Generative pre-trained transformer (GPT) algorithms have taken artificial intelligence from obscurity into the mainstream. The latest developments in large language models and the impact that they could have on society is now front-page news.

But what is a generative pre-trained transformer, and how does it work? How can these algorithms be leveraged by application developers to deliver real business value?

In this workshop, Alan and Jakob will demonstrate how to use the Azure OpenAI service to access and interact with these powerful GPT models, including ChatGPT, GPT-4, and code generation models. You will learn how to create applications that can generate high-quality text and code using the Azure OpenAI service. The integration of company knowledgebases to provide a ChatGPT experience personalized to your business requirements will be covered along with the concepts of prompt engineering to influence the outputs generated by the model.

The workshop will also cover the concepts of responsible AI and how these can be applied to generative models such as GPT.

By the end of this workshop, you will have a solid understanding of the capabilities and potential of the Azure OpenAI GPT models and how you can leverage them in in your own solutions.

This workshop will cover

  • Overview of GPT algorithms
  • GPT usage scenarios
  • Hosting GPT models in Microsoft Azure Open AI services
  • GPT algorithm theory and internals
  • Code generation with GPT
  • Using prompt engineering to produce reliable results
  • Implementing retrieval augmented generation (RAG) with ChatGPT and Azure Search
  • Applying responsible AI to GPT solutions
  • Build solutions in Python and C# that utilizes Azure OpenAI service

Hands-on labs will be available in C# and Python. You will need access to an Azure subscription and the Azure Open AI service for the hands-on labs.
