AI-guided actions

Choose exactly when to harness the power of LLMs by providing your assistant with specific phrases that will automatically trigger an AI-driven response for a given use case, such as providing recommendations on products and services, explaining key concepts, and more.

Base LLM

Use IBM’s Granite model series or choose from a curated list of other LLMs to power your assistant’s generative AI capabilities adding specific prompt instructions to produce the best generative responses or refine LLM output for added flexibility all in a no-code interface.
