GPT-based Q&A bot based on YCombinator's YouTube channel
First off, here’s a link to AskYC: https://transcribe.param.codes/ask/yc
In short, AskYC is a GPT-based Q&A bot that’s based on every video on the YCombinator YouTube channel (except for a few very new ones). I spent the weekend hacking together its final parts after I’d been working on it for the last 2 weeks with Suyash.
Here are a few example questions you can ask:
“How do I get a startup idea?”
“How do I validate my startup idea?”
“What is product market fit?”
“How did Stripe make its first hire?”
The outputs are quite nice, mostly because the YouTube content is really good. For example, here’s a screenshot:
I transcribed these videos using Transcriber and then generated the embeddings for these transcriptions using llama-index. I’ll jump into the technical details in a future post, but in the meanwhile, if you have any feedback or even any ideas for something similar, please let me know! Now that I’ve done it for one channel, theoretically, it should be possible to do for any youtube channel, the only constraint being money.
