Designing AI Architectures with Domain-Driven Design: A Use Case-Centric Approach


In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, designing architectures that effectively align with business objectives and deliver lasting value remains a critical challenge. This talk presents a fresh perspective on tackling this challenge by leveraging the power of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the context of AI system development.

Through a use case-centric approach, we will explore how DDD principles can be applied to create modular, scalable, and maintainable AI architectures. We will delve into key concepts such as bounded contexts, microservices, and tactical patterns, and demonstrate their practical application in designing AI systems.

Attendees will learn how techniques like Supervised Fine-Tuning (SFT), Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG), and AI Agents can be seamlessly integrated into a DDD-based architecture to enhance performance and context-awareness. Real-world case studies will showcase the successful implementation of these approaches and provide valuable insights into overcoming common challenges.

Throughout the talk, we will emphasize the importance of collaboration between domain experts, architects, and developers in creating AI systems that are closely aligned with business goals. We will also discuss future trends and opportunities in AI architecture design, inspiring attendees to push the boundaries of what is possible.

Whether you are an experienced data practitioner or just starting your AI journey, this talk will equip you with a practical framework for designing AI architectures that deliver tangible business value. Join us as we explore the intersection of DDD and AI, and discover how this powerful combination can transform the way we build intelligent systems.
