How to make your own AI chatbot with GPT-3 (world’s most advanced AI)

by satcit

Step 1: Sign up at https://openai.com/api/ and you will receive your own personal API key. We will later enter this key into our algorithm.

Step 2: Install Node Red on your computer or server. I use Node Red on my Contabo VPS server so that the service is available to me 24*7.

Step 3 : Add this node to your Node Red palette.

node-red-contrib-telegrambot ( node-red-contrib-telegrambot (node) – Node-RED )

The simplest method is to go to Manage Palette>Install and search for  node-red-contrib-telegrambot 

Step 4 : Import the below flow to your Node Red

The imported flow should look like this.


Step 5 : Create a new telegram bot using BotFather on Telegram and enter your bot API token in the telegram bot node. Also in the ‘set telegram message node’, replace YOUR_CHAT_ID with you telegram chat ID. This ID can be obtained from IDBot on telegram.

Step 6 : In the ‘set payload and headers’ node, replace YOUR_API_KEY with your OpenAI API key.

Now you can go to your newly created telegram bot, press ‘start’ and start chatting with GPT-3, the world’s most advanced AI available for public use.

The setup should be up and running now.

Do you replace everything in the single quotes ,’Bearer YOUR_API_KEY’ , with the openAI key or just the “YOU_API_KEY”. I have tried replacing both but don’t seem to get a response from within telegram. The node-red flow does seem to register that it’s seeing requests from my telegram bot when I type to it.

You have to replace YOUR_API_KEY only. ‘Bearer’ should remain there. Here is a screenshot of my setup. For obvious reasons, I have erased part of my API key in the screenshot.

I am not seeing the telegram bot node to put my bot api token into

Hi.. Double click on either the telegram sender or receiver node and click on ‘Add new telegram bot’. Hope this helps you.

Im getting a “message text is empty error in my console”

Many thanks. I got this working. Worth following node-red tutorial if you have difficulty. One can add a debug node to check each node is working correctly. Am now interesting in modifying this flow by adding speech-to-text and text-to-speech in order to get desktop AI comms working. One can use Watson nodes for this but this is only free for first 1000(?) words/month. However Windows has built in speech-to-text (Windows key + H) so it should be a simple matter to write a program to send this to a file as input to node-red. Can’t get the node-red file watcher to work.
