    5 lessons we've learned from implementing knowledge management systems

    Atlas HoverPoint Challenge for Information Visualisation

    Many of us are overwhelmed by information on a daily basis and it is difficult to prioritise things that actually matter to us the most. A number of methods exist for achieving this goal, including information visualisation.

    Calling Azure OpenAI API in stream mode from an SPFx solution

    As mentioned in my previous article, we have integrated ChatGPT in our Atlas product. This was both challenging and fun. The OpenAI API is well documented, so is the Azure OpenAI service. However, one of the things that is not completely documented, is the Stream option. This allows you to call the API and get the response as a stream of data, so you are getting data from the very first second, and you don´t have to wait for the entire response. Note that depending on your request, ChatGPT can take some seconds until you get the response, so from a UX point of view, it is potentially a better experience if you start showing data while the response is fully completed.

    Understand and avoid the risks of shadow AI

    When considering Artificial Intelligence (AI), I think we can all agree that it fosters a wide range of discussions - from the deeply philosophical, through science-fiction to highly technical. It is a somewhat divisive topic, with a huge fanbase and an equally large number of concerned parties. Most do though meet in the middle and agree on a pragmatic stance that - if we are to have AI, we probably cannot avoid it even if we wanted to - then we need to wrap some governance or protective measures and controls around it. 

    Aside from all that however, one aspect that has generally been overlooked is the rise of that I would call "Shadow AI" in organisations.
