Turn your CSV file into an AI Chatbot

Turn your CSV file into an AI Chatbot

We just released a new feature in Magic that allows you to import a CSV file while keeping all columns and data from it. This allows you to import any CSV file you have, for then to connect it to a custom GPT.

In the video below I import a data set I found for coursera courses. The original file contains 8,000+ records, which is easy for us to deal with - But to keep the video short, I only imported 11 records. However, imagine having an AI chatbot you could ask questions such as.

  • I want to learn how to play Jazz on the piano
  • How many hours is Jake's Python course?
  • What's the rating for Jane's painting course?
  • Etc ...

The point being of course that we preserve all columns, both headers and content, for all records, allowing ChatGPT to work with highly semantic data. Below is one records from an example CSV file to illustrate the point.

Use cases

We've always had the ability to connect ChatGPT to your database, but the process was complex and requires some software development. With this latest feature, you can dump your database to a CSV file, and create an AI chatbot in some few minutes.

Another use case is for data collection. Typically, when collecting data, you somehow end up with a CSV file, and/or you can rapidly create one. This might be for instance accounting data, lists of employees, your contacts, etc.

By connecting your custom GPT to for instance your address book, for then to create a send email API endpoint, you can use ChatGPT to create emails and send to contacts. Imagine the following prompt for instance.

Create a summary from our latest board meeting and send to our CEO

The above could trigger a lookup into one of your RAG database types where you've imported transcripts from your latest Zoom meetings, for then to summarize it, invoke your contacts type to retrieve the name and email of your CEO, for then to send the summary on an email to him. There's nothing in the above example that couldn't be done in Magic in some few minutes.

Anything that can somehow be exported to a CSV file can rapidly be turned into a chatbot. In the video below I walk you through the steps required to setup such a thing.


With this latest feature, creating AI chatbots or custom GPTs based upon CSV files have been drastically improved and simplified - Exponentially increasing potential use cases, making CSV files much easier to handle using the Low-Code and No-Code features of Magic.
