Researchers from Microsoft and Columbia Develop LLM-AUGMENTER: An AI System That Enhances Black-Box LLM Using Plug-and-Play Modules.

Attention all natural language generation enthusiasts! Are you tired of your AI model generating irrelevant and often nonsensical responses? Are you frustrated with the limitations of pre-existing large language models (LLMs)? Well, look no further because LLM-Augmenter is here to revolutionize the game. In this blog post, we will dive into this groundbreaking technology and explore how it can advance mission-critical tasks through the incorporation of external knowledge.

Augmenting Black-Box LLMs in Mission-Critical Applications

LLMs are widely recognized for their ability to generate natural language texts. However, they often fall short when it comes to encoding knowledge, leading to misinformation and confusion. LLM-Augmenter fundamentally challenges these shortcomings and aims to improve the general quality of AI-generated information.

The LLM-Augmenter model is designed to integrate task-specific databases into a black-box LLM through the use of plug-and-play modules. By doing this, it improves the quality of the model’s responses, making them more factual and reliable. Additionally, the model includes iterative prompt revision that utilizes feedback generated by utility functions to optimize the factuality score of LLM-generated responses.

The Augmentation Process

The LLM-Augmenter process consists of three key steps. First, it retrieves evidence from external knowledge sources, such as web searches or task-specific databases, when given a user query. Second, it consolidates evidence to generate a response rooted in external knowledge. Lastly, it checks the generated response using feedback messages, which iterate the ChatGPT query until the model’s output meets verification requirements.

Validation and Performance

The LLM-Augmenter model was tested on dialog tasks, demonstrating its ability to significantly reduce the problem of hallucinations. Additionally, it was evaluated using commonly used metrics such as Knowledge F1 and BLEU-4.
