About Event

We're excited to announce an upcoming hands-on workshop focused on building AI chatbots with Llama2.

This interactive session will provide an under-the-hood look at the advanced Llama2 architecture and how to leverage its capabilities to create conversational AI.

Developers of all levels are welcome to join us on Thursday, July 27th from 6-9PM at the Pangea HQ in Palo Alto. Over the course of the 3-hour workshop, attendees will learn about integrating Llama2 into a software stack, running containerized models locally or in the cloud, and configuring a Next.js front-end to connect the API.

Through code examples and demos, participants will get to build their own chatbot powered by Llama2 with guidance from our team. We'll cover deploying across various hardware configurations to optimize performance (Cuda, XLA, Metal, etc...). If you're interested in learning how to create your own conversational AI using this powerful language model, register now as space is limited.

Light refreshments will be provided. We're looking forward to diving into the code and architectures behind Llama2 with you!

This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience building and deploying an AI chatbot.
