Connect Your Data to LLMs with RAG

When considering the development of Generative AI applications, our priority is to prepare the data in a way that allows the application to deliver the desired outcomes. To facilitate this, we emphasize the importance of a concept called Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG). Implementing an effective data-enriched RAG process significantly enhances the likelihood of success for your AI application.
This addresses several key factors contributing to the failure of General AI, particularly the erosion of confidence caused by the low accuracy of responses, often a result of the quality of data input. Your AI is only as good as your data.
