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?

Data-driven is the how tech is going right now, and the next step is becoming AI-driven. This applies to any field, 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, are also AI-driven.

Bringing innovation to your work means keeping up with these 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.
