Machine Learning has become one of the hottest fields of study and application in the last decade and is expected to rule the world for a long time. Very recently, the world of technology was blown away with the introduction of ChatGPT! There is no better time than now to delve into the world of AI. I would like to walk through some of the basic concepts around the building of a Machine Learning application from scratch. We will then move on to understand what Generative AI is and what we can build with the ChatGPT APIs. In this workshop, we will build a fun AI application using generative AI APIs. You do not need to be an expert programmer. Knowledge of python is helpful but not necessary as the code is minimal and intuitive.

The Why: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have become an integral part of our lives. It is also a very fascinating field of study. There’s no better time to learn about these technologies than now! And there’s no better way of learning than some hands-on work. However, given the information overload, it may be overwhelming and confusing to know where to start. This workshop will help you take a few simple steps towards advancing this journey for you. And you will gain information about some excellent yet freely available tools to experiment with the world of AI.

Key Takeaways:

  • Demystifying Generative AI and Machine Learning
  • Know about freely available tools for your DiY journey.
  • How to code your own AI applications in one hour!
