    AI Development Lifecycle: Learnings of What Changed with LLMs

    <span class="etn-schedule-location"> <span class="firstfocus">LLMs</span> <span class="secfocus">Intermediate</span> </span>

    When comparing the building of models/pipelines based on LLMs vs more traditional machine/deep learning, two observations are drawn: - Building Proof of Concepts has become incredibly easy - Evaluation is much more challenging As a result, the evaluation step is often neglected leading to pointless iterations and a lack of knowledge on the true performance of the product. This is one of the main obstacle to moving into production, especially in circumstances where we need high accuracy of the results. In this talk, we will explore the lessons learned from building products that are typical use cases of these technologies, such as a financial document analysis automation and a RAG (retrieval augmented generation) tool for a medical company. We will mostly focus on the essential steps of the development workflow which are often overlooked: dataset collection, evaluation and monitoring. New tools for monitoring and doing manual/automatic evaluation (LLM as a judge) have been released to ease the implementation of these best practices in the context of LLMs, and help product experts assist the technical team in building these products.
