AI Governance: A Maker’s Responsibility

What comes to mind when you hear "governance"? Rules, red tape, individuals who you swear just say no, the party pooper department. Well, lucky you, you've found the person on a mission to make governance fun! We all love using AI in our solutions, and we know it’s the future.

During this session, participants will get an overview of AI governance, a maker’s role in testing, proper guardrails in text models, ensuring accuracy in output, and ensuring users aren’t abusing AI in your solutions.

Implementing AI on a Budget

Last time I checked, money doesn’t grow on trees. If it did, would we even be here?

Artificial intelligence is an amazing tool, and something everyone seems to be talking about and implementing. If you’re asking, what are the associated costs, how can I get started, and how can I limit my costs, you’ve come to the right place!

During this session, I want to equip you with the knowledge to make an informed decision by exploring different cost structures, strategies to limit costs, and the most cost-effective entry if you’re just looking to get started. We’ll specifically be looking at Microsoft’s offering, OpenAI, and Google’s Gemini.

We won’t be looking at AI tools built by third parties, but rather on offerings that allow individuals to implement AI into their solutions. Also, we won't do any sort technical deep dive on the technology behind each offering. I'll simply provide an overview to help users get started and understand high level differences.
