Natalie Pistunovich
Aerospike, Lead Developer Advocate

Natalie is a learner, a Google Developer Expert for Go, a public speaker and a sailor.

When she's not working on robust systems with Aerospike, she is organizing the GopherCon Europe and Cloud Nein conferences, and the Berlin chapters of the Go and Women Techmakers user groups.

In her free time, she is wondering if there is life on Mars.


In 2020, OpenAI has launched GPT-3, an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text which was trained on 175 Billion parameters.
In 2021, Google AI has open sourced Switch Transformer, an artificial intelligence language model which was trained on 1.6 Trillion parameters.
How do these developments affect the tech industry?

It’s a safe bet that the state of tech as we know it will change to be AI-driven. This is already affecting a wide range of fields, from meditation apps, through investment robots to the cloud infrastructure. This won’t stop there, as new fields that are being disrupted by tech, like legal-tech, med-tech and others, also have an AI component.

Keeping up with these changes requires changes across all the tech teams - product, software, DevOps, QA, etc. In this talk we will cover the current state of AI and how you can make your product and teams future-compatible.
