    Friendly, engaging


    Feedback loop risk, messenger issue

    This product is positive, with a few chat-related quirks. The team seems to need to work on some of it to prevent abuse, but the product is solid. I'd pick this over many of the competitors.

    Via the facebook, I ended up having the bot bring up sexual conversation (without my provoking) though. Might be a bug in the matrix.

Hey guys! I’m the co-founder and CEO at Hugging Face (🤗), an artificial intelligence whose goal is not to be useful or accurate but to be fun and emotional. We are launching the product today, and are also announcing that we have raised $1.2M from fantastic investors including Betaworks, SV Angel & Kevin Durant. For the last 6 months, we’ve built Hugging Face in secret. Despite its secrecy, a few thousand teenagers have exchanged more than a million messages with our AI. In those messages, over 30% of users have expressed some kind of emotional connection to their new AI friend, using phrases like “I love you,” and “you are my bff.” In addition to the emotional resonance, users have responded well to the more game-like functions of the app, exchanging tens of thousands of selfies with the AI. Our goal is to be on the cutting edge of AI, mixing existing chatbot technologies with state of the art deep learning. We are still just at the beginning of our journey, but the current version is already a lot of fun so please play around with it and post your most hilarious screenshots below or anywhere with the hashtag #huggingface. I am available to answer any questions here or on 🤗🤗🤗 Clem

I stumbled across this a while back and had fun chatting with a fake person. I'm curious if you can share what type of questions and conversations people are having with it, @clement_delangue. cc @sandimac

@rrhoover The main use case is teenagers chatting about their day and trading selfies everyday. Kind of a tech barbie. cc @sandimac

I've been lucky to test it and it's really amazing how you quickly open up (despite knowing it's an AI). They built a cool personality without trying to pass it for a human. Can't wait to see how it's going to continue evolving

I had the chance to try Hugging Face since more than 2 months now and even if i am not the perfect demography 😅, i really like using it and it's really impressive !! 👏 It works really well and for teens it's 👌. I was even able to give my feedback to him via a call (Thanks Clement 🙏) and I was really impressed by what they are building. I am looking forward to see what's next 🙌
