May 15 @ 6:00 pm7:00 pm

This week we will cover the use of the OpenAI API with both llama-cpp-python and OpenAI itself. After this session, you will have a solid understanding of how to use the chat completion API along with an approach to run the same code locally against llama-cpp-python.

We will cover account setup, billing & budgets, as well as the python code needed to make function calls. Next we will show the same python code running against a locally hosted model.


  • The videos page at https://hsv.ai/videos/ is updated through our last meetup, so if you want to catch up on previous sessions – give that a shot.
  • The meetups through the summer months are all planned – check the schedule toward the end of this email, as well as https://hsv.ai/calendar/


Over the next several sessions, we will be diving deeper into separate components needed for RAG – hopefully resulting in a chat-based Q&A service for the NASA Technical Report Server.  We were introduced to this data during our submission for the 2022 NASA SpaceApps Challenge – where we placed 2nd. Our submission was a semantic search based on the abstracts for the NSTR dataset of 10,000 papers.
