Our schedule is now live!

We have just released the first version of our schedule for Berlin Buzzwords 2023! You can now explore our conference program, find interesting sessions and plan what to attend during your stay at #bbuzz!

A few highlights from this year’s program include:

  • Our keynote by Jennifer Ding; she will unpack this year’s big buzzwords “open AI” and “responsible AI”.
  • Suman Karumuri will share experiences, best practices, and lessons learned in designing and operating a serverless Lucene serving system at PB scale.
  • Fascinated by vector search but don’t know where to start? Join Atita Arora to crack the code and leverage the potential of vector search to delight your users.
  • Communicating technical knowledge effectively is a core skill for practitioners, but one which is often neglected. Sophie Watson will give practical advice on how to (and not to!) communicate technical ideas.
  • Jo Kristian Bergum will discuss using generative Large Language Models (LLMs) to generate synthetic labeled data to train in-domain ranking models and distilling the knowledge and power of generative LLMs into effective ranking models.

We also want to remind you of our traditional Barcamp hosted by Nick Burch! It will take place on Sunday, June 18th starting at 15:00 CEST. Barcamps are informal sessions, a kind of “un-conference”, with a schedule decided on the day. It is all driven by the interests and expertise of those who attend, so each one is different, but ours are always great! It is open to everyone with an onsite ticket for Berlin Buzzwords, and there is no pre-registration required.

We are very much looking forward to meeting all of you in June, either in Berlin or Online! And if you haven’t already, get your ticket for Buzzwords now!
