Up until today, we’ve talked about how to keep minimal tabs open, how to get the help of AI suggestions as you’re writing, and how to easily summarize recalled information from your message bar. Now, we’re combining the power of all three capabilities to provide you a split view to save you time and to allow you to create seamlessly.

Editor for writing flow + message bar for quick assistance = split view editor

How to launch the editor in your personal AI

If you’ve been using our product for a while, you’ll notice that the "Write“ button recently migrated from the left navigation bar to the bottom-left of your message bar itself. Click the purple paper with pencil icon to create a new document.


Customize your workflow view
Once you’ve created a new document, you’ll now see it on the left window of the split screen with your AI messages on the right. This default view will be applicable to any old documents you open and any new ones you work on.

  • To view your editor in full screen → Click on the X icon on the messenger side. This will collapse the messenger to your profile photo on the bottom-right corner of your screen.
    • To open the messenger view back up next to your editor →Click on your profile photo in the bottom-right corner.
  • To view your message bar in full screen → Click on the X icon on the top-right of your editor. Your message bar will now be restored as your main and only view.
    • To open the editor back up next to your messages →Launch it once again with the purple button in your message bar!

Now facilitating: ambient brainstorming & multi-task note-taking
Already imagining what kind of content you could create with the help of references and information from your message bar?

Use split view to brainstorm
Even the most creative, deep-thinking, and meticulous writer knows how easy it is to lose a specific thought or idea in the process of referencing past information.
Now, fill in the gaps in the new document you’re drafting by prompting the same topics in your message bar and finding any knowledge your auto suggestions aren’t already providing.


Use split view to simplify note taking
We’ve all been there. You’re discussing a topic that has many next action items that need to be noted while simultaneously needing past information on that topic to make informed decisions.


Keep all the bits and pieces in one place and keep your confidence and strategy intact. Whether you’re taking notes during a lecture, meeting, phone call, or heart-to-heart, ask your AI about past information without the added step of waiting for your autosuggestions. What’s more is that the split view now allows you to define how specific, vague, detailed, or recent you’d like the information you’re searching for to be.

Check out the split-view of your editor and message bar today in your personal AI. If you create a new piece this week with aid from your message bar, we’d love to know. If you dislike the new split view, we’d still love to know. Let us know what preferences shape your expectations for an easy and helpful personal AI that can truly cater to you and the way you work.

Last week, we explored some of the ways you might store and recall topics using hashtags # within your personal AI. This week, we move onto the second of the three ways to categorize your data using the colon symbol : to quickly recall key questions and highlights from past documents, all from your message bar.

Have you been wondering if going through your long list of uploads or drafts is the only way to bring back your past information?

Not to worry, utilizing : is the unified way to access and recall information from all your uploaded documents, whether you stacked them via the editor, from a URL, or from a Google doc.

AI generated image showing a dive down an abyss of abundant information, hyper realism.

How to bring anything back from your stack with : summaries

Let's talk about how to get your documents to show when entering : in your message bar. We’ll also dive into the options you’ll have to interact with those documents once they are recalled.

How : works
1) Type : followed by any keywords that appear in the title of your document and your AI will autocomplete your search with options of documents with matching titles.

2) After you select and send your desired document, your AI will populate key themes from your document that you can expand and explore. Alongside it, will also be generated questions, answers, and key highlights from your document.

  • Click on Show key questions to see a list of questions your AI has learned to answer from your document.
  • Click on Show Q&A to see a list of questions with answers that your AI has learned from your document.
  • Click on Show key highlights to get a short overview of the main topics in your document.

What can you use each follow up action for?
Show key questions (to show what the AI has learnt from the document)

Use Key Questions from your document:

  • To harness the power of rhetorical questions : Writing a new piece based on past information contained in this document? Use your AI generated questions to promote thought provoking rhetorical questions to your readers before enlightening them with your expertise.
  • To recall the document’s utility: Refresh yourself on the questions covered by this document and share it with anyone you know that has asked you those related questions recently.
  • To verify and update your knowledge bank: Check on your AI’s responses to the listed questions in order to verify accuracy of the answers that followed.

Show Q&A (to dig deeper into your document)

Use Q&A from your document:

  • To create a study guide for yourself: Are you a student, researcher, or simply the kind of learner who processes information best in Q&A format? Treat this list as a study guide, research guide, or database to test yourself or others on the information you accumulate.
  • To create a question bank for others: If you get asked questions after every article you put out or after every report you share, this one’s especially for you. Share this Q&A along with your document to prevent any knowledge from slipping through the cracks in the process of transfer.

