The major challenge when integrating AI into any project is managing interactions between the AI and the rest of your application. This becomes especially complex when the AI needs to make API calls to retrieve information or trigger actions.
AI Tool Bridge for PHP elegantly solves this problem by offering a straightforward interface to define "tool functions" that the AI can utilize when it needs to interact with external systems.
An important optimization is the library's capability to generate the required JSON structure for a tool function. It does so by requesting only the required values from the AI and then generating the JSON based on a provided JSON schema. This approach guarantees the validity of the final JSON that reaches your application code.
Let's assume you have an ecommerce business and you want to provide an AI chat interface which allows to browse your product catalog. To do so, you've decided to integrate with OpenAI's GPT-4 model through the ChatGPT API.
