Discover how to boost chatbots with OpenAI's GPT-3 and Laravel. Learn about vector embeddings and how giving a URL to your chatbot lets you ask questions about the page, making interactions smarter and easier to handle.
OpenAI's GPT model, is super smart, but its last update? September 2021. That might not sound like a long time ago, but in the tech world, it's an eternity! Just think about it: if you were to chat with ChatGPT and ask about the latest OpenAI package for Laravel, it'd give you a puzzled digital look. It's just not in the know about that yet. It's a good reminder that even the most advanced tools have their limits and need a bit of help catching up sometimes.
In this post you will:
Learn about Embeddings and Vector Similarity: We’ll be explore embedding and vector similarity, which help improve our chatbot’s understanding.
Implement a real chatbot use case: You’ll be implementing a feature in a Laravel application where users can submit URLs. The chatbot will then process the content of these URLs using NLP to understand context and content, and respond appropriately.
Embeddings and Vector Similarity
Embedding, in the context of machine learning and natural language processing, refers to the conversion of data (usually words or phrases) into vectors of real numbers. These vectors represent the data in a way that a machine can understand, process, and utilize.
Tokenization: The first step in the embedding process often involves breaking down a piece of text into smaller units, called tokens. These tokens can be as short as a single character or as long as a word.
Vector Representation: Each token is then mapped to a vector in a predefined vector space. This mapping is done using algorithms that ensure semantically similar words are placed closer together in the vector space.
Dimensionality: The vector space can be of any dimension, but for practical purposes and computational efficiency, we often reduce the number of dimensions using techniques like Principal Component Analysis (PCA) or t-SNE. Despite the reduction in dimensions, the relative distances (or similarities) between vectors are preserved.
Vector similarity is a measure of the closeness or similarity between two vectors. It helps in determining how alike two pieces of data are. The more similar the vectors, the more similar the data they represent.
Cosine Similarity: One of the most common ways to measure vector similarity. It calculates the cosine of the angle between two vectors. A value of 1 means the vectors are identical, while a value of 0 means they're orthogonal (or not similar at all).
Euclidean Distance: Another method where the similarity is determined based on the "distance" between two vectors. The closer they are, the more similar they're considered to be.
Dot Product: If the vectors are normalized, taking the dot product of two vectors will give a value between -1 and 1, which can also be a measure of similarity.
Imagine we're using a 3-dimensional space to represent our words. Here's a hypothetical representation:
Cat: [0.9, 0.8, 0.1]
Dog: [0.8, 0.9, 0.05]
Computer: [0.2, 0.1, 0.95]
In this representation:
The vectors for "cat" and "dog" are close to each other, indicating they are semantically similar. This is because they are both animals and share certain characteristics.
The vector for "computer", on the other hand, is farther from the vectors of "cat" and "dog", indicating it is semantically different from them.
If we were to visualize this in a 3D space:
"Cat" and "dog" might be near each other in one corner, while "computer" would be on the opposite side or in a different corner of the space.
Using cosine similarity:
The similarity between "cat" and "dog" would be high (close to 1) because their vectors are close.
The similarity between "cat" and "computer" or "dog" and "computer" would be much lower (closer to 0) because their vectors are farther apart.
Remember, this is a very simplified representation. In real-world applications, the dimensions are much higher (often in the hundreds or thousands), and the vectors are derived from vast amounts of data to capture intricate semantic relationships.
Implement a real use case
Our primary tool for storing vectors will be Pine code. However, you can also use pg vector and the underlying mechanics of vector similarity will be essential to grasp the full potential of our chatbot. And to further elevate its capabilities, we'll introduce web scraping. This ensures our bot is aware with information about a webpage, making it capable at answering queries related to that page.
Here you can see what we will acomplish with our implementation:
The first step is:
User submits a web link.
Backend Service receives the link.
Crawler visits the link.
Data Processing occurs:
Converts content using a Markdown Converter.
Store the processed vector to the database.
Then once we have crawled the web page we will see a chat, where you can ask question about that page.
Question from user is vectorized.
Search for similarities in vector database (Pinecode).
Results sent to OpenAI for context.
OpenAI's Embedding API processes data.
The AI responds to the user
Here is a video of the end result.
