Hello RStudio Community!
I've been thinking about the "ask a question" functionality seen in some enterprise analytical applications such as AnswerRocket, where users can type something like "How were sales of grape soda last quarter?" and this generates a query that then generates content in the application for them to consume. From the business user's perspective, they just type a normal question and then see a plot or table that answers it. That's an awesome user experience.
I think I understand what it would take to code this out with R/python in a shiny application, but I assume I'm not the first to be curious about this or the first to try it, hence this pot. I'm not seeing any posts about it in google searches, so I thought I'd ask here!
Has anyone tried to build this type of functionality before? If so, did it work? Do you have any suggestions or pointers (even if you haven't tried it)? Would love a discussion on this topic!
