[Dust] Product Update 4

We've been hard at work improving Dust to help you work smarter with AI assistants. We're thrilled to unveil Multi-Tool assistants, a feature that fundamentally changes how AI assistants operate within your organization:

๐ŸŽ‰ Multi-Tool assistants

Why Multi-Tools is a game-changer:

  • Multi-step Thinking: your assistants can now tackle complex problems by breaking them down into manageable steps. They will first, analyze your request, breaking it down into steps and then decide which are the most appropriate tools to use.
  • Flexible Tool Selection: assistants intelligently choose and combine tools to solve your unique challenges, adapting to each task's needs.
  • Transparency: see exactly which tools were used, fostering trust and understanding in the AI's decision-making process.

Available tools include Semantic Search, Web Navigation, Data Analysis with Query Tables, and Extract Data. Plus, you can create custom tools with Dust Apps.

Imagine an assistant that can research your prospects, analyze your recent interactions, and craft personalized follow-ups โ€“ all in one seamless operation. That's the power of Multi-tool assistants.

This launch represents our vision of AI as a true thinking partner, capable of handling nuanced, multi-faceted tasks across your organization.