Let's create new laravel project, we will name it aichat.
Select laravel breeze with livewire and alpine so we have livewire to make a our chat and tailwind css installed for making it easy to create our chat UI.
Install openai package for laravel.
Publish openai config.
Add this env variable on your .env file.
Setting up your pinecone account
Install pinecode for php
Creating a section for setting up a Pinecone account and obtaining the necessary variables in a Laravel PHP project can be structured as follows:
1. Create a Free Pinecone Account:
- Visit the Pinecone Website
- Click on "Get Started" or "Sign Up" to create a free account.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration.
- Once you create your index create the index using a vector dimension of 1536 and the rest can be standard.
2. Obtain Your Pinecone API Key and Environment Variable:
- Once logged in, navigate to your account settings or dashboard.
- Look for a section titled "API Keys" or "Credentials".
- Generate a new API key and note down the environment variable associated with your account (usually it's a string like production or development).
3. Setup Pinecone Variables in Your Laravel Project:
- In your Laravel project, open or create a .env file in the root directory.
- Add the following lines to your .env file, replacing YOUR_API_KEY and YOUR_ENVIRONMENT with the values obtained from your Pinecone account:
4. Add a pinecone.php in the config directory:
- Now in your Laravel PHP code, you can access these variables using the env() function as shown below:
5. Initialize Pinecone:
Install readability package for php this will help us generate sanitized html.
To begin developing the UI, simply run npm run dev. Once you have completed the development process, be sure to execute npm run build in order to generate all the necessary CSS and JS files.
Now that our project is ready we can start creating helper class to collecting data that we will embed. Before we start lto create an account in browserless to get info from the webpage and get the html. You can do this also with the laravel HTTP client, but some pages are not SSR loaded. You can replace it just with laravel HTTP client if you want.
Setting Up Your Browserless Account
Browserless is a service that allows for browser automation and web scraping in a serverless environment. To use Browserless, you'll need to set up an account and obtain a unique BROWSERLESS_KEY. Here's how to do it:
1. Create a Free Browserless Account:
- Visit the Browserless Website
- Click on "Start for Free" or "Sign Up" to create a free account.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration.
2. Obtain Your Browserless API Key:
- Once logged in, navigate to your account settings or dashboard.
- Look for a section titled "API Keys" or "Credentials".
- Generate a new API key, which will be your BROWSERLESS_KEY.
Create a Class EmbedWeb.php
Here's a simplified breakdown of what this class does:
Fetching Web Content:
- The [crayon-65d046c404e89578596592-i/] method is triggered with a URL as its argument.
- It sends a HTTP POST request to a web browsing automation service (browserless) to load the specified web page. Alternatively, it can send a plain HTTP GET request if web browsing automation is not needed.
Processing Web Content:
- Utilizes the [crayon-65d046c404e8a605941581-i/] library to parse the fetched web page, isolating the main content and stripping away html elements.
- The script cleans up the text by removing HTML tags and splits it into chunks of up to 1000 characters each, ensuring the last chunk is at least 500 characters long by merging it with the previous chunk if necessary.
- Sends the processed text chunks to OpenAI's service to generate text embeddings, which are compact numerical representations of the text in vectors. Just like we saw earlier.
- Clears any previous embeddings indexed under the 'web' namespace for the 'chatbot' index in Pinecone, a vector database.
- Then, it indexes the new embeddings in Pinecone, associating each embedding with a unique ID based on the URL and chunk index, and storing the original text and URL as metadata.
This way, the script facilitates the automated retrieval, processing, and indexing of web content, making it searchable and usable for a chatbot.
Creating the chatbot
Now let's create the livewire component.
This will create 2 files
Create a blade file components/layouts/app.blade.php
And in your app.css file ad this
This way if the chatbot returns code, it show a code block in black.
Creating a class for managing a conversion with Open AI
We are going to create a class that will manage chat messages and go to the Open AI API, we will be using the stream response because we want the same behaviour as we have today with chatgpt, we don't want to wait until the whole message is finished.
The class [crayon-65d046c404e92052303359-i/] will handle chat interactions with OpenAI. The [crayon-65d046c404e98239071946-i/] method is the heart of this class, taking in chat messages and two handlers for processing the chat as it streams from OpenAI's GPT-3.5 Turbo model.
