Open OnDemand Chat Interface

Hello all,

I’m happy to say I can finally share the OnDemand chat interface I’ve been working on for some time. This is a frontend only, OpenAI API streaming/RAG compatible, chat interface for Open OnDemand. This is meant to be as minimally invasive to the primary web app as possible. This is an updated version of the app I demoed last year at the SC OOD booth. This was ran in production on version 1.8 but has been modified for version 3.1.

The code is open sourced here - GitHub - idaholab/HPC_OOD_Chat: This code creates an interface for a web-based front-end only chatbot interface.

Additionally we wrote a paper on our results of using this in production for a few months - Supplementing HPC Support with a Science Gateway AI Assistant (Technical Report) | OSTI.GOV

I am not much of a web developer, so I apologize in advance for bugs and weird ways of doing things. Happy to improve this though if anyone wants to submit any PRs!

Here are a few examples of what this looks like in the dashboard -



Thank you for sharing this, it looks great! I’m excited to try it out and read the paper. I think this could provide a lot of convenience and utility for OnDemand users. I’m very interested in how users reacted to it and what they decided to use it for.

Hi Brandon, this is great. Would you be able to present this at the August Tips and Tricks call?

Hi Martin, definitely. I thought the August Tips and Tricks was going to be for a PEARC recap though?

Thanks Brandon, let me clarify this, I thought we sort of previewed the PEARC last time. I’ll get in touch directly.
