Demystifying GenAI: A Primer on Vector Search with Spring and Apache Cassandra®

With ChatGPT taking center stage since the beginning of 2023, developers who have not had a chance to work with any forms of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning systems may find themselves either intrigued by the “maze” of new terminologies, or some may be eager to learn more, while perhaps a smaller group may not actually want to get themselves into a territory that’s unknown to them.

This workshop is catered for developers from all backgrounds (Java, Javascript, Python, etc), as we start by having a quick introduction to GenAI, ChatGPT, and all of those new terminologies around generative AI. Then we’ll dive right into the hands-on part, about how we can construct a ChatGPT-based app quickly, using state-of-the-art tools such as DataStax’s Astra DB Vector (powered by Apache Cassandra and the highly performant JVector underneath the hood).

Hands-on lab will cover:
- Astra DB with Vector Search
- LLM providers and APIs
- Integrating with ChatGPT models
- Generating embeddings
- Prompt engineering
- Building generative AI applications
