Here’s How You Can Use Chat Plugins To Address Shortcomings With ChatGPT & LLMs

LLMs are great at information processing. They are fair to horrible at information retrieval. This is a search problem.

Properly exposing your business logic and data via a web API is one approach to solving this search problem.

Connecting the API to an LLM via a chat plugin is the initial unlock.

That can be taken further when the API is integrated via the LLM’s own API, and the chat interface is bypassed altogether.

This gets very interesting in headless workflows (processes without humans involved).

This isn’t a solution for people looking to run LLMs on private data, but that will be a solved problem in the next generation or two.

In the meantime, creating headless workflows will help businesses scale for pennies on the dollar. That’s amazing.
