I wrote a short essay yesterday titled Are LLMs Databases?, and posted it up here too. Ultimately I don't think there's any real comparison, but it's still a useful question to think about a bit.

In more practical news, I've been thinking about how using LLMs to generate SQL seems an especially potent way for existing applications to integrate LLMs and AI in a way that’s actually useful.

Users ask the questions they care about, without having to wait for you to build the answer. The most popular questions can become full features. I'll likely be exploring this more in the future.
