Build advanced RAG apps with Generative Feedback Loops

Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) has quickly become a popular use case for large language models (LLMs). In this video, we’ll explore the various use cases of RAG systems and demonstrate how generative feedback loops can enhance performance and take your RAG applications to the next level.

  • RAG Benefits: Improving chatbot interactions and semantic search with Weaviate.

  • Verba Demo: Our open-source RAG app for Airbnb showcases enhanced booking assistance.

  • Generative Feedback Loops (GFL): Boosting efficiency and reducing costs by saving generated responses into the database.

  • Real-World Applications: Implementing self-healing databases in healthcare, legal, e-commerce and more
