Sketch Description

Sketch is an AI-powered code-writing assistant designed specifically for pandas users. It understands the context of your data, which significantly enhances the relevance of its suggestions. The tool uses efficient approximation algorithms, also known as data sketches, to quickly summarize your data and feed that information into language models. This process involves summarizing the columns and writing these summary statistics as additional context to be used by the code-writing prompt. What's cool about Sketch is that it's super easy to use. You don't need to add a plugin to your IDE, just install it and you're good to go. It's as simple as importing sketch, and then using the `.sketch` extension on any pandas dataframe. It even has a basic question-answer system, `.sketch.ask`, that can answer questions based on the summary statistics and description of the data.