Upon calling [crayon-65d046c404e99944743672-i/] , a streamed chat with OpenAI is initiated using the provided messages. As responses come in from OpenAI, they are looped through and the new content is appended to a [crayon-65d046c404e9a035637635-i/] string. If a [crayon-65d046c404e9b702253691-i/] is provided, it's called with the updated content rendered to HTML, allowing for real-time updates.
Once all messages have been processed, the [crayon-65d046c404e9c984775370-i/] is called with the full content also rendered to HTML, signaling the end of the chat processing. This setup allows for both real-time processing of chat messages as they come in and a final handling step once all messages have been processed.
This will be used in our ChatBot.php class
Not let's go trough the ChatBot.php class in livewire.
Let's add some properties.
The prompt will what user types for asking questions.
The answer property will be the current answer the chatbot is streaming once we go to open ai. We will be using wire:stream to stream the response to the front end.
Pending is a boolean so we now the AI is streaming a response and we are waiting it to finish.
Conversions array will be used to save our chat messages.
And the step property will help us giving a step to add the URL and after entering the URL we will show the chat UI.
Let's add a submitUrl method
The url will be the url we want the scrap. This will be validated to be required and have a valid url.
The submitUrl method validates the url property, processes it using the EmbedWeb class explained in a previous snippet, and transitions to a chat step by updating the step property to 'chat'.
In our chat-bot.blade.php file
We make the url wire:modelable and once we click on the button we submit the url and call the function we just made.
Now let's create a submitPromt method so we can make a question about the url we have given.
The submitPrompt method is designed to process a user's prompt, find relevant information from previously indexed web content, and prepare for a chat interaction based on the information retrieved.
An instance of the Pinecone vector database client is created.
The user's prompt is sent to OpenAI to obtain a text embedding.
A query is made to Pinecone to find the top 4 most relevant snippets of web content based on the text embedding.
A system message is prepared with these snippets, instructing to base the answer on the given info.
The conversation array is updated with the system message and the user's prompt.
The user prompt input field is cleared ($this->prompt = '').
A flag ($this->pending) is set to true, indicating a pending action so we can show the user some indication that the chatbot is responding.
Let's create the ask method in livewire:
The ask method orchestrates a chat interaction by handling incoming messages, generating responses, and managing real-time updates to the UI.
Creating Chat Handler:
An instance of ChatMessages is created and its handle method is called with the current conversation as an argument.
Handling Finished Responses:
When the handle method finishes processing, it triggers the finishedHandler callback function.
A new message from the 'assistant' is appended to the conversation array, containing the generated content.
The answer property is cleared, and pending is set to false, indicating that processing is complete.
Handling Streamed Responses:
If there are streamed updates during processing (like real-time typing indicators or partial responses), the streamHandler callback is triggered.
These updates are streamed to the 'answer' component on the frontend, replacing any previous content, providing a dynamic, real-time interaction experience.
We use the wire:stream functionality livewire gives us. This makes our so much easier, before livewire 3.0 what we did was actually using websockets to have the message update in realtime. Having the stream functionality makes our life so much easier without having the need of installing websockets.
The method facilitates a structured chat interaction, handling real-time updates, and appending final responses to the conversation, readying the system for the next user input.
Now let go over the UI to make this work.
The interface is split into two main sections: the chat display area and the message input area.
In the chat display area:
Messages from the 'assistant' and 'user' are iterated over and displayed with different stylings for easy differentiation.
If there's a pending response (indicated by the $pending variable), a placeholder is displayed until the actual response ($answer) is received and displayed with the wire:stream functionality.
Livewire's wire:stream directive is used to update the answer area in real-time as new content is streamed from the server.
In the message input area:
Users can type their message into a text input field.
Pressing the Enter key or clicking the "Send" button triggers the submitPrompt method, sending the user's message for processing.
Any validation errors for the prompt input are displayed just below the input field.
Now you can ask questions about the webpage you gave, like we showed in the video earlier on.
In this journey, we've creatively integated OpenAI, Laravel, and Pinecone to give our chatbot a significant boost and extra knowledge. It all started with our EmbedWeb class, a tool that will do some scrapping and will get the web for content, embeds it, and saves it in Pinecone, our chosen vector database. This step automated the work of data gathering and set the stage for the chatbot to work its magic.
Then came the ChatMessages class, that is in charge of handling the conversation flow. It will stream the response so we can
And then, we rolled up our sleeves for the heart of our project - the chatbot code. With a blend of structured logic and innovative coding, we crafted a setup that takes user prompts, sifts through the indexed web content, and engages in a meaningful back-and-forth with the user. The cherry on top? Real-time updates and a sleek UI, courtesy of Laravel's Livewire and Tailwind CSS, which made the chat interface not only functional but a delight to interact with.
What we have now is a testament to the magic that happens when OpenAI's text embeddings, Laravel's robust framework, and Pinecone's vector database come together. This fusion not only amped up our chatbot's understanding but also its ability to dish out relevant, timely responses. As we wrap up, we're not just left with a solid piece of work, but a stepping stone towards more intuitive and engaging chatbot interactions. The road ahead is exciting, and the possibilities, endless.
As user demand grows, traditional server scaling has been a common approach to handle increased traffic. It involves adding more servers to distribute the workload and ensure high availability. This method often requires setting up load balancers to distribute incoming requests, horizontally scaling the application by adding more servers to the pool, and implementing database replication for better performance and fault tolerance.
However, as technology evolves, serverless architecture has gained popularity due to its numerous benefits. Bref.sh, a serverless framework specifically designed for PHP applications, enables developers to deploy Laravel applications on serverless platforms such as AWS Lambda. With serverless, the infrastructure management burden is significantly reduced, and automatic scaling ensures that resources are allocated dynamically based on demand, leading to cost optimization and improved performance.
Throughout this blog post, we'll delve into each of these scaling approaches, examining their benefits, implementation techniques, and best practices. By understanding these strategies, you'll be well-equipped to scale your Laravel applications effectively, providing a seamless experience to your growing user base.
Stay tuned as we explore the world of scaling Laravel applications using traditional server scaling, serverless architecture with Bref.sh. Let's dive in!
Traditional Server Scaling
When it comes to scaling Laravel applications, one of the tried and tested approaches is traditional server scaling. This method involves adding more servers to handle increased traffic and distribute the workload effectively. Let's take a closer look at the key aspects of traditional server scaling.
Load Balancers: Load balancers play a crucial role in distributing incoming requests across multiple servers. By evenly distributing the workload, they help prevent any single server from becoming overwhelmed. Popular load balancer solutions include Nginx, HAProxy, and AWS Elastic Load Balancer (ELB).
Horizontal Scaling: With horizontal scaling, additional servers are added to the server pool to handle increased traffic. Each server in the pool operates independently, sharing the load and ensuring better performance. Horizontal scaling allows for better utilization of resources and improved fault tolerance.
Database Replication: Scaling the application servers is not the only consideration when it comes to handling increased traffic. Database scalability is equally important. Implementing database replication, such as master-slave replication or multi-master replication, can help distribute the database workload and ensure better read and write performance.
While traditional server scaling offers increased scalability and performance, it also comes with some challenges and considerations:
Server Management: With more servers in the infrastructure, managing and maintaining them can become complex. It requires monitoring server health, applying updates and patches, and ensuring proper configuration across all servers.
Cost: Traditional server scaling involves the cost of purchasing and maintaining additional hardware or provisioning virtual servers. Along with the server costs, there are expenses associated with power, cooling, and network infrastructure.
Complexity: As the number of servers increases, so does the complexity of the overall system. Ensuring proper load balancing, managing server configurations, and maintaining data consistency across multiple servers can become challenging.
Despite these challenges, traditional server scaling remains a viable approach for scaling Laravel applications. It offers flexibility, control, and the ability to fine-tune the infrastructure to meet specific requirements.
In the next section, we will explore an alternative approach to scaling Laravel applications: serverless architecture with Bref.sh.
Serverless Architecture with Bref.sh
Serverless architecture has gained popularity in recent years due to its scalability, cost-effectiveness, and reduced infrastructure management. Bref.sh is a powerful serverless framework specifically designed for PHP applications, including Laravel. Let's delve into the world of serverless architecture and how Bref.sh can be leveraged to scale Laravel applications.
