Powering AI for Adaptive Mobile and IoT Apps

AI is driving the next wave of tech innovation, and data is its fuel. This makes data processing a critical component of your AI implementations, but it can be hard to get right, especially in the distributed and disconnected environments common to mobile and IoT applications. In this session we’ll explore how a mobile database platform with built-in data sync and support for vector search and AI at the edge can accelerate the development of AI-powered mobile apps that are always fast and always on, even without the internet.

Through conversation, live demos, and real-world use cases, we’ll show you how the Couchbase Mobile database platform makes mobile apps:

  • Run faster with data located closer to the point of interaction
  • More reliable by eliminating dependencies on the internet
  • More secure because sensitive data never leaves the edge
  • More engaging with AI-powered personalization

Bringing the “Smart City” to Life With Tondo and Couchbase

AI and IoT are fast becoming must-haves for modern applications, but both technologies generate and use enormous amounts of data that can quickly overwhelm your database. Tondo, a global leader in smart lighting and smart networking infrastructure, joins this webcast to share how they use NoSQL to handle large volumes of IoT and AI data with high scalability and flexibility. You’ll learn how the Tondo Smart IoT platform enables cities to use AI to cut street and area lighting costs by over 60% and slash sensor and device operating costs by up to 80%. We’ll discuss:

  • How Tondo Smart processes vast amounts of telemetry data in real time
  • How Tondo monitors, controls, and predicts issues for public lighting systems
  • The challenges of building a scalable solution with hundreds of thousands of IoT devices
  • How Tondo uses Couchbase’s SQL support and rich SDKs to accelerate development

Coding With AI Vector Search and RAG

If you’re a developer, you can use powerful new AI technologies right now to address common challenges and enhance the capabilities of your applications. In this conversational webcast, we’ll offer practical tips on how to use AI with vector search and vector embedding to make searches more meaningful, intuitive, and tailored to user needs. You’ll learn how to integrate AI with LangChain and Couchbase vector search to solve real-world problems and simplify complex coding tasks. We’ll cover:

  • Vector search and vector embeddings – Why it’s important to integrate them into your database for improved search results
  • LangChain for advanced data interactions – How to get richer data interactions and enhanced application responses
  • Retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) – How to minimize LLM hallucinations by combining vector search with LangChain
  • Hybrid search – How to improve efficiency and accuracy by combining vectors with SQL and full-text search in a single query

Let’s Talk About AI

Consumers love having the power of AI at their fingertips, and early successes like ChatGPT have raised their expectations for every online interaction. Are your apps ready to deliver? In this webcast, Jeff Morris and Rahul Pradhan discuss how enterprises are quickly pivoting to integrate AI technologies like generative AI and retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) into nearly all their applications.

We’ll explain how our latest Couchbase releases help you transform your apps for AI, including how vector search enables you to:

  • Combine vector, full-text, range, and geospatial search capabilities in a single SQL query
  • Use RAG to make AI-powered applications more accurate, safer, and up to date
  • Reduce response latency by supporting all search patterns within a single index

Real-World JSON Data Modeling

In theory, data modeling for JSON is all about trade-offs. But what’s it like in reality? In this webcast, we’ll find out by using JSON to build a clone of the blogging platform To create our clone, we’ll use RealWorld, also known as “the mother of all demo apps.” For the backend, we’ll use Couchbase Capella™ DBaaS, our cloud database platform designed to power modern adaptive apps.

We’ll explore different solutions to achieve the best results for specific functionalities for users, articles, and comments. And for each choice we make, we’ll discuss why we made it and the impact on queryability. You’ll learn how the features offered by a database drive JSON data modeling trade-offs, and how Capella’s various query services enable developers to more easily build modern adaptive applications.

JSON Data Modeling in Document Databases

Are you interested in using a JSON document database, but feeling a little overwhelmed by some of the complexities? In this webcast, we’ll make JSON feel more familiar by using comparisons to traditional RDBMS modeling to guide you through the basics of data modeling with JSON. We’ll cover:

  • The right scenarios for using a document database and the impact on application code
  • Adaptive applications and how they benefit from the flexibility of document databases
  • How to use LLMs like Capella iQ to enhance database interactions and insights

We’ll primarily use the Couchbase Capella™ document database to illustrate our lessons, but the principles and techniques we discuss will be applicable to any JSON document store. You can expect to walk away with a clearer understanding of document databases and the innovative ways they can be used for modern adaptive applications.

Quantic Boosts Developer Productivity and Cuts Query Times by 50%

Developers often have formidable workloads and not enough time to get everything done, so taking database management off their plate can make a huge difference. In this webcast, you’ll learn how Quantic uses Couchbase Capella™ DBaaS to minimize database management tasks so their development team can focus on enhancing software products instead. Quantic’s founder will explain how the company uses Capella to power the cloud-based point of sale system used by their small and medium-size business customers. And we’ll discuss how Capella makes it easier for Quantic to keep pace with a rapidly growing number of customers, products, and features. You’ll learn how:

  • Quantic increased developer productivity and achieved 50% faster querying
