Tech Talk: Deploy self-hosted open-source AI solutions
Speaker: Dmitri Evseev (Arbitration City)
Abstract: I will share practical insights from my journey from law firm partner to AI startup founder, focusing on deploying self-hosted, open-source AI solutions in the legal sector and beyond. I will discuss the benefits of self-hosting over third-party APIs, the challenges of implementing these systems for production use, and methods to optimise GPU usage with open-source tools. The talk will also cover approaches to integrate containerised architectures and encryption for secure, scalable AI deployment, aiming to assist the LLMOps community and others exploring self-hosted AI and retrieval-augmented generation (RAG).

Tech Talk: Falcon OS - An open source LLM Operating System
Speaker: Heiko Hotz (Google)
Abstract: In this talk I will introduce the Falcon OS project, a collaboration with the Technology Innovation Institute and Weights & Biases. Falcon OS is a new operating system project centered around the open-source Falcon 40B LLM. It aims to simplify complex tasks through natural language, bridging the gap between users and computers. This talk will explore its potential to transform AI applications and what it takes for an LLM to be able to reason and act, a key capability for such a system.

Tech Talk: Navigating LLM Deployment: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques
Speaker: Meryem Arik (TitanML)
Abstract: Self-hosted Language Models are going to power the next generation of applications in critical industries like financial services, healthcare, and defence. Self-hosting LLMs, as opposed to using API-based models, comes with its own host of challenges - as well as needing to solve business problems, engineers need to wrestle with the intricacies of model inference, deployment and infrastructure. In this talk we are going to discuss the best practices in model optimisation, serving and monitoring - with practical tips and real case-studies.
