Metadata Extraction and Augmentation w/ Marvin#

This notebook walks through using Marvin to extract and augment metadata from text. Marvin uses the LLM to identify and extract metadata. Metadata can be anything from additional and enhanced questions and answers to business object identification and elaboration. This notebook will demonstrate pulling out and elaborating on Sports Supplement information in a csv document.

Note: You will need to supply a valid open ai key below to run this notebook.
