I want to supply my own files to the assistant API, but I don’t want to upload them as files directly to my existing assistant - I just want the response to look at the following:
- The files directly uploaded to the assistant
- The files I have in my own database.
And cross reference those, and provide a response based on the data found in those two sources. Is that somewhat possible?
Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!
You can upload files directly to ChatGPT, but either way API or ChatGPT your data needs to be parsed and chunked into a format the model can either directly read as text or search, so at some point you will need to upload your data or possibly run a vector database on your own machine locally and pass the results from searches on that as context to the model in the prompt.
