Multimodal Retrieval Augmented GenerationGenerative AI | Beginner-Intermediate
Retrieval augmented generation (RAG) soon became established as the reference architecture whenever we want to inject custom knowledge into our LLM-powered applications. Insofar, RAG has been applied to text data. Nevertheless, with the launch of GPT-4-turbo vision, we can extend the same concept also data different from texts, such as images. In this workshop, we are going to cover the architecture behind a typical RAG application and how to incorporate images within this architecture, leveraging GPT-4-turbo with vision. To do so, we will see a practical implementation with Python and LangChain, consuming the model API from Azure OpenAI service.
