Tech Talk 1: Intro to Generative AI and Diffusion
Speaker: Karel Haerens, ML Engineer Manager @ML6
Abstract:In this talk I explain the basic concepts behind diffusion models like stablediffusion, dall-e and midjourney, using cat pictures rather than complex math. I will cover where diffusion models came from, how they work, why they appeared now, and how they give rise to the hottest new skill on linkedin: "prompt engineering". To wrap up attendees can get their hands dirty by creating a collaborative artwork where everyone can submit prompts.
Tech Talk 2: Building LLM Powered NLP Applications with Haystack
Speaker: Tuana Celik, Developer Advocate @Deepset
Abstract: In this talk we will take a look at Haystack, an open source NLP framework by deepset, and the current state of building NLP applications. We will look at challenges we frequently face using LLMs (such as hallucinations), and what we can do to mitigate them. We will also look at different applications of language models with various prompting implementations such as Agents, chat applications and more.
Tech Talk 3: Automating Customer Support with LLMs
Speaker: Elina Oikonomou, Product Owner @Creative Fabrica
Abstract: In this talk we discuss how to build an intelligent customer support chatbot using LLMs and an internal Knowledge base. We will examine the system architecture, the conversation flow and how to build an end-to-end solution. We will finally look at the post-launch impact on user experience and the business, the performance and how to improve over time.
