Talk Abstracts:

Using ChatGPT + Elastic for Creating Domain-Specific Q&A - Tanya Kalich, Solution Architect at Elastic

ChatGPT can read and respond to human language. It would be great to use that for your business, if it didn’t have the following shortcomings:

  • it lies convincingly
  • its information is out of date
  • it might say wonderful (possibly true) things about your competitor

How do we use the magnificent functionality in ChatGPT while ensuring that we don’t run into the problems? It’s all about the domain. In this talk, we’ll discuss the steps to do this and then actually walk through them together to create our own useful, reliable natural language client.

Recent Highlights in O11y and What's Next - Vinay Chandrasekhar Director, Product Management @ Elastic

Let's get together and chat (the human kind, not the GPT kind ;) ) about recent enhancements in the Elastic Observability solution and what's on the radar. From our ECS contribution to OTel to Kubernetes monitoring to Synthetics to Universal Profiling, there's an exciting spectrum of observability capabilities that we'll be talking about.
