The Fifth Elephant 2023 Winter edition will cover topics on the research, engineering, and business aspects of AI, exploring the practical implementation and economic implications of these systems.

Why Large Language Models are important in AI

In 2020, OpenAI released a Large Language Model (LLM) called GPT3 which has a billion parameters. With a minimal and intuitive user interface which was released to go with GPT3, it caught the imagination and attention of AI communities and researchers all over the world.
One by one, the domain use cases such as co-pilots for coding, creative AI, and other downstream tasks were shown to be fast-tracked by GenerativeAI models and LLMs. As such, there is a wide-ranging interest in large language models and applications around them for various domains and use cases in the AI space. Experiments which aim to find optimal hyperparameters, and those dealing with underfitting and overfitting models are being carried out regularly; more and more barriers are being broken down every day.

Themes

The winter edition of The Fifth Elephant will showcase talks, discussions and demos across generative and multimodal AI, and other classic AI/ML/DL applications on the below themes.

AI engineering Track

Share approaches and case studies covering the following use cases:

  • Products and platforms using LLMs, GenerativeAI, ML, and Deep Learning techniques, and business formulation around AI engineering.
  • Conversational AI and search, automatic speech recognition, healthcare, e-commerce, fintech, media and OTT, and other verticals.
  • Multilingual needs in India in digital products/platforms - features discussions, models training, finetuning, RLHF, RAGs, quantization techniques, dataset curation and augmentations, challenges faced in pipelines, evaluation metrics, future roadmaps, applications such as multilingual voice bots using ASR/STT, text to speech for accessibility.

Data Science operations track

Share case studies and experiential talks on handling the operations for data science such as scaling challenges and fine-tuning challenges, and lessons learned, and best practices for incorporating ethics, safety, and bias.

Demo track

Show demos on features/products which leverage AI and LLM-based APIs and models. It can be from creative AI, generative AI space, and various verticals with relevant use cases.

The Fifth Elephant membership

The December edition will be held in-person. Attendance is open to The Fifth Elephant members only. Pick a membership to attend the in-person conference, and to support The Fifth Elephant’s community activities.

Who will benefit from participating in The Fifth Elephant community:

  2. Data scientists who want a deeper understanding of model deployment/governance.
  3. Architects who are building ML workflows that scale.
  4. Tech founders and CTOs who are building products and platforms that leverage AI, ML and LLMs
  5. Product managers, who want to learn about the process of building AI/ML products.
  6. Directors, VPs and senior tech leadership who are building AI/ML teams.

Sponsorship

Sponsorship slots are open for:

  1. Infrastructure (GPU, CPU and cloud providers) and developer productivity tool makers who want to evangelise their offering to developers and decision-makers.
  2. Companies who want to do tech branding among AI and ML developers.
  3. Venture Capital (VC) firms and investors who want to scan the landscape of innovations and innovators in AI and who want to source leads for investment in the AI and ML space.

Using LLMs to build your own Copilots

Submitted Nov 14, 2023

I plan to cover the following topics.
. How LLMs work (short intro)
. The challenges of working with LLMs (Hallucinations)
. How to reduce Hallucination using Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG)
. How can you can finetune LLMs to give give more coherent answers
. What is the Copilot pattern for building creative/enterprise apps?
. How does the Copilot pattern work from a UX point of view to augment human in the loop.
. What are the different elements of the Copilot stack and how do they interplay with each other?
. Some learnings from building copilots so far? (eg related to Responsible AI)

The talk will cover OpenAI LLMs mostly but the learnings and the LLM stack can be substituted with huggingface hosted model or even finetuned Llama models.
