UiPath introduces new LLMs and Context Grounding to enhance its IDP solution Enterprise automation and AI software company UiPath has announced new Generative AI features for its business automation platform, including a new family of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Context Grounding to augment Generative AI models with business-specific data. UiPath’s new LLMs, DocPATH and CommPATH, provide organizations with LLMs that are extensively trained for their specific tasks, document processing and communications, rather than “general-purpose GenAI models like GPT-4 that struggle to match the performance and accuracy of models specially trained for a specific task”. In addition, UiPath introduced Context Grounding which helps businesses improve the accuracy of Generative AI models by providing prompts a foundation of business context through retrieval augmented generation, making business data LLM-ready. Context Grounding will therefore enhance all UiPath Generative AI experiences in UiPath Autopilots, GenAI Activities, and Document Understanding, its IDP solution.
