Sisir Koppaka is a practising Data Scientist and Software Engineer working at the intersection of data and Scala. I've been building AI systems from the ground up for over 10 years, and the role of Scala has only ever expanded in this time frame. I'm especially interested in the recent advances in LLMs and how these can help unlock a variety of new use cases when supported by the Scala language.
Abstract - Scala is an incredibly powerful, type safe language. Large Language Models (LLMs) are the starting point of AI applications today. Integrating Scala with LLMs provides a powerful toolkit that can abstract over a larger variety of data and still retain the benefits of type safety.
