Generative AI

About

Generative AI has elevated AI into the mainstream and made it the topic of dinner-table conversations everywhere. Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT enable software to do things that were never before possible, from answering natural-language questions with natural-language responses to generating charts and graphs from verbal descriptions. Image generators such as Stable Diffusion turn text into eye-popping images. Are you curious to know what generative AI is, how it works, and how to use it to infuse AI into your apps and business processes? Bring your laptop and take a deep dive into generative AI in this hands-on masterclass. Learn how to put LLMs over documents and databases, build state-of-the-art virtual assistants, implement zero-shot image classifiers, and more.

Course contents

Computer Vision State-of-the-art image classification is performed with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), which excel at computer-vision tasks such as identifying objects in images. Learn what CNNs are and how they work, and learn how to use transfer learning to build sophisticated CNNs that can be trained on a laptop.
Image Generation Autoencoders, GANs, and diffusion models, oh my! Image generation is the next big thing in AI, and it has grown exponentially in capabilities in just the past 12 months. Learn how deep-learning models generate photorealistic images and how to use state-of-the-art models to implement zero-shot image classification.
Natural Language Processing Deep neural networks have grown in sophistication to the point that they can process text and speech – sometimes more accurately than humans. Learn how to build and train neural networks that classify text, translate text, answer questions, and perform other NLP tasks. Also learn how to leverage pretrained deep-learning models to perform feats of NLP magic and implement semantic search over domain-specific data.
Large Language Models (LLMs) AI entered the mainstream of popular culture with the introduction of ChatGPT in November 2022. ChatGPT is a Large Language Model (LLM) that was instilled with an innate understanding of more than 50 languages and 40 programming languages. Learn what LLMs are, how they work, and how to use them to automate business processes and write software that’s more intelligent than ever before. Also learn how to prevent LLMs from hallucinating in business-critical scenarios, how to put LLMs over documents and databases, how to build virtual assistants using OpenAI’s Assistants API, and more.
