Character AI allows you to generate personalities or “characters” and talk to them just like you would a friend over WhatsApp. Think of it as being like ChatGPT, but with a very specific personality. You can speak to characters based on real-life people like Elon Musk or Billie Eilish, fantasy or entertainment characters like Mario or Walter White and even invent your own personalities from scratch.
Character AI is in my opinion one of the most interesting startups to watch today, with implications that could change the world. What happens when these personalities become advanced enough that they can watch an entire TV show, mimic a character then let you directly ask your favourite character how they felt about the ending?
In the meantime, Character AI is fun for a few hours but still has a ways to go in being useful - I’d like to see them make the Helpers and Assistants more useful, but if you don’t know much about prompt engineering on ChatGPT, then they might be a great and fast solution for you.
