LLM Question Answering with Langchain, Qdrant and OpenAI#

Giskard is an open-source framework for testing all ML models, from LLMs to tabular models. Don’t hesitate to give the project a star on GitHub ⭐️ if you find it useful!

In this notebook, you’ll learn how to create comprehensive test suites for your model in a few lines of code, thanks to Giskard’s open-source Python library.

In this example, we illustrate the procedure using OpenAI Client that is the default one; however, please note that our platform supports a variety of language models. For details on configuring different models, visit our 🤖 Setting up the LLM Client page

This notebook presents how to implement a Question Answering system with Langchain, Qdrant as a knowledge base and OpenAI embeddings. As a knowledge base we will take a set of natural google questions

Use-case:

Outline:

  • Detect vulnerabilities automatically with Giskard’s scan

  • Automatically generate & curate a comprehensive test suite to test your model beyond accuracy-related metrics

  • Upload your model to the Giskard Hub to:

    • Debug failing tests & diagnose issues

    • Compare models & decide which one to promote

    • Share your results & collect feedback from non-technical team members

Install dependencies#

Make sure to install the giskard[llm] flavor of Giskard, which includes support for LLM models.

[1]:
%pip install "giskard[llm]" --upgrade

We also install the project-specific dependencies for this tutorial.

[2]:
%pip install qdrant-client, tiktoken

Start the Qdrant server#

To use the Qdrant vector storage, first you need to download related docker-compose.yaml. Then execute:

[ ]:
%wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openai/openai-cookbook/main/examples/vector_databases/qdrant/docker-compose.yaml -O docker-compose.yaml
%docker-compose up -d; curl http://localhost:6333

Dataset preparation#

Load data#

[7]:
def load_data() -> tuple[list, list]:
    """Download lists of questions to the Google and related answers."""
    base_url = os.path.join(DATA_URL, "{}")
    q = pd.read_json(base_url.format("questions.json"))[0].tolist()
    a = pd.read_json(base_url.format("answers.json"))[0].tolist()
    return q, a


questions, answers = load_data()

Wrap dataset with Giskard#

To prepare for the vulnerability scan, make sure to wrap your dataset using Giskard’s Dataset class. More details here.

[ ]:
raw_data = pd.DataFrame({TEXT_COLUMN_NAME: questions[:5]})
giskard_dataset = Dataset(raw_data, target=None)

Model building#

Create a model with LangChain#

Now we create our model with langchain, using the VectorDBQA class. As was stated, we will use the Qdrant as a vector embedding storage:

[ ]:
def get_context_storage() -> Qdrant:
    """Initialize a vector storage of embedded Google answers (context)."""
    text_splitter = RecursiveCharacterTextSplitter(chunk_size=500, chunk_overlap=100, add_start_index=True)
    docs = text_splitter.split_documents(text_splitter.create_documents(answers))
    db = Qdrant.from_documents(docs, OpenAIEmbeddings(), host="localhost",
                               collection_name="google answers", force_recreate=True)
    return db


# Create the chain.
llm = OpenAI(model_name=LLM_NAME, temperature=0)
prompt_template = PromptTemplate(template=PROMPT_TEMPLATE, input_variables=["context", "question"])
google_qa_chain = RetrievalQA.from_llm(llm=llm, retriever=get_context_storage().as_retriever(), prompt=prompt_template)

# Test the chain.
google_qa_chain("What is Google")

Detect vulnerabilities in your model#

Wrap model with Giskard#

To prepare for the vulnerability scan, make sure to wrap your model using Giskard’s Model class. You can choose to either wrap the prediction function (preferred option) or the model object. More details here.

[10]:
# Define a custom Giskard model wrapper for the serialization.
class QdrantRAGModel(Model):
    def model_predict(self, df: pd.DataFrame) -> pd.DataFrame:
        return df[TEXT_COLUMN_NAME].apply(lambda x: self.model.run({"query": x}))

    def save_model(self, path: str, *args, **kwargs):
        out_dest = Path(path)

        # Save the chain object
        self.model.save(out_dest.joinpath("model.json"))

        # Save the Qdrant connection details
        db = self.model.retriever.vectorstore

        qdrant_meta = {
            "collection_name": db.collection_name,
        }

        with out_dest.joinpath("qdrant.json").open("w") as f:
            json.dump(qdrant_meta, f)

    @classmethod
    def load_model(cls, path: str, *args, **kwargs) -> Chain:
        src = Path(path)

        # Load the FAISS-based retriever
        with src.joinpath("qdrant.json").open("r") as f:
            qdrant_meta = json.load(f)

        client = QdrantClient(
            "localhost",
            api_key=None,
        )

        db = Qdrant(
            client,
            collection_name=qdrant_meta["collection_name"],
            embeddings=OpenAIEmbeddings(),
        )

        # Load the chain, passing the retriever
        chain = load_chain(src.joinpath("model.json"), retriever=db.as_retriever())
        return chain


# Wrap the QA chain.
giskard_model = QdrantRAGModel(
    model=google_qa_chain,
    # A prediction function that encapsulates all the data pre-processing steps and that could be executed with the dataset used by the scan.
    model_type="text_generation",  # Either regression, classification or text_generation.
    name="The LLM, which knows different facts",  # Optional.
    description="This model knows different facts about movies, history, news, etc. It provides short single-sentence summary answer only. This model politely refuse if it does not know an answer.",
    # Is used to generate prompts during the scan.
    feature_names=[TEXT_COLUMN_NAME]  # Default: all columns of your dataset.
)

Let’s check that the model is correctly wrapped by running it:

[ ]:
# Validate the wrapped model and dataset.
print(giskard_model.predict(giskard_dataset).prediction)

Scan your model for vulnerabilities with Giskard#

We can now run Giskard’s scan to generate an automatic report about the model vulnerabilities. This will thoroughly test different classes of model vulnerabilities, such as harmfulness, hallucination, prompt injection, etc.

The scan will use a mixture of tests from predefined set of examples, heuristics, and LLM based generations and evaluations.

Note: this can take up to 30 min, depending on the speed of the API.

Note that the scan results are not deterministic. In fact, LLMs may generally give different answers to the same or similar questions. Also, not all tests we perform are deterministic.

[ ]:
results = scan(giskard_model)
[13]:
display(results)

Generate comprehensive test suites automatically for your model#

Generate test suites from the scan#

The objects produced by the scan can be used as fixtures to generate a test suite that integrates all detected vulnerabilities. Test suites allow you to evaluate and validate your model’s performance, ensuring that it behaves as expected on a set of predefined test cases, and to identify any regressions or issues that might arise during development or updates.

Debug and interact with your tests in the Giskard Hub#

At this point, you’ve created a test suite that covers a first layer of potential vulnerabilities for your LLM. From here, we encourage you to boost the coverage rate of your tests to anticipate as many failures as possible for your model. The base layer provided by the scan needs to be fine-tuned and augmented by human review, which is a great reason to head over to the Giskard Hub.

Play around with a demo of the Giskard Hub on HuggingFace Spaces using this link.

More than just fine-tuning tests, the Giskard Hub allows you to:

  • Compare models and prompts to decide which model or prompt to promote

  • Test out input prompts and evaluation criteria that make your model fail

  • Share your test results with team members and decision makers

The Giskard Hub can be deployed easily on HuggingFace Spaces. Other installation options are available in the documentation.

Here’s a sneak peek of the fine-tuning interface proposed by the Giskard Hub:
