About Talk

Orchestrate your AI with Semantic Kernel

Semantic Kernel is an open-source SDK that integrates Large Language Models (LLMs) like OpenAI, Azure OpenAI, and Hugging Face with conventional programming languages like C#, Python, and Java. Semantic Kernel achieves this by allowing you to define plugins that can be chained together in just a few lines of code.

However, Semantic Kernel’s ability to automatically orchestrate plugins with AI makes it unique. With Semantic Kernel planners, you can ask an LLM to generate a plan that achieves a user’s unique goal. Afterwards, Semantic Kernel will execute the plan for the user.

This talk will focus on how to build an AI solution with Semantic Kernel.
