Kantega uses AI to help customers build business critical software systems

Kantega explores how AI solutions based on customers’ own data can give businesses lasting competitive edges. The Norwegian IT consulting company is using AI language models like GPT-4 to develop virtual assistants and recently developed a new data and analytics platform for Enova.

How do you use AI in the company?

We use AI in many ways in the software we develop, depending on our customers’ needs. Examples include training and using machine learning models to predict default on bank loans and using computer vision to identify objects in a video stream.

Currently we are involved in several projects where large language models (e.g. GPT-4) are combined with proprietary knowledge bases to create value-added services such as virtual assistants.

Together with our customers we explore how AI-enabled solutions based on proprietary data can provide lasting competitive advantages for their business. We offer AI courses for business executives and managers, AI feasibility studies, and AI pilot projects, that help businesses and organisations to understand their potential and where they can elevate using AI and data.

Tell about a recent success story from your company or an exciting project you are working on.

In one of our projects, which started a year ago, we help Enova becoming a more data driven organization. Norway has set itself ambitious climate targets, and Enova contribute through support schemes and advice on which measures have the greatest effect. Part of the contribution from Kantega has been to establish a new data- and analysis platform and new ways of working with analytical data to make Enova succeed in their mission, including the adoption of predictive and generative AI.

What goals does the company have for the future?

We believe that our customers need to become more data driven in the future, and we aim to help them succeed in their digital transformation. Part of the success will be to combine business understanding, deep technical skills, and a cross functional approach where people with different competences work together.
