Tech Talk: Deploying fine-tuned language models: From start to finish, in nothing but Python
Speaker: Ara Ghukasyan (Agnostiq)
Abstract:What does it take to fine-tune and deploy a customized LLM on state-of-the-art cloud hardware? In this talk, we explore a fully Pythonic solution to this problem, using just a few extra lines on top of ordinary code. No cloud expertise is required to follow along. We’ll start with a simple example and scale things gradually to arrive at a powerful, high-compute workflow that creates a “model inference” service with a custom API—all within the confines of a Jupyter Notebook!

Tech Talk: The role of knowledge graphs in RAG
Speaker: Prashanth Rao (Kùzu)
Abstract: In this talk, we will explore some of the ways in which knowledge graphs are used in conjunctions with LLMs and graph databases to power RAG systems that provide insights from structured or unstructured data. We will also highlight some practical methods on how to build RAG systems that utilize the power of graphs.

Tech Talk: Secure and enhance your Azure OpenAI
Speaker: Ehsan Eskandari (Microsoft MVP)
Abstract: In this session we look into how integrating Azure API Management with Azure OpenAI can help enhancing loggings and security of your deployment.
