MindsDB is a Server for Artificial Intelligence Logic, enabling developers to ship AI powered projects from prototyping & experimentation to production in a fast & scalable way. Tweet

We do this by abstracting Generative AI, Large Language and other Models as a virtual tables (AI Tables) on top of enterprise databases. This increases accessibility with organizations and enables development teams to use their existing skills to build applications powered by AI.

By taking a data-centric approach to AI MindsDB brings the process closer to the source of the data minimizing the need to build and maintain data pipelines and ETL’ing, speeding up the time to deployment and reducing complexity.

MindsDB has an active and helpful community. Feel free to join our Slack and check-out the rewards and community programs.

Use cases

Here are some popular use cases you can build with MindsDB:

  • Conversational AI: Leverage MindsDB native integrations with data platforms and pre-trained large language models, like OpenAI's GPT, to quickly build conversational AI solutions without the overhead of managing complex data pipelines.
  • Fraud Detection: MindsDB can help developers build models to detect fraudulent activity in financial transactions, eCommerce platforms etc.
  • Sales Forecasting: MindsDB can be used to develop models to predict future sales based on historical sales data, allowing businesses to make better-informed decisions.
  • Customer Segmentation: MindsDB can help developers segment customers based on their behavior, preferences, and other factors, allowing businesses to tailor their marketing efforts.
  • Sentiment analysis: MindsDB native integration with pre-trained models like OpenAI GPT or Hugging Face can be used to analyze the sentiment of a text data, such as a customer reviews - in a single command, instead of individual API calls and ETL-ing data.
  • Predictive Maintenance: MindsDB can be used to build models to predict when equipment or machinery is likely to fail, allowing for proactive maintenance and minimizing downtime.

You can try MindsDB using our demo environment with sample data for most popular use cases.


The prefered way is to use MindsDB Cloud free demo instance or use a dedicated instance. If you want to move to production use the AWS AMI image/

To install locally or on-premise pull the latest Docker image:

docker pull mindsdb/mindsdb

How it works

  1. CONNECT MindsDB to your data platform. We support 100+ data platforms and this list is constantly growing. If you can’t find the integration you need, please let us know.
  2. CREATE MODEL to connect the AI Engine you pick that will learn from your data and serve it as AI Table.
    1. If you have an NLP use case, CREATE MODEL will integrate the AI Table with already pre-trained model you choose (like OpenAI’s GPT or Hugging Face models).
    2. Please check the docs if you want to have manual control over model engineering.
  3. JOIN such model with your database tables to make predictions for thousands or even millions of data points at once, or run SELECT statements or API calls to make one time predictions.
  4. Set up a JOB to automate your re-training cycle and predictions pipelines for the new incoming data.
  5. Alternatively, use REST API to query the models

Follow the quickstart guide with sample data to get on-boarded as fast as possible.

Database Integrations

MindsDB works with most of the SQL and NoSQL databases, data lakes and popular applications.
