What Actually is a Fun Chatbot?

A fun chatbot develops interesting conversations by telling a joke and asking customers about their preferences through emotional talk. Fun bots can be therapy bots, financial bots, e-commerce bots, etc.


Hector is a fun bot that tells jokes, plays hangman, spouts koans, and gives awesome drink recipes among other conversations.

Open AI’s NLP model called ChatGPT which interacts in a conversational way. ChatGPT can answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests. ChatGPT is a sibling model to InstructGPT, which is trained to follow instructions in a prompt and provide a detailed response. As of early 2023, one issue with ChatGPT is that if it does not have an answer it will spew garbage.

Google is very concerned about ChatGPT being used for search. Google said it will be launching new AI based search features in 2023.

    This AI-based search engine provides two types of answers. it does provide its source which is something GPT is missing. I asked it how it works it did not understand I was asking about and only give the definition of perplexity.
    This no-ad-based search engine says it uses AI to customize your search.  When I asked it how it works it did not understand I was asking about and did not give a good answer


Bard is an AI chatbot developed by Google AI. Like ChatGPT, Bard is capable of generating text, translating languages, and providing creative content like poems, songs, and stories in natural and engaging conversations. Bard is meant to be a complimentary feature of Google Search, and unlike ChatGPT it can provide more accurate and up-to-date information. 


Developed by Microsoft off of GPT-4, Bing is an AI chatbot built into the original Bing search engine. Bing’s focus is on factual and accurate information, with the end goal being to improve your time spent using the search engine. It is only available on the Microsoft Edge browser. 

HuggingFace Chat

AI startup Hugging Face has released its own alternative to ChatGPT. Based on the 30B OpenAssistant Llama models, HuggingChat is a fun, open-source digital assistant with fewer filters than ChatGPT. Users can craft emails, ask for help with storytelling, create cover letters, and much more. While the bot is fun to use, it frequently gives out wrong and nonsensical answers and often forgets previous questions asked.

This is Meta’s latest conversational AI bot released in the summer of 2022. I suspect they are gathering data this way because they do not have platforms like Amazon, Alexa, or Google to gather all the data needed for conversational AI. Notice how the bot always relates to the last question even if you ask a question unrelated to the last question.
