Tech Talk: Serving LLM using HuggingFace
Speaker: Joanne Lei (Oracle)
Abstract: LLMs have made significant strides in text generation, problem-solving, and following instructions. As businesses integrate LLMs to develop cutting-edge solutions, the need for scalable, secure, and efficient deployment platforms becomes increasingly imperative. Kubernetes has risen as the preferred option due to its scalability, flexibility, portability, and resilience.
In this talk, Joanne will demonstrate how to deploy fine-tuned LLM inference containers on OKE, an OCI managed Kubernetes service that simplifies deployments and operations at scale for enterprises.

Tech Talk: Building AI: The AI Ecosystem, AI UX, and the AI Engineer
Speaker: Patrick McGuinness (Freestar AI)
Abstract: With LLMs as copilots, chatbots and infused as gen AI features in apps, the era of AI-centric software is here. We present an overview of the who, what and how of building AI applications. We describe types of AI applications, the AI tool stack and ecosystem to support AI applications and AI agent development, and the interfaces and AI user experience (AI UX) modes in AI applications. We also discuss the role of the AI application developer, aka the AI Engineer in building AI..
