Tech Talk 1: LLMs in Production
Speaker: Chenggang Wu, Co-founder and CTO @Aqueduct
Abstract: Large language models (LLMs) and other foundation models have made an unprecedented step forward in AI. Unfortunately, the infrastructure required to run these models is so overwhelmingly complex that only a few select companies have the requisite capabilities. Infrastructure challenges range from managing large amount of data, deploying complex pipelines, and managing compute services. In this talk, we will discuss:
- An overview of the infrastructure challenges of running LLMs in the cloud
- A demo/walkthrough of deploying an LLM on existing cloud infrastructure
- How Aqueduct seamlessly takes a LLM-powered workflow from prototype to production.

Tech Talk 2: Open Source Semantic Search Engine
Speaker: Ken MacInnis @Weaviate
Abstract: Weaviate is an open source semantic search engine that stores both objects and vectors, allowing for combining vector search with structured filtering. In other words - Google for your own data: question answering, text/image/audio or vector search. In addition to being open source, Weaviate is also available as a hosted solution. All instances are accessible through GraphQL, REST, and clients for Python, JavaScript, Go and Java. Weaviate lets you bring your own vectors, or you can easily configure it to use OpenAI, Cohere, or any Hugging Face transformer to vectorize your data.
