VI Learns from Your Browser

Jonathan Kressaty

Welcome new (and returning) users! For those who are seeing this for the first time, we send a daily email with updates on our progress and this is the 6th day. You can reply directly to this message and discuss ways VI can improve, and we hope you do!

If you’d like to chat with us about VI over Zoom we would love to spend 20 minutes with you, so please use this link to choose a time

VI is like ChatGPT, but VI can read the internet, email and… your browser history

Did you know that you can give VI access to your browser history through Google Chrome? 

Don’t worry, we won’t tell anybody how much time you spend reading about Marvel movies on Wikipedia. What we want is to be able to answer difficult questions about websites and content you’ve read, by helping you recall something from the other day.

Semantic Remembering of previous browsing session content:

As far as “adult” content, we’re adhering to OpenAI policies, which means we aren’t able to search for NSFW content, and you shouldn’t see results. That said, we do recommend keeping your work browsing about work.

From You!

Yuriy Yarovoy (@YuriyYarovoy) met with us today and reminded us how VI actually suggested his own product to him in response to a question:

We also talked about using VI to query a data warehouse and answer questions that would typically require a complicated SQL query. We think this is a pretty rad idea, especially in removing friction around complicated questions found in large datasets. If this is something you’re interested in, reply to this email and let us know!

What’s New

  • Browser Notifications are now an option – receive a system notification when VI answers you back, which is nice when VI needs to do some research and takes a few moments to respond

What’s Next

  • Slack integration is now in internal testing — please reply to this email if you’d like to join the early testing party!
  • Slack + Email = giving VI context around who you’re working with, and we are working on a lightweight CRM concept (which probably won’t look at all like Salesforce) that tracks entities and resolved them across channels. So Elle would be the same person across email, Slack, and other future connected services.
  • Homepage with better demonstration of what’s possible with VI + chat interaction signup

What else would be cool? What else do you wish VI could do?
