A 17-year-old Ukrainian student has created a chatbot that will make life easier for many journalists: how it works and how he did it
Mark Tabatskyi, a first-year student at the Kyiv School of Economics, created a chatbot that could make the work of many journalists easier when he was 17 years old. The service developed by the boy helps to decrypt audio files via Telegram using artificial intelligence.
In an exclusive interview with OBOZ.UA, the young man said that he created the app to help his mother, who works as a journalist for Forbes Ukraine. He succeeded, and the media company acquired the rights to use the resource.
"The idea to create it came about after the honorary rector of the Kyiv School of Economics, Tymofiy Mylovanov, posted on his Facebook page some code snippets for a GPT-3.5 query. It was written in Python, which I already knew at the time. I saw how my mom, who works as a journalist, spent a lot of time transcribing interviews. I was happy to be able to help her," Mark says.
He managed to write the code itself in two days. It can decrypt any audio files, including videos. Moreover, in order to constantly improve the app, the former schoolboy made updates every two weeks, removing and correcting bugs. Today, Mark assures us that the app has done everything it can and is working stably.
