Abstract: "This talk explores a framework for how data scientists can deliver value with Generative AI: How can you embed LLMs and foundation models into your pre-existing software stack? How can you do so using Open Source Python? What changes about the production machine learning stack and what remains the same?
We motivate the concepts through generative AI examples in domains such as text-to-image (Stable Diffusion) and text-to-speech (Whisper) applications. Moreover, we’ll demonstrate how workflow orchestration provides a common scaffolding to ensure that your Generative AI and classical Machine Learning workflows alike are robust and ready to move safely into production systems.
This talk is aimed squarely at (data) scientists and ML engineers who want to focus on the science, data, and modeling, but want to be able to access all their infrastructural, platform, and software needs with ease!
Attendees will learn how to embed generative AI tools into pre-existing ML and data science stacks with Python code!
Python, Metaflow, Stable Diffusion, Whisper, PyTorch, LLama2, GPT-X
A knowledge of Python would help but isn't necessary.
Bio: Hugo Bowne-Anderson is a data scientist, writer, educator & podcaster. His interests include promoting data & AI literacy/fluency, helping to spread data skills through organizations and society and doing amateur stand up comedy in NYC. He does many of these at DataCamp, a data science training company educating over 3 million learners worldwide through interactive courses on the use of Python, R, SQL, Git, Bash and Spreadsheets in a data science context. He has spearheaded the development of over 25 courses in DataCamp’s Python curriculum, impacting over 170,000 learners worldwide through my own courses. He hosts and produce the data science podcast DataFramed, in which he uses long-format interviews with working data scientists to delve into what actually happens in the space and what impact it can and does have. He earned PhD in Mathematics from the University of New South Wales, Australia and has conducted biomedical research at the Max Planck Institute in Germany and Yale University, New Haven.
