Workshop – Generative AI: From Basic Concepts to Real-World Applications
Thursday, June 22, 2023 – Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa, Las Vegas
Full-day: 8:30am – 4:30pm PDT
Intended Audience: Interested in generative AI.
Knowledge Level: This intermediate-level workshop is intended for participants with at least some technical background, such as hands-on coding or familiarity with the basics of machine learning methods.
Generative AI has taken the world by storm, scaling machine learning to viably generate the written word, images, music, speech, video, and more. To the public, it is by far the most visible deployment of machine learning. To futurists, it is the most human-like. And to industry leaders, it has the widest, most untapped range of potential use cases.
In this workshop, participants will get an introduction to generative AI and its concepts and techniques. The workshop will cover different techniques for image, text, and 3D object generation, and so forth. Participants will also learn how prompts can be used to guide and generate output from generative AI models. Real-world applications of generative AI will be discussed, including image and video synthesis, text generation, and data augmentation. Ethical considerations when working with generative AI, including data privacy, bias, and fairness, will also be covered. Hands-on exercises will provide participants with practical experience using generative AI tools and techniques. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a solid understanding of generative AI and how it can be applied in various domains.
