It’s a day that many singletons dread, but love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is finally almost here.
While many people use the occasion to pen love letters to their partner, others struggle to express their emotions on paper.
Thankfully, help is at hand this year, in the form of a new AI bot that will write your Valentine’s Day card for you.
The free bot pens the love letter within seconds – and all you have to do is tell it who you’re writing to, and give it some basic information about the things you love about them.
The Valentine’s Day bot has been created by US-based CopyAI, and is powered by technology called GPT-3.
GPT-3 was trained to write letters based on examples of Valentine’s Day Cards, according to Chris Lu, co-founder of CopyAI.
Speaking to MailOnline, he explained: ‘I give it a few examples of Valentine’s Day Cards and the AI does the rest.
‘So the examples are in the same format (context), then result. The AI is trained by giving it examples of Valentine’s Day cards.’
To use the tool, head over to Valentinesday.ai, enter your email address, and then you can have the tool start composing your message.
Tell it who you’re writing to, and give it some basic information regarding the attributes you love about your partner.
After a few seconds, you’ll have an entire series of messages to choose from.
You can either select a message to use verbatim, or you can copy it into an external text editor to use as the basis for crafting a love note of your own.
The TYI team tested the AI bot, entering ‘My boyfriend’ as the recipient, and ‘height, sense of humour and thoughtfulness’ as the attributes.
Some of the results were as expected and solely focused on the attributes mentioned.
’I love you for your face, your sense of humour, your thoughtfulness. You are the most amazing man I have ever met.’
Another read, ’You are my knight in not very shining armour.’ (Whatever that means) ’I love all the simple things about you, your face, your sense of humour, your thoughtfulness,’ it continued.
This isn’t the first time that an AI bot has turned its hand at writing.
In 2017, an online AI called InspiroBot was launched, that claimed to generate an unlimited amount of ‘unique inspirational quotes’.
The bot generated phrases superimposed on images of animals, nature, space and other soothing backgrounds, with quotes such as ‘Without lives there can be no humiliation’ and ‘Cats are going to fill the world with pain.’
While the bot’s website doesn’t explain how the AI works, it is likely a simplistic AI because it generates dark, at times nonsensical quotes such as ‘If you want to get somewhere in life, you have to try to be dead.’
