Share this article

Chatbots and AI-powered solutions have been around for a while now, but it’s only in recent years that they’ve gained real popularity among users and businesses alike, thanks to the great progress of Generative AI. You might remember Eliza, the first-ever chatbot that acted as a psychotherapist, or maybe you’ve used Clippit and you’re left with a sour taste in your mouth. Clippit (a.k.a. Clippy) was an early conversational assistant in MS Office that spoke at you rather than with you. Clippy greeted and treated repeat users as if they had never used the program before, earning widespread hate. It was less of an assistant and more of a bottleneck.

Since then, conversational AI assistants have evolved to being an indispensable part of our lives – personal (think Siri and ChatGPT) and work (think Microsoft copilot, Gaspar AI and more). Thankfully, they’ve also become great helpers, earning widespread love thanks to Generative AI advancements. It’s become imperative to deploy Generative AI in every business: it transforms business operations by enabling them to automate tasks, create new products and services and elevate customer experiences – ultimately leading to a better bottom line.

Gaspar AI is one such Generative AI solution. If you’re unsure about how you can use it and what the platform offers, this blog post is for you. You will discover multiple use cases of Gaspar AI across your company and understand why your employees and support teams will be better-off with our AI helpdesk by their side.

First, what is Gaspar AI?

Gaspar AI is a secure and always available Generative AI helpdesk platform that uses Generative AI for smarter and more efficient employee support. Thanks to advanced language models, it offers dynamic, human-like conversations, seamlessly integrating with various communication channels such as Slack and MS Teams, commonly used apps and IT systems. It empowers employees to act, search, query, and generate content across a multitude of enterprise applications.

What are Gaspar AI’s main components?

Our AI helpdesk blends several advanced technologies to deliver sophisticated automation and support, including:

  • Conversational Interface: Using technologies such as large language models (LLMs), natural language processing (NLP), and natural language understanding (NLU), it is possible to interpret and comprehend free-form requests. Processes including semantic analysis, entity extraction, and intent recognition enable smooth and coherent dialogues.

  • Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG): This involves two processes: retrieving relevant information from an extensive data source and generating a contextually enriched and accurate response which integrates the retrieved information. This step is crucial as it ensures that the output is not just factually accurate but also linguistically coherent and contextually apt.

  • Plugins: They are specialized components that execute planned actions. Each plugin is custom-built for specific tasks and system integrations, such as resetting passwords in Okta or adding accounts in Google Workspace. When combined, they automate processes seamlessly across your existing systems, leveraging your current setup.

  • Generative Summarization: Our AI model consolidates information and produces clear, accurate, human-like responses in natural language and in a digestible format, customized to each employee inquiry.

  • Act across systems: Efficient integration ensures seamless transitions between conversational comprehension, solution strategy, process automation, and summarization.

  • Trust Mechanisms: Our AI platform incorporates features such as citations, employee satisfaction review and human oversight to ensure accountability and safety.
