3 Steps to GenAI Success for Cassandra Teams


Teams are being pressured to bring AI features to existing applications but it’s all very overwhelming. You know how to work with application data...but making the jump to AI is daunting? Is this you? Come learn how to unlock the potential of Generative AI (GenAI) with your Apache Cassandra data! Join us for a workshop designed specifically for teams currently utilizing Apache Cassandra, DataStax Astra, and DataStax Enterprise.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • The Basics of Generative AI: This session will help you understand the parts of Generative AI and why it's becoming an indispensable feature in the tech landscape. We'll demystify GenAI technologies and discuss their relevance to data-driven organizations. Retrieval-Augmented Generation(RAG). Vector Search. Large Language Models. LangChain. LlamaIndex. Embeddings. A lot of words but we’ll help you get up to speed.
  • How Cassandra Fits: Learn how recent changes to Cassandra have made this even more accessible. Even with older versions of Cassandra, there are interesting use cases to be had.
  • Three Steps to Integration Success:
    • Step 1: Identifying Opportunities - Finding use cases and narrowing them down to your first POC.
    • Step 2: Implementing Solutions - From the simple to the more complex, you will be surprised how simple it is to start and show results. A large volume of code and libraries exist to get you from idea to production quickly.
    • Step 3: Measuring Impact and Iterating - Learn how to effectively measure the success of your GenAI projects and use these insights to iterate and improve continuously. We'll discuss KPIs, feedback loops, and strategies for scaling GenAI initiatives.
  • Live Q&A Session: Have your questions answered by our experts in real-time. Whether you're curious about technical details, implementation strategies, or potential challenges, we're here to help. We’ll also give you ways to keep the conversation going after the fact. It’s never a one-and-done!

If your boss is asking about when AI will start showing up in your product, tell them it will be right after this workshop. You will leave feeling much more comfortable with Generative AI concepts and ideas of how you can leverage all that beautiful data in your Cassandra clusters.
