- 19:00-19:15 Networking over drinks

- 19:15-19:45 Everything you need to know about Google's new Generative AI platform / Gerard Sans

Generative AI has come a long way in the past few months. We all have seen chatbots doing things we couldn't have dreamt of a few years back. Generative AI is today able to process text, images, code and even speech in ways that can help users be more efficient and creative.

For Users, it can access a vast source of information to guide them at work and get more done faster. For Developers, it can explain code snippets, fix your code, help you navigate a new code base or even write tests! The possibilities are endless.

In this talk, you are going to learn about Google's new Generative AI platform Vertex AI, the latest tools (Generative AI Studio) and APIs to foundational models (PaLM2, Imagen, Codey and Chirp), just so you can start building AI-enabled Applications and powerful chatbots. AI's current progress and future is truly exciting!

- 19:45-20:00 Open Mic for hiring, cofounder searching, etc.

- 20:00-20:15 Break

- 20:15-20:45 Large Language Models: A New Era of Augmented Analytics / Paul Egorov

Have you ever seen futuristic films or TV series where humans speak or interact with business intelligence systems using natural language input or even hand gestures? It may have sounded like a dream until 2017 when Google released Cloud Speech-to-Text v1. This opened up a lot of possibilities for building augmented analytics in production. When I worked in consultancy, I built several commercial projects related to this. However, these systems were, to a large extent, rule-based.

Recent advances in Large Language Models (LLMs) have opened up a new era of augmented analytics. We not only know how to convert speech to text, but we can now convert text to code on a contextual level, and it actually works!

In this talk, I would like to elaborate more on the topic of augmented analytics, present a brief history of developments in this field's technical capabilities, share several projects I implemented in this area, and discuss how LLMs revolutionised this field

- 20:45-21:30 Networking
