Microsoft Open-Sourced GraphRAG Python Library to Extract Insights from Text

IBL News | New York

Microsoft Research announced this month that it open-sourced GraphRAG, a valuable Python library that extracts insights from text.

It uses LLMs to automate the extraction of knowledge graphs from datasets and text documents.

“GraphRAG is a structured, hierarchical approach to Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG), as opposed to naive semantic-search approaches using plain text snippets,” explained the company in a blog post.

Retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) is a technique to improve LLM outputs using real-world information.

RAG searches for information based on a user query on private datasets, data that the LLM is not trained on and has never seen before, such as an enterprise’s proprietary research, business documents, or communications.
