Brought to you by CODE Consulting and CODE Magazine, these free events are designed for developers and IT decision makers. Join us online or in-person at one of these free events for a presentation loaded with content and no fluff! Speakers like Markus Egger, Microsoft RD and one of the longest running MVPs, will provide inside information and real-world experiences. This is NOT marketing hype!

This talk aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art techniques in Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Image Generation. We will delve into the evolution of generative models, including Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), Variational Autoencoders (VAEs), and newer architectures, to understand their capabilities and limitations. We will showcase running a simple model locally to better understand the step-by-step process of how an image comes together, and what parameters one can use and set to influence the outcome.

Wednesday, October 25, 2023 - Only 4 weeks to go!

The landscape of freely available Large Language Models (LLMs) has seen remarkable advancements in performance. Through the utilization of quantization techniques, the possibility of running these models on standard computers, without the need for high-end accelerator cards, has become a reality. Join us in this session to explore the motivations behind running LLMs on your own machine, and gain practical insights into the process of deploying and leveraging language models within your projects.
