Unlocking The Power of Distributed Intelligence

If we’re being honest, all AI research aims to create something that will sufficiently fool us into thinking we’re talking to an intelligent agent.These two words — intelligent and agent — are essential simply because they describe exactly what we seek. First, we are hunting for something that can answer our questions quickly and correctly, and second, we are looking for something with agency, an intelligence that can work with us and pursue its own goals.


To this end, we have posited what we’re calling the Decentralised or Distributed Intelligent Framework. It is a concept that revolutionizes how we engage with AI, leveraging the potential of large language models (LLMs) using hybrid deterministic and non-deterministic autonomous state machines. Let’s explore the current state-of-the-art LLM-based chatbots, their limitations, and how the Distributed Intelligent Framework offers transformative solutions in sales, automotive, and beyond.


The Current State-of-the-Art: LLM-based Chatbots


LLM-based chatbots are at the forefront of interactive systems powered by advanced language models. These chatbots can engage in conversations, answer questions, and provide information. However, they have certain limitations.


LLM-based chatbots exhibit stochastic behavior, resulting in unpredictable and inconsistent responses. They are heavily influenced by the user input and may generate factually incorrect or irrelevant answers, leading to unreliable interactions. This stems from the underlying probabilistic nature of LLMs, making it challenging to control the conversation flow.


Stochastic behavior in the context of AI refers to the incorporation of randomness and probabilistic elements into the decision-making processes and algorithms. Unlike deterministic systems, where the same input always leads to the same output, stochastic systems can produce different outputs even when given the same input due to randomness. In short, modern AI chatbots respond with some randomness, making it extremely difficult to rely on their output for precision-related tasks such as producing API calls or code generation when the output must be 100% accurate and functional with no human in the loop.


Contextual understanding is crucial for meaningful conversations. Chatbots often struggle to retain context across interactions, resulting in disjointed and confusing responses. Maintaining coherent dialogues, especially over extended periods, remains a challenge. By adding a stateful storage system, AI can have a simple working memory, allowing the conversations to retain cohesion over time.


Next, we know that most LLM-based chatbots were originally not designed for specific tasks or domains but created as generalist models that are supposed to handle various tasks. However, the aim of making them able to do everything from summarising texts to providing customer support limits their ability to excel in diverse environments. Further, they often require frequent human intervention, limiting their applicability in dynamic scenarios.


Finally, one of the significant challenges with LLMs is the generation of hallucinations, where they provide made-up or incorrect information. LLMs can also produce toxic or biased responses without proper safeguards, requiring careful moderation.


In short, when we use “normal” LLM-based AI chatbots, we lose much control while simultaneously risking systematic failures in reading input and generating responses.


Introducing the Concept of HumAIns OS — Distributed Intelligent Framework (DIF)


The HumAIns Distributed Intelligent Framework is a novel approach that addresses the above limitations by merging deterministic and non-deterministic behaviors. The system has four major parts:


  • Deterministic Core with Non-Deterministic Flexibility: The framework incorporates a deterministic state machine, ensuring predictable and controlled behavior. This provides a stable foundation for critical functions. However, the framework introduces non-deterministic elements to adapt to changing environments and user needs.


  • Non-Deterministic Autonomous State Machine: The framework incorporates a layer of non-determinism, allowing flexible transitions between states based on inputs and the internal state of LLM agents. This enables dynamic decision-making, adaptability, and contextually appropriate responses.

  • LLM Agents: An LLM agent augments each state within the machine, bringing advanced language understanding and context awareness. These agents process natural language inputs, generate responses, and learn from interactions. By merging deterministic and non-deterministic behaviors, the framework combines reliability with adaptability.


  • Two Levels of Data Models: The global data model saves and shares information between states, providing distributed intelligence that allows each state to follow previous states, maintaining a log of information for what has already been established and is still missing. The in-state data model is the internal memory and required information for each state, enabling state-based agents to evaluate tasks based on what is known within the state and manage their tasks independently from start to finish.




Benefits and Impact


The Distributed Intelligent Framework offers significant advantages over traditional LLM-based chatbots. It enhances reliability by merging deterministic and non-deterministic behaviors, ensuring consistent interactions.


The deterministic core guarantees the predictable operation of critical functions, while the non-deterministic layer allows for flexible, contextually appropriate responses. Improved context awareness is achieved as the framework retains context across interactions, enabling LLM agents to provide relevant and coherent responses by understanding references to previous discussions, remembering user preferences, and adapting behavior accordingly for a more natural and engaging user experience.


The framework’s adaptability and flexibility come from its non-deterministic nature, which allows it to handle uncertainties, exhibit creative problem-solving skills, and provide dynamic solutions. This makes it versatile and responsive to changing environments and user needs. Additionally, incorporating a deterministic core reduces the likelihood of hallucinations and toxic responses, ensuring critical interactions remain factual and safe while maintaining flexibility and reliability through its non-deterministic layer.
