In-Person and Virtual Conference

September 5th to 6th, 2024 – London

Featuring 200 hours of content, 90 thought leaders and experts, and 40+ workshops and training sessions, Europe 2024 will keep you up-to-date with the latest topics and tools in everything from machine learning to generative AI and more.


Trending Large Language Models


This model hopes to shake the world of large language models by setting a new standard for enterprise-grade natural language processing. Designed for robust text analytics and generation, DBRX excels in information retrieval, text summarization, machine translation, conversational AI, and content creation. Its key features include open-source accessibility, scalability, and seamless integration with the popular Databricks platform. 

If employed well, DBRX can empower organizations to unlock the full potential of NLP, gain deeper insights from text data, automate processes, and drive innovation, all while freeing humans to handle complex/creative/strategic tasks for which they’re better suited. 


Developed by X.AI, and currently available to X+ subscribers on the social media platform, Grok-1 is not just a language model; it’s an entire operating system geared towards AI applications. This 314 billion parameter “mixture of experts” model facilitates robust AI workflows and enhances the efficiency of machine learning operations across various platforms. According to xAI, Grok 1 was trained from scratch using a custom training stack on top of JAX and Rust. 


On the Hugging Face platform, the CodeLlama-34B model stands out with its 34 billion parameters, tailored for developers needing advanced code comprehension and generation. This model hopes to become an indispensable tool for coding professionals and even anyone who is involved in software development.

Innovative AI Tools for 2024


Now think about this. Imagine an encyclopedia that evolves and keeps pace in a way that wasn’t possible until recently. Well, then check out Cosmopedia. This tool is hosted on Hugging Face, leverages AI to continuously update its database, providing the most current and relevant information across a multitude of topics.


From the creators of Lightning AI, Thunder is an open-source framework that dramatically simplifies the deployment of AI applications at scale. Whether you’re managing data pipelines or deploying machine learning models, Thunder makes the process smooth and efficient. 


DeepMind’s Genie is a tool designed for personal productivity that integrates seamlessly with your daily activities, harnessing the power of AI to optimize your workflows and tasks. 

PyRIT (Python Runtime Inference Toolkit)

This is a library designed to revolutionize machine learning inference at runtime. It empowers developers to optimize and accelerate their machine learning models, enabling them to achieve superior performance and reduce latency. One thing developers enjoy is PyRIT’s user-friendly interface and comprehensive set of features make it an ideal choice for machine learning practitioners of all skill levels.

The best part is that PyRIT is compatible with popular machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch, making it a versatile tool that can be seamlessly integrated into existing workflows. Developers can easily apply PyRIT’s optimizations to their models without the need for extensive modifications.


Making its debut back in December, OpenAI’s Sora is focused on delivering contextual understanding and conversational capabilities that go beyond the ordinary, offering nuanced interactions tailored to the specific needs of its users. Though some filmmakers are feeling the heat with Sora, it’s still a long way from replacing the traditional filmmaking process and so far makes amazing high-quality videos from prompts.

Mistral AI

Mistral AI introduces a suite of tools aimed at automating and enhancing the creative processes across various industries. Whether you’re into marketing, design, or content creation, Mistral AI can transform how you work.

Honorable Mention

GPT Store

As a special nod, the GPT Store by OpenAI merits mention. It’s a marketplace for customizing and enhancing GPT models tailored to specific business needs, offering a versatile range of options to adopt and adapt large language models in practical, industry-specific applications.
