Practical tips for building AI applications using LLMs - Best practices and trade-offs

Submitted Jun 17, 2024


At KushoAI, we’ve built an AI agent that can autonomously perform API testing for you. While building this, we came across a lot of problems specific to AI applications built on top of LLMs that you don’t see anywhere else. Since this is a fairly new area of development, we had to spend a lot of time figuring out solutions for them on our own.

The agenda of this talk is to give you an idea of the kind of problems that you’ll face while building AI applications, various tried and tested approaches to solve them and trade-offs that you need to consider while building AI applications.

We hope that attendees will be able to learn from our experience of building AI applications and get started on their own journey.
