OpenAI Assistants

The OpenAI's Assistants API is designed to help developers build powerful AI assistants capable of performing a variety of tasks. PlugBear makes it easy to connect your OpenAI Assistant to Slack, Discord, and other communication channels.

OpenAI Assistants can be integrated into PlugBear by simply copying and pasting an OpenAI API key. In case you haven't built any OpenAI Assistant yet, check Buliding a Proofreading Bot to build a simple one.
