Hey, community! 👋
My name is Sven and I work as an AI researcher at thingsTHINKING.
We integrated our semantic platform with large-scale (data) customers. They use Snowflake to combine hundreds of data sinks. Connecting with Snowflake’s API and using Streamlit gave the users a super-efficient UI while preserving our platform capabilities. The integration was only 3 lines of code—and the UI setup was only 46!
In this post, I’ll show you:
- How to integrate semantic AI processing into your apps and use cases
- How to give your app “common sense” with a 3-liner
- How to get inspired!
How to integrate semantic AI processing into your apps and use cases
Follow these simple steps:
Step 1. Install the corresponding semantha package for your use case with
pip install semantha-streamlit-compare.
Here is an example:
from semantha_streamlit_compare.components.compare import SemanticCompare compare = SemanticCompare() compare.build_input(sentences=("First sentence", "Second sentence"))
Step 2. Create your Streamlit UI and add the semantha endpoint.
Here is a sample UI with only 30 lines of code on GitHub:
Step 3 (optional). Import the semantha (Python) package into your code and use it in whatever form you’d like.
Step 4. Request an API code from semantha and run your prototype.
For example, to use a component, request a
secrets.toml file from firstname.lastname@example.org. After you are authenticated, copy it into the
.streamlit/secrets.toml folder as documented here. You may need to create it in the root of your Streamlit app.
Here is the file structure of the
[semantha] server_url="URL_TO_SERVER" api_key="YOUR_API_KEY_ISSUED" domain="USAGE_DOMAIN_PROVIDED_TO_YOU" documenttype="document_with_contradiction_enabled"
How to give your app “common sense” with a 3-liner
If you’ve done the above, you’ve built “common sense” into your app, which can now automatically understand when things are similar, different, or of opposite meanings. Extend this idea to documents and all the unstructured information you process every day. You know where this could lead to…a trusty sidekick in your daily knowledge work!
How to get inspired!
Check out this video to see what people have built based on Streamlit:
You know your use cases best—and you know where a coworker (in this case, not a human but an AI) could be very helpful!
We’ll provide more use cases in future posts, including:
- Movie Quote Search
- ESG Document Comparison Using semantha’s MagicSort
- RFI/RFP/Tender processing with semantic platforms on Streamlit/Snowflake
Happy coding! 🧑💻
