BOSTON—April 18, 2023O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced a lineup of content, courses, and events focused on the emergence of large language models (LLMs) and ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot developed by OpenAI. Central to these resources is the ChatGPT: Possibilities and Pitfalls live event sponsored by deepset, taking place on Tuesday, April 25, from 11:00am to 3:00pm ET.

The virtual event features O’Reilly founder and CEO Tim O’Reilly in discussion with Microsoft corporate vice president of search and AI Jordi Ribas and GitHub CEO Thomas Dohmke, two business leaders who have already revolutionized their products with advanced AI. Expert speakers will address the potential impacts of ChatGPT and large language models, explain how to avoid missteps as organizations look to integrate this new AI, and share actionable ways to deal with large datasets and data augmentation, various model architectures, domain adaptation, and inference challenges.

The event schedule includes the following sessions:

  • Reshaping Search with Bing—Jordi Ribas and Tim O’Reilly
  • The Future of Developer AI and Copilot X—Thomas Dohmke and Tim O’Reilly
  • Connecting GPT with Your Data: How to Tailor Responses to Your Use Case and Avoid Hallucination—Malte Pietsch, cofounder and CTO at deepset

“I’ve been present for—and participated in—some of the biggest technological advancements of the past four decades. Today, we are at the next inflection point — one that is perhaps the most impactful yet,” said Tim O’Reilly. “However, we can’t properly harness what we do not understand. Learning about large language models is now vital for every business and every knowledge worker.”

On June 27, 2023, O’Reilly will present a special AI event hosted by analyst, consultant, engineer, researcher, and writer George Anadiotis, featuring Hugging Face research lead Nazneen Rajani. Titled “What’s New in AI: Large Language Model Evaluation, Robustness, and Interpretability,” the event gives users the chance to hear from leading minds in the field on topics such as generative AI, large language models, responsible AI, current regulations, and other notable developments.
