Armilla AI AutoGuard makes generative AI safer for enterprises
Armilla AI launched AutoGuard, an intelligent firewall, to help enterprises deploy generative AI models safely and protect both users and enterprises from potential harms.
The capabilities of generative AI are remarkable, but its shortcomings bring significant risks for enterprises. From eliminating bias and reducing hallucinations to enhancing safety and eliminating privacy issues, AutoGuard is a complete solution for deploying safe and responsible enterprise-grade generative AI solutions.
AutoGuard joins AutoTune as the second product in its AutoAlign generative AI platform. Both use the same AutoAlign framework incorporating auto-feedback fine-tuning and come with a library of off-the-shelf controls, like privacy protection, protection against confidential information leakage, gender assumption, jailbreaking protection and racial bias detection, or can be tailored with specific alignment controls. This means customers can enforce how their AI model behaves, expressed in natural language narratives.
“There’s a growing call within the industry that as generative AI scales, we must provide protections at runtime to ensure these models are performing safely. Based on our own testing, the feedback from our customers and industry experts, enterprises need these guardrails to be compliant with initiatives like Canada’s new voluntary code of conduct for generative AI” says Rahm Hafiz, CTO of Armilla. “Our approach is more powerful than syntax-based guardrails or traditional fine-tuning alone, and is critical to scaling safe, reliable deployments as enterprises bring their models to market.”
Armilla’s AutoGuard solution can generate its own data and can fine-tune a customer’s guardrail using automated feedback based on how the enterprise has asked the AI model to behave. Throughout the process, Armilla’s own AI aligns AutoGuard through a series of steps: understanding the goals for the target model, generating data to capture the bounds of the model’s behavior, iteratively testing, discovering weak spots, and finally hardening its own guardrail model.
The result is a user-friendly platform that makes generative AI safer, trustworthy, and ethical while deployed. AutoGuard is currently being used by a select group of clients, including:
- HR software companies applying generative AI to their HR processes but requiring fairness to be built into their solutions
- Financial institutions looking to develop responsible generative AI solutions
- Consulting firms dealing with confidential and sensitive data
