Notebooks to store embeddings from a pandas df column in a local weaviate db

I have a df that contains a sentencized version of about 1100 full-text dissertations on a topic. The df consists of 2 columns: the id of the actual dissertation from another df that contains all of the metadata; and then the full_text in English (I used mBart to translate the non-English disses into English) . I want to work exclusively with local open source tools that I can run on my PC’s GPU - NOT in the cloud. E.g. for the embeddings I want to use the currently leading local language models on the MTEB leaderboard.
Does somebody have a Jupyter notebook for this? As well as a docker-compose.yml with the exact setup I need to run this locally?
I’ve been trying this code

import pandas as pd
import torch
import uuid
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel
from import tqdm
import weaviate
from weaviate.connect import Connection

# Initialize Model and Tokenizer
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("BAAI/bge-large-en-v1.5")
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("BAAI/bge-large-en-v1.5")"cuda"))

# Function to Compute Embeddings
def compute_embeddings(text):
    inputs = tokenizer(text, return_tensors="pt", padding=True, truncation=True, max_length=512).to(torch.device("cuda"))
    with torch.no_grad():
        outputs = model(**inputs)
    return outputs.last_hidden_state.mean(dim=1).squeeze().cpu().numpy().tolist()

# Function to create text chunks
def create_text_chunks(dataframe, chunk_size=3, overlap=2):
    chunks = []
    idx = 0
    while idx < len(dataframe):
        if idx + chunk_size <= len(dataframe):
            chunk = ' '.join(dataframe.iloc[idx:idx + chunk_size]['sentence'])
        idx += chunk_size - overlap  # Move the window
    return chunks

# Your generated API key

# Initialize Weaviate Client with API key authentication
client = weaviate.Client(url="http://localhost:8080", auth_client_secret=api_key)

# Delete existing class (if needed)
    print("Class RFSDPDissesEmbeddingEn deleted successfully.")
except Exception as e:
    print(f"Error deleting class: {e}")

# Create new class schema
class_schema = {
    "class": "RFSDPDissesEmbeddingEn",
    "description": "Store embeddings of sentences from dissertations",
    "properties": [
            "name": "text",
            "dataType": ["text"],
            "description": "The text of the sentence",
            "name": "embedding",
            "dataType": ["number"],
            "description": "The embedding vector",
            "vectorIndexType": "hnsw",
            "vectorizer": "none",
            "name": "reference",
            "dataType": ["int"],
            "description": "A reference to the original paper",

# Create new class
    print("Class RFSDPDissesEmbeddingEn created successfully.")
except Exception as e:
    print(f"Error creating class: {e}")

# Load DataFrame
# df_papers_sents = pd.read_csv('your_csv_file.csv')  # Replace with your actual path to the CSV file

# Create chunks
chunks = create_text_chunks(df_papers_sents, chunk_size=3, overlap=2)

# Process Data and Store in Weaviate
batch_size = 256  # Adjust as needed
for start_idx in tqdm(range(0, len(chunks), batch_size), desc="Processing Batches"):
    end_idx = start_idx + batch_size
    batch_chunks = chunks[start_idx:end_idx]

    for index, chunk in enumerate(batch_chunks):
        if chunk.strip():  # Check if the chunk is not empty
            embedding = compute_embeddings(chunk)
            data_object = {
                "embedding": embedding,
                "text": chunk,
                "reference": start_idx + index  # Reference to the original position in df
            unique_id = str(uuid.uuid4())
                client.data_object.create(data_object, "RFSDPDissesEmbeddingEn", unique_id)
                print(f"Added chunk embedding with UUID: {unique_id}")
            except Exception as e:
                print(f"Error adding chunk embedding: {e}")

print("Completed processing and storing embeddings.")

But I get

/root/miniconda3/envs/doc2json/lib/python3.8/site-packages/weaviate/ UserWarning:

Auth001: The client was configured to use authentication, but weaviate is configured without
                    authentication. Are you sure this is correct?

Error deleting class: Delete class from schema! Unexpected status code: 403, with response body: {'error': [{'message': "forbidden: user 'anonymous' has insufficient permissions to delete schema/objects"}]}.

Any suggestions?

Hi @sdspieg !

Welcome to our community :hugs:

Have you seen our docker configurator tool?

This will guide you on how to best configure a docker compose for you.

As you mentioned about using local open source, and not cloud, you can check the text2vec-transformers:

Where you can run those models locally.

Let me know if that helps :slight_smile:
This will
