely promising ability, for example, for conversing with humans or performing tasks such as summarising or extracting information from text. This project will investigate the potential opportunities and challenges of using LLMs in epidemiological research and explore the use of these models for deriving health traits from Twitter data as an example.
