Groupthink is the place to chat with VI, a GPT-powered AI that reads the internet and connects to your email, browser history, and Slack history to provide personalized responses. Invite your friends and family, collaborate on projects, and make use of Groups and Threads to organize conversations.

Groupthink Can Remember Important Web Content

Today we shipped a new feature that lets you instruct Groupthink to “remember” web pages that are important to you and your team.

This is the first implementation of Groupthink’s ability to “read” long-form text. We think it’s important that an AI working with a team has the same ability as the team members to read, summarize, and recall webpages, documents, and more. This new feature may help you:

  • Prioritize your company handbook in threads with your team
  • Include specific sections of sites in your study group
  • Ensure that documentation for a specific tool is referenced within a team working on the same platform or code task

As an example, suppose I work for GitLab. I’ve asked Groupthink to remember the GitLab Handbook on Developer Evangelism (GitLab makes their company handbook public, and it’s an amazing example of such a document). The handbook for the DevRel team is across 22 unique web pages, and contains tens of thousands of words – way too much to ask ChatGPT or GPT-3 to summarize. 

The conversation on the right demonstrates retrieving details about KPIs for the team followed by a suggested list of potential KPI candidates for next quarter – all of which is supported through the Handbook content. Finally, after asking a question about how to develop KPIs for a team, Groupthink decided to search the internet at large to best answer the request.

Groupthink crawled this content, indexed it, and made it available for reference as it responds in the chat. Groupthink can determine when content in memory is useful to the conversation, find the most relevant sections of content, and then use that to create an answer.

Getting Started

Getting started is easy – simply add a new “Website Content” integration, fill out the URL you’d like Groupthink to read and remember, add a name, and click Save. Your content will be crawled and then referenceable in your group conversations!

Try this out and let us know what you think! We believe this is the beginning of a powerful set of tools, and leads to obvious opportunities to connect to non-public data (think Google Docs, Presentations, etc.). 

What’s New

  • Groupthink can now remember important web pages
  • Responses from Groupthink should be slightly faster, with higher-quality output – we’ve worked on a better way of combining all of your connected data to product even better results
  • You are now an admin of your Onboarding Group, allowing you to add and remove members from that Group

What’s Next

  • Usernames and @replies
  • Collaborating on text documents

As always, we welcome your feedback! Reply to this email or book a time to chat with the founders.
