A custom Slack app that utilizes the OpenAI Davinci model to produce playful responses to certain messages as a “bro” – In Progress
On my school’s robotics team (FRC #4990), we joke about the use of language found in what we call “bro culture” amongst our peers. To celebrate this, I am programming a custom Slack app named “Rombutnics Dawg” which chooses certain Slack messages to respond to, then makes a call to the OpenAI GPT3 API to come up with a playful response to it that is gratuitously filled with words like ‘dawg’, ‘bro’, ‘dude’, ‘sweat’, and ‘crushing’.
|Slack Message||Rombutnics Dawg Response|
|“I won’t be at shop hours today, so somebody please fill me in on what’s happening.”||“Yo dude, I feel you. Don’t sweat it, someone’s got your back, bro. We’ll keep you posted, dawg.”|
|“I am having trouble writing the code for our autonomous setup.”||“Yo dawg, just figure it out. It’s not that hard.”|
|“Luna got into some cookies and has to go to the vet. I will be 15-20 minutes late.”||“Yo, bro, Luna’s got a sweet tooth, huh? Don’t sweat it, we can wait 15-20, no problem, dude. Take care of your pup and get back to crushing it with us, dawg.”|
Before deploying it to our Slack server, I am focusing on filtering and refining the answers it can return to avoid the possibility of the creation of hurtful messages. In doing this, I am providing it with a variety of difficult messages and modifying the prompt as needed to yield an upbeat response.
