In 2023, RAG has become one of the most used technique in the domain of Large Language Models. In fact, one can assume that no LLM powered application doesn’t use RAG in one way or the other. Here are 6 use cases that RAG forms a pivotal part of

Document Question Answering Systems using Retrieval Augmented Generation
By providing access to proprietary enterprise document to an LLM, the responses are limited to what is provided within them. A retriever can search for the most relevant documents and provide the information to the LLM. Check out this blog for an example —
LLMs can be customised to product/service manuals, domain knowledge, guidelines, etc. using RAG. The agent can also route users to more specialised agents depending on their query. SearchUnify has an LLM+RAG powered conversational agent for their users.
Real-time Event Commentary
Imagine an event like a sports or a new event. A retriever can connect to real-time updates/data via APIs and pass this information to the LLM to create a virtual commentator. These can further be augmented with Text To Speech models.IBM leveraged the technology for commentary during the 2023 US Open
The widest use of LLMs has probably been in content generation. Using RAG, the generation can be personalised to readers, incorporate real-time trends and be contextually appropriate. Yarnit is an AI based content marketing platform that uses RAG for multiple tasks.
Recommendation engines have been a game changes in the digital economy. LLMs are capable of powering the next evolution in content recommendations. Check out Aman’s blog on the utility of LLMs in recommendation systems.
Virtual personal assistants like Siri, Alexa and others are in plans to use LLMs to enhance the experience. Coupled with more context on user behaviour, these assistants can become highly personalised.
