OpenAI for Business: Take your business to the next level with generative AI
Over the last few months, we have witnessed what we could call the “boom” and global expansion of generative AI. The significant advances in this technology, as well as the novelties of OpenAI, ChatGPT, and its countless applications, are making it the most talked-about term of the moment.
“Managers need to be informed about the state of the art of generative AI and adopt a proactive mindset to integrate the technology into their business. We are facing a technological revolution that, used with a strategic vision, can generate opportunities for optimization, cost reduction, new business opportunities, and better decision-making,” says Quique Martinez, CEO of Plain Concepts.
But how can companies take advantage of all this? What applications can it have to improve my business? How can I enhance its capabilities in my company? We answer these questions, and more so that you can learn first-hand about the most important use cases and how launching yourself into the generative artificial intelligence ecosystem will allow you to leap to the next level thanks to our Azure OpenAI Framework.
What is Generative AI?
Generative AI is so-called because it can create something that does not exist. Unlike discriminative AI, it is able to answer questions or create images from simple instructions.
Although it may seem like a new concept, we could say that it first appeared in 1966 with the launch of Eliza, a chatbot that pretended to be a therapist you could talk to. It was a revolution at the time, but the enormous advances of the last few years have meant that the evolution of generative AI is nothing like that first contact.
This AI uses Machine Learning to process a large amount of image and text data (primarily online). Once processed, it can generate text by predicting which word makes the most sense that can follow the previous ones it has created.
Some of the capabilities of generative AI are idea extraction, topic research, text summarisation, creative ideation, code generation, semantic search, virtual assistants, language translation, question answering, image generation, and more.
“AI has proven to be an invaluable tool when applied to the business world, among others. One of the main advantages is its ability to save both time and resources. Companies can quickly generate personalized and engaging content, which previously required significant human effort, thereby enhancing collaboration and idea generation and driving innovation and transformation at all levels of the organization. With proper implementation and monitoring, AI becomes a powerful ally that drives sustainable business growth and success in an increasingly digitized world,” Sara San Luis, Engineering Manager Development.
LLM in Depth
ChatGPT is a specific product based on deep learning called a large linguistic model (LLM).
A linguistic model is a probability distribution over sequences of words. It is, therefore, a statistical model trained on a massive amount of text data to predict the probability of a sequence of words in a specific language. It works by assigning a probability to the whole line of words.
An LLM is a specific deep learning algorithm that can recognize, summarise, translate, predict, and generate human-like text and other content, such as images and audio, based on knowledge of large datasets.
An LLM is a neural network model architecture based on so-called transformative technologies. They go through huge volumes of text, identifying how words relate to each other and building a model that allows them to reproduce similar texts.
When asked a question, LLMs do not “search” for an answer but produce a string of words predicting which word would best follow the previous one, given the broader context of the words preceding it. In other words, they give a “common sense” answer to a question.
These models bring together many functions in a single product. They can use the same model for a variety of tasks, as well as offering greater interpretability when representing or performing a task.
“The creative power of generative AI has been revolutionizing the industry since the end of last year. The generation of text, images, and even the creation of 3D designs will enable industrial companies to improve efficiency in the design and manufacture of their products. At Plain Concepts, we help our customers discover use cases where this technology can improve their performance and productivity”, Rodrigo Cabello, Research Engineer.
To implement the use of LLMs in your business, there are several ways to approach it, as there is no one-size-fits-all approach suitable for all businesses. That is why it is so important to identify the most appropriate strategy and use cases based on business needs. Here is where Plain Concepts can help you.
What can Azure OpenAI offer you? | Use Cases
Azure OpenAI runs on Azure’s global infrastructure to meet production needs such as business-critical security, compliance, and regional availability.
With role-based authentication and private network connectivity, it enables you to deploy more securely and reliably.
“Companies should not close their eyes to generative AI. Their employees see the potential; they use it, but without the security, governance, and oversight, which puts companies’ security, data, and reputation at risk. Businesses should consider generative AI because it can improve creativity, innovation, efficiency, and data-driven decision-making. By adopting this technology, companies can gain a competitive advantage by delivering personalized content, accelerating product development, and optimizing operations”. Joan Sintes, Director of International Sales.
As mentioned above, the possibilities offered by this service are endless, so we have compiled the most relevant use cases:
Document Processing Manager
Document management can be a time-consuming and complex task for businesses. With the help of the OpenAI API, we can provide companies with a document management system to streamline their processes and improve efficiency.
The solution would involve creating a platform that classifies and extracts clauses, summarises and highlights key points in long texts, automatic detection and extraction of key entities to streamline and objectify the process, automatic text composition, increasing semantic search capabilities to find the best information, and so on.
The impact of such a solution would result in speeding up tedious documentation work, reducing human error, improving performance, reducing knowledge discovery time, creating efficient responses…
