Tech Talk: Unleashing Data Magic: Vector Databases and RAG Demystified
Speaker: Art Anderson (Aerospike)
Abstract: Dive into the world of vector databases and Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) as we explore how we built a practical application and the challenges we faced. Discover how semantic search can enrich data, enabling recommendation engines, fraud detection, and more. Learn how these technologies can fit into your current applications and data, sparking new ideas for innovation.

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: GenAI Pull Request Reviews for GitHub in a Copilot World
Speaker: Brian Kelly (
Abstract: This talk will be about the future of coding alongside AI. As AI begins to write more of our code, the role of pull requests (PRs) becomes increasingly vital for maintaining top-notch code quality. However, today's code review practices come with their own set of challenges—they take up a lot of time, their effectiveness can vary widely, and they often slow down the development process. This talk focuses on how automating PRs with GenAI can transform these reviews, making them quicker, more reliable, and less of a drag. We'll also highlight the importance of seamless integration with GitHub, ensuring our workflows stay smooth in an era where AI is not just a helper but a core part of our coding team.
