Alexander Chatzizacharias
Alexander is a Software Engineer at jDriven. He is of Dutch/Greek nationality. Alexander has a bachelor in Game Development (University of applied sciences of Amsterdam) and a master in Game studies (University of Amsterdam). During his master Alexander developed a passion for gamification and software engineering. One of Alexanders career goals is bringing game development and software engineering closer together. He believes that both industries can learn a lot from each other, and is continuously trying to mix technologies and methodologies from both fields.
Vector databases have emerged as an exciting new tech in the world of data storage. Unsurprisingly enough, they have become the go-to choice for storing vectors (who would have thought?!) and are widely used in conjunction with generative AI. Apart from their use in AI applications, they can also be extremely handy as search engines, especially if you are looking to implement natural language interfaces. If you're reading this and eager to harness the power of vector databases to bring your application to the next level, then this talk is tailor-made for you!
Whether you're an experienced database professional or an adventurous developer seeking fresh perspectives, Alexander will guide you through the process of getting started with a Vector Database. He will demonstrate how to translate your data into vectors and master the art of querying that data. From text search to image search to generative search, Alexander's goal is to provide an engaging introduction to Vector Databases and, hopefully, inspire you to explore their full potential.
