Talk: Enter the Brave New World of GenAI with Vector Search

With ChatGPT taking center stage since the beginning of 2023, developers who have not had a chance to work with any forms of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning systems may find themselves either intrigued by the “maze” of new terminologies, or some may be eager to learn more, while perhaps a smaller group may not actually want to get themselves into a territory that’s unknown to them.

The truth is that, whether we like it or not, we have all been “thrust” into this new era of computing. Instead of procrastinating, let’s start by learning about Generative AI specifically with this presentation. We will go over the history and evolution of AI and ML, then look at how it has evolved to where it is today. We will touch upon as many new concepts that have popped up in the last 6-9 months, which include: Generative AI (GenAI), ChatGPT, Large Language Models (LLMs), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Vector DB, and the growing importance of Vector Search. We will then look at a demo on how Vector Search is being done behind the scenes. We will discuss the benefits of this new wave of technology as well as the challenges that it brings to the industry and the marketplace.
