KPMG in India and Vianai Systems have joined forces to introduce a groundbreaking solution for enterprises in the form of a Conversational Finance AI platform. The collaboration aims to empower finance professionals by equipping them with Vianai’s hila Enterprise, a Human-Centered AI (H+AI) solution.
This innovative offering will harness the capabilities of Vianai’s hila Enterprise to fine-tune and optimize enterprise systems of record. Primarily targeted at finance users, Conversational Finance will enable them to ask questions in natural language and receive immediate responses in the form of text, dashboards, charts, and more. These responses will be sourced from their systems of record, internal documents, public data, and other relevant data sources.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) adoption in enterprises, especially the use of Large Language Models (LLMs), has been limited due to concerns over accuracy and reliability, particularly in finance roles. The risk of LLM hallucinations and inaccuracies has deterred finance teams from fully embracing AI, resulting in a continued reliance on IT, analysts, and other resources to find answers to their queries.
Through their alliance, KPMG in India and Vianai Systems aim to address these challenges and transform the finance function in enterprises. By leveraging their respective expertise and resources, the companies aim to unlock the value of AI for finance professionals.
Sachin Arora, Partner and Head of KPMG Lighthouse (Analytics, AI, and Data) at KPMG in India, emphasized the need for accuracy, privacy, and security in the finance function. He highlighted the potential of LLMs in providing transparent and accurate insights into businesses, enabling finance functions to navigate the dynamic risk and regulatory landscape effectively.
Dr. Sanjay Rajagopalan, Chief Design & Strategy Officer at Vianai Systems, expressed his excitement about delivering the power of AI to finance users. He emphasized the importance of transparency and speed in finance departments, noting that this collaboration with KPMG will make AI accessible to every organization across industries.
The hila Enterprise platform, used by finance CFOs, leverages AI tools, technologies, and techniques, including Vianai’s Zero Hallucination™ technology. This ensures LLMs are safer, more reliable, and contextually relevant for business users. By incorporating large public models, open-source language models, Vianai-built models, and customer-specific models, hila Enterprise allows users to query vast amounts of data in real-time.
Customers can interact with their transactional systems using natural language and receive instant responses generated from both public and private business data. The responses can take various forms, including dashboards, charts, and text.
In conclusion, the strategic alliance between KPMG in India and Vianai Systems aims to revolutionize the finance function in enterprises by leveraging the power of conversational AI. This collaboration will empower finance professionals with a reliable and accurate AI solution, enabling them to gain valuable insights and drive business transformation.
