Join us on the journey from the concept to value of Generative AI (GenAI). Starting from the basics, we shed light on the essential concepts and uses of AI and GenAI, while distinguishing between different types therein.

Hear about the real-world case study of the Tana Project to show how these powerful technologies can be used to improve customer experiences. 

This Crash Course recording covers everything from understanding the design process of AI to getting a hands-on feel of the deployment and testing of GenAI models. Furthermore, we go into the ethical, risk, and regulatory considerations of GenAI, wrapping up with a look into what the future holds for this exciting field. A lively Q&A session concludes the Crash Course, ensuring you walk away with a well-rounded understanding of GenAI.

See the Crash Course and learn:

  • What is GenAI and what are the trends and future directions of this field of GenAI?
  • What is the architecture of Generative models and what it requires from data?
  • How to create value with GenAI?
  • How GenAI can be utilised for improving CX via the real use case of Tana?
