When it comes to exploring new technologies with the potential to make substantial and immediate impacts on businesses, Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) stands out. It’s one of many types of AI gaining traction and broader interest as people experience the power of things like ChatGPT.

What is Retrieval-Augmented Generation?

Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) is a type of generative AI model that uses a combination of retrieval and generation to produce text. 

Think of it like an open-book test. In order to answer a question, you use the provided content to write an accurate and comprehensive answer. 

RAG models first retrieve a set of relevant documents from a large collection of text. The documents are then used to inform the generation process, which results in text that is more accurate and informative than text that is generated without retrieval. 

Where ChatGPT searches a broad range of documents for information to help answer questions, RAG can be personalized to a specific set of information relevant to a business. These could be PDFs like training manuals or even case studies. 

Why is RAG exciting?

We’re living in a time when common business pain points like staffing and training can have uncommon solutions. From using generative AI to make marketing videos to creating scalable and affordable Conversational AI solutions, technology is creating new options that could not have existed just a couple of years ago. Sometimes the technology (or combination of technologies) enables solutions that were inconceivable just a couple of months ago. 

RAG is exciting because it has the potential to make the written word experiential, indexable, and immediately available for a variety of different use cases. For example, RAG could be used to:

* Generate personalized training materials for employees

* Provide real-time support to field workers

* Create engaging customer experiences
