Prediction Guard#

This page covers how to use the Prediction Guard ecosystem within LangChain. It is broken into two parts: installation and setup, and then references to specific Prediction Guard wrappers.

Installation and Setup#

  • Install the Python SDK with pip install predictionguard

  • Get an Prediction Guard access token (as described here) and set it as an environment variable (PREDICTIONGUARD_TOKEN)

LLM Wrapper#

There exists a Prediction Guard LLM wrapper, which you can access with

from langchain.llms import PredictionGuard

You can provide the name of the Prediction Guard model as an argument when initializing the LLM:

pgllm = PredictionGuard(model="MPT-7B-Instruct")

You can also provide your access token directly as an argument:

pgllm = PredictionGuard(model="MPT-7B-Instruct", token="<your access token>")

Finally, you can provide an “output” argument that is used to structure/ control the output of the LLM:

pgllm = PredictionGuard(model="MPT-7B-Instruct", output={"type": "boolean"})

Example usage#

Basic usage of the controlled or guarded LLM wrapper:

import os

import predictionguard as pg
from langchain.llms import PredictionGuard
from langchain import PromptTemplate, LLMChain

# Your Prediction Guard API key. Get one at
os.environ["PREDICTIONGUARD_TOKEN"] = "<your Prediction Guard access token>"

# Define a prompt template
template = """Respond to the following query based on the context.

Query: {query}

Result: """
prompt = PromptTemplate(template=template, input_variables=["query"])

# With "guarding" or controlling the output of the LLM. See the 
# Prediction Guard docs ( to learn how to 
# control the output with integer, float, boolean, JSON, and other types and
# structures.
pgllm = PredictionGuard(model="MPT-7B-Instruct", 
                                "type": "categorical",
                                "categories": [
                                    "product announcement", 
pgllm(prompt.format(query="What kind of post is this?"))

Basic LLM Chaining with the Prediction Guard wrapper:

import os

from langchain import PromptTemplate, LLMChain
from langchain.llms import PredictionGuard

# Optional, add your OpenAI API Key. This is optional, as Prediction Guard allows
# you to access all the latest open access models (see
os.environ["OPENAI_API_KEY"] = "<your OpenAI api key>"

# Your Prediction Guard API key. Get one at
os.environ["PREDICTIONGUARD_TOKEN"] = "<your Prediction Guard access token>"

pgllm = PredictionGuard(model="OpenAI-text-davinci-003")

template = """Question: {question}

Answer: Let's think step by step."""
prompt = PromptTemplate(template=template, input_variables=["question"])
llm_chain = LLMChain(prompt=prompt, llm=pgllm, verbose=True)

question = "What NFL team won the Super Bowl in the year Justin Beiber was born?"
