This documentation describes the integration of MindsDB with Google Gemini, a generative artificial intelligence model developed by Google. The integration allows for the deployment of Google Gemini models within MindsDB, providing the models with access to data from various data sources.


Before proceeding, ensure the following prerequisites are met:

  1. Install MindsDB locally via Docker or Docker Desktop.
  2. To use Google Gemini within MindsDB, install the required dependencies following this instruction.
  3. Obtain the Google Gemini API key required to deploy and use Google Gemini models within MindsDB. Follow the instructions for obtaining the API key.


Create an AI engine from the Google Gemini handler.

CREATE ML_ENGINE google_gemini_engine
FROM google_gemini
      google_gemini_api_key = 'api-key-value';

Create a model using google_gemini_engine as an engine.

CREATE MODEL google_gemini_model
PREDICT target_column
      engine = 'google_gemini_engine',  -- engine name as created via CREATE ML_ENGINE
      column = 'input_column',          -- column name that stores user input
      model = 'gemini-pro';             -- model name to be used


The following usage examples utilize google_gemini_engine to create a model with the CREATE MODEL statement.

Create a model to generate text completions with the Gemini Pro model for your existing text data.

CREATE MODEL google_gemini_model
PREDICT answer
      engine = 'google_gemini_engine',
      column = 'question',
      model = 'gemini-pro';

Query the model to get predictions.

SELECT question, answer
FROM google_gemini_model
WHERE question = 'How are you?';

Alternatively, you can query for batch predictions:

SELECT t.question, m.answer
FROM google_gemini_model AS m
JOIN data_table AS t;
