00:17 — Amazon has proposed a new generative AI tool to support performance debugging for databases. It calls the framework Panda, which is a co-pilot or large language model (LLM) agent for databases that users can query using natural language. It challenges the as-yet sketchy capabilities of ChatGPT to address database performance and, instead, proposes pre-trained LLMs to provide contextually accurate answers based on the way database engineers approach debugging.

01: 39 — Initial tests have been successful. I’m looking forward to following the progress of Panda.
