CTO Craft Bytes: Beyond just an OpenAI wrapper

Business & Professional

At this in-person event, we'll be exploring what we need to learn to effectively unlock the potential of the GenAI revolution.

Nowadays, some products and features are indeed “just OpenAI wrappers”. But, to build compelling products that take advantage of GenAi models, there is still a lot of work, thought, and deliberation needed. What techniques and patterns do we need to learn to effectively unlock the potential of this revolution?

We will go over patterns and techniques for building LLM-enabled applications and tools. We’ll explore the current ecosystem and what fits where, as well as how we can take advantage of open-source libraries and models.

We encounter “OpenAI wrappers” within various products and features, but building compelling products that harness GenAi models demands substantial effort. We must be intentional about employing techniques and patterns to optimise the potential of the AI-Native revolution.

This session aims to provide valuable insights and practical advice for leaders and managers seeking to navigate the evolving landscape of cloud technologies and AI integration.

Key discussion points include:

  • Evolution of Perception
  • Ecosystem
  • RAG, Fine-Tuning, Function calling, and Validation
  • Self-hosting
  • Dev Tools

By the end of this session, participants will be equipped with a nuanced understanding of the historical context, current challenges, and strategic considerations surrounding cloud technologies and AI. The goal is to empower leaders to navigate this rapidly evolving landscape, unlocking the full potential of AI-Native solutions for their organizations.
