Java meets AI: Build LLM-Powered Apps with LangChain4j
Conference (INTERMEDIATE level)
Do you want to build applications powered by Large Language Models (LLMs) using Java?
We built LangChain4j exactly for that! The framework allows you to easily create AI-powered chatbots, process loads of unstructured data, and automate processes with the help of AI Services, that can use various tools: call APIs, access databases, and even dynamically execute generated code. You will get a hands-on guided tour through LangChain4j's functionality and its integrations (OpenAI, Google Gemini, HuggingFace, Dall-E, Quarkus, Spring Boot, etc.). We will explain the fundamental building blocks of LLM-powered applications and show you how to chain them together into AI Services. By the end of this session, you will have all the technical knowledge to start coding, along with plenty of inspiration for designing the new generation of apps.
AI and Large Language Models are revolutionizing the way we code, what we build, and how we engage users. From requirement analysis to testing, pull requests, and dependency management, AI enables automation of various steps and processes in the Software Development Lifecycle. In this session, we'll delve into the latest AI advancements and tools shaping the future of software development. Get ready to peek into the exciting possibilities ahead. Join in to discover how you can leverage these cutting-edge AI developments to enhance your daily work and advance your career path.
