Announcing AnyQuest PyAQ

Today, December 6, 2023, we announce the availability of AnyQuest PyAQ, an open-source low-code platform for cognitive applications.

Cognitive applications improve knowledge worker productivity by integrating generative AI with enterprise solutions for customer relationship management, marketing automation, enterprise resource planning, supply chain management, and many others.

Unlike interactive GPT chatbots and copilots, cognitive applications can run entirely unattended. They do not sacrifice precision for speed and can run longer to process more data, use different types of larger AI models, or launch long-running jobs via connected enterprise applications and robotic systems.

AnyQuest PyAQ users define cognitive applications visually as flow diagrams or declaratively as statements in a low-code scripting language. The declarative nature of cognitive applications enables automatic optimization, massive parallelism, hardware acceleration, robust security, and control.

By releasing AnyQuest PyAQ as open source, we hope to stimulate innovation in the broader generative AI community. Until now, the focus of the AI community has been on building bigger and better models. But models do not deliver value. Value is delivered by applications enabled by these models, and on the application front, we have chatbots, and chatbots to create more chatbots. To see the limits, just imagine controlling a game character or piloting a plane via a chatbot.

Here are just some ideas to explore with AnyQuest PyAQ:

  • Cognitive applications
    • Knowledge management
    • Question answering
    • Hyper personalization
    • Intelligent automation

Can GPT-4 Outsmart Wall Street Stock Pickers?

I provided a large language model with last year's market outlook reports and asked it to generate aggressive growth portfolios. Next, I backtested the portfolios against historical market data. Here are the results.

Market Segmentation and Lead Enrichment with LLMs

Market segmentation is an essential part of any go-to-market strategy. Segmenting a large list of prospects can be very challenging. Fortunately, it is precisely the kind of work that large language models excel at, but it does take a few tricks.

AI Takers vs. Shapers: Harnessing Generative AI for Competitive Edge

With AI assistants popping up in every tool and service, it's easy to be an AI taker. However, using generally available tools does not build a lasting competitive advantage. One must learn to shape AI to make a difference.
