May 27, 2024

Vancouver, B.C. – May 27, 2024 – Deetken Insight, a leading provider of strategic advisory services to public and private sector organizations, today announced it has expanded its IT consulting capabilities with the introduction of AI consulting services for companies. The new AI consulting services are being offered in collaboration with Cypress AI, a Los Angeles-based company and pioneer in artificial intelligence technologies.

In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, many organizations face the challenge of identifying business problems for generative AI and maximizing its potential to drive growth and innovation. Failure to adopt AI risks getting left behind, while improper implementation of AI solutions invites biases, privacy breaches, security vulnerabilities, operational disruptions, and legal challenges that can jeopardize trust, efficiency, and long-term success.

To address these challenges and facilitate the seamless integration of AI into business operations, Deetken Insight and Cypress AI have joined forces to provide private and public sector organizations with expert guidance on how to unlock the transformative power of AI.

  • AI Implementation Support: Cypress AI’s experts can develop custom AI solutions tailored to an organization’s needs, leveraging Microsoft tools like Power Apps and Copilot for automation. Cypress AI is proficient in developing specialized databases, retrieval tools and semantic algorithms using state-of-the-art language models, such as Mistral, Meta, OpenAI, Anthropic and Cohere, as well as deployment of on-premise solutions and cloud platforms like Groq, Amazon Bedrock and Microsoft Azure. Cypress AI can oversee the implementation and deployment of AI solutions into an organization’s existing business processes and workflows, ensuring a seamless integration and minimal downtime.
