Meet the Dubo Slackbot

November 16, 2023

The biggest challenge with LLM-powered text-to-SQL tools is that they don’t know your business, its goals, or how it defines its metrics. Even if GPT-5 were released tomorrow and wrote perfect SQL, it wouldn’t be able to answer questions about your business without that context.

We’re solving that problem with Dubo, which learns about your business like any other data analyst who joins your team. Specifically, Dubo does the following:

  1. Scans your database schemas and query history. The database layout and previous queries provide rich information about data access patterns, e.g., common JOINs.
  2. Reads data documentation. We let users provide their data documentation to the LLM for retrieval augmented generation.
  3. Takes direct feedback. When you correct Dubo’s mistakes, it takes notes so you only have to tell it once.

Today, we’re launching Dubo as a Slackbot. Anyone on your team can tag Dubo to join a conversation as a data analyst. Dubo will ask clarifying questions if it’s not sure and take your feedback, both positive and critical.

To try it out, first sign up at and then add it to your Slack workspace here. Use it with a rate limit at no cost. Contact us at if you’d like a higher limit or just to let us know what you think of it.
