The seventeenth episode of the podcast you know and love as "We Love Ugly Data!" is out; Matt and Dan this time discussing, How to Train your LLM, The Usual Suspects (chosen by the usual analyst firms) and Analyst Briefings; Do's and Don't.

The seventeenth episode of the podcast that you know and love as “We Love Ugly Data!” is out; available everywhere you get your podcasts from and, of course, in video form via YouTube (which we’ve embedded below). As always, it’s three topics in (just a touch over) 30 minutes, and the show notes are, as usual, included in the embedded video below. This time around, Matt and Dan are in the chairs, discussing How to train your LLM, The Usual Suspects (chosen by the usual analyst firms), and Analyst Briefings: Do’s and Don’t.

In this month’s episode:

Topic 1: How to train your LLM

Inspired by his blog post from last year, Dan discusses the finer points of how LLMs can be trained to ensure that your IDP processes work better. He also confirms his membership in the court of King Charles, which, to be honest, wasn’t necessary.

Topic 2: The Usual Suspects

Again, inspired by another blog post – this time a bit more recent – Dan wants us to remember to look beyond those in the top right-hand corner of the 2×2 diagram when selecting software. It’s naturally focusing on IDP again, but the lesson can easily be applied across the board. Matt also suggests that we may not have paid for the associated image, but he turns out to be entirely wrong (so call off the lawyers).

Topic 3: Conference programs; what works and what doesn’t?

As analysts, we spend much of our time briefed by software vendors. Here, Dan and Matt discuss their definite dos and don’ts of presenting your company and products to analysts (hint, hint: go to town on talking about case studies and the real details of projects you’ve done).

Show notes for Series 3, Episode 7.
