๐Ÿ“– About us

MindsDB is the platform for building AI from enterprise data.

With MindsDB, you can deploy, serve, and fine-tune models in real-time, utilizing data from databases, vector stores, or applications, to build AI-powered apps - using universal tools developers already know.

MindsDB integrates with numerous data sources, including databases, vector stores, and applications, and popular AI/ML frameworks, including AutoML and LLMs. MindsDB connects data sources with AI/ML frameworks and automates routine workflows between them. By doing so, we bring data and AI together, enabling the intuitive implementation of customized AI systems.

Learn more about features and use cases of MindsDB here.

๐Ÿš€ Get Started

To get started, install MindsDB locally via Docker or Docker Desktop, following the instructions in linked doc pages.

MindsDB enhances SQL syntax to enable seamless development and deployment of AI-powered applications. Furthermore, users can interact with MindsDB not only via SQL API but also via REST APIs, Python SDK, JavaScript SDK, and MongoDB-QL.

๐Ÿ’ก Examples

MindsDB enables you to deploy AI/ML models, send predictions to your application, and automate AI workflows.

AI Workflow Automation

This category of use cases involves tasks that get data from a data source, pass it through an AI/ML model, and write the output to a data destination.

Common use cases are anomaly detection, data indexing/labeling/cleaning, and data transformation.

This example showcases the data enrichment flow, where input data comes from a PostgreSQL database and is passed through an OpenAI model to generate new content which is saved into a data destination.

We take customer reviews from a PostgreSQL database. Then, we deploy an OpenAI model that analyzes all customer reviews and assigns sentiment values. Finally, to automate the workflow for incoming customer reviews, we create a job that generates and saves AI output into a data destination.

-- Step 1. Connect a data source to MindsDB
WITH ENGINE = "postgres",
    "user": "demo_user",
    "password": "demo_password",
    "host": "",
    "port": "5432",
    "database": "demo",
    "schema": "demo_data"

FROM data_source.amazon_reviews_job;

-- Step 2. Deploy an AI model
CREATE ML_ENGINE openai_engine
FROM openai
    openai_api_key = 'your-openai-api-key';

CREATE MODEL sentiment_classifier
PREDICT sentiment
    engine = 'openai_engine',
    model_name = 'gpt-4',
    prompt_template = 'describe the sentiment of the reviews
						strictly as "positive", "neutral", or "negative".
						"I love the product":positive
						"It is a scam":negative

DESCRIBE sentiment_classifier;

-- Step 3. Join input data with AI model to get AI output
SELECT, output.sentiment
FROM data_source.amazon_reviews_job AS input
JOIN sentiment_classifier AS output;

-- Step 4. Automate this workflow to accomodate real-time and dynamic data
CREATE DATABASE data_destination
WITH ENGINE = "engine-name",      -- choose the data source you want to connect to save AI output
PARAMETERS = {                    -- list of available data sources:
    "key": "value",

CREATE JOB ai_automation_flow (
	INSERT INTO data_destination.ai_output (
		SELECT input.created_at,
		FROM data_source.amazon_reviews_job AS input
		JOIN sentiment_classifier AS output
		WHERE input.created_at > LAST

AI System Deployment

This category of use cases involves creating AI systems composed of multiple connected parts, including various AI/ML models and data sources, and exposing such AI systems via APIs.

Common use cases are agents and assistants, recommender systems, forecasting systems, and semantic search.

This example showcases AI agents, a feature developed by MindsDB. AI agents can be assigned certain skills, including text-to-SQL skills and knowledge bases. Skills provide an AI agent with input data that can be in the form of a database, a file, or a website.

We create a text-to-SQL skill based on the car sales dataset and deploy a conversational model, which are both components of an agent. Then, we create an agent and assign this skill and this model to it. This agent can be queried to ask questions about data stored in assigned skills.

-- Step 1. Connect a data source to MindsDB
WITH ENGINE = "postgres",
    "user": "demo_user",
    "password": "demo_password",
    "host": "",
    "port": "5432",
    "database": "demo",
    "schema": "demo_data"

FROM data_source.car_sales;

-- Step 2. Create a skill
    type = 'text2sql',
    database = 'data_source',
    tables = ['car_sales'],
    description = 'car sales data of different car types';


-- Step 3. Deploy a conversational model
CREATE ML_ENGINE langchain_engine
FROM langchain
      openai_api_key = 'your openai-api-key';
CREATE MODEL my_conv_model
PREDICT answer
    engine = 'langchain_engine',
    model_name = 'gpt-4',
    mode = 'conversational',
    user_column = 'question' ,
    assistant_column = 'answer',
    max_tokens = 100,
    temperature = 0,
    verbose = True,
    prompt_template = 'Answer the user input in a helpful way';

DESCRIBE my_conv_model;

-- Step 4. Create an agent
    model = 'my_conv_model',
    skills = ['my_skill'];


-- Step 5. Query an agent
FROM my_agent
WHERE question = 'what is the average price of cars from 2018?';

FROM my_agent
WHERE question = 'what is the max mileage of cars from 2017?';

FROM my_agent
WHERE question = 'what percentage of sold cars (from 2016) are automatic/semi-automatic/manual cars?';

FROM my_agent
WHERE question = 'is petrol or diesel more common for cars from 2019?';

FROM my_agent
WHERE question = 'what is the most commonly sold model?';

Agents are accessible via API endpoints.
