Automatic Model Selection with Large Language Models for Reasoning

Xu Zhao, Yuxi Xie, Kenji Kawaguchi, Junxian He, Qizhe Xie

Chain-of-Thought and Program-Aided Language Models represent two distinct reasoning methods, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. We demonstrate that it is possible to combine the best of both worlds by using different models for different problems, employing a large language model (LLM) to perform model selection. Through a theoretical analysis, we discover that the performance improvement is determined by the differences between the combined methods and the success rate of choosing the correct model. On eight reasoning datasets, our proposed approach shows significant improvements. Furthermore, we achieve new state-of-the-art results on GSM8K and SVAMP with accuracies of 96.5% and 93.7%, respectively. Our code is publicly available at
