Chatsonic is a conversational artificial intelligence that promises to be an improved ChatGPT rival with features aimed at content creators. The technology was developed by Writesonic, a company that has been operating in the AI market for some years now, and uses Google as a source of information for its modeling.
The differential of this solution is the constant updating of data: as it is based on the main search engine in the world, it is always up to date with recent events. In addition, the chatbot shows the sources of the answers, which helps to give more credibility to the information.
The algorithm was trained with deep learning technique and natural language processing. As a result, it is capable of interpreting texts and generating coherent responses after consulting solid databases on the web.
The interface is similar to ChatGPT in presenting a field of questions and an area dedicated to the intellectual production of AI. The answers are generated based on the query made and written in a humanized way.
You can refine the answers by choosing the location or whether the answer will be shorter or more detailed. You can also disable the use of Google data if you want more generic answers and enable memory for contextualized answers.
A "pumped" ChatGPT
According to the developers, Chatsonic's focus is the corporate market, with a strong emphasis on professionals who deal with creative writing, digital marketing and e-commerce. There are even exclusive content production tools aimed at this audience, which can give a more informative or more commercial touch to the generated texts.
It is also possible to use a "personas" mechanism, which will adopt different tone of voice and ways of speaking according to the chosen personality. There are 13 options available that should impact the texts produced: astrologer, coach, comedian, accountant, poet, personal trainer and even travel guide. If you don't want any kind of targeting, just keep the "General AI" option activated and that's it.
Another advantage of the service is the ability to recognize voice commands and even generate audio from texts. The software has a database of human voices to generate your own, with a certain naturalness and without needing a flesh-and-blood voice actor.
There is also an image generator from texts. The user must describe the desired elements, as accurately as possible, and style the image for the technology to work its magic. The AI connects to Stabble Diffusion or DALL-E 2 to generate the images right there, without needing to be redirected to other sites.
Is Chatsonic paid?
Unfortunately, Chatsonic has a limitation of 25 daily questions in the free version. When the usage ends, you will need to wait until the next day to use it again or subscribe to the paid plan.
This amount is great for ordinary users, but it may be too little for those who need to use generative AI in a more professional way. For those interested in expanding usage, there are paid plans starting at US$19 (about R$104, at the current price) per month, with progressive discounts for annual plans. What changes in the plans basically is the amount of supported words.
It is worth remembering that even though it is an improved version of ChatGPT, Chatsonic is not immune to errors. He also slips up on some answers because he can pick up wrong information from websites. Even so, as it is based on Google sources, there is the possibility of checking the data or simply refuting it, if you do not trust the website indicated.
ChatGPT has been very successful since its launch at the end of November, but it is a "horrible product" , according to the creator and CEO of Open AI, Sam Altman. Last week, ChatGPT Plus arrived in Brazil costing BRL 105 per month , but still without cool features like Chatsonic.
