Idea to App Store in 8 DaysFebruary 14, 2023 - 9 minutes read
Dogtown Media recently created Merlin AI, an AI-powered chatbot powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT. In a remarkable feat of engineering, the app was built in just 8 days. Building an app in such a short time frame is no easy task and it begs the question: how was the team able to accomplish this feat?
The team at Dogtown Media relied heavily on OpenAI’s ChatGPT for the development of Merlin AI, leveraging its capabilities for a variety of tasks. From brainstorming ideas and testing concepts to coding, developing, and even writing the app description and other supporting materials, they made use of ChatGTP every step of the way. This enabled them to quickly develop the app while ensuring it was consistent with their vision and goals. The result was an AI-powered chatbot that made history by being built in record time.
The AI-powered chatbot allows users to engage in natural conversations with Merlin, who can understand and respond to questions quickly and accurately. With its cutting-edge Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities, Merlin can provide users with the most up-to-date information on any topic they ask about. The app also provides a Knowledge Graph feature that helps users explore related topics and gain deeper insights into their queries.
In addition, Merlin AI offers a suite of Accelerated Intelligence (AI) tools that allow users to access useful information never before possible. With this suite of tools, it’s like having a research staff at your fingertips, with perfect accuracy and speed every time. You can download Merlin AI in the Google Play Store and iOS Apple Store.
How We Developed Merlin AI in Just 8 Days
We wanted to make sure that our chatbot was as powerful and helpful as possible, so we looked for a way to add AI capabilities to the project. We used ChatGPT, an OpenAI-powered tool designed specifically to help with brainstorming and idea generation.
ChatGPT allowed us to quickly build a framework upon which all of our features could be added, saving us valuable time and resources. By activating the tool’s artificial intelligence engine, we were able to generate ideas in seconds and immediately begin developing them further into features. This made it easy for us to stay focused on creating great user experiences while also making sure our product was technically sound.
Naming Merlin AI
Coming up with a catchy and memorable name for our chatbot was one of the first steps we took in the development process. We knew we needed something that was both easy to remember and reflected our product’s AI capabilities. To help us generate ideas, we again used ChatGPT.
By activating its artificial intelligence engine, we were able to brainstorm dozens of potential names in seconds. After narrowing down the list, we landed on ‘Merlin AI’, which perfectly encapsulated what our product offered–an advanced chatbot powered by OpenAI’s GPT technology. By using ChatGPT for this crucial step in the process, our team was able to save time and resources while coming up with a name that users could easily recognize and recall.
Branding and Color Palette
As part of the branding process, we wanted to create a visual identity that was both visually striking and in-line with our product’s AI capabilities. To help us come up with ideas, we turned to ChatGPT.
By activating its artificial intelligence engine, we were able to brainstorm dozens of potential color palettes and logo designs in seconds. After narrowing down the list, we chose a modern blue and white palette that represented trustworthiness and sophistication – perfect for an AI-powered chatbot like Merlin AI.
UX Design Feedback and Guidance
One of the biggest challenges in UX design is coming up with feedback and guidance that is both helpful and informative. We were able to brainstorm dozens of potential design feedback scenarios in seconds with ChatGTP. We then used this information to develop a comprehensive list of user scenarios that our team could use as guidance when creating new UX designs. We were also able to come up with fresh and innovative ideas for user experience design that would have otherwise been impossible without such a powerful tool.
Coding with Co-Pilot
With so many projects happening all at once, it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing coding landscape. By activating ChatGTP, we were able to develop a set of GitHub co-pilot scripts in seconds. These scripts were designed to automate the process of code review and collaboration, allowing us to quickly assess any changes before pushing code into production.
Choose ASO Keywords
If you want your app to rank highly in the App Store and Google Play, it’s essential to choose the right ASO keywords. To help us optimize our keyword selection process, we turned to ChatGPT. We were able to come up with dozens of potential keywords based on user searches and app features.
We then used this information to create a comprehensive list of keywords that would help make our app more visible in the App Store and Google Play search results. Thanks to ChatGPT, we were able to save time while optimizing our keyword selection process. We were also able to come up with fresh and innovative key words that would have otherwise been impossible without such a powerful tool.
To help us write a compelling description for our app, we turned to ChatGPT. We were able to come up with multiple versions of our app description that highlighted the features and benefits of our product. Thanks to ChatGPT, we were able to save time while also making sure that our app description was clear and concise. What’s more, by using an AI-powered tool like ChatGPT, we were also able to come up with creative descriptions.
To help us write our launch announcements and press releases, we used ChatGPT. We were able to come up with multiple versions of the launch announcements and press releases that highlighted the features and benefits of our product in an interesting and engaging way. This enabled us to save time while also making sure that our launch announcements and press releases captured the attention of potential users with the creative copy.
Merlin AI is an incredible accomplishment of OpenAI’s GPT technology and our team’s efforts that enable users to engage in natural conversations and gain access to useful information with perfect accuracy and speed. It allows individuals to easily ask questions and gain insights into related topics, providing a true “research staff at your fingertips” tool. We are proud of what we have accomplished in just 8 days: creating Merlin AI, a powerful chatbot capable of revolutionizing how those seeking quick answers to their questions can be successful.Tags: artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence app, artificial intelligence app developer, Merlin AI
