BCS SPA specialist group in association with BCS London Central, North and South branches.

The next iteration of GPT will be the ability to use it against data that is not publicly available (internal documents, wikis, code, meeting notes, etc).

A database system is ideal for storing this, given its abilities to manage vector data, perform semantic searches and pull data from various sources without extensive Extract, Transform and Load (ETL). In this presentation, attendees will learn how to build a GPT AI application on their own data.

This event is perfect for developers, data engineers, and anyone interested in building intelligent chatbot applications.

This presentation will include a hands-on lab, for which we'll divide the participants into pairs (physically within the meeting room and using breakout rooms online). Bring your own laptop.

Everything will be browser-based. Beforehand, please create a free SingleStoreDB account and a free OpenAI account.

No credit card is required for either.

Please keep your free SingleStoreDB and OpenAI website credits for the hands-on lab. iPython notebooks will be shared shortly before the event.
