Open Assistant is now concluded as a project, so we can no longer use the interactive online chatbot. However, the source code and the model remains accessible through GitHub. We used HuggingChat (LLaMA 2) to generate some HACKnight challenges based on the Open Assistant's README.

{ hacknight challenges }

Create a simple chatbot that responds to basic user queries using pre-defined answers. The chatbot should be able to understand basic natural language inputs and respond accordingly.

Implement a rating system for the chatbot's responses. Users should be able to rate the helpfulness of the chatbot's responses, and the ratings should be used to improve the chatbot's performance over time.

Implement a reinforcement learning algorithm to train the chatbot to generate better responses over time. The algorithm should use the ratings from the intermediate challenge as feedback to improve the chatbot's performance. Additionally, implement a mechanism to allow users to provide additional feedback, such as suggestions for alternative responses, to further improve the chatbot's performance.

Glorious purpose

Europe needs a viable alternative to ChatGPT! We hope this project continues in another form soon.
