Accessing Model Settings

To begin customizing your chatbot's AI model and personality, you'll need to access the Model Settings within the Botgenuity platform. This section will provide you with a clear path to reach these settings and start the personalization process.

Step-by-Step Navigation

  1. Log in to your Botgenuity account: Start by signing into your Botgenuity account using your credentials.
  2. Select your chatbot: Once you've logged in, you will be directed to your dashboard, where you will see a list of your chatbots. Select the chatbot you wish to customize from the list.
  3. Locate the Settings Menu: On the left sidebar of your dashboard, you will find the main navigation menu. Look for the 'Settings' option, which will lead you to various configurable aspects of your chatbot.
  4. Access Model Settings: Within the 'Settings' menu, locate and click on the 'Model' submenu item. This action will direct you to the Model Settings page where you can begin the customization process.

Model Settings Interface

Upon accessing the Model Settings page, you will be presented with a form that contains several fields and options:

  • Prompt Field: Here, you can input a customized prompt that will define your chatbot's personality and style. The text you enter will serve as a guide for the AI model, influencing how the chatbot constructs its responses and interacts with users.

  • Temperature Slider: This control allows you to adjust the creativity level of the AI's responses. By moving the slider, you can set the temperature to a higher value for more varied and spontaneous replies, or to a lower value for more predictable and consistent communication.

  • Model Selection: You will see options to select between different AI models, such as GPT-3.5-turbo, GPT-4 and GPT-4-turbo. Each model has its strengths, and you can choose one based on the balance between performance, cost, and the specific needs of your chatbot application.

It's important to take the time to familiarize yourself with these settings, as they will significantly impact the way your chatbot interacts with users. The next sections will delve deeper into each of these components, providing you with the knowledge to make informed decisions about your chatbot's configuration.

Customizing Chatbot Personality

Creating a chatbot with a unique personality is essential for engaging and retaining users. The Model Settings in Botgenuity allow you to customize your chatbot's personality to align with your brand's voice and the expectations of your audience. Here's how you can use the prompt field and temperature settings to shape your chatbot's character.

Understanding the Prompt Field

The prompt field is a powerful tool in defining the personality of your chatbot. It acts as an initial set of instructions that the AI model uses to generate responses.

  • Crafting Your Prompt: Consider the traits you want your chatbot to embody. Do you want it to be formal or casual? Should it have a sense of humor or be strictly professional? The prompt should encapsulate these personality traits in a clear and concise manner.

  • Examples and Best Practices:

    • For a friendly and supportive chatbot, you might use a prompt like, "Always be polite and encouraging, offering help with a warm tone."
    • For a professional and informative chatbot, your prompt could be, "Provide factual and concise information, maintaining a formal and respectful demeanor."

Adjusting Creativeness with Temperature

The temperature setting adjusts the variance in the AI's responses, affecting how predictable or creative the chatbot's replies are.

  • Low Temperature: Setting a low temperature will result in more consistent and focused responses. This is ideal for scenarios where accuracy and a narrow scope of dialogue are important.

  • High Temperature: A higher temperature allows for more diverse and creative responses. This can be beneficial for engaging users in more open-ended conversations or when a touch of creativity is needed.

Applying Changes

Once you have crafted your prompt and adjusted the temperature to your liking, it's important to save your settings:

  • Save: Look for the 'Save' or 'Apply' button on the Model Settings page. Ensure that you save your changes before exiting the page.

  • Test Your Chatbot: After saving your changes, it's crucial to test the chatbot to see how it interacts with actual users. This will give you a sense of whether the personality adjustments are working as intended.

Customizing your chatbot's personality is not a one-time task. It's an iterative process that may require several adjustments to get just right. By carefully crafting your prompt and fine-tuning the temperature setting, you can create a chatbot that truly represents your brand and enhances user experience.

Choosing the Right AI Model

The selection of an AI model is a critical decision that affects the performance, cost, and overall user experience of your chatbot. Botgenuity offers two sophisticated AI models: GPT-3.5-turbo and GPT-4-turbo. Understanding the differences between these models will help you make an informed choice that aligns with your objectives and budget.

GPT-3.5 vs. GPT-4

  • GPT-3.5: This model is known for its speed and cost-effectiveness. It is capable of generating high-quality responses quickly and is suitable for most general applications where the balance between performance and cost is essential.

  • GPT-4: The GPT-4 model is the more advanced option, offering improved comprehension and coherence in its responses. It is less prone to generating irrelevant or hallucinated content, making it ideal for applications that require a higher level of accuracy and sophistication. However, it operates at a slower pace and incurs higher costs.

Cost Analysis

  • Message Credit System: Botgenuity operates on a message credit system, where each interaction with the chatbot consumes credits. GPT-3.5-turbo uses 1 message credit per interaction, while GPT-4-turbo uses 10 credits per interaction, and GPT-4 uses 20 credits per interaction.

  • Budgeting for AI: When choosing your AI model, consider the volume of interactions your chatbot will handle and the importance of response quality in your use case. If your application can tolerate less precision for the sake of cost savings, GPT-3.5-turbo may be the appropriate choice. Conversely, if your application demands the highest quality responses, investing in GPT-4-turbo could be justified.

Performance Considerations

  • Response Time: The speed at which your chatbot responds can significantly impact user satisfaction. GPT-3.5-turbo generally provides faster responses, which can be crucial for maintaining engagement in real-time conversations.

  • Quality and Reliability: For applications where the stakes are higher, such as customer service for complex products or sensitive interactions, the improved performance of GPT-4-turbo may be necessary to ensure reliable and coherent communication.

Making the Decision

When deciding between GPT-3.5-turbo, GPT-4 or GPT-4-turbo, weigh the pros and cons of each model in the context of your specific needs:

  • Assess Your Requirements: Determine the level of sophistication required for your chatbot. Does your use case demand high-quality, nuanced responses, or is speed more critical?

  • Evaluate Your Budget: Consider the long-term costs associated with each model. How will the choice of AI model impact your operational budget?

  • Test and Iterate: You may choose to start with one model and later switch to another based on performance assessments and user feedback.

By carefully considering these factors, you can select the AI model that best suits your chatbot's requirements, ensuring an optimal balance between cost, speed, and quality of interactions.


In the rapidly evolving landscape of AI-driven communication, the ability to fine-tune your chatbot's personality and functionality is paramount. Through Botgenuity's Model Settings, you have the power to shape the interactions between your chatbot and its users, ensuring that each conversation reflects the voice and values of your brand.

By carefully selecting the appropriate AI model—whether it's the cost-effective GPT-3.5-turbo or the more advanced GPT-4-turbo, you can balance performance with budgetary constraints. Customizing the prompt and temperature settings allows you to craft a chatbot personality that resonates with your audience, fostering engagement and loyalty.

Remember that the process of optimizing your chatbot is ongoing. It requires attention to user feedback, regular performance reviews, and a willingness to iterate on your settings. Should you encounter challenges along the way, Botgenuity's support resources are readily available to assist you in troubleshooting and enhancing your chatbot's capabilities.
