Welcome to our transformative two-day workshop, "Generative AI for Developers," an immersive journey designed for developers, data scientists, and AI enthusiasts. Dive into the world of Large Language Models, mastering prompt engineering with hands-on experiences in ChatGPT, OpenAI API, and advanced prompting techniques. Explore the realms of Retrieval Augmented Generation, including practical applications with Bing Chat and building RAG pipelines. Uncover the exciting intersection of AI and vision, creating and reasoning about images with tools like DALL-E 3. The workshop has been designed to elevate your skills in data analysis and custom GPTs, offering insights into fine-tuning LLMs, addressing ethical considerations, and implementing AI guardrails. Join us for this comprehensive workshop to gain expertise, engage in practical learning, network with professionals, and stay at the forefront of AI innovation.

Format: Each module of this workshop is designed to include an overview and theory of a particular concept, followed by hands-on exercises using the ChatGPT UI and OpenAI API.

  • Overview

  • Hands-on exercises

  • Implementation through the ChatGPT user interface

  • Python Implementation in Jupyter Notebook / Colab

Please note: This course is designed for individuals with some background in programming and AI (or related fields), given its focus on advanced topics and practical applications.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Apply prompt engineering techniques in ChatGPT, explore OpenAI API functionalities, and implement various prompting methods to generate code efficiently.

  • Construct a Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) pipeline, integrating semantic search and Bing Chat, to demonstrate practical applications and use-cases for RAG.

  • Generate images using Bing Image Creator and DALL-E, and reason about images using GPT-4V, showcasing the versatility of generative AI in vision-related tasks.

  • Utilize ChatGPT for advanced data analysis, create custom GPTs for specific applications, and implement interactive AI systems using the OpenAI Assistants API.

  • Engage in hands-on fine-tuning exercises, comparing prompt engineering and fine-tuning, evaluating and debugging models, and addressing ethical considerations and biases in generative AI.

Leo’s Workshop, Beaconhouse School System

Course: Introduction to Business

The overall experience that I’ve had with this course is just amazing. It’s like a micro MBA that LUMS can have you do in less than two months. It’s a very rigorous course, it’s time-consuming and very hands-on and is a learning experience that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.

Course: Practical Auditing

This course holds a lot of significance because I gained a hands-on, practical understanding of auditing before stepping into the professional world. The instructor created this well-rounded course and allowed us to develop a work ethic that helped me excel in the workplace. This certificate on my resume has opened many doors for me, and I feel like I have got a head-start among my professional counterparts.
