If you are interested in learning how to use GPT to answer questions about various data sources, such as scientific papers, Google Docs, GitHub repositories, and more, you might want to check out the demo of PapersGPT created by Jesse Zhang. PapersGPT is a web app that allows you to connect a data source on the left and then ask questions about it on the right. The app uses OpenAI's API to query GPT with the data source and generate answers in a terminal-themed interface. You can also use your own OpenAI API key if you want to try it out.
