Generate Embeddings

Phoenix supports any type of dense embedding generated for almost any type of data.

But what if I don't have embeddings handy? Well, that is not a problem. The model data can be analyzed by the embeddings Auto-Generated for Phoenix.

What are Auto-Embeddings?

We support generating embeddings for you for the following types of data:

  • CV - Computer Vision

  • NLP - Natural Language

  • Tabular Data - Pandas Dataframes

We extract the embeddings in the appropriate way depending on your use case, and we return it to you to include in your pandas dataframe, which you can then analyze using Phoenix.

Auto-Embeddings works end-to-end, you don't have to worry about formatting your inputs for the correct model. By simply passing your input, an embedding will come out as a result. We take care of everything in between.

How to enable Auto-Embeddings?

If you want to use this functionality as part of our Python SDK, you need to install it with the extra dependencies using pip install arize[AutoEmbeddings].

Supported models

You can get an updated table listing of supported models by running the line below.

from arize.pandas.embeddings import EmbeddingGenerator


We are constantly innovating, so if you want other models included, reach out to us at or in our community Slack!

How do they work?

Auto-Embeddings is designed to require minimal code from the user. We only require two steps:

  1. Create the generator: you simply instantiate the generator using EmbeddingGenerator.from_use_case() and passing information about your use case, the model to use, and more options depending on the use case; see examples below.

  2. Let Arize generate your embeddings: obtain your embeddings column by calling generator.generate_embedding() and passing the column containing your inputs; see examples below.

Use Case Examples

Arize expects the dataframe's index to be sorted and begin at 0. If you perform operations that might affect the index prior to generating embeddings, reset the index as follows:

df = df.reset_index(drop=True)
from arize.pandas.embeddings import EmbeddingGenerator, UseCases

df = df.reset_index(drop=True)

generator = EmbeddingGenerator.from_use_case(
df["image_vector"] = generator.generate_embeddings(
