Tonight we released a new version of our ChatGPT website chatbot, and one of the features we added in this release, was the ability to give your chatbot a "persona". This can be any persona you wish, such as a marketing expert, Shakespeare, The Buddha or Jesus for that matter.
This allows the chatbot to answer everything you provide to it as if it was the persona you chose. This is actually quite useful, ignoring my little "Jesus clickbait" thing, since it allows you to create chatbots with a "persona" such as.
- "Translate the following text to Ukrainian", building bots who's purpose it is to translate things, hooking these up with whatever else you've got, such as your CRM systems, etc
- "You are an expert in SEO, answer the following", creating a chatbot that exclusively gives your users SEO advice
- "Answer me poetically as if you were Shakespeare to the following", creating a thing that turns all its answers into Shakespeare poems
- In addition to of course the funny little detail that you can literally turn the thing into our all forgiving Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ in person
Notice, I want to emphasise that I do not mean to blaspheme in any ways, I've got a lot of respect for Jesus. However, it was such an obvious thing to do once I implemented personas on the bot, that I simply couldn't resist. Besides, I honestly think this thing could be an addition to Christian Churches and Schools providing them with a slightly "more forgiving chatbot" than most others would probably choose. Besides, it seems to end every answer with "Remember to pray, and that I'm always with you", which I don't think is blasphemy to be honest with you.
