The AI & Big Data Expo North America conference in Santa Clara, CA, held on June 5 and 6, 2024, brought together industry leaders, innovators, and experts to explore the innovative developments in artificial intelligence and big data. As an event sponsor, SoftServe played a pivotal role, showcasing its expertise and thought leadership through various sessions and panels.
Notably, Nataliya Polyakovska, Lead AI Consultant at SoftServe, delivered a compelling keynote and participated in two influential panel discussions.

Revolutionizing Learning: Unleashing the Power of Generative AI in Education and Beyond

Unleashing the Power of Generative AI in Education and Beyond

In her keynote, Polyakovska highlighted the transformative potential of Gen AI and large language models (LLMs) in education. With the proliferation of information far outstripping human ability for comprehension, she emphasized the necessity of making knowledge accessible, personalized, and engaging. She delved into the current advancements in Gen AI, focusing on models like GPT-4 and Claude 3 Opus, and how they bridge educational gaps where students lag through data insight, virtual agents, and content creation.

One of the key highlights was the introduction of AYO, an AI-powered educational platform designed to personalize learning and enhance parental engagement. Polyakovska explained how AYO uses the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to scale its AI solutions, providing robust implementation and widespread impact. She illustrated the real-world benefits of these technologies through a case study from Mesquite ISD, where Gen AI helped tailor learning experiences to students’ individual passions and aptitudes.

Panel Session: Safe, Secure, and Responsible Data & AI

In the panel session on building, advancing, and securing big data and AI systems, Polyakovska joined experts to discuss the critical aspects of ethics, data privacy, and fairness in AI. She underscored the importance of ethical guidelines and frameworks to confirm AI systems are fair and transparent. Highlighting the necessity of securing data against breaches and unauthorized access, she stressed compliance with privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA.

The discussion also tackled the challenge of mitigating bias in AI algorithms. Polyakovska emphasized the need for diverse datasets to call for fairness across different demographics, pointing out that bias in AI perpetuates and worsens social inequalities if not properly addressed.

Panel Session: Gen AI & MLOps for the Optimized Enterprise

In the other panel session, focusing on Gen AI and machine learning operations (MLOps) for enterprise optimization, Polyakovska explored how Gen AI drives innovation across product development, customer interaction, and content generation. She highlighted the significant role of MLOps in managing the lifecycle of generative models, which includes versioning, scaling, and updating models due to their inherent complexity.

Establishing the quality and reliability of outputs from generative models was a key topic. Polyakovska discussed validation frameworks and real-time monitoring strategies that enterprises may adopt to keep high standards. These strategies are crucial as generative models become more integrated into various business processes, requiring consistent performance and reliability.
