Indexing just once rather than with each question

My code seems to re-index all URLs with every question. This means that all questions take about 60-90sec to be answered, which is obviously way too much.

How can I update the code to only index once, thereby suffering this delay once? Ideally I’d like to index on a schedule, e.g. once per day.

import openai
import gradio as gr
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

openai.api_key = "<our-API-key>"

def search_manual():
    urls = [
<list of URLs>
    all_headings = []

    for url in urls:
        response = requests.get(url)
        soup = BeautifulSoup(response.content, "html.parser")
        headings = [heading.text.strip() for heading in soup.find_all("h2")]
    return all_headings

def chatbot(input):
    headings = search_manual()
    messages = [
        {"role": "system", "content": f"You are a helpful and kind AI Assistant. Here are some headings from the manual: {', '.join(headings)}"}
    if input:
        messages.append({"role": "user", "content": input})
        chat = openai.ChatCompletion.create(
            model="gpt-3.5-turbo", messages=messages
        reply = chat.choices[0].message.content
        messages.append({"role": "assistant", "content": reply})
        return reply

inputs = gr.inputs.Textbox(lines=7, label="Chat with AI")
outputs = gr.outputs.Textbox(label="Reply")

gr.Interface(fn=chatbot, inputs=inputs, outputs=outputs, title="AI Chatbot",
             description="Ask anything you want",


I asked ChatGPT-4 and it’s reply seemed pretty good, you can find it here AI Chatbot Indexing Solution
