In today's fast-paced work environment, information overload can make it challenging to find the information you need quickly. Research shows that knowledge workers spend 1 to 3 hours per day looking for information and documents. A big chunk of that time is spent understanding their organization's internal knowledge base. This process can be time-consuming, frustrating, and inefficient. That's why I created mindmate, an AI-powered assistant that helps users make sense of their company's internal knowledge base. With mindmate, users can easily search their company's internal knowledge base and receive answers to their questions in plain English using a simple chatbot interface. I built a proof of concept using GitLab's employee handbook during the hackathon. I created a simple yet powerful tool that allows users to ask questions and receive natural language answers by processing the handbook's 3,000 pages, creating embeddings with Cohere, storing them with Qdrant, and leveraging Cohere's text generation capabilities. mindmate is easy to use and provides quick access to information related to a variety of topics, including company policies, benefits, and more. By tailoring search results to each user's specific needs, mindmate helps knowledge workers save time and stay focused on their core responsibilities.
"Great idea and implementation, already tried demo i like it."

"Awesome use case, Dylan! Connecting with internal company data will be really beneficial to quickly find the info you need!"
"Great job guys.I think this project is an effective solution to address the issue of information overload and it can help knowledge workers save time and effort. You have made excellent use of Cohere's text generation abilities and Qdrant's storage technology. However, the audio quality of the presentation could be improved. I also appreciate the easy-to-use chatbot interface in the demo and the fact that I can generate prompts"

"Nice implementation of reference links, and clean user interface."
"That's a really cool app that literally any company could benefit from. Companies own lots of data spread across different systems, and the ability to search through all of them with the answers generated by AI model is cool!"
"Nice idea!! Building on the semantic search + embeddings concept is cool for a company's knowledge base."
