Jepler has posted up a second guide using CircuitPython together with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Subtitled “Press Button, Get Superpower” this guide shows you how to send a request to OpenAI’s servers and stream the response to a display using CircuitPython.
In this guide, you will learn how to use OpenAI’s ChatGPT API to generate text from a prompt using CircuitPython on the Raspberry Pi Pico W.
At startup, or when the arcade button is pressed, a new, original snippet of text will be generated on OpenAI’s servers and shown on the OLED screen connected to your Pico W. Because of the random factor in the text ChatGPT generates, it’s unlikely that two responses would ever be the same.
Since ChatGPT generates plausible text rather than making true statements, use this project only for situations where the truth is unimportant. For example, by default the request to ChatGPT asks for a description of an “unconventional but useful superpower”.
The program supports simple customization by writing prompts in simple human language inside the settings.toml file, so you can let your imagination run wild with original prompts, an enjoy the sometimes-funny, sometimes-nonsensical text generated by the large language model known as ChatGPT.
