Workshop | Innovate with AI: Build ChatGPT-like Apps
August 31, 2023 | 11:00am – 11:45am

ALL | Room 144-145

Join us for an interactive workshop where businesses, both large and small, can unlock the potential of AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) to create their own ChatGPT-like applications. Discover how to extract proprietary data insights, accelerate data-driven decision-making, boost productivity, and drive innovation across industries.

What do you need to know before building your own app? There’s a lot of code behind the OpenAI chat box. Calvin will review real-world examples and share best practices for how to:

  • Master data gathering and extraction from multiple sources, including the challenging realm of PDFs.
  • Build an AI framework using Django and HTMX, integrating powerful AI models from OpenAI, LangChain, and Llama Index.
  • Test the framework to enhance the accuracy and relevancy of responses.
  • Transform data into a format that AI “bots” can understand and learn from.
  • Deploy the app using Kubernetes, simulating a cloud environment for easy replication on various machines.

As a bonus, all attendees will gain access to a GitHub repository packed with Python code (the ‘lingua franca of AI’) and ChatGPT-like app examples ready to be spun up on-site. Get ready to delve into the world of AI and transform your business like never before!
