ABOUT

LLM Avalanche 2023

LLM Avalanche is a community meetup in San Francisco on June 26th, 2023, put together by a global coalition of leading AI communities from the Bay Area and around the world and nonprofit foundations for Data Science and AI.  LLM Avalanche opens the week of Data+AI Summit 2023 and is sponsored by Databricks, Linux Foundation, NumFOCUS, Scale By the Bay, and MLOps Community.  The meetup features world-class LLM experts from startups and enterprises leading the field of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative AI.

The meetup will feature panels and lightning talks hosted at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, a modern venue next to the Moscone Center, where the Data+AI Summit 2023 will be held in the same week.  The LLM topics are technical and include performance, trust, energy, bias, safety, and deep dive into the guts of the systems harnessing LLM for production use.  We eschew the now-usual “will AI kill us and take our jobs” for a hard look inside it.  If you know how it works, you can decide for yourself!  And you can build a better future with us!  The donation passes (minimum $1) for data science education in Africa.
