Andriy Mulyar, Founder & CTO @ Nomic AI

"Nomic Atlas: Scaling Embedding and ML infrastructure to find insights in 10 million text documents"


Finding insights in unstructured data shouldn't require a data scientist or a machine learning engineer. In this talk, I will discuss the tooling behind Nomic's Atlas (https://atlas.nomic.ai) - the first embedding powered AI platform engineered to let anyone uncover insights in and interact with massive unstructured datasets of text, images, video and audio.

Prior to Nomic, Andriy was an early engineer at RadAI where he trained multi-billion parameter LLMs to assist radiologists and a Ph.D. student at NYU's Courant Institute for Mathematical Sciences.


Shashikant Kuwar, Director @ Annalect

"How and why build data mesh to super-charge cross-team and cross company collaboration"


Enterprise worldwide is scrambling to optimize data assets ahead of anticipated never-before-seen demand, driven by advances in large language models — completely unaware of their own data selfishness.

Understandably, most organizations are focused solely on their own data, missing an opportunity to enhance cross-organization and even inter-organization collaboration — with clients, vendors, and partners.


As early adopters of Data Mesh in 2021, w at Annalect, the Data Engineering & Tech arm of Omnicom crystalized our data strategy, clarified data ownership, and federated data policies — all while increasing our ability to accommodate wide-ranging teams’ needs. Now just two years old, our data mesh has matured into a framework for collaboration with clients, vendors, and partners. We learned a lot along the way, and we’d like to share our story, including real-world pitfalls, solutions, and tweaks. The talk includes a conceptual overview of what is data mesh and how to build one cross-cloud leveraging Terraform.


Bio: Shashikant Kuwar is the Director of DevOps Engineering at Annalect, where he drives the DevOps strategy and promotes a culture of automation and continuous improvement. He provides strategic direction for DevOps initiatives, leads a team of talented engineers, and emphasizes the use of cloud-native technologies and CI/CD pipelines.


We look forward to seeing you on what looks to be a great night.
