Version information

Important Information for AI Helper Users: Protecting Your Data and Privacy

AI Helper requires connecting Studio 3T to your own instance of ChatGPT using a unique API key.

No data values are passed via the API key to OpenAI.

AI Helper shares only necessary field names, data types, and natural language queries with OpenAI.

Users of tools leveraging large language models like ChatGPT should be aware of the possible risks of sharing sensitive metadata with a third-party AI provider.

OpenAI will not use data submitted by customers via their API to train or improve the models unless the user explicitly decides to share the data with them for this purpose.

AI Powered Querying Experience

Query Interpretation

The AI helper would be able to understand natural language queries in order to interpret them into MongoDB queries. This would involve parsing the query for relevant keywords, identifying the intent of the query (e.g. select, update, delete), and determining the appropriate syntax for the MongoDB query.

Query Optimization

Once the AI helper has interpreted the natural language query and generated a corresponding MongoDB query, it could also help optimize the query for performance. This might involve analyzing the query for potential bottlenecks, such as long-running aggregation pipelines or excessive use of indexing, and suggesting ways to optimize the query for faster execution.
