Summary:You are a data scientist, software developer, ML engineer or other technical professional who would like to be able incorporate profitable state-of-the-art LLMs into real-world applications. You're an entrepreneur, intrapreneur or other professional who's keen to accelerate commercial innovation and profitability at your firm. Prerequisites All you need is an interest in how AI can impact you and your organization. Feel free to bring questions for the experts.
In this talk, Vin will explain the roadmap for cost savings and revenue growth for the rest of us. Specifically, Vin will detail his four keys to how Generative AI will deliver for businesses: Generative AI monetization strategy; opportunity discovery and use case selection; Generative AI product design; and enterprise data management practices that curate high-value data sets. Vin Vashishta is the author of "From Data To Profit" (Wiley, 2023), the playbook for monetizing data and AI. He's also the Founder of V-Squared, one of the world's oldest data and AI consulting firms. His background combines over 25 years in strategy, leadership, software engineering and applied machine learning. Over 200,000 people follow Vin on social media for his valuable daily insights.
3 hours of video What you'll learn: Unlock profits and monetize generative AI with insights from industry leaders. Master the details of LLM selection, benchmarking, and the powerful Langchain library. Explore ethical AI and real-world solutions to address ethical concerns in generative AI. In an era in which artificial intelligence is revolutionizing industries, this event is a pivotal opportunity for professionals to stay ahead of the curve. The half-day conference cuts through the noise, delivering critical know-how on optimizing profits, technical implementation, and ethical considerations in the rapidly evolving landscape of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative AI. Whether you're a developer, data scientist or entrepreneur, this event offers an invaluable blend of expertise and actionable strategies to help you navigate the complexities and opportunities in commercial AI applications.
Jon and Vin Discussion + Q&A (15 min) Caterina Constantinescu: LLM Selection and Implementation (30 minutes) Dive deep into the critical steps of developing a commercially viable Large Language Model (LLM) application. We will cover approaches for selecting the most appropriate LLM (be it open-source or proprietary) and then progress to a hands-on demonstration of how to fine-tune an LLM and thus ensure optimal user experience. We also introduce Langchain, a flexible and extensive Python library for LLM orchestration and integration within complex applications. By the end of this talk, you'll be well-positioned to transform foundational knowledge into actionable strategies for the next wave of NLP applications. Caterina Constantinescu is a Principal Data Consultant at GlobalLogic (part of the Hitachi Group) where she advises on data design and observability, as well as the tailored applicability of data science models to business use cases.
You'll come away empowered to accelerate the deployment of profitable Generative AI models. AI Catalyst Conference The AI Catalyst Conference from Pearson brings together fresh voices in AI to make complex topics understandable and actionable. Host Jon Krohn guides the conversation and explains how to bring state-of-the-art methods into practice. Gain new information or a different perspective to make an impact in your job and in the world. What you'll learn and how you can apply it Monetization: Grasp the strategies to make AI and LLMs profitable. Technical Criteria: Know how to evaluate LLMs for your specific needs. Ethical Concerns: Understand the social impact of AI deployments. And you'll be able to: Implement Langchain: Utilize the new Python library for seamless LLM integration. Benchmark Models: Conduct performance tests to ensure optimal LLM functionality. Build Trust: Apply open-source tools to manage ethical concerns in AI. This course is for you because...
