    Title: Emphasizing the Importance of Data and Evaluation in the Era of Large language Models  
    Abstract: Large-scale models have marked the beginning of a new era, significantly transforming language understanding, text and image generation, and complex decision-making tasks. For example, they may perpetuate stereotypes or produce misleading information. Nevertheless, due to the limitations of existing evaluation methods, these problems are often overlooked. My research highlights the imperative need for more careful and nuanced model evaluation and assessment. Upon investigation, large models may have generated biased or inappropriate content due to inadequacies in their training data. Identified through trustworthy evaluation methods, I address these challenges with a focus on aligning large models with human intentions from a data-centric perspective.
