GraphRAG is an open source research project out of Microsoft for creating knowledge graphs from datasets that can be used in retrieval-augmented generation (RAG). RAG is an approach in which data is fed into an LLM to give more accurate responses. For instance, a company might use RAG to be able to use its own private data in a generative AI app so that employees can get responses specific to their company’s own data, such as HR policies, sales data, etc.  How GraphRAG works is that the LLM creates the knowledge graph by processing the private dataset and creating references to entities a ..read more

Yesterday Microsoft announced that it was giving up its observer board seat at OpenAI, a company it has invested over $10 billion in and whose AI models are heavily integrated across the Microsoft product line. Microsoft’s board seat was a nonvoting seat, meaning they were only on it to observe what the board was doing. The seat was secured back in November 2023 when OpenAI went through an upheaval following the previous board’s sudden firing of CEO Sam Altman and the subsequent replacement of the entire board.  In a letter to OpenAI, Microsoft reasoned that it no longer needed the s ..read more

Developers today are responsible for a lot more than the developers of 10 years ago were. Not only do they write code, but they’re managing quality, security, incidents, observability, infrastructure, and more. This has led to a lot of tool sprawl in development environments. Developers need an IDE to write the code, an incident management platform to fix issues, a platform for managing the infrastructure they are deploying to, an observability platform to track performance, and more. And sometimes, developers are reliant on people in other areas of the business to tackle some of those respons ..read more

by SD Times
5d ago
Many development teams are beginning to experiment with how they can use AI to benefit their efficiency, but in order to have a successful implementation, they need to have ways to assess that their investment in AI is actually providing value proportional to that investment.  A recent Gartner survey from May of this year said that 49% of respondents claimed the primary obstacle to AI adoption is the difficulty in estimating and demonstrating the value of AI projects.  On the most recent episode of our podcast What the Dev?, Madeleine Corneli, lead product manager of AI/ML at Exasol ..read more

Boomi is helping companies more easily discover, manage, and govern all of their APIs with the launch of the Boomi API Control Plane.  This new offering utilizes technology gained from Boomi’s recent acquisition of the federated API management company APIIDA.  According to Boomi, organizations can sometimes have “shadow APIs,” which are APIs that exist outside of the purview of IT. By allowing shadow APIs to be discovered from a central location, IT will gain more control over their API landscape and increase API consumption throughout the organization.  The Boomi API Control Pl ..read more
