Alright folks, listen up! We’ve got some exciting news coming out of Manchester, England. Today, Peak, an artificial intelligence company, dropped a brand-new product called Co:Driver. Now, this bad boy is powered by none other than Google Cloud’s Vertex AI and its PaLM 2 large language model. Let me tell you, Co:Driver is a game-changer.
So, what does Co:Driver do? Well, it’s all about providing users with natural language question-answer capabilities and personalized recommendations that are tailored specifically to their business. I’m talking about proactive suggestions that are based on their unique context. It’s like having your own personal AI assistant right at your fingertips.
But hold on, it gets even better. Peak’s AI platform is already being used by major industry players like Nike, Molson Coors, Marshalls, and Eurocell. These guys know what they’re doing. The platform comes equipped with a library of pre-built AI applications that use machine learning and statistical algorithms to forecast trends, patterns, and predictions based on each user’s individual data set. That’s next-level stuff.
Now, here’s where things get interesting. Co:Driver takes it to a whole new level. It takes the output from a user’s existing AI applications on the Peak platform and allows them to ask questions about their business in plain ol’ natural language. You can ask things like how much stock there is in a certain location or which products are the top performers. Co:Driver then goes out and hunts down the answers, as well as any potential efficiencies or anomalies that might catch your eye. And get this, it presents all of this information to you as bite-sized recommendations. You get to choose what steps to take next from a range of AI-generated actions. It’s like having your very own AI expert guiding you along the way.
Now, let’s talk about the impact this baby is going to have on the business world. The combination of Peak’s AI applications and this finely-tuned language model is going to redefine how generative AI is used in business. Up until now, generative AI has mainly been used for rapid content generation, whether it’s code or customer communications. But Co:Driver takes it a step further. It creates an interactive layer between business teams and their data, making it faster and easier to interpret and analyze data outputs. It’s all about highlighting the critical areas that need attention. This is knowledge and power bundled up into one slick package.
I had a chance to speak with Richard Potter, the CEO and co-founder of Peak, and he summed it up perfectly. He said, “For businesses, knowledge is power. Imagine logging on to your computer and seeing a list of recommended actions that are going to maximize your efficiency and help you hit your targets. With Co:Driver, the days of sifting through mountains of data are long gone. Businesses can finally focus on the decisions that are going to move the needle.”
And Richard’s not the only one singing Co:Driver’s praises. Bron Hastings, the VP of Partnerships at Google Cloud, chimed in too. He said, “Businesses have a tremendous opportunity to apply generative AI to many use cases, like exploring data through natural language interactions. Through this partnership, Google Cloud’s Vertex AI will be the driving force behind Peak’s Co:Driver product, bringing the power of Google’s models to users around the world and helping businesses extract more value from their data.”
Now, I know you’re all wondering when you can get your hands on this incredible tool. Well, Co:Driver will be available in private preview in early 2024. So mark your calendars, folks.
That’s a wrap for now, but keep your eyes peeled for more updates on Peak’s AI revolution. You know I’ll be here to break it all down for you. Stay curious, my friends.
