Kinetica Redefines Real-Time Analytics with Native LLM Integration

Kinetica | September 22, 2023

Kinetica, a renowned speed layer for generative AI and real-time analytics, has recently unveiled a native Large Language Model (LLM) integrated with Kinetica's innovative architecture. This empowers users to perform ad-hoc data analysis on real-time, structured data with the ease of natural language, all without the need for external API calls and without data ever leaving the secure confines of the customer's environment. This significant milestone follows Kinetica's prior innovation as the first analytic database to integrate with OpenAI. Amid the LLM fervor, enterprises and government agencies are actively seeking inventive ways to automate various business functions while safeguarding sensitive information that could be exposed through fine-tuning or prompt augmentation. Public LLMs, exemplified by OpenAI's GPT 3.5, raise valid concerns regarding privacy and security. These concerns are effectively mitigated through native offerings, seamlessly integrated into the Kinetica deployment, and securely nestled within the customer's network perimeter. Beyond its superior security features, Kinetica's native LLM is finely tuned to the syntax and industry-specific data definitions, spanning domains such as telecommunications, automotive, financial services, logistics, and more. This tailored approach ensures the generation of more reliable and precise SQL queries. Notably, this capability extends beyond conventional SQL, enabling efficient handling of intricate tasks essential for enhanced decision-making capabilities, particularly for time-series, graph, and spatial inquiries. Kinetica's approach to fine-tuning places emphasis on optimizing SQL generation to deliver consistent and accurate results, in stark contrast to more conventional methods that prioritize creativity but yield diverse and unpredictable responses. This steadfast commitment to reliable SQL query outcomes offers businesses and users the peace of mind they deserve. Illustrating the practical impact of this innovation, the US Air Force has been collaborating closely with Kinetica to leverage advanced analytics on sensor data, enabling swift identification and response to potential threats. This partnership contributes significantly to the safety and security of the national airspace system. The US Air Force now employs Kinetica's embedded LLM to detect airspace threats and anomalies using natural language. Kinetica's database excels in converting natural language queries into SQL, delivering responses in mere seconds, even when faced with complex or unfamiliar questions. Furthermore, Kinetica seamlessly combines various analytics modes, including time series, spatial, graph, and machine learning, thereby expanding the range of queries it can effectively address. What truly enables Kinetica to excel in conversational query processing is its ingenious use of native vectorization. In a vectorized query engine, data is organized into fixed-size blocks called vectors, enabling parallel query operations on these vectors. This stands in contrast to traditional approaches that process individual data elements sequentially. The result is significantly accelerated query execution, all within a smaller compute footprint. This remarkable speed is made possible by the utilization of GPUs and the latest CPU advancements, which enable simultaneous calculations on multiple data elements, thereby greatly enhancing the processing speed of computation-intensive tasks across multiple cores or threads. About Kinetica Kinetica is a pioneering company at the forefront of real-time analytics and is the creator of the groundbreaking real-time analytical database specially designed for sensor and machine data. The company offers native vectorized analytics capabilities in the fields of generative AI, spatial analysis, time-series modeling, and graph processing.
