Using OpenAI's ChatGPT 4 AI to write SQL queries for data analysis

Tips & Tricks

The release of OpenAI's ChatGPT artificial intelligence product has made it easier than ever for business users and data analysts to become more productive at their job. One big benefit of this new technology for business analysts is its ability to help you write SQL queries. SQL has long been a useful language for business analysts to query and analyze data. Learning and writing SQL is easier than ever with the assistance of AI technology that can help you automatically write, edit, debug, and optimize SQL queries in seconds.

If you'd like to use AI to help you with SQL directly on your own data schema, you can get started today with LogicLoop's AI-assisted SQL bot, which harness the power of ChatGPT's SQL generation AI to help you generate SQL queries you can run directly on your database.

How ChatGPT and artificial intelligence (AI) can help you write SQL queries

ChatGPT is a powerful language model that can assist users in writing SQL queries. This tool can be especially useful for those who are new to SQL or who need help with more complex queries. One of the main benefits of using ChatGPT to write SQL queries is its ability to understand natural language inputs. This means that users can simply explain the data they are looking for and the model will generate the appropriate SQL query. This can save users a significant amount of time and effort compared to manually writing the query themselves.

Another benefit of using ChatGPT for SQL queries is its ability to generate multiple options for a given query. This can be useful for users who are unsure of the best way to structure a query or for those who want to compare different options. Additionally, ChatGPT can help users with debugging their SQL queries by identifying and pointing out any errors.

ChatGPT can also help users with more advanced SQL concepts, such as joining tables and creating subqueries. These can be difficult to understand and implement for those who are new to SQL, but ChatGPT can provide clear explanations and examples to help users better understand these concepts.

In addition to its ability to write and explain SQL queries, ChatGPT can also provide context-aware suggestions while you're writing a query. It can also provide information about the table and its columns, which can help users understand the data they are working with. With ChatGPT, you can spend less time and effort on writing SQL queries and more time on analyzing the data you need.

Let's take a look at a few concrete examples with the most popular LogicLoop use cases: 

Example: flagging users with high transaction velocity

One of the most popular use cases of LogicLoop is for fraud & transaction monitoring. Users want to write SQL queries to identify suspicious transactions on their platform. In the following example, we used AI to help us write a SQL query to find all users who have spent over $10,000 in the past month, indicating high transaction velocity which should prompt an investigation from a fraud analyst.

Example: finding power users who invite many other users

Another popular use case of LogicLoop is for finding power users on your platform in order to further engage them by giving them extra support or encouraging them to consider an upsell of your product. In this example, we had AI help us construct a SQL query to find all power users on our platform who have invited at least 10 other teammates to our application in the past week so sales teams members can reach out to specific individuals.

Example: learning how to find low inventory levels

If you're learning SQL for the first time, ChatGPT can even explain to you how it constructed the SQL query and what each line means. Another use case that is popular on LogicLoop is monitoring logistics and inventory levels. That way you can detect which items are low in stock and need to be reordered. In this example, AI was able to explain to us how to create a SQL query that computes which SKUs have the lowest inventory level counts.

Example: find companies spending a lot on your platform that are experiencing slow support ticket response times

AI can even generate some very complex SQL queries. Another popular use case for LogicLoop is support ticket SLA monitoring. LogicLoop users want to write a SQL query that finds all of their customers (users or companies) that are experiencing slow support ticket response times so that they can alert their customer support staff to take action. This is particularly relevant if a user or company is an important customer or makes large dollar amount purchases and represents an entity that brings in a lot of revenue. In the following query, AI took these various factors into consideration to generate a fairly complex SQL query to retrieve the data we want.

As we've seen with just 4 examples, using AI to generate SQL can be extremely powerful. As with any new technology, AI is not a panacea, and you shouldn't expect to be able to just copy & paste SQL queries without understanding how your data works. However, AI makes it significantly more effective and convenient to learn and wield the powers of complex SQL. You can and sign up for LogicLoop to try it out yourself and harness the power of AI-assisted SQL directly on your own data. Improve your business' operating efficiency, decreases losses and bad actors on your platform, or capture growth opportunities today.
