Introducing Hasper: LLM-powered Engine For Advanced Analytics

Over the last year, we have evolved from an MLops platform company that gave enterprises the ability to build and deploy machine learning for analytics teams, to an applied AI data products platform. Throughout this journey, our mission has remained consistent: to help organizations make better decisions using data. We’ve reached a pivotal moment in that journey today. Generative AI, and in particular, large language models (LLMs) will change the future of work, but there’s a gap between its potential and its actual application within enterprises.

This is a moment when companies that can actually put generative AI to work to build better decision workflows and automate decision-making will surge ahead. On that note, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Hasper, a full-stack LLM data products engine, that enables businesses to rapidly build and productionize customized data products to drive better decisions and business outcomes at the enterprise.

  • Effectively utilizing LLMs for analytics use cases requires a well-designed system encompassing architecture, system design, orchestration, and multimodal data science techniques (like ML and NLP).
  • Integrating checks for safety, privacy, and compliance with legal requirements and organizational data security and privacy policies are essential.
  • Hasper addresses enterprise use cases using LLMs with the appropriate degree of data privacy, security, accuracy, and reliability.
  • Hasper protects not just the data and the solution, but also the IP of the enterprise.

Hasper fulfills the need for a robust solutioning framework that accelerates the delivery of LLM-powered analytics data products for enterprises. It addresses the complexities and challenges involved in productionizing a solution around LLMs by providing a ready-to-use framework with out-of-the-box modules that significantly reduce time-to-value and future-proof organizations’ data products.By using Hasper, organizations can focus on delivering value to their businesses without having to build all the supporting infrastructure from scratch.

Behind the Scenes: Exploring the Technology Behind the Intelligent Engine

At the core of Hasper Engine are task blades, which consist of modules specifically designed for different types of tasks, such as natural language question-answering and summarization. These task blades form blade clusters, with each cluster dedicated to a specific function within an organization. This modular approach simplifies Hasper’s operations and management by handling function-level variations in policies and permissions.

The Administrator oversees overall system access and control requirements, while the Orchestrator ensures smooth operation by managing configuration and deployment. The Optimizer, in conjunction with the Orchestrator, handles aspects such as availability, reliability, scalability, cost optimization, and overall efficiency of the Hasper Engine.

A task blade comprises various modules, including

LLM Agent: This module wraps around LLM APIs and executes task-specific workflows. It combines grounding, sanitization, prompting techniques, vectorization, optimization, and post-processing to continuously enhance safety, relevance, accuracy, and user experience.
