4 Ways to Use ChatGPT for Graph Databases

OpenAI’s ChatGPT is everybody’s favorite new toy, giving anyone the power to generate reams of text about any topic in a matter of seconds. Whether or not the content is correct is another matter entirely. But it sounds human enough. Colleges and schools are already cracking down. Programmers are using it for coding. ChatGPT and other LLMs (large language models) are threatening to put anyone who types or writes anything for a living out of business. And that’s not even counting the artists, designers, and content owners threatened by AI-gen image systems like Stable Diffusion.

But how can we use ChatGPT in the graph database space? I asked in our internal Slack channel, but thought why am I waiting around for a bunch of puny humans to tell me anything when I can just go to the source?


Aha! Instant outline. Now, who knows if this information is correct? It’ll still need a technical review. Let’s tell the system to expand on each of these ideas. You’ll notice a consistent problem-solution-additionally type of structure. I’ve chopped out the over-repetition of some phrasing.

Text-based Queries

Graph databases are a powerful tool for organizing and managing large amounts of interconnected data. However, searching for information within a graph database can be a challenge, especially for users who are not familiar with graph’s query languages. ChatGPT can process natural language queries from users and translate them into graph database queries, making it easier to search for information.

With this method, users can search for information using plain language, making it easier for them to find the information they need. This is particularly useful in industries where complex relationships between data points are common, such as healthcare, finance, and e-commerce. The ability to process natural language queries can make it easier for users to understand the relationships between data points and locate the information they need quickly and efficiently.

ChatGPT can also improve the user experience of text-based queries, helping make more informed decisions by simplifying the process of searching for information. This leads to increased productivity and improved results. Ultimately, the systems ability to process natural language queries can help to make graph databases more accessible and easier to use for a wider range of users.

Data Enrichment

Graph databases are a powerful way to represent complex relationships between data points, but they can also be difficult to interpret and understand. ChatGPT can play a role in data enrichment by adding descriptive text to graph database nodes and edges so users can understand the context and relationships within the data. This can be particularly useful in industries such as finance, where understanding complex relationships between data points is critical.

This also helps users access a more human-readable representation of relationships within the data that makes the data more accessible and easier to understand, leading to improved decision-making. ChatGPT’s ability to generate descriptive text bridges the gap between technical and non-technical users, encouraging more effective collaboration and communication within an organization.

In addition, this data enrichment can improve the accuracy and consistency of the data. Standardizing how data is described ensures it is consistent across all nodes and edges. This improves data quality and reduces errors making it easier to detect and correct any issues that may arise. Ultimately, this ability to add descriptive text can help to make the data more accessible, understandable, and accurate.

Recommendation Engine

The ability to make accurate and relevant recommendations is a key component of many applications, and ChatGPT can generate recommendations for users based on the relationships between nodes in a graph database. This is particularly useful in industries such as online retail, where personalized recommendations can improve customer satisfaction and increase sales.

By using ChatGPT to generate recommendations, organizations can leverage the relationships between nodes to make informed recommendations to each user. By analyzing the relationships between nodes, the system can understand a user’s preferences and behaviors, and generate recommendations tailored to their specific needs.

This capability can also help increase revenue by improving the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. Trends and patterns in consumer behavior can be identified to target marketing campaigns more effectively. This can increase conversions and sales, as users are exposed to recommendations that are relevant to their interests and needs.

Automated Graph Generation

Working with real data in graph databases can come with challenges such as data privacy and data availability. To overcome these challenges, ChatGPT can be used to generate synthetic graph data based on patterns and relationships in the existing graph data. This allows for testing and experimentation without the need to use real data.

With this approach, organizations can experiment with different graph database configurations and algorithms without the risk of compromising actual data. This is particularly useful in industries such as finance and healthcare, which are subject to strict regulations and privacy concerns. This method provides organizations with the flexibility to experiment and test new ideas.

In addition, ChatGPT’s ability to generate synthetic graph data can also be a valuable tool for training and evaluating graph database algorithms. With a synthetic graph data set that is representative of real-world scenarios, organizations can train and evaluate algorithms in a controlled environment. This can improve accuracy and performance since algorithms can be tested and refined in a controlled environment before being applied to real-world data. This provides organizations with a valuable tool for testing and experimenting with graph databases.

What’s next?

And that’s just four quick use cases for ChatGPT in the graph database space. As these LLM technologies become more ubiquitous the possibilities are endless – and the risks. Even with thousands of words of generated content, a human still has to go in and make sure that what the system is saying is factually correct. Whether or not novice readers will know if what they’re reading is accurate is a whole other landmine.
