Show HN: Pika – Custom ChatGPT-like chatbots for any website

2 points by theionman a year ago

Hello everyone,

My name is Alex and I am the founder a VC-backed startup.

Recently, I’ve used the Open AI API to create an internal chatbot that the team could use. Basically, I wanted to allow the team to ask questions about any company-related information and get answers immediately. That chatbot was trained mainly on our Notion docs, as well as memos and notes taken by the team. Later on, that chatbot was also used by my company’s website, to help our acquisition efforts. The results were great and given that we didn’t have the capability to get back to every customer inquiry from our previous chat widget, the chatbot I created was a huge success.

I ended up creating an entirely new product called Pika so that it can be used on any website.

This is how it works. People login the platform, they add sources of information to the chatbot’s knowledge base (either documents, URLs or free-form text), and click on a button to create a chatbot. Then the chatbot is trained on the sources of information provided; this usually takes less than 30 seconds.

The chatbot now knows everything about the sources of information provided. It can answer any question and every answer can be analyzed and later edited so the chatbot can learn from its mistakes.

Please try it out and let me know if you have any feedback. I am also happy to take any other technical questions you may have.
