Tech Talk: Vector database: A technical deep-dive
Speaker: JP Hwang (Weaviate)
Abstract: Vectors are the language of AI. And as generative AI takes over the world, vector databases are exploding in popularity. But why is a whole new product category required for vectors? This talk will answer this by showing you the inner workings of vector databases, and why traditional databases are often not the right solution for AI-native applications.
In this session, we'll discuss how data is stored, retrieved, augmented and isolated for users, and how index types, quantization, multi-tenancy, sharding, and replication affect their behaviour and performance. We will also discuss vector databases' integration with AI models that can generate vectors, or use retrieved data to produce augmented, or transformed outputs.
When you emerge from this deep dive, you will have seen the inner workings of a vector database, and the key aspects that make them different to your grandma's database.

Tech Talk: Unveiling BeFOri: New Benchmarking Framework for LLama
Speaker: Ciera Fowler, Neha Sharma (Ori)
Abstract: In this session, we'll explore how BeFOri enhances performance benchmarks and drives advancements in AI model efficiency. BeFOri, the benchmarking framework is designed to optimize and evaluate LLama2 and LLama3 models on Nvidia V100s and H100 chips.
