The Search API helps connect LLMs and AI applications to trusted and real-time knowledge, thus reducing hallucinations and overall bias. Simply put, the API helps your AI make better decisions.

  • In-depth Research

    Simplify data gathering with trusted, aggregated and curated results from a single API call.

  • Intelligent Query Suggestions and Answers

    Equip your AI with the ability to iteratively deepen its knowledge through automated, nuanced answers and follow-up queries.

  • Just as search is fundamental to human knowledge work, it's essential for AI assistants aiding those humans. At CopilotKit, we provide infrastructure for building deeply-integrated AI assistants into any application, and search is often a critical capability implicitly expected of these assistants. Tavily's Search API bridges this critical gap, and has been instrumental in empowering many of our customers' AI copilots with accurate, up-to-date information retrieval capabilities - transforming them into invaluable productivity enhancers for end-users from day one.
