Tech Talk: Searching and Reasoning Over Multimedia Data with Vector Databases and LMMs
Speaker: Zain Hasan (Weaviate LinkedIn)
Abstract: In this talk, Zain Hasan will discuss how we can use open-source multimodal embedding models in conjunction with large generative multimodal models that can that can see, hear, read, and feel data(!), to perform cross-modal search(searching audio with images, videos with text etc.) and multimodal retrieval augmented generation (MM-RAG) at the billion-object scale with the help of open source vector databases. I will also demonstrate, with live code demos, how being able to perform this cross-modal retrieval in real-time can enables users to use LLMs that can reason over their enterprise multimodal data. This talk will revolve around how we can scale the usage of multimodal embedding and generative models in production.
Tech Talk: Codeless Generative AI Pipelines
Speaker: Timothy Spann (Cloudera LinkedIn)
Abstract: Join us for an insightful talk on leveraging the power of real-time streaming tools, specifically Apache NiFi, to revolutionize GenAI data engineering. In this session, we’ll explore how the integration of Apache NiFi can automate the entire process of prompt building, making it a seamless and efficient task.
