Making Friends with Generative Models

Andrew Colombi Andrew Colombi | Co-Founder & CTO | Tonic

Today's organizations are experiencing a data dilemma caused by two competing forces. On the one hand, teams need ever increasing access to data to get their jobs done; on the other, security and privacy requirements are locking that data down.

This issue affects many teams across a modern company: Sales needs data to deliver compelling demos, Engineering needs data to build the next release, and Design needs data to imagine new features. In this talk we'll outline how and when to use generative models to delight your colleagues and be a data hero for your company.
