Main Talk: Enhancing Interactive Python Error Feedback with OpenAI's ChatCompletions

Errors and exceptions, while disruptive and frustrating, are an inevitable aspect of programming. What if we could embrace them in our workflows and receive more intuitive assistance? In this talk, we will explore the integration of Large Language Models (LLMs), such as OpenAI's GPT, with the IPython kernel to improve the debugging process for developers and data scientists.

By creating a custom IPython exception handler, we can transform obscure error messages into context-aware feedback, streamlining the iteration and experimentation process. We will demonstrate how augmenting the interactive computing experience with language models can enhance the dialogue between users and systems, making it easier to embrace and learn from mistakes.

We'll discuss various prompting strategies and techniques for effectively communicating the context of an IPython session to GPT, covering topics such as code history, output encoding, and traceback interpretation. Join us as we dive into the exciting world of readily accessible large language models and their potential to revolutionize data analysis and development workflows.
