Aiven workshop: Preparing and Using Data for AI with LangChain and OpenSearch

In this workshop we’ll work together to generate embeddings for podcast transcriptions and load that data into OpenSearch. Then we’ll search the documents using similarity search and use those results to improve our responses from an LLM (Large Language Model). Along the way we’ll explain the Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) pattern and show how it’s possible to try different LLMs without having to completely rewrite your code.
