Tech Talk 1: Developing a Large-scale Creative Commons Dataset for Image Generation
Speaker: Sharon Grundmann, ML Engineer Manager @ML6
Abstract:In January 2023, Getty Images sued Stability AI for training Stable Diffusion on over 12 million of their copyrighted images. This is a recurrent problem with foundation models which are trained on vast image datasets from the Internet, which often include copyrighted content.
In this talk, we will present our solution to this problem – building a large-scale dataset of Creative Commons licensed images. We will dive into the challenges and how we leverage Fondant, an open-source framework that democratises data preparation for foundation models, to realise this.

Tech Talk 2: Enter the Brave New World of GenAI with Vector Search
Speaker: Mary Grygleski @DataStax
Abstract: We will go over the history and evolution of AI and ML, then look at how it has evolved to where it is today. We will touch upon as many new concepts that have popped up in the last 6-9 months, which include: Generative AI (GenAI), ChatGPT, Large Language Models (LLMs), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Vector DB, and the growing importance of Vector Search. We will also point out the new operational concerns when it comes to managing the life-cycle of a machine learning environment. We will then look at a demo on how Vector Search is being done behind the scenes. We will discuss the benefits of this new wave of technology as well as the challenges that it brings to the industry and the marketplace.
