Workshop: Generative AI for Business Applications

Join our one-day Workshop on Generative AI, perfect for business leaders and data scientists, regardless of coding skills. Dive deep into Generative AI, from basic Prompt Engineering to cutting-edge applications including Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) and AI workflow optimization. Make AI work for your business with just 6 hours! 

Next session: TBD

Using tools provided in class, we cover the following course content. Basic knowledge of machine learning and Python programming is recommended, but not required. You do not need to be a programmer to fully benefit from this workshop.

Course Outline:

  1. Introduction to Generative AI and LLMs
    • Fundamentals of generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs)
    • The architecture (transformers) and training methods of LLMs
    • Business cases of LLMs and useful tools
  2. Effective Prompt Engineering (PE)
    • PE principles and advanced techniques
    • Security attacks and defense
    • Prompt engineering hands-on
  3. Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG)
    • RAG pipeline and practice
    • Text embedding and vector database
    • RAG hands-on
  4. Tools, Workflow and Fine-Tuning
    • Tools/Workflow/Agents and hands-on
    • Fine-tuning and computational demands
    • Fine-tuning demonstration
  5. Safety, Ethics, and Transformative Potential
    • Safety and ethics issues in LLM applications
    • Explore PE, RAG, and fine-tuning for risk management
    • The transformative potential of generative AI

The workshop is based on some of the key learnings from preparing a master class for the MS BAPM and FinTech programs. It typically takes the format of one-day training of 6 hours, but can be customized to the length and format most suited for your needs. For workshop related inquiries, contact us here.

Certificate of Completion and Micro-credential

Upon successful completion of the “Generative AI for Business Applications” course, participants will be awarded a Certificate of Completion, detailing the number of contact hours (instruction) and specifying the field of study as “Information Technology” for continuing education purposes. This course offers 6 contact hours. Additionally, a micro-credential will be provided to acknowledge the specialized knowledge and skills about Generative AI acquired, offering a competitive edge in the application of Generative AI within various business contexts.
