Retrieval Augmented Generation For Conference Recordings
Conference recordings have become an integral part of the academic and business world. With the advancement of technology, attending conferences in person is no longer the only option. Conference recordings allow individuals to access valuable information and insights from anywhere in the world. These recordings are not only beneficial for attendees, but they also provide a wealth of data for researchers, marketers, and organizations. In this blog article, we will explore the concept of retrieval augmented generation for conference recordings and its benefits for various stakeholders.
Understanding Conference Recordings
Conference recordings are audio or video recordings of presentations, talks, and discussions that take place at conferences. These recordings are typically made available online after the event, allowing individuals to access the content at their convenience. With the rise of virtual and hybrid conferences, conference recordings have become even more prevalent.
The Benefits for Researchers
For researchers, conference recordings provide a treasure trove of data. They offer access to presentations and discussions from top experts in their field, which can be used for further analysis and research. Conference recordings also allow researchers to access information from conferences they may not have been able to attend in person due to geographical or financial constraints. This expands the scope of their research and promotes collaboration among researchers.
The Benefits for Marketers
Marketers can use conference recordings to gain insights into the latest trends, strategies, and techniques in their industry. These recordings provide a wealth of information on industry developments, consumer behavior, and competitor analysis. Marketers can also use conference recordings to identify potential partnerships and networking opportunities within their industry.
The Benefits for Organizations
Organizations can greatly benefit from analyzing conference recordings. By analyzing the presentations and discussions at conferences, organizations can gain a better understanding of their target audience and market trends. This information can then be used to inform decision-making, improve products and services, and stay ahead of the competition. Additionally, conference recordings can serve as a valuable training resource for employees, allowing them to stay updated on industry developments and best practices.
What is Retrieval Augmented Generation?
Retrieval augmented generation (RAG) is a technique that combines large language models with traditional information retrieval methods. It allows for the generation of relevant and coherent text based on a given prompt or query. This approach has been successful in various natural language processing (NLP) tasks, including text summarization and question answering.
How Does RAG Work for Conference Recordings?
RAG can be applied to conference recordings by using the recorded content as the retrieval component. The large language model then generates text based on the retrieved information. This allows for the creation of summaries, transcripts, and other forms of content from conference recordings. RAG can also be used to generate questions and answers from conference recordings, providing a more interactive and engaging experience for viewers.
The Benefits of RAG for Conference Recordings
RAG allows for the creation of transcripts and summaries from conference recordings, making the content more searchable. This is particularly beneficial for researchers and marketers who are looking for specific information within the recordings.
With RAG, the process of creating transcripts, summaries, and other content from conference recordings is automated. This saves time and resources for researchers, marketers, and organizations, allowing them to focus on other tasks.
Enhanced User Experience
RAG can create more interactive and engaging content for conference recordings. This not only improves the user experience but also increases the value of the recordings for attendees.
Insights and Analysis
RAG can be used to generate insights and analysis from conference recordings. This allows for a deeper understanding of the content and can provide valuable insights for researchers, marketers, and organizations.
In conclusion, conference recordings provide a wealth of data for researchers, marketers, and organizations. With the use of retrieval augmented generation, this data can be transformed into valuable insights, summaries, and other forms of content. This not only improves the accessibility and searchability of conference recordings but also saves time and resources for stakeholders. As technology continues to advance, the possibilities for retrieval augmented generation and conference recordings are endless, making them an essential tool for any researcher, marketer, or organization.
How To Use Speak’s Retrieval Augmented Generation For Conference Recordings
Step 1: Create Your Speak Account
To start your transcription and analysis, you first need to create a Speak account. No worries, this is super easy to do!
Get a 14-day trial with 30 minutes of free audio and video transcription and analysis included when you sign up for Speak.
To sign up for Speak and start using Speak Magic Prompts with retrieval augmented generation, just visit the Speak app register page here.
Step 2: Upload Your Conference Recordings
We typically recommend MP4s for video or MP3s for audio.
However, we accept a range of audio, video and text file types.
You can upload your file for transcription in several ways using Speak:
Accepted Audio File Types
Accepted Video File Types
Accepted Text File Types
- Word Doc
You can also upload CSVs of text files or audio and video files. You can learn more about CSV uploads and download Speak-compatible CSVs here.