Introduction to Serverless Architecture: In a serverless architecture, the server management burden is abstracted away. Instead of provisioning and managing servers, developers can focus solely on writing code. Applications are divided into small, stateless functions that are triggered by events. Each function runs independently and automatically scales based on demand.
Benefits of Serverless Architecture: Serverless architecture offers several advantages when it comes to scaling Laravel applications:
Automatic Scaling: With serverless, the platform automatically scales the application by allocating resources dynamically based on incoming requests. This ensures optimal performance during peak times and cost savings during periods of low traffic.
Cost Optimization: Serverless platforms charge based on actual usage, providing cost savings compared to maintaining a fleet of servers constantly. With serverless, you only pay for the resources consumed during function execution.
Reduced Infrastructure Management: Serverless platforms abstract away the infrastructure management tasks, such as server provisioning, scaling, and monitoring. Developers can focus on writing code and deploying functions without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
Bref.sh and Laravel Integration:
Bref.sh is a serverless framework that simplifies deploying Laravel applications on serverless platforms such as AWS Lambda. It provides a smooth integration with Laravel, allowing you to harness the power of serverless while leveraging the Laravel framework's features and ecosystem.
You can visit the documentation page at https://bref.sh/Deployment Process with Bref.sh: The deployment process with Bref.sh involves the following steps:
Configuration: Set up the Bref.sh configuration file to define the functions, events, and dependencies required for your Laravel application.
Function Definition: Define individual functions within your Laravel application that correspond to specific routes or tasks.
Deploying Functions: Use Bref.sh CLI commands to deploy your Laravel application to a serverless platform like AWS Lambda. Bref.sh handles the necessary packaging, uploading, and configuration behind the scenes.
Event Triggers: Configure event triggers to connect your serverless functions to various events such as HTTP requests, queues, or scheduled tasks.
Scaling Laravel with Bref.sh: By leveraging Bref.sh and serverless architecture, you can easily scale Laravel applications. As traffic increases, the serverless platform automatically scales your application by provisioning and executing additional function instances to handle the workload. This elastic scaling ensures optimal performance and eliminates the need for manual server provisioning.
Prerequisites: Before you begin, ensure you have the following prerequisites in place:
A Laravel project set up on your local development environment.
An AWS account to deploy your application on AWS Lambda using Bref.sh
Step 1: Install Bref.sh To start, we need to install Bref.sh as a Composer dependency in your Laravel project. Open a terminal or command prompt and navigate to your Laravel project directory. Then, execute the following command:
Step 2: Configure Serverless.yml Once Bref.sh is installed, you need to create a serverless.yml file in the root directory of your Laravel project. This file will contain the configuration settings for your serverless deployment. Here's a basic example of serverless.yml:
In the serverless.yml file, we define the service name, AWS region, runtime, and other essential settings. The functions section specifies the Lambda function named web, which will handle incoming HTTP requests.
Step 3: Create the Deployment Package To create the deployment package, you need to build your Laravel project and copy the necessary files to the vendor directory. Bref.sh provides a convenient command to automate this process:
Step 4: Deploy to AWS Lambda With the deployment package ready, it's time to deploy your Laravel project to AWS Lambda. Execute the following command:
Step 5: Access Your Serverless Laravel Application After a successful deployment, Serverless will provide you with an API Gateway URL that maps to your Lambda function. You can access your serverless Laravel application by visiting this URL in your web browser.
Congratulations! You've successfully integrated Bref.sh into your Laravel project, making it serverless-ready on AWS Lambda. Serverless PHP opens up new possibilities for scalable and cost-effective solutions. Now you can focus on building powerful applications without worrying about server management.
Best Practices for Scaling Laravel
Scaling Laravel applications involves more than just adopting specific approaches or technologies. It also requires implementing best practices that optimize performance, ensure efficient resource utilization, and maintain the scalability of your application. Here are some key best practices to consider:
Caching: Utilize Laravel's caching mechanisms to reduce the load on your application and improve response times. Leverage caching solutions like Redis or Memcached to store frequently accessed data, query results, or rendered views.
Database Optimization: Optimize database performance by using proper indexing, minimizing database queries, and leveraging tools like Laravel's query builder to write efficient database queries. Consider database replication or sharding techniques to distribute the database workload.
