Summary

TUNiB, a generative AI startup, leveraged FriendliAI's Friendli Dedicated Endpoints to efficiently manage and scale their emotional chatbot service, Dearmate.

Introduction to TUNiB

TUNiB is a generative AI startup specializing in conversational AI chatbots, language models, and NLP APIs. Their chatbots engage users in natural conversations powered by NLP technology. Committed to innovation and advanced technologies, TUNiB delivers tailored solutions swiftly to meet the personalization needs of each customer.

Challenges

As TUNiB's Dearmate chatbot service grew, managing and serving large language models (LLMs) became increasingly challenging. Serving LLMs requires specialized skills in deep learning, distributed systems, and Devops for integrations. Additionally, building and maintaining the infrastructure for serving LLMs at scale is a complex engineering undertaking that demands substantial resources. TUNiB's main challenge was to reduce the engineering efforts and operational costs associated with LLM maintenance for their chatbot service.

FriendliAI's Role
