So, sit back, relax, and let's explore our most popular articles of the year 2023 together! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Mastering LangChain: A Beginner’s Guide

LangChain is a framework designed for building applications using large language models (LLMs). It offers six main modules: Model I/O, Retrieval, Chains, Memory, Agents, and Callbacks.

Model I/O covers prompts, language models, and output parser. Retrieval involves document loaders, transformers, text embedding models, vector stores, and retrievers. Chains allow developers to combine multiple components, while Memory enables the referencing of previous information. Agents use LLMs for decision-making, interacting with environments or tools, and memory for storing and retrieving information. Callbacks are useful for logging, monitoring, streaming, and other tasks.

The article also provides a practical Python example of using LangChain. Check it out to learn more! πŸ‘‡πŸ½

LangChain: Chat with Tesla’s Q2 Earnings Call on YouTube

This article presents a tutorial on how to create a chatbot that can analyze YouTube videos ( in our case Tesla's Q2 earnings call) using an AI assistant built with the LangChain framework.

The chatbot loads the video, splits it into semantically relevant chunks, creates numerical representations of these chunks (embeddings), and stores them in a vector database. It then uses a language model to answer questions based on these chunks. The article also provides a demonstration of the chatbot in action, a guide on setting up the development environment, and an overview of the costs involved.

Every Investor is talking about OpenBB 3.0: Here’s why?

OpenBB is an open-source investment research platform that offers high-quality financial market data, analytical tools, and a range of datasets. Its features include the OpenBB Terminal, a CLI application for data analysis, the OpenBB SDK (New name OpenBB Platform), a core engine for accessing financial data from multiple sources, and OpenBB Bot, for sharing investment strategies on chat platforms.

The platform uses Python and is designed to be accessible for everyone. OpenBB 3.0 has introduced well-structured product documentation and future features include an OpenBB Terminal Pro with a GUI and AskOBB, a ChatGPT for investment research.

Our article provides a very good overview of OpenBB. Check it out! πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Everyone is talking about Auto-GPT: Here is how to install it locally

Auto-GPT is an experimental, open-source project that showcases the capabilities of the GPT-4 language model. It's easy to install and set up locally on your computer. You need Python, Git, conda, pip, a bash, and a code editor installed. After setting up a conda environment, you'll clone the Auto-GPT repo, install necessary dependencies, and configure Auto-GPT with your unique OpenAI API key.

Upon starting Auto-GPT, you can name your AI and describe its role, then set goals for it to achieve. However, be aware of the limitations of the program: it's not a polished product, may produce poor results in complex scenarios, and can be expensive to run.
