Glide AI

Build custom AI apps powered by your data.

Artificial Intelligence is driven by Large Language Models (LLMs). These machine learning models learn and adapt algorithms and statistical models to analyze and draw inferences from patterns in data.

Glide AI offers automated and user-triggered data transformations, such as converting audio to text, generating new text, extracting text from images, and converting text to boolean, choice, date, or number formats. These capabilities enable advanced data manipulation and feature-rich app development without coding.

All of Glide’s AI features can be used as columns or actions, and they can be added in the data editor, the layout editor, or in the action editor. You can leverage Glide AI to unlock your data and transform the way you work.

A note on the accuracy of AI responses

Glide AI's models generate answers to the best of the model’s capabilities. The accuracy of these answers is not guaranteed, and we recommend reviewing the results for accuracy.

Instructions and Inputs


Most Glide AI features have an Instructions field. Instructions are the how of Glide AI: how will the response be shaped? This is where you can provide specific directions to guide the response you get from your automation. The field is optional, and if you leave it blank the feature will use whatever Glide’s default instructions are. By adding your own instructions, you can put Glide AI to work in exactly the way you need for your specific situation.

Instructions are the way to seed the AI with the personality or the context you want it to consider when responding to the message. The default response is generic, polite, and concise. You can get more from Glide AI and tweak the flavor of the response if you specify the instructions: adjust the tone, format (bullet points, numbered list, array, comma-separated values), length, code, and more.


Most Glide AI features have a required Input field. The input is the what for Glide AI: what input will the feature be considering as it shapes a response? What question will it answer? What text will it complete?

Depending which feature you use, the input can take many different formats. You can start from scratch with a new data table, or use your existing data in input fields to combine your dataset with the power of Glide AI.

Structured Responses

Often when we think about AI we think about what it can do with text: completing prompts, generating emails, answering user questions, and more. These are all impactful actions for your business, but with Glide AI, you can also create structured responses from your existing data. With features like Text to Boolean, Text to Choice, Text to Date, and Text to Number, you can use AI to analyze unstructured text and return valuable data that you can repurpose throughout your app.
