Cover Image for Meaningful autocomplete still missing

Some time ago we blogged about the sad state of search functions on German websites. Newspaper portals in particular have a large amount of high-quality content, but without powerful search, only the latest articles can be found in a useful way.

In this video, we take a look at major publications and how they deal with the issue of search and autocomplete. A spoiler ahead: the situation is unchanged.

For the moment, we limited ourselves to German publications, so the video is also only available in a DE version.

Rundify - read, understand, verify

Digital technology has overloaded people with information, but technology can also help them to turn this flood into a source of knowledge. Large language models can - if used correctly - be a building block for this. Our "rundify" tool shows what something like this could look like.

ChatGPT and the oil spill

Like with deep learning before, data remains important in the context of large language models. But this time around, since somebody else trained the foundation model, it is impossible to tell what data is really in there. Since lack of data causes hallucinations etc. this ignorance has pretty severe consequences.
