Buffer of Thoughts (BoT): A Novel Thought-Augmented Reasoning AI Approach for Enhancing Accuracy, Efficiency, and Robustness of LLMs

Introducing Buffer of Thoughts (BoT)

The Buffer of Thoughts (BoT) is a novel thought-augmented reasoning AI approach designed to enhance the accuracy, efficiency, and robustness of Large Language Models (LLMs) such as GPT-4, PaLM, and LLaMA in various reasoning tasks.

Practical Solutions and Value

BoT addresses the limitations of existing single-query and multi-query reasoning systems by introducing a meta-buffer, a small library storing high-level thought-templates extracted from diverse problem-solving procedures. These thought-templates enable effective thought-augmented reasoning and enhance reasoning accuracy and efficiency across a wide range of tasks.

The approach is stable, scalable, and demonstrates the following practical benefits:

  • Enhanced Precision: Utilizing shared thought-templates eliminates the need to construct reasoning structures from scratch, significantly enhancing reasoning precision.
  • Streamlined Reasoning: By directly utilizing historical reasoning structures, the thought-augmented reasoning streamlines processes and eliminates the need for cumbersome multi-query procedures.
  • Improved Robustness: BoT’s approach mirrors human brain processes, enhancing the model’s ability to consistently solve similar issues and improving its resilience and accuracy.

The researchers conducted comprehensive experiments, demonstrating BoT’s superiority over prior state-of-the-art methods on difficult tasks that require extensive reasoning, making it a promising tool for real-world applications.

Future Paths Revealed by BoT

The proposed approach greatly improves accuracy and efficiency, paving the way for future developments such as creating an open-domain system by combining BoT with external resources and optimizing the distillation of thought-templates for increasingly complicated activities.
