Super Prompt: Generative AI w/ Tony Wan

Nov 6 2023 • 57 mins

Conversation with Jeff DeVerter, Chief Technology Evangelist at Rackspace, a cloud computing company. We explore how they deployed a LLM (Google PaLM)  for a sales application, and how they're enabling their Azure and AWS customers too.

What I learned I learned from Jeff

  1. You should probably go with the LLM of your current cloud provider be it, Google, Microsoft, or Amazon.
  2. All the major vendors have versions of LLMs that can be deployed in a private cloud to ensure data confidentiality.
  3. To fully realize the potential of AI, think  “data pipeline”. So from the get-go, whatever data is created is easily ingested by AI.

And much more!
