How does one detect hallucinations?
Hallucinations are an interesting artifact of LLMs where the model tends to make up facts or generate outputs that are not factually correct.There are two broad approaches for detecting hallucinations:1. Verify the correctness of the response against world knowledge (via Google/Bing search)2. Verify the groundedness of the response against the information present in the retrieved contextThe 2nd approach is more interesting and useful as the majority of LLM applications have an RAG component

We are excited to show you modguard - a Python tool we built to enforce a modular, decoupled package architecture.We built modguard to solve a recurring problem that we've experienced on software teams - code sprawl. Over time, cross-module imports would tightly couple together what used to be independent domains, and eventually create "balls of mud". This made it harder to test, and harder to make changes. Mis-use of modules which were intended to be private would then deg

Every anniversary, I am reminded of the first time this thought crossed my mind and the original post on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/startups/comments/fhsn0v/what_is_the_reason_no_one_is_competing_with_upwork/).

in Chemistry, specifically the area of supercooling things.On a whim he decided that it would be interesting to supercool

heating "in slow motion" atom by atom.He needed something very stable but radioactive. The best option
seemed to be Uranium Hexafloride gas. Florine combines with anything
and is very stable so any defrost
