Picture

Large Language Models (LLMs), above all ChatGPT, have taken all areas of computer science by storm over the past year. As they are trained on a broad database, LLMs are fundamentally application-agnostic. Despite their extensive knowledge, however, they have gaps, particularly in highly specialised applications, which in the worst case can only appear to be compensated for by hallucinations. To reduce this risk, "Retrieval Augmented Generation" (RAG) has been established.
