Seminário da Pós: “On the Construction of Database Interfaces based on Large Language Models”
Resumo do Seminário: This talk argues that Large Language Models (LLMs) can be profitably used to construct natural language database interfaces (NLIDBs), including conversational interfaces. Such interfaces will be simply called LLM-based NLIDBs. It discusses three problems: how to use an LLM to create an NLIDB; how to fine-tune an LLM to follow instructions over a particular database; and how to simplify the construction of LLM-based NLIDBs. The paper covers the first two problems with the help of examples based on two well-known LLM families, GPT and LLaMA, developed by OpenAI and Meta, respectively. Likewise, it discusses the third problem with the help of examples based on two frameworks, LangChain and LlamaIndex.
