Build AI Companion

From the realms of science fiction movies to reality, AI chatbots are no longer a novelty, but rather a growing trend. One of the recent developments in AI is the creation of an AI girlfriend chatbot. This model, built with GPT technology, can simulate human-like conversations, offering a unique interactive experience. And surprisingly, it's possible to create one for yourself. In this blog post, we're going to guide you on how to create your own AI girlfriend chatbot using auto-GPT.

The Concept Behind an AI Girlfriend Chatbot

The AI girlfriend chatbot is a fascinating concept, allowing the user to interact with a simulated personality. Influencers have even monetized this concept, creating their personal AI chatbots capable of conversing with thousands of people at the same time, which is a testament to the technology's scalability.

Snapchat influencer Caryn Marjorie launched an AI chatbot, CarynAI, with the intent to combat loneliness among her 1.8 million followers. Developed by Forever Voices, this chatbot offers private, personalized conversations, stirring debates about the ethics of companion chatbots. She earned over $70K in a week.

The interactions with these chatbots feel quite genuine. The AI girlfriend responds to inputs contextually, has emotional undertones, and can offer responses that align with the user's emotional state. For instance, if you're tired, the AI might suggest activities for relaxation.

However, with such a service often comes a price tag. The good news is, you can create an AI girlfriend for free, by using GPT technology.

Building Blocks: GPT Language Model and Text-to-Speech

To build your AI girlfriend chatbot, you'll primarily need two components:

  1. A large language model like GPT, which will simulate the conversational aspect of the chatbot.
  2. A high-quality text-to-speech model to give the AI a voice.

To develop this, we'll be using Python and a platform named 'laning'.

Preparing the Development Environment

Ensure you've installed 'laning' and OpenAI on your computer. Create a new folder called 'AI girlfriend'. In this folder, create two files, one named '.env' (for storing credentials and API keys), and '' (the Python app we're going to run).

Importing Libraries

Start off by importing the required libraries in ''. These libraries include laning, OpenAI, Flask, requests, and others. Make sure to load the API keys from the '.env' file.

Creating the Prompt

The next step is creating a prompt that will guide GPT to behave like a girlfriend. Consider using a platform like Flow GPT to get suitable prompts. Once you've defined your prompt, pass it to the GPT model to get a response.

Setting up a Basic Web UI

To test the responses, you'll need a simple user interface. Use Flask, a Python library that allows you to create a web app, for this purpose. Create a function that will be called when a message is sent. This function will pass the message to the GPT model and display the response.

Giving the AI a Voice

To make the AI chatbot more interactive, you'll need a text-to-speech library. We recommend using ElevenLabs as it creates high-quality machine-generated audio. Simply sign up and get an API key. In the API playground, understand the HTTP request you'll send to ElevenLabs to get an audio file back.

Testing the AI Girlfriend Chatbot

Once you've set up the text-to-speech, integrate it into the Flask app. Now, whenever a message is sent, the AI will respond in text and audio format. Run the '' file and test the chatbot.

Tweaking the AI Girlfriend Chatbot

Depending on your preferences, you can adjust the prompt to make the AI behave differently. Play around with it until you're satisfied with the responses.