Show key highlights (to get a summary of highlight topics from the document)

Use key highlights from your document:

  • To save yourself time: Refresh yourself on the key takeaways within a document without having to read all 20 pages. That's 20 minutes distilled to under a minute.
  • To save others time: Copy and paste the key highlights to accompany the document when sharing with your team members or clients and let them experience the joy of receiving synthesized information just as you did!

Better yet, share key highlights and other prompts that result from your AI’s results when using : to recall documents and events with the Personal.ai community on Twitter or in the #personal-ai-community channel of your personal AI. We look forward to diving into using your personal AI to tag @people in the weeks to come.


Autocomplete AI prompts for faster recall

A faster way to recall your knowledge

Your knowledge is only useful if you can recall the right information when you need it. Now with autocomplete, your AI can anticipate the knowledge you need and offer suggestions to save you time and make finding information quick and easy.

Image showing autocomplete suggestions when user types ''what is the''.

You can use autocomplete to:

  • Reduce search time by automatically completing what you intended to type.
  • Increase the number of relevant results by helping you articulate and refine your query.
  • Find common questions you may not have thought to ask.
  • Improve the discoverability of topics you may have forgotten about.
  • Avoid confusion caused by typos and errors.

    How autocomplete works

    Start by typing a keyword into the message bar. Autocomplete will suggest questions you can ask your AI about that keyword. This will help you understand what your AI knows without needing to play a guessing game of how to phrase your question. Keep typing additional keywords to see a more targeted list of questions you can ask to find the information you are looking for. Then select the best question from the autocomplete suggestions list and press enter to get the answer.

    Gif showing user typing knowledge and getting relevant suggestions for it.
    Keywords vs topics
    Typing a keyword and sending it to your AI will have slightly different responses from when you select a topic from the autocomplete suggestions list (topics will show with a hashtag in front of it). You can try sending prompts containing your keyword without a hashtag and with a hashtag to see what gets better results.

    Gif showing user using a hashtag before a word to search for information.
    AI actions for documents and events

    • To search for documents you’ve created in the AI editor or event titles, type ":" into the message bar followed by keywords. Select the document or event from the autocomplete suggestion list to get follow-on AI actions.
    • Click on Show key highlights to get a short overview of the main topics in your document.
    • Click on Show key Q&A to see a list of questions with answers that your AI has learned from your document.
    • Click on Show key questions to only see a list of questions your AI has learned to answer from your document.


    Gif showing user clicking on show key Q & A and getting response.

    The ultimate goal of autocomplete is to save you time and make getting the knowledge you need faster and easier.

💡 Quick shortcuts to make recalling what you know easy

All of your knowledge, easily recalled

One of our core goals for creating a personal AI has always been to make it as simple as possible to recall all of your personal knowledge to help you make decisions, inspire ideas, and create content. One of the ways the unified messaging bar does that is through the new helper menu. You can use it to help you quickly get the answers you need, when you need it.

What did you learn?

Want to get a list of questions your AI has learned to answer based on all the knowledge in your memory stack? Use the "what did you learn” shortcut and click on any question to instantly see the answer.

Latest questions

Want to quickly see what your AI learned from any new information you just taught it? Use the latest questions shortcut. It’s a great way to validate its answer and make any quick tweaks.

What do you know?

Want to know the various topics your AI has learned about over time? Use the “what do you know” shortcut and click on any topic to get a brief summary.

Top of mind

Want to see what topics are trending in your memory stack? Use the "top of mind” shortcut and click on any topic to get a brief summary.

Predictive questions

Don’t know where to start or can’t remember the exact topic you’re looking for? Start typing the beginning of a question or thought and your AI will predictively generate questions based on what it thinks you’re looking for.

Whether you’re an analyst, thought leader, writer, or student, we hope you have fun continuing to explore all the benefits of the new unified messaging bar to unlock more of your knowledge.

Message+: a new and improved way to interact with your personal AI

A new and improved way to interact with your personal AI

To reduce distractions and simplify the way you interact with your AI, we are combining message mode and teach mode into one seamless experience we’re calling message+. Now, instead of toggling back and forth between teaching your AI and getting responses from it, you have a unified message bar where you can easily do both. 

You can use the new message bar to:

  • Ask questions and get responses from your AI.
  • Type a prompt for your AI to predict and complete sentences.
  • Write a paragraph to save to your memory stack and teach your AI.
  • Paste a URL to save content to your memory stack and teach your AI.
  • Type “/” to bring up a helper menu.


