The origins and evolution of Generative AI

April 21, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

The past few months have seen a lot of excitement with the progress made in generative AI. Some call it hype and some call it the ‘AI revolution’. We have been flooded with information for moratoriums or advancements from the founders of deep learning, while companies are moving at hyper speed to start thinking about what innovation solutions this technology can lead to. This talk is aimed more from the view to arm you with information, background and a solid understanding of what generative AI is. It briefly dives into the timeline of NLP and its transition towards generative AI. It will also touch upon the different solutions available along with some cost estimates for using the model itself, fine-tuning it vs training it. We will go over the ethics side of this as it is necessary and responsible to understand as well as look at a framework that will help you implement or research this within your organisational context in a more responsible setting.

Key focus areas :

  • Origins & evolution of generative AI
  • genAI Landscape
  • Costs and types of training
  • Responsible AI
  • genAI in production with human-in-the-loop-evaluation
  • Example use
