Activating the Power of AI in LabCollector
  • First of all, head to the Admin section, then find and click on Setup, finally explore the Integrations tab, under which you can find the dedicated section for Artificial Intelligence (as shown in the screenshot below).



Once you click on the Artificial Intelligence tab, you’ll encounter different AI options, each offering unique functionalities. Let’s break down the options and the steps to activate them:

1) OpenAI:

  • Generate API Key: If you plan to use OpenAI, you’ll need an API key. This key is like a secret code that allows LabCollector to connect to your OpenAI account. You can generate this key from your OpenAI account settings.
  • Allocate OpenAI Credit: OpenAI operates on a credit system. To use OpenAI functionalities within LabCollector, you need to allocate a certain amount of credit to your OpenAI account.
  • Input the generated API key in the corresponding tab, click on “save” and turn on the AI by switching ON the button located to the right.


2) Speech-to-text:

  • For Speech-to-Text, LabCollector allows you to choose a specific transcript model. Think of this as selecting the ‘voice’ that will be transcribing your spoken words.
  • Specify the speech-to-text processor – whether None or OpenAI. This determines the underlying technology used for the transcription process.
  • You will need to activate an AI integration account (OpenAI) before using this option.


3) Text Enhancer:

  • For the Text Enhancer, you again choose a specific transcript model, determining the ‘style’ or ‘intelligence’ of the enhancement, such as “gpt-4”.
  • Similar to Speech-to-Text, specify the processor and activate an AI integration account before using the Text Enhancer with OpenAI.



Once activated, an AI symbol will appear next to the voice recording icon, which you will find inside ELNLSM and within your records’ comments, simply start speaking into the mic and the AI will handle the rest, your spoken observations will turn into written notes with high accuracy, which you can then copy/paste, modify, or save them exactly as they are.
