Tech Talk: Build Lightweight LLMs Applications with Open Source Tools
Speaker: Amogh Kokari (Con Edison)
Abstract: ChatGPT is awesome, but developing with its API comes at a cost. Fortunately, there are open-source alternatives like Google Gemini, Streamlit, and Python APIs that can fetch prompt results using an API key. In this presentation, I'll explore how to create a lightweight, self-service end-to-end LLMs application using prompt engineering and fine-tuning based on user requests. Additionally, I'll demonstrate how to build a food suggestion application based on ingredients or food names.

Tech Talk: MultiModal Learning and Synthetic AI
Speaker: Shafik Quoraishee (The New York Times)
Abstract: This talk will take a dive into the core theories and mechanisms behind multi-modal AI models, the powerful AI systems that integrate intelligence from diverse data sources such as text, AI, and vision. While we will reference popular applications like GPT Vision, Gemini, and Sora as illustrative examples, our focus will primarily be on understanding the foundational principles that enable capabilities such as real-time image/video analysis, hyper-segmentation of images, and image-to-text extraction among others.
