Transforming Document Curation: LMs and vector databases at scale

Submitted Jun 30, 2023


Auquan is an AI startup that serves institutional investors and investment managers with curated news and documents to help them make better investment decisions.

In this presentation, I will discuss our approach for using a vector database and a tuned language model to curate news items at scale.

I will walk through the process and pitfalls for using these technologies in production, and provide best practices for achieving high performance. Specifically, I will discuss the metrics that we used for selecting a vector database and tune our language model.
