Introducing Jupyter AI: Powerful and Ethical Code Generation and Assistance
Jupyter AI, a subproject of Project Jupyter, brings generative AI to Jupyter notebooks. With Jupyter AI, you can generate code, fix errors, summarize content, and even create entire notebooks through natural language prompts. The tool connects Jupyter with large language models (LLMs) from top providers, including AI21, Anthropic, AWS, Cohere, and OpenAI, supported by LangChain.
Designed with responsible AI and data privacy in mind, Jupyter AI allows users to choose their preferred LLM, embedding model, and vector database. All the software’s prompts, chains, and components are open source, ensuring data transparency. It also saves metadata about model-generated content, making it easy to track AI-generated code within your workflow. Importantly, Jupyter AI prioritizes user data privacy by only contacting LLMs when requested, never accessing or transmitting data without explicit consent.
Getting started with Jupyter AI is simple. Just install the appropriate version for your JupyterLab (version 3 or 4) using pip. The software offers two interfaces: a chat UI within JupyterLab and a magic command interface for supported notebook environments. The chat interface includes Jupyternaut, an AI assistant that can answer questions, explain code, modify code, and identify errors. You can even generate entire notebooks from text prompts using the “/generate” command.
In the chat interface, you can teach Jupyternaut about local files using the “/learn” command. Jupyternaut uses an embedding model to convert data and store it in a local vector database, enabling you to ask questions about these files using the “/ask” command. The AI then responds based on the stored information.
In notebook environments, you can use magic commands like “%%ai” to interact with LLMs. The software supports multiple providers, and you can customize the output format using the “–format” parameter. You can also use variable interpolation for dynamic interactions with AI models.
Jupyter AI is a valuable tool for AI-driven code generation and assistance in Jupyter notebooks, with a strong focus on ethical considerations, privacy, and data transparency. Remember to review AI-generated code before execution, following the same practices as with human-written code. Take advantage of Jupyter AI’s power and ethical practices to enhance your Jupyter experience.
