Retrieval augmented generation (RAG) is a cutting-edge technology that combines the power of large language models with retrieval and generation capabilities. This innovative approach has taken the world of Natural Language Processing (NLP) by storm, providing new opportunities for researchers, marketers, and organizations to analyze and understand work in a more efficient and effective way. In this blog post, we will explore the concept of RAG and its potential benefits for those interested in studying work.
What is Work?
Before we dive into the benefits of RAG for work analysis, let’s first define what we mean by “work”. In its simplest form, work refers to the physical or mental effort put into a task to achieve a desired outcome. It can take on different forms, such as paid employment, volunteer work, or even personal projects. Work is a fundamental aspect of human existence and has been a topic of interest for researchers, marketers, and organizations for centuries.
Benefits of Work Analysis
As humans, we spend a significant amount of our time working, making it a crucial aspect of our lives. Understanding work and its impact can provide valuable insights for researchers, marketers, and organizations. Here are some key benefits of analyzing work:
Researchers in various fields, such as psychology, sociology, and business, can benefit greatly from analyzing work. By studying work, they can gain a better understanding of how individuals, teams, and organizations function, and how work affects their well-being and productivity. Work analysis also allows researchers to identify patterns and trends, which can be used to develop theories and inform future research.
In today’s fast-paced business world, understanding work is crucial for marketers. By analyzing work, they can gain insights into consumer behavior, preferences, and needs. This information can then be used to develop targeted marketing strategies and create products and services that meet the demands of their target audience. Work analysis can also help marketers identify new market opportunities and stay ahead of their competition.
For organizations, work analysis can provide valuable insights into their employees’ productivity, engagement, and well-being. By understanding the factors that impact work, organizations can make informed decisions to improve their work culture and processes. This can lead to increased employee satisfaction, retention, and ultimately, better business outcomes.
What is Retrieval Augmented Generation?
Retrieval augmented generation is a novel approach to NLP that combines the power of large language models with retrieval and generation capabilities. It involves using a large pre-trained language model, such as OpenAI’s GPT-3, to retrieve relevant information and generate text based on that information. This approach allows for more accurate and contextually relevant responses, making it an ideal tool for analyzing work.
How RAG Can Benefit Work Analysis
The use of RAG for work analysis has several benefits compared to traditional methods. Here are some ways RAG can enhance work analysis:
Speed and Efficiency
RAG can process large amounts of text quickly and efficiently, making it an ideal tool for analyzing work. This can save researchers, marketers, and organizations valuable time and resources, allowing them to focus on other important tasks.
One of the main advantages of RAG is its ability to generate text that is contextually relevant. By using a pre-trained language model, RAG can understand the context of the text and generate responses that are specific to the topic at hand. This is especially useful for analyzing work, as it allows for more accurate and insightful conclusions.
RAG can provide researchers, marketers, and organizations with more in-depth insights into work. By combining retrieval and generation capabilities, RAG can analyze large amounts of text and identify patterns, trends, and themes that may not be easily noticeable through traditional methods. This can lead to more comprehensive and accurate conclusions.
Retrieval augmented generation is a game-changing technology that has the potential to revolutionize the way we analyze work. Its ability to process large amounts of text quickly and generate contextually relevant responses makes it an invaluable tool for researchers, marketers, and organizations. By using RAG, we can gain deeper insights into work and its impact, allowing us to make more informed decisions and drive better outcomes. So whether you’re a researcher, marketer, or organization, it’s time to embrace the power of RAG and take your work analysis to the next level.
How To Use Speak’s Retrieval Augmented Generation For Work
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 Work
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 Work 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 Work
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 Work.
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 Work
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 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 Work 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!
