Pump Powers their Cost-Saving AI Copilot with Arcus

Arcus Team
September 14, 2023


Pump helps their customers save 60% on AWS costs via group buying discounts & AI. In order to help their customers easily understand their AWS cost saving options, they developed an embedded co-pilot chatbot called PumpGPT. This allows their customers to ask AWS specific questions and discuss cost saving options with a chatbot directly on their platform. 


When developing PumpGPT, it became clear that GPT-4 often hallucinated and generated inaccurate information because it lacked a specific real-world understanding of AWS cloud services, their cost structures, and the cloud ecosystem as a whole. While GPT-4 and other modern LLMs are powerful models, they often lack domain-specificity and depth leading them to hallucinate facts and information. Additionally, the original model would go stale as it struggled to keep pace with the ever-evolving landscape of AWS.

To help GPT-4 give more accurate and reliable answers, Pump needed to incorporate important data and context to help the model understand its complex domain-specific ecosystem. This means determining the essential data across both internal and external sources that were necessary for PumpGPT to offer accurate AWS information and relevant cost-saving recommendations – discovering and procuring this data, keeping it up-to-date, integrating it into the model and validating that it performs reliably for their product.

Arcus Solution

Using Arcus’ Prompt Enrichment product, Pump was able to discover and integrate internal data they already had that was valuable to PumpGPT, as well as, discover relevant external data and context that was necessary for their application. Pump used Arcus to seamlessly integrate this additional context into the prompts and augment the model used for PumpGPT, so that it could provide accurate information to their customers and stay up-to-date on the latest AWS information. Through this, the domain-specific data is continuously and directly integrated into the model to be served. By continuously augmenting the model’s data with the right datasets related to Pump’s product, AWS usage patterns, pricing, optimization strategies and much more, PumpGPT gained valuable insights, enabling it to create more accurate, personalized and actionable recommendations as well as prevent hallucinations and stale responses.

The Result

Accurate and Personalized Cost-Saving Recommendations:
With Arcus's Prompt Enrichment offering, PumpGPT showcased a significant improvement in its ability to give accurate and personalized cost saving strategies. By discovering and integrating the right domain specific data, it prevented their model from hallucinating and instead enabled it to provide factual and relevant responses, enabling customers to identify tailored cost-saving opportunities in a way they could understand and act on.
Up-to-date Cost Savings Information:
By leveraging Arcus’s automatic data discovery and continuous data integration, PumpGPT leverages the latest and most relevant domain-specific data available, giving customers continuous up-to-date, factual recommendations and preventing the model from going stale.
Achieving AWS Certification:
The Pump team set a crucial benchmark for success - passing the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam with PumpGPT, an exam that no-out-of-the-box language model could pass. Using Arcus, their model's performance surpassed expectations. The data provided and integrated via Arcus significantly improved the model's understanding of the domain, resulting in a 90% pass rate on the exam.

"Arcus has been a game-changer for us. Before their intervention, PumpGPT's hallucinations were a significant issue. However, after partnering with Arcus, PumpGPT gained access to up-to-date cost-saving insights (providing the latest AWS data, including pricing) and achieved AWS expertise (scoring 90% on the AWS Solution Architect exam). Arcus has transformed our AI's capabilities, and I wholeheartedly recommend working with them!" - Spandana Nakka, CEO of Pump

By harnessing the right data that the model actually needs, PumpGPT experienced significant improvements in its ability to respond with factual, personalized and actionable recommendations for Pump’s customers. 

With Arcus, AI applications are grounded in factual real-world context, enabling them to produce high quality, accurate responses without hallucinating. The seamless integration of Arcus showcases how integrating the right data into your AI application can supercharge your AI efforts to drive significant performance improvements and empower your models to perform their best.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