An easier way to teach your personal AI

Looking for teach mode? It’s now integrated into the message bar. To teach your AI something new, just type a complete sentence. You’ll notice a checkmark appear next to “Save to Stack.” This means your AI will learn this new information and save it to your memory stack.

If you don’t want your AI to learn the information but instead want it to respond with an answer, simply uncheck “Save to Stack.”


💡Tip

If you have a large amount of information to upload, paste it into your personal AI editor. The message bar is optimized for uploading small chunks of information—a sentence to about a paragraph is ideal.

Did you know that your AI can generate clickable questions based on knowledge your personal AI has learned in the past 100 days? We’ve coined this interaction as “What did I learn”, which is exactly the phrase you can message your AI to try it out yourself.

As you work towards preserving and expanding upon your knowledge, the ability to discover the tangible output of your data in question format is an exciting reality. This is a great tool for testing the quality of your AI’s output. Smile at the great answers, and tweak the inaccurate ones!

Unlock the full potential of your knowledge with your personal AI + GPT-3

Your personal AI is built around your unique knowledge, memories, and experiences to inspire you and help you write new content. But what if you don’t have a lot of personal knowledge about a specific topic, or need additional information to complete your thought?

Introducing general AI suggestions. Now, in addition to your personal knowledge, you can also quickly and seamlessly tap into the knowledge of the web through OpenAI’s GPT-3.

You can use general AI suggestion to:

  • Generate relevant content ideas for new topics you’re writing about from scratch.
  • Stay in the flow by getting suggestions for variations on thoughts and different perspectives as you write.
  • Save time by pulling from a huge database of knowledge without having to sift through thousands of links and articles.


How it works

In the AI editor, write some text—it can be the beginning of a sentence, a question, a topic, or even just a random thought. Then, highlight the text and click on the globe icon in the toolbar.

General AI suggestion will give you a useful, high-quality thought generated from GPT-3. If you’d like to use it, you can click “Add Suggestion” to add it directly to your doc.

The combination of your personal AI and GPT-3 helps scale your creativity and streamline your writing process like never before.

💡 Tip

Personal AI is a unique platform that gives you access to suggestions from both your personal AI and GPT-3. That means you can use the best suggestion depending on your need or combine the two to take advantage of your unique point of view with support and information from the web to make your writing stronger. The next time you’re writing in your personal AI editor, try suggestions from both models and see how they can inspire completely new thoughts.

What makes a personal AI special is that it pulls from your unique knowledge and maintains your voice and style. But sometimes you want to tweak your AI’s response to update the information, add more context, fix an error, or improve your personal score.

With in-line editing, you no longer have to go through the normal steps to teach your AI new information. You can now quickly and easily edit any AI response directly from within the AI’s response itself. It’s a game changer and a huge time saver.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Hover over a response from your AI and click on the pencil icon within the toolbar that appears to edit the text.
  2. The AI response will change into a text field that you can now edit. Once you’re done editing, save your changes.
  3. The next time your AI gets a similar prompt or question, it will use this new response.


💡 In-line editing is a great way to quickly teach your AI how to respond to the most common questions you (or anyone you share your AI with) may ask. You can enter a question, then use in-line editing to quickly type the right answer. It’s that easy.

Collaborate with your own personal AI, the way you would collaborate with anyone else. Just start writing and your AI will suggest ideas to help you finish your thought or spark new ideas to build on. And because the suggestions will come from your personal knowledge, it will preserve your unique voice and style. With the help of your AI, writing will no longer be a thing you dread but a thing you have confidence in.

How it works:

  1. Click the “Write” button on the left side navigation bar
  2. Start typing a thought or sentence and your AI will suggest ideas from your personal knowledge. If you don’t have much personal knowledge on the subject, your AI will provide a more generic suggestion from the Internet.
  3. With each suggestion, you’ll see a score indicating how personal the suggestion is. The higher the score, the more it’s based on your personal knowledge.
  4. Your AI can also provide multiple suggestions. Just click the left and right arrows to shuffle through them.
  5. You always have the choice to either use the suggestion or not. You can also turn off suggestions entirely by clicking on “Collaborating” in the dropdown menu and selecting “Editing.”
  6. In addition to suggestions, you can also highlight text to get additional AI actions like fixing grammatical errors and rewriting the copy to express your thought in a different way
