How to Run A Large Language Model (LLM) Locally on your PC or Laptop
Online

cover photo

How to run a Large Lanuage Model on your PC or Laptop

Large language models are essentially large files (think GB in size!) that contain information somone can draw upon with a prompt. You've undoubtedly heard of (or used) OpenAI, which uses the ChatGPT LLM.

All OpenAI is is someone else's computer with a large language model installed. So why not do the same thing on your home computer?

For this event I'll walk through how to install an interface to chat with an AI model, download a model that works for you, and how to interface it.

This is intended to be more of a workshop, but since it takes a long time to install and download the models, this is more of a class format (it will be recorded and shared later with attendees).

After the tutorial attendees will be able to contact me with any questions about the process.

What will you need for the tutorial?

A computer. And, of course, an Internet connection. If you have a computer with a graphic card, opt for that, but you can use a local LLM on your laptop all the same.

To Make the Most of the Class

This isn't required, but if you have the technical know-how, I'd highly recommend doing the following:

Again, if these instructions don't make sense or you find them confusing, don't worry! I'm not expecting anyone to have done this.

Still have questions? Feel free to reach out to me on XMPP: xmpp://[email protected]

Hacking a SaaS: A Practical Guide to Understanding Attack and Defense
Solutional Inc

Hacking a SaaS: A Practical Guide to Understanding Attackers and Defending Against Them

In this talk, we will delve into the mindset of an attacker and explore the vulnerabilities they exploit in SaaS systems. We will cover the following topics:

What motivates hackers to target SaaS systems (5%) How hackers conduct reconnaissance on SaaS systems (50%) The anatomy of exploit chains (40%) Strategies for defending against attacks (5%) Our goal is to provide a practical guide to understanding attackers and defending against them. We will share lots of hacker tips and tricks, and provide plenty of quiz moments to train your intuition. Our focus will be on vulnerabilities that hackers actually care about, rather than theoretical ones. All of our examples will be based on real-world exploit chains, and we will explore multiple vulnerabilities chained together to create media-news-headline-worthy outcomes. By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of how attackers think and operate, and you will be better equipped to defend against their attacks.

Hiring Startup Teams - Interactive Workshop for Founders and Hiring Teams of (esp. early stage) startup teams
Concourse Coffee

Topics we'll cover:

🙋🏿‍♂️ Values and Culture-Alignment

🔦 Find Startup-specific Talent

👩🏻‍🏫 Recruiting 101

👷🏾‍♀️ Building a Hiring Process

🕵🏻‍♂️ Scoping Needs + Roles

Hiring is often the hardest things leaders need to do. And is also the most critical as people are the most important and differentiating part of our companies.

We often hear "we want that startup-gene", or "the intangibles" and have built this workshop towards building out an understanding and concrete language for identifying these target ideal candidate profiles, esp. leaning into the soft skill and value/impact/motivation alignment match. As we all know, the only thing we know for sure in these early hires is that their role will change over the coming months - so we need to be sure we're not over indexing towards hard skills that won't be as important later.

This workshop will be interactive as participants feel comfortable, and the goal is to learn from the facilitating team (at Hustle Hunters), each other, and especially ourselves during this session.

In terms of what to expect - There will be a mix of knowledge sharing and best practices from the facilitating team, small group discussions, and self-reflection work.

Who should attend?:

Anyone who is hiring and building out a critical team within a startup (or scale-up) where the stakes are high, and so often the only thing we "know" is that everything in their role will change over the coming months. So we need to make sure we're defining and hiring folks with a builders and owners mentality, that are values-aligned with our organizations. Even if you've hired before - we'll dig into your unique organization's values and needs to help create a repeatable framework and shared language for making consistently aligned hires that will become the foundation of your organization.

Who is leading this workshop?

Nikki Adamson (Founder, CEO of Hustle Hunters) will be facilitating this discussion, and bringing in her experience supporting dozens of founders as they go about their critical early stage hires. Hustle Hunters is a human-focused recruiting and consulting form that supports early stage startups in building out their foundational teams with an emphasis on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.

Portland Open Data Day 2023 Disco Tech
through Portland Building

To the civic tech community, data analysts, open software developers, designers, advocates, community, and local organizations working on data, local residents and all those interested in civic data.

