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.
Welcome new (and returning) users! For those who may be seeing this email for the first time, we are the founders of Groupthink and we send this daily email with our progress.
Over the coming days, you’ll see emails and the Groupthink app move to groupthink.com. If you run into any issues or have any questions, please feel free to reply to this email.
You may have noticed that we’ve moved this email list to a real email marketing platform (customer.io if you’re curious; a favorite of ours). We will continue to send a daily update, and will also start a weekly “digest” email summarizing the week – this will make it a easier to control marketing emails from the Groupthink team.
When we first started thinking about how to apply new language model technology to re-world problems, one of the roles we thought an AI could play was as a virtual “analyst”. We believed we could use the language model to convert requests in “human” language into instructions a computer could understand.
On suggestion from a VI user, we decided to prototype this with Google Analytics as the first “queryable” integration.
Coming This Week: Query Google Analytics 4 with VI
Later this week you’ll be able to connect to a Google Analytics 4 property and ask VI questions about your web analytics data. We’ll share more details when this feature is available, but in the meantime, here are some examples of what you’ll be able to accomplish:
We’re also thinking about more advanced questions, including asking VI to filter results and compare different date ranges. Have a specific question you wish GA4 could answer? Reply to this email and let us know, and we’ll see what VI can do!
Keeping Data in Groups Secure
We’ve thought about how to keep your data secure when you’re in a group as well. As you add Integrations to Groupthink, we’ll keep track of who has access to the “Workspace” your Integration belongs to. If everyone in a Group has access to the Workspace, they’ll be able to access any attached Integrations. If any one person in the Group does not have access to the Workspace, VI will not be able to query any of that Workspace’s Integrations from that Group.