With the CSVs, you can upload anything from dozens of YouTube videos to thousands of Conference Recordings files.
Publicly Available URLs
You can also upload media to Speak through a publicly available URL.
As long as the file type extension is available at the end of the URL you will have no problem importing your recording for automatic transcription and analysis.
Speak is compatible with YouTube videos. All you have to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKfcLcHeivc).
Speak will automatically find the file, calculate the length, and import the video.
If using YouTube videos, please make sure you use the full link and not the shortened YouTube snippet. Additionally, make sure you remove the channel name from the URL.
This library of integrations continues to grow! Have a request? Feel encouraged to send us a message.
Step 3: Calculate and Pay the Total Automatically
Once you have your file(s) ready and load it into Speak, it will automatically calculate the total cost (you get 30 minutes of audio and video free in the 14-day trial – take advantage of it!).
If you are uploading text data into Speak, you do not currently have to pay any cost. Only the Speak Magic Prompts analysis would create a fee which will be detailed below.
Once you go over your 30 minutes or need to use Speak Magic Prompts, you can pay by subscribing to a personalized plan using our real-time calculator.
Step 4: Wait for Speak to Analyze Your Conference Recordings
If you are uploading audio and video, our automated transcription software will prepare your transcript quickly. Once completed, you will get an email notification that your transcript is complete.
That email will contain a link back to the file so you can access the interactive media player with the transcript, analysis, and export formats ready for you.
If you are importing CSVs or uploading text files Speak will generally analyze the information much more quickly.
Speak will automatically embed your data in a well-architected vector database which allows you to use retrieval augmented generation for Conference Recordings.
Step 5: Visit Your File Or Folder
Speak is capable of analyzing both individual files and entire folders of data.
When you are viewing any individual file in Speak, all you have to do is click on the “Prompts” button.
If you want to analyze many files, all you have to do is add the files you want to analyze into a folder within Speak.
You can do that by adding new files into Speak or you can organize your current files into your desired folder with the software’s easy editing functionality.
Step 6: Select Speak Magic Prompts To Analyze Your Conference Recordings
What Are Magic Prompts?
Speak Magic Prompts leverage innovation in artificial intelligence models often referred to as “generative AI”.
These models have analyzed huge amounts of data from across the internet to gain an understanding of language.
With that understanding, these “large language models” are capable of performing mind-bending tasks!
With Speak Magic Prompts, you can now perform those tasks on the audio, video and text data in your Speak account.
Retrieval augmented generation is what makes these Magic Prompts work so well.
Step 7: Select or Create Your Assistant Type
To help you get better results from Speak Magic Prompts, Speak has introduced “Assistant Type”.
These assistant types pre-set and provide context to the prompt engine for more concise, meaningful outputs based on your needs.
To begin, we have included:
Choose the most relevant assistant type from the dropdown.
You can also create your own custom Assistant Template Type.
If you visit the new page Account Preferences, you can see there is now an area where you can create your own custom Assistant.
This allows you to set the context of the engine for higher quality and more consistent outputs.
For example, you could say:
“We are [COMPANY NAME]. We are analyzing [DATA] to understand how to improve [GOAL]. We want all responses to be concise and in table format.”.
This becomes a reusable template in any of your manual or automated Magic Prompts.
You can create multiple templates for different use cases.
As an example, the analysis you run on a focus group may be different than a one-on-one interview.
Step 8: Create Or Select Your Desired Prompt
Here are some examples prompts that you can apply to any file right now:
- Create a SWOT Analysis
- Give me the top action items
- Create a bullet point list summary
- Tell me the key issues that were left unresolved
- Tell me what questions were asked
A modal will pop up so you can use the suggested prompts we shared above to instantly and magically get your answers.
If you have your own prompts you want to create, select “Custom Prompt” from the dropdown and another text box will open where you can ask anything you want of your data!
Step 9: Review & Share Responses
Speak will generate a concise response for you in a text box below the prompt selection dropdown. With Chat enabled, you can also continue to query that data to reveal more insights and reformat the information to your needs.
In this example, we ask to analyze all the Conference Recordings in the folder at once for the top product dissatisfiers.
You can easily copy that response for your presentations, content, emails, team members and more!
