MindsDB ML-SQL Server enables machine learning workflows for the most powerful databases and data warehouses using SQL. Tweet

  • Developers can quickly add AI capabilities to your applications.
  • Data Scientists can streamline MLOps by deploying ML models as AI Tables.
  • Data Analysts can easily make forecasts on complex data (like multivariate time-series with high cardinality) and visualize them in BI tools like Tableau.

Machine Learning using SQL


You can try the Mindsdb ML SQL server here (demo).


To install the latest version of MindsDB please pull the following Docker image:

docker pull mindsdb/mindsdb

Or, use PyPI:

pip install mindsdb


MindsDB automates and abstracts machine learning models through virtual AI Tables:

Apart from abstracting ML models as AI Tables inside databases, MindsDB has a set of unique capabilities:

  • Easily make predictions over very complex multivariate time-series data with high cardinality

  • An open JSON-AI syntax to tune ML models and optimize ML pipelines in a declarative way

How it works:
  1. Let MindsDB connect to your database.

  2. Train a Predictor using a single SQL statement (make MindsDB learn from historical data automatically) or import your ML model to a Predictor via JSON-AI.

  3. Make predictions with SQL statements (Predictor is exposed as virtual AI Tables). There’s no need to deploy models since they are already part of the data layer.

Check our docs and blog for tutorials and use case examples.


  • Automatic data pre-processing, feature engineering, and encoding
  • Classification, regression, time-series tasks
  • Bring models to production without “traditional deployment” as AI Tables
  • Get models’ accuracy scoring and confidence intervals for each prediction
  • Join ML models with existing data
  • Anomaly detection
  • Model explainability analysis
  • GPU support for models’ training
  • Open JSON-AI syntax to build models and bring your ML blocks in a declarative way

Database Integrations

MindsDB works with most of the SQL and NoSQL databases and data Streams for real-time ML.
