Choosing a model

Choose the model that best suits your needs, balancing speed, accuracy, and cost. Advanced models are better at reasoning and return more accurate results, but they’re slower and more expensive to use.

Converse offers default, advanced, and multistep models. For conversations with a single document, the default model is used. For conversations with multiple documents, the multistep model is used. You can change the model in the chat box.

Build offers default and, for commercial and enterprise users, advanced models. You can switch to the advanced model for individual fields in the field editor.

Chatbots support the multistep model.

Models incur differing usage costs. For details, see the pricing policy.

All models use certain capabilities in developing answers to your prompts, but they vary in complexity, accuracy, and approach.

Default model

The default model is good at quickly analyzing most documents. It’s optimized for speed and cost, but it can be less accurate when it comes to longer documents, complex reasoning, or mathematics.

Default model capabilities include:

  • Search — Searches all pages in the document for information relevant to the prompt.

  • Calculate — Performs basic mathematical calculations based on information found in the document.

  • Extract tables — Extracts information from tables found in the document.

  • Visualize — (Converse only) Creates visualizations such as graphs and charts, if you request a graph or chart in the prompt.

Advanced model

The advanced model is better at handling dense or complex documents, reasoning, and mathematics. The advanced model tends to give more accurate and detailed results.

In Build, the advanced model is available only to commercial and enterprise users.

Advanced model capabilities include:

  • Search — Searches all pages in the document for information relevant to the prompt.

  • Calculate — Performs mathematical calculations based on information found in the document. The advanced model is better at mathematics than the default model.

  • Extract tables — Extracts information from tables found in the document. The advanced model more accurately retrieves data from tables, especially long or multipage tables.

  • Visualize — (Converse only) Creates visualizations such as graphs and charts, if you request a graph or chart in the prompt.

Multistep model (Converse and chatbots only)

When you give the multistep model a prompt, it responds dynamically: it breaks your query down into a series of steps, executing each step before generating the next step. This step-by-step approach allows the multistep model to perform more complex reasoning and mathematics, better understand context, and return more robust and detailed answers.

Multistep model capabilities include:

  • Search — Searches all pages in the document for information relevant to the prompt. The multistep model performs reasoning or calculations based on the information it finds. It also returns details about what information it found, and where in the document it found the information.

  • Calculate — Performs mathematical calculations based on information found in the document. Multistep model calculations are more accurate than those of the default or advanced models.

  • Extract tables — Extracts information from tables found in the document.

  • Visualize — Creates visualizations such as graphs and charts, if you request a graph or chart in the prompt.

  • Plan — The model considers its findings so far before determining its next step, resulting in more complete contextual answers.

  • Evaluate — The model evaluates its potential response to make sure it’s accurate and answers the prompt. If needed, the model revises its response before returning it to you.
