Large Language Model (LLM)
A large language model (LLM) is a type of language model notable for its ability to achieve general-purpose language understanding and generation. LLMs acquire these abilities by using massive amounts of data to learn billions of parameters during training and consuming large computational resources during their training and operation.

loose coupling
In computing and systems design, a loosely-coupled system is one
  1. in which components are weakly associated (have breakable relationships) with each other, and thus changes in one component least affect existence or performance of another component.
  2. in which each of its components has, or makes use of, little or no knowledge of the definitions of other separate components … Loose coupling is the opposite of tight coupling.

Low Code Development Platform (LCDP)

See also no-code development platform.
