If you don’t have the Symbl.ai Community Meetings added to your calendar, you might want to do that now. This month’s meeting is June 28/29th, and we have a great topic for you as we explore LLMs and Generative AI. If you know the terms but don’t understand what they mean, this is a great moment to join the Symbl.ai Community and set aside the time to learn!

The discussion topics will include:

  • An introduction to Large Language Models (LLMs), discuss what LLaMA (Large Language Model Meta AI) is and how it differs from ChatGPT
  • An introduction to BabyAGI and AutoGPT and how they differ from each other
  • Finally, we will discuss the differences between Generative AI and Task-Driven AI Agents

If we still don’t have your attention, I think the demos (yes, plural) for this meeting should be pretty cool.

This month’s meetings will be taking place:

We invite you to come to learn more about LLMs and Generative AI, ask questions, or join in the discussion related to conversation AI/ML.

What is the best way to do that? Just…

Whether you are information gathering, in development, or utilizing LLMs/Generative AI, knowing what lies ahead can be incredibly advantageous. It promises to be an engaging discussion!

Since we grabbed your attention, here are other happenings within the community…

Expanded Weekly Office Hours

We have expanded our weekly Office Hours to include the time slot of Tuesday at 6 pm PST, and we continue to have the Friday at 10 am Pacific session as well. Office Hours is an informal gathering – not recorded – without a predetermined agenda or curated presentations.

The primary goal is to create a comfortable and secure environment for open discussions, which means no meeting notes or recordings will be taken. Whether you seek assistance with a specific problem, wish to engage in conversation regarding topics related to conversation AI/ML, or want to discuss something unrelated, we encourage you to stop by!

Join the Symbl.ai Google Group to get Access to the Google Calendar.

We are excited to hear from and engage with the community in all the events happening in June. We look forward to seeing you all there!

May 2023 Community Meeting Recap

In our May 2023 meeting, we discussed Enterprise Conversations Architectures. We looked at an off-the-shelf and free-to-use implementation available for anyone interested in building out a scalable conversation-based application. The code is open source and provides a pluggable infrastructure where anyone can easily extend the functionality to fit their business needs or reuse some existing community-developed plugins.

The slides have been posted, as well as the recording for the meeting, which you can view below:
