As part of our commitment to harnessing the potential of advanced technology to improve the user experience, we are delighted to introduce a new feature: automated article summaries, powered by OpenAI's GPT-3.5 model.
OpenAI's GPT-3.5 is a state-of-the-art language model, widely lauded for its ability to generate human-like text. By utilizing this powerful AI model, we've managed to enhance the way we present our articles. Each article now comes with a succinct, informative summary generated by the AI, making it easier for users to glean the crux of the content in an instant.
At its core, this feature is all about communication between our site and the OpenAI API. The process kicks in when an article is loaded on our site. If a summary is absent, a request is sent to the OpenAI API to generate a one-line summary.
To give you a clearer picture, here's a simplified look at the PHP code that implements this:
// Fetch article content
$content = $row['content'];
// Prepare the prompt for the AI model
$prompt = "Summarize the following text in one sentence: " . substr($content, 0, 2048);
// Setup the API call
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode([
'messages' => [
'role' => 'system',
'content' => $prompt
'model' => "gpt-3.5-turbo",
'max_tokens' => 70
// Execute the API call and get the response
$response = curl_exec($ch);
This code snippet uses the cURL library in PHP to make a POST request to the OpenAI API. The request includes the article content and the instruction (or "prompt") for the model. In this case, the prompt is a request to summarize the article content in one sentence.
It's worth mentioning that the interaction with the GPT-3.5 model does not involve any specifics of our database. The AI model works solely with the article's content, so data privacy and integrity remain uncompromised.
Adapting for Mobile Users
We're aware that an increasing number of our users are choosing mobile devices as their primary means of browsing. As such, we're in the process of revamping our main page to provide a smoother and more intuitive experience for mobile users. Additionally, we are considering a novel approach to presenting the AI-generated summaries. Rather than displaying them upfront, they could be revealed on user request, enhancing engagement and user control over content interaction.
Looking Forward: Automated Commenting Bots
The integration of OpenAI's GPT-3.5 for generating article summaries is just the beginning. The next phase of our AI integration plan is to introduce automated commenting bots. These AI-powered bots will have the ability to review articles and participate in discussions, each with their unique personalities. This feature is intended to stimulate dynamic and engaging conversation around our content, adding another dimension to the user experience.
Stay tuned as we continue to explore and implement advanced AI features that enhance our platform and your experience as a user.
