Creating a intelligent virtual assistant like J.A.R.V.I.S. using GPT-3 in Python.

Intelligent Virtual Assistants (IVA)

Intelligent Virtual Assistants are AI-powered agents that can produce customised responses by pulling information from different contexts. An IVA uses voice inquiries and natural language processing (NLP) to execute a variety of helpful tasks.

Some popular virtual assistants you might be familiar with:

  • Google Assistant
  • Siri
  • Amazon Alexa
  • Cortana
  • J.A.R.V.I.S. (Iron Man)
  • Skynet (Terminator)
  • HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey)
  • ...

J.A.R.V.I.S. clone

My inspiration to experiment with virtual assistants came, in addition to having a keen interest in AI, from the AI assistants in famous movies like Iron Man and Blade Runner 2049. So I tried to make a version of J.A.R.V.I.S. from Iron Man with a female voice.

Technologies used

Virtual assistants that may be accessible through online chat in a specialised way are frequently referred to as "chatbots." But this is more than a chatbot. It implements the OpenAI API model called text-davinci-002. This is the most capable GPT-3 model that can understand and generate natural language.

Example outputs

Some examples of the voice recognition with the OpenAI response

Unfortunately, I can only display the input and output of the GPT-3 speech recognition. Because GPT-3 is a paid NLP model, I would like to avoid exploits (and the emptying of my bank account) by implementing a working example on here. BUT you can always clone or fork my version from Github and try it out with your own API key (first 3 months you get $18 in free credit).

When provided a prompt, the OpenAI API will answer almost instantaneously with a relevant response.

It can even give you a little bit of history...

...or work out a math problem.
