Further Augmenting Long Term Memory - AnkiTutorGPT

Hey AnkiForums!

Lots of you have already been working on integrating ChatGPT into Anki Desktop client to help query cards.

I wanted to add to this by creating a specific tutor mode that could rewrite questions and then quiz me on recalling them.

I integrated that into the ChatGPT interface with some custom prompts on the GPT to act as an encouraging tutor.

I made a blog post explaining the rationale behind those prompts called Further Augmenting Long Term Memory on Substack, which has the links to the github where you can install it from.

TLDR: Flashcards have four downsides: prompt sensitisation, partial recall, lack of positive reinforcement, lack of embedding in new contexts.

AnkiTutorGPT acts to help you recall an entire flashcard of knowledge and then apply it in a new context whilst being encouraging!

I hope that people find this helpful - it is now the default way by which I revise text based flashcards! - and I look forward to seeing how you all integrate it further into Anki!


That sounds interesting, do you have a link to your blog or Github?

I searched AnkiTutorGPT site:substack.com and Nothing. I also did a search with Further Augmenting Long Term Memory site:substack.com but once again nothing comes up. Google is unreliable so you should have posted a link to it. But then I also searched Github but no results. Did you not use the word AnkiTutorGPT?

I’m getting “error occured you cannot include links” so adding the link with brackets in.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Oh yes, new users cannot add links.

you mean something like i select an anki note/card, the GPT will re-write a similar card for me(“re-phased”)? multiplying my anki collection?

did i get it wrong? thx

It could do that - but in this case it is specifically optimised to have a discussion with you about that card. So it can re-write it (so that you don’t just learn a response to the original prompt) and then have a discussion with you about the content of the card.

It’s now my default way of reviewing text based cards!
