OpenAI’s wildly popular AI chatbot ChatGPT can spit out some truly fantastic content, ranging from realistic college essays to source code and even real estate listings. However, it left Dutch data journalist Wouter van Dijke wanting more. The self-proclaimed “Twitter bot enthusiast” decided to solve the big question: “What if ChatGPT became a cat?”
“ChatGPT is boring,” he wrote on his GitHub. “I want a cat to answer my questions. “So I built CatGPT!”
CatGPT, as its name suggests, allows you to ask a “pawtifurcial intelligence” pretty much anything you’d want to ask a real-life cat. CatGPT is designed to answer questions just like a cat would. What sets CatGPT apart from other language models is its unique personality and humor, which are inspired by the behavior of cats. CatGPT, like cats, can be playful, aloof, and cryptic at times. This makes interacting with CatGPT a fun and entertaining experience, much like playing with a cat.
While the project is a fun and tongue-in-cheek take on ChatGPT, it was more of a self-directed tutorial on how to build a basic website that appears and operates just like the actual thing. “It took some back and forth to get something looking alright, but it was quite useful to create a basic structure for the web page,” van Dijke wrote.
In conclusion, CatGPT is a unique and entertaining language model that answers questions as a cat would. CatGPT has you covered whether you’re looking for a virtual pet or just want to waste your time. So why not give it a try and see what kind of response you get? Or, in CatGPT’s words, “Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow meow, meow meow, meow meow.”
