πŸ‘‰ Build Advanced AI Solutions with Semantic Kernel
Large language models have been a game changer, but they have their limitations. They only know what was generally available up to the point they were trained. They don't have access to recent events, or your own private data. What's worse, if you ask them about something they don't know about, they start making stuff up! That's why we need to build more sophisticated solutions that combine different models, add some prompt engineering and RAG (Retrieval Augmented Generation), maybe some custom code or plugins, and then a few more layers of safety and responsible AI checks.

When you want to combine multiple skills and perform tasks to achieve an objective, you can use tools like LangChain and Semantic Kernel. In this talk, we'll focus on the latter, which is ideally suited to work with .NET, and how we can use it to build advanced AI solutions. We'll also see how you can build an "agent", that goes beyond text responses and that actually does something.