Code Profiling: Use profiling tools and techniques to identify performance bottlenecks in your code. Profile your application to pinpoint areas that can be optimized or optimized.
Resource Monitoring: Implement monitoring solutions to gain insights into your application's performance, resource usage, and potential issues. Utilize tools like Laravel Horizon, New Relic, or custom monitoring setups to track important metrics and ensure the health of your application.
Horizontal and Vertical Scaling: Depending on your application's requirements, consider both horizontal scaling (adding more servers or instances) and vertical scaling (increasing the resources of existing servers or instances) to handle increased traffic and workload effectively.
Scaling Laravel applications is a crucial step in ensuring their performance, availability, and user experience as they encounter increased traffic and workload. In this blog post, we explored different approaches to scaling Laravel, including traditional server scaling and serverless architecture with Bref.sh.
Traditional server scaling provides control and flexibility but comes with challenges such as server management and complexity. On the other hand, serverless architecture with Bref.sh offers automatic scaling, cost optimization, and reduced infrastructure management.
To successfully scale Laravel applications, it's essential to follow best practices such as caching, database optimization, code profiling, and resource monitoring. These practices optimize performance, ensure efficient resource utilization, and maintain the scalability of your application.

We hope this blog post has provided you with valuable insights and guidance on scaling Laravel applications effectively. Happy scaling!
In the fast-paced world of software development, agility and efficiency are paramount. To navigate the complexities and deliver high-quality products, teams rely on methodologies like Scrum. With its iterative and collaborative approach, Scrum has emerged as a popular framework for managing software projects. In this article, we will explore why Scrum is widely used and discuss some essential processes that are worthy to have in software development.
Scrum offers a flexible and iterative approach to software development, enabling teams to adapt to changing requirements and deliver incremental value. Here are a few key reasons why Scrum has gained prominence:
- Increased Transparency: Scrum promotes transparency by providing visibility into the project's progress through regular meetings, such as daily stand-ups, sprint planning, and sprint reviews. This transparency fosters effective communication and ensures that all stakeholders have a clear understanding of the project's status.
- Improved Collaboration: Scrum emphasizes cross-functional teamwork, with roles like Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Development Team working together closely. This collaborative environment encourages knowledge sharing, collective decision-making, and fosters a sense of ownership among team members.
- Iterative Development: Scrum breaks down the software development process into smaller iterations called sprints. Each sprint focuses on delivering a valuable increment of the product. This iterative approach allows for faster feedback, continuous improvement, and early value realization.
While Scrum provides a solid foundation, certain processes complement the framework and contribute to successful software development. Here are a few worth considering:
- Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD): CI/CD practices automate the process of building, testing, and deploying software. By integrating code changes frequently and deploying them quickly, teams can identify and fix issues early, reduce risks, and ensure a streamlined release cycle.
- Test-Driven Development (TDD): TDD is an approach where tests are written before the code is implemented. This process promotes better code quality, improves maintainability, and increases confidence in the software's functionality. TDD also enables easier refactoring and helps identify design flaws early in the development cycle.
- Code Reviews: Code reviews involve systematic examination of code by peers to identify bugs, improve code quality, and ensure adherence to coding standards. Code reviews provide opportunities for knowledge sharing, learning, and catching potential issues before they impact the overall system.
- Agile Retrospectives: Retrospectives are regular meetings where teams reflect on their processes, identify areas for improvement, and define actionable steps to enhance efficiency. By fostering a culture of continuous learning and adaptation, retrospectives enable teams to evolve and refine their practices.
- User-Centric Design: Incorporating user-centered design principles ensures that the software meets the needs and expectations of its intended users. Techniques such as user research, personas, and usability testing help in understanding user requirements, validating assumptions, and creating intuitive and user-friendly experiences.
Scrum, with its agile principles, provides a solid foundation for software development, fostering collaboration, adaptability, and transparency. However, it's important to complement Scrum with relevant processes that align with the team's goals and project requirements. Processes like CI/CD, TDD, code reviews, retrospectives, and user-centric design enhance the development lifecycle, improve code quality, and lead to successful software products. By leveraging Scrum and integrating these valuable processes, software development teams can navigate the complexities of their projects, deliver high-quality software, and achieve customer satisfaction.
