A Transformer is a type of artificial intelligence model primarily used in the field of Natural Language Processing. Introduced in the paper "Attention is All You Need" by Vaswani et al., it revolutionized the NLP domain by using a mechanism called "attention" to understand the context of words in a sentence. Unlike previous models, Transformers do not process data in sequential order, but rather, they process all data points simultaneously, making them highly efficient for large-scale tasks. Transformers serve as the foundation for many advanced AI models, including ChatGPT, Gemini, Claude, and others.
