YaCy Support GPT (ChatGPT Assistant)

I created a ChatGPT “GPT” to be able to support YaCy users:

This GPT has a copy of all public YaCy information:

  • the complete source code
  • a text extract of the old wiki (sql dump)
  • a text extract of the old YaCy blog (sql dump)
  • a text extract of the old forums (sql dump)
  • a text extract of the new forums (this one)
  • the YaCy home page
  • the full (almost) 20 year long commit history (commit messages only)

All dumps have been cleaned from personal information.

I tried this using a part of the thread dump from an issue in When peer is overloaded with a search queries. Thread dump. · Issue #645 · yacy/yacy_search_server · GitHub and it gave me valuable information:

Maybe this works because it is not even a YaCy problem, more a Solr problem. However, all the simple questions (how to install YaCy, how can I do this and that) can also be answered by this GPT.

Now, I don’t know if anyone of you have a OpenAI account or want to have one. For me this is a very good proof of concept and a motivation to implement the same functionality inside YaCy as well. Using the latest proof-of-concept of adding RAG in YaCy (see Added a RAG Proxy for AI Chat with YaCy · yacy/yacy_search_server@13fbff0 · GitHub) we could work on a YaCy Expert using YaCy.

The YaCy GPT is public, so please try it out and tell me if this is useful for you!


Error it Requires ChatGPT Plus?

Well, unfortunately yes. I did not know this! I hope that OpenAI will change their policy.
However, I can’t imagine a future where we will not be able to provide such a function ourself!

Wow, interesting!

And, Oh The Oracle’s Master, could you ask the Great Oraculum for solving this issue? My prayers go only in this direction. May the consciousness be with you!

Well, I tried. The GPT responded with a very very long answer. One would have to go into detail and find how much hallucination is in the answer, but partly it looks good:

I just got an email from OpenAI: GPTs are now available for all users, not only ChatGPT Plus:

Hi there,

We’re reaching out because you’ve built a GPT and shared it in the GPT store.

We recently announced that all ChatGPT Free users would soon be able to use GPTs in the GPT Store, in line with our mission to make AI technology accessible to all. Today, GPTs in the Store are now available to all ChatGPT users, allowing more than 100 million weekly active users to experience your GPT and the others in the store.

GPTs now use our newest flagship model, GPT-4o. Given the possibility of increased usage and behavioral changes with a new model, we recommend reviewing and testing your GPT to ensure it continues to perform as intended.

Thank you for building GPTs and introducing new ways to learn, have fun, and be more productive with ChatGPT.
