- 5:30pm~6:00pm: Checkin, food and networking
- 6:00pm~6:10pm: Welcome, Community update
- 6:10pm~8:00pm: Tech talks and Q&A
- 8:00pm~8:30pm: Open discussion, Mixer and Closing.

Tech Talk: Instant and private workflow automation
Speaker: Mark Heynen (Knap)
Abstract: While AI has vast potential at work, we have yet to see an enterprise solution that is self-serve, private, personalized, and cost-effective. As a result, AI is underutilized at work, and mostly smuggled in. Mark will talk through Knapsack's instant automations, including compliant approaches to using enterprise data with LLMs using private RAG pipelines on the edge, and creating no code workflow automations that could save the average knowledge worker one day per week at scale.

Tech Talk: Multimodal RAG with Milvus, UForm tiny encoders, and GPT-4o
Speaker: Christy Bergman (Zilliz)
Abstract: Recent advances in LLM embedding models have led to impressive gains in multimodal capabilities. In this talk, we'll explore how to: 1) Combine Text and Images: We'll learn how to create a unified representation (embeddings) for both images and text data. I'll download model weights and run the inference locally on my laptop. 2) Search for Connections: We'll store the embeddings in Milvus and/or Zilliz Cloud and retrieve relevant information using multilingual text queries and/or images using hybrid vector search; 3) Enrich GPT-4o: We'll incorporate this multimodal data as context into GPT-4o.

Tech Talk: Genkit: a developer-first approach for developing AI features
Speaker: Iman Rahmati (Google)
Abstract: Why would Firebase decide to build an open source framework for developing generative AI features? I go through the history and what was lacking when developing generative ai features, what we thought could help developers and how we approached ai development differently. I'll also go through the foundational principles of Genkit and the features it provides and work through code examples and the tooling.
