Building Generative AI


Do you wonder how you can bring the magic of ChatGPT into your own products? Have concepts like memory, embeddings, prompt chaining, and agents left you confused?

Meet the Semantic Kernel (SK), Microsoft's open-source orchestrator for AI and large language models that is at the heart of Microsoft's recently announced Copilot Stack. SK powers many of Microsoft's own products and gives developers an easy-to-use framework for incorporating models like ChatGPT and GPT4 into their applications. In this session, we'll do a deeper dive into the Semantic Kernel and understand where it fits among the emerging AI infrastructure landscape. You'll want to tune in to make sure you're equipped to handle the coming new wave of AI!

You will learn:

  • What is the Semantic Kernel?
  • How can you use it to add AI into your own applications?
  • What are concepts like skills, plugins, memory, embeddings, and planning?
