Raw Query is a free online database tool which lets you retrieve data from a database using natural language. It is basically an AI based database query tool. It offers you a chat like interface where you can type a query in text and then it will understand it and will return the matching data. With the help of this tool, you can actually talk to your database for free.
For now, Raw Query supports MySQL and PostgreSQL as DB systems to query data. There is an example database that it comes with. But you can always add your own database if you want to. Just configure a database with the server and user and credentials and then start asking questions in the chat. If the result is tabular then you can export that in CSV format as well.

In order to get started with it, you will first have to create a free account on its main website. After that, you can proceed with the database configuration.
As I mentioned earlier already that there is an example database. You can check that out. Or, you can add your own database to query as well. Click on the “+” sign and then enter the database connection details right there.
Now, finally, you can start querying the data. Just type something related to the tables in the database. It will take some time and then will show you the results. If you don’t know what is the structure of the database, you can just click on database icon to see the schema view.

It will understand the context and will generate a SQL statement internally and will run it against the currently active database. This is a simple as that.
