Beyond the Hype: Providing Computational Superpowers for Enterprise AI

Sure, it was laughable when X’s AI chatbot Grok accused NBA star Klay Thompson of a vandalism spree after users described him as “shooting bricks” during a recent game, but it was no joke when iTutorGroup paid $365,000 to job applicants rejected by its AI in a first-of-its-kind bias case. On a larger scale, multiple healthcare companies—including UnitedHealth Group, Cigna Healthcare and Humana—face class-action lawsuits based on their AI algorithms that are alleged to have improperly denied hundreds of thousand of patient claims.

So, while AI—driven by large language models (LLMs) has emerged as a groundbreaking innovation for streamlining workflows, its current limitations are becoming more apparent, including inaccurate responses and weaknesses in logical and mathematical reasoning.

To address these challenges, Wolfram Research has developed a suite of tools and technologies to enhance the capabilities of LLMs. Wolfram’s technology stack, including the Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud (EPC) and Wolfram|Alpha, increases the productivity of AI applications in multiple enterprise environments. By leveraging Wolfram’s extensive experience in computational intelligence and data curation, organizations can overcome LLM limitations to achieve greater accuracy and efficiency in AI-driven workflows.

At the same time, Wolfram Consulting Group is not confined to one specific LLM. Instead, we can enhance the capabilities of any sophisticated LLM that utilizes tools and writes computer code, including OpenAI’s GPT-4 (where Wolfram GPT is now available), Anthropic’s Claude 3 and Google’s Gemini Pro. We can also incorporate these tools in a privately hosted LLM within your infrastructure or via public LLM services.

Wolfram’s Integrated Technology Stack

Wolfram has a well-developed tech stack available to modern LLMs: data science tools, machine learning algorithms and visualizations. It also allows the LLM to write code to access your various data sources and store intermediate results in cloud memory, without consuming LLM context-window bandwidth. The Wolfram Language evaluation engine provides correct and deterministic results in complex computational areas where an unassisted LLM would tend to hallucinate.

When your organization is equipped with the Wolfram technology stack for tool-assisted AIs, the productivity of your existing experts is enhanced with methods that support exploratory data analysis, machine learning, data science, instant reporting and more:

  • The LLM can interpret expert user instructions to generate Wolfram code and tool requests performing a wide variety of computational tasks, with instant feedback and expert verification of the intermediate results.
  • Custom tools for accessing corporate/proprietary structured and unstructured data, models and digital twins, and business logic feed problems to the Wolfram Language algorithms implementing your analytic workflows.
  • Working sessions create a documented workflow of thought processes, prompts, tool use and code that can be reused on future problems or reviewed for audit purposes.

Designed for system integration flexibility, use the platform as a fully integrated system or as a component in an existing one. In the full-system integration, the Wolfram tech stack seamlessly manages all communications between the LLM and other system components. Alternatively, use it as a set of callable tools integrated into your existing LLM stack as our modular and extensible design readily adapts to your changing needs. Also access the integrated Wolfram tech stack through a variety of user interfaces, including a traditional chat experience, a custom Wolfram Chat Notebook, REST APIs and other web-deployed custom user interfaces.

Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud (EPC)

Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud

Wolfram’s EPC serves as a private, centralized hub for accessing Wolfram’s collection of LLM tools and works in commercial cloud environments such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud. For organizations preferring in-house solutions, EPC can also operate on dedicated hardware within your data center.

Once deployed, EPC can connect to various structured and unstructured data sources. These include SQL databases, graph databases, vector databases and even expansive data lakes. Applications deployed on EPC are accessible via instant web service APIs or through web-deployed user interfaces, including Chat Notebooks. As Wolfram continues to innovate, the capabilities of EPC also grow.

Wolfram|Alpha Infrastructure

Wolfram|Alpha can also be a valuable asset for your suite of tools. With a vast database of curated data across diverse realms of human knowledge, Wolfram|Alpha can augment your existing resources.

Top-tier intelligent assistants, websites, knowledge-based apps and various partners have trusted Wolfram|Alpha APIs for over a decade. These APIs have answered billions of queries across hundreds of knowledge domains. Designed for use by LLMs, Wolfram|Alpha’s public LLM-specific API endpoint is tailored to enable smooth communication and data consumption.

If your LLM platform requires a customized version of Wolfram|Alpha, our sales and engineering teams will work with you to optimize your access to its extensive capabilities. This ensures that you have the right setup to harness the full potential of Wolfram|Alpha in your specific context.

Preparing Knowledge for Computation

While many platforms give an LLM access to data retrieval tools, what sets Wolfram apart is extensive experience in preparing knowledge for computation. For over a decade, Wolfram has provided knowledge curation services and custom versions of Wolfram|Alpha to diverse industries and government institutions with sophisticated data curation workflows and exposed ontologies and schemas to AI systems. Direct access to vast amounts of data alone is not enough; an LLM requires context for data and an understanding of the user’s intent.

Corporate cloud environment

Wolfram consultants can establish workflows and services to equip your team with tools for programmatic data curation through an LLM. This process involves creating a list of questions and identifying the subjects or entities to which these questions apply. The LLM, with the aid of the appropriate retrieval tools, then finds the answers and cites its sources. These workflows alleviate the workload of extensive curation tasks, and the enhanced curation capabilities then operate within the EPC infrastructure.

At the same time, you’ll retain ownership of any intellectual property created for your funded project, including custom plugins or tools Wolfram develops, ensuring you have full control over the solutions created for your organization.

Enterprise AI the Wolfram Way

When you decide you need a custom LLM solution, let Wolfram Consulting Group build one tailored to your specific needs. From developing runtime environments that help your teams integrate Wolfram technology into existing platforms to creating application architecture, preparing data for computation and performing modeling and digital twin implementation, Wolfram has the unique experience across all areas of computation for the right balance of approaches to achieve optimal results.

By working with Wolfram, you get the best people and the best tools to keep up with developments in the rapidly changing AI landscape. The result? You will capture the full potential of the new generation of LLMs.
