HuggingChat: open-source ChatGPT killer?

PLUS: ChatGPT powered glasses

Good morning human brains, welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.

Here’s what’s on the menu today:

  • AI glasses promise to make you charismatic 👓

  • HuggingChat: open-source ChatGPT 💬

  • Google’s Bard can now debug your code 🐞


RizzGPT: real-time charisma as a service

Some kids at Stanford have integrated ChatGPT into a pair of glasses, giving anyone who wears them a real-time flirtation coach.

The glasses generate real-time conversation prompts and use a small screen mounted in front of the glasses to oh-so-subtly pass them to the wearer.

Not obvious at all.

The glasses use OpenAI’s Whisper model to transcribe the conversation, then use the ChatGPT API to figure out what you should say next: increasing your charisma in real-time.

One more thing: the glasses remember who you’re talking to.

By using facial recognition the glasses can recognize who you’re talking to and recall previous conversations.

What this means: these glasses are a lot smarter than Google Glass but equally dorky. So much for charisma.

Until the day someone makes smart glasses look cool we suggest improving your charisma the old-fashioned way: alcohol practice.

HuggingChat: open-source ChatGPT alternative

HuggingChat is an AI chatbot that competes directly with OpenAI's ChatGPT. Just like ChatGPT, HuggingChat can help you do anything from planning date night to writing code. Oh yeah, and it already has millions of users.

The big difference between HuggingChat and ChatGPT is that HuggingChat is open-source. That means anyone can access and modify its source code, create copies, or launch their own version of ChatGPT.

So, is this a ChatGPT killer? Not yet.

  • HuggingChat is less reliable than ChatGPT.

  • It's more likely to give wrong or made-up information.

  • It’s slow to respond.

So what’s the point? The magic of open-source means that anyone in the world can contribute code and data to make HuggingChat better. It might suck today, and it might suck tomorrow, but give open-source developers enough time and this project could become incredible.
