AI deep dive: A technical guide to the foundations of search and generative AI

This technical whitepaper takes you deep into the inner workings of generative AI and vector databases. It provides a detailed look at the technical foundations of vector embeddings, generative AI architecture, and how retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) works to provide LLMs with the critical domain-specific knowledge they need.
