In the newest effort by tech companies to create generative AI tools, chat app Discord announced on Thursday that it would roll out new artificial intelligence features that can summarize lengthy chats or add decorations to a user’s avatar.
Discord, which enables group chats via text, video, and audio, announced it would update the Clyde bot with OpenAI technology. According to the business, Discord users can ask the AI-powered Clyde to provide trivial answers, assist with meeting scheduling, or suggest songs.
Users will be able to “remix” the avatars of their friends using another AI function that uses generative picture models. For instance, to commemorate a person’s birthday, the feature might put a crown on their head in their profile picture.
The AI tool will be able to summarize the dialogue if users have been away from Discord and have missed a stream of messages, allowing users to rapidly return to certain points in the message thread to catch up on the chat. According to the company, the feature will start to roll out in a few select Discord groups the following week.
In order to enhance a current content moderation tool that helps automatically reject damaging or undesired communications from discussions, Discord announced it would also explore OpenAI technology. According to the firm, the updated technology can flag communications for moderators and comprehend the context of the dialogue.
