Why is MongoDB Atlas a great platform for AI?

In order to leverage the foundation models or large language models (LLMs) that power generative-AI applications, organizations need to be able to train and prompt them with their own data. By doing this, the models can give responses that better reflect the real-time “ground truth.” This is called retrieval-augmented generation” (RAG), and it enables you to provide the context necessary to craft AI-generated outputs that are reliable, relevant, and accurate.

To prompt AI models with your own data, you need to first turn it into vector embeddings. These vectors provide multi-dimensional numerical encodings of your data that captures its patterns, relationships, and structures. Vector embeddings give your data semantic meaning; calculating the distance between vectors makes it easy for applications to understand the relationships and similarities between different data objects.

Querying these vectors allows you to extend information search and discovery beyond keyword matching to context-aware semantic search that is capable of inferring meaning and intent from a user’s search term.

All of this data needs to be queried to power application functionality, not just to surface semantic meaning through vector search, but also to accomplish the regular operations such as key-value lookups, handling a firehose of updates to the data, and running sophisticated aggregations and transformations supporting analytics processing. These queries power application features outside of any generative AI use cases. But they become even more important when we can use them alongside in-context prompts to foundation models, improving accuracy and relevance of the outputs our LLM generates.

MongoDB Atlas integrates operational and vector databases in a single, unified platform. It provides foundation models with the up-to-date information needed to build context-aware, generative AI-powered applications. And it also handles full-text search, real-time analytics, and event-driven experiences so developers can build a wide range of application services while keeping the data architecture simple.
