Free book and video course by USF Professor David Wolber

Create AI

Put the power of ChatGPT Into your apps


The GenAI app below is live! It allows students to learn about Civil Rights Icon Ella Baker by having a conversation with her. The app was built with Thunkable's Visual Blocks coding tool and it talks to OpenAI just as you chat with ChatGPT. Try it: ask Ella Baker a question by clicking on a blue button or typing in the box.

Generative AI Apps Talk to the Super-Brain


Introducing Thunkable's OpenAI Block

OpenAI blocks are a powerful new addition to Thunkable's  programming toolkit. The blocks bring the incredible capabilities of AI to your fingertips, allowing you to integrate sophisticated "super-brain" features into your apps. With Thunkable and these OpenAI blocks, ordinary humans can now  make extraordinary Ai-infused apps.

Thunkable blocks for a "Talk with Ella Baker" app

Thunkable's blocks make coding like plugging puzzle pieces together, so everyone can build apps.  With the new OpenAI blocks, that capability now extends to Gen-AI apps-- apps that talk to the super-brain like the "Talk to Ella Baker" app.

The result: people with little or no coding experience can learn a new super power. 

Even if you've never coded before, you can create your own Gen-AI app and have it running on your phone within an hour. And you can learn with University of San Francisco Professor David Wolber, who specializes in teaching beginners. Learn and build something awesome!