This event is an opportunity to engage with local residents to explore the City’s neighborhood data and other City of Portland open datasets and maps. This Disco Tech will include workshops and tables to help people to learn about data from zero to subject matter experts.

"DiscoTech" is short for "Discovering Technology." It is a term coined by the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition which defines a replicable model for a multimedia, mobile neighborhood workshop fair. DiscoTechs are designed so that participants learn more about the impact and possibilities of technology within our communities.

The purpose of this event is to create a space for local residents and organizations to explore Portland neighborhoods data and other city open datasets. You can explore developing apps or spreadsheets to facilitate data visualization. Or, do your own data exploration and analysis, enhance the city data with other datasets; Or, dig deeper and explore metadata and link information underneath.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn, propose ideas and projects to others, join a team or individually, and develop their own analysis and apps that may contribute to our larger Portland Community. Multicultural, socially responsible, and projects in languages other than English are encouraged.

The Smart City PDX program team members are committed to dismantling barriers derived from systemic discrimination that have reduced the voice of marginal communities in Portland. We base our approach on digital rights and equity principles like Targeted Universalism and the Smart City PDX Priorities Framework to build local policy that promotes equity and fairness.

We want this event to become a collaborative space, rather than something competitive. So, we won’t be offering prizes or awards; however, we will be able to incentivize community participation.

Projects will have the opportunity to be featured in the Smart City PDX site.

Be creative! Learn! Explore!

ShotSpotter / acoustic surveillance community teach-in and workshop!
Online

As you've likely seen in local media lately, gun violence in Portland has been on the rise. In response, the City of Portland commissioned a task force to study the issue and recommend actions that city commissioners can take to address the issue and solve the problem (reduce gun violence). After several months of meetings, the Focused Intervention Team / Community Oversight Group (FIT/COG) submitted a recommendation to Mayor Ted Wheeler in favor of adopting ShotSpotter gunshot detection technology.

What is ShotSpotter, and how does it work? Are its results accurate and is the technology effective? Has it been successful in other cities that have implemented it? What are the trade-offs, and would the benefits outweigh the costs — in terms of both financial and negative impacts to the community?

Join us for a two-part event to learn more about ShotSpotter and other gunshot detection systems and forms of acoustic surveillance! Decide for yourself whether this tool might be effective in solving Portland's gun violence problem.

During the event's first half, learn from our panelists how ShotSpotter and other gunshot detection technologies work and how they've performed in other cities.

The second half of the meeting will be a workshop, where you can learn more about what happens with the FIT/COG recommendation. Ways you can provide input into whether ShotSpotter should be installed in Portland.

Bring your questions, and come learn how you can make your voice heard on this issue!

Please RSVP via this Meetup page or by sending an email to [email protected].

How do we fix privacy?
Online

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. The consequences to us individually and collectively are significant, but what can we do about it?

Rice will also discuss managing trade-offs and what steps we can take individually and collectively to better protect our privacy, as well as provide some privacy-focused tech tips and tricks.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise in threat-modeling and evaluating privacy-related tradeoffs geared at helping attendees better protect their own privacy and manage privacy-related tradeoffs in their own lives.

Why Privacy Matters
Online

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise in threat-modeling geared at helping attendees better understand the individual risks posed to them by different types of surveillance.

This is part-2 of a special 3-part privacy workshop in June. If you miss part 1, you’re still more than welcome to attend this session:

What the Internet Knows about Us
Online

There’s a myth our personal data is all anonymous and that the different bits of information we give to different companies remain in separate silos; that a bunch of companies know a little about us, but no one has a complete view. In reality, our data is so granular it can easily be used to identify us, and so widely shared it can easily all be linked together.

In this session, AJ Rice will provide a broad overview of what the internet knows about us, how companies and governments track us, and why they track us. The session will cover what data specific companies and industries collect about us, how they obtain the data with or without our knowledge, and what happens to that data after they collect it.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise geared at helping attendees better understand what data is being collected about them personally.

This is part-1 of a special 3-part privacy workshop in June:

Part 2 Monday 6/21 – Why Privacy Matters

Part 3 Monday 6/28 – What we can do about it
