Over the last few months, we've been busy building integrations between the TaxoPress plugin and popular AI services.
Honestly, I'm amazed how good these services are. For a long time, TaxoPress supported Dandelion and also LSEG / Refinitiv. These services are from a previous generation of AI tools. They could scan your content and suggest taxonomy terms. They support a couple of languages and have some options.
Today we're introducing the first version of our “TaxoPress AI” feature. Over the next few releases, we'll start to explore the full potential of OpenAI and IBM Watson. In this post, I'll explain what's new in the TaxoPress AI feature.
The new TaxoPress AI metabox
The TaxoPress AI feature has a much improved metabox on your post editing screen. This image below shows the TaxoPress AI metabox. You can click on any term to add it to your post.
There are up to seven different options in this new TaxoPress AI metabox:
- Manage Post Terms: This feature allows you to manage all the terms that are currently attached to a post.
- Suggest Existing Terms: This feature uses a tool in the TaxoPress plugin that can scan your posts and suggest relevant terms that already exist on your site.
- Show All Existing Terms: This feature allows you to browse all the terms in a taxonomy.
- OpenAI / IBM Watson / Dandelion / LSEG: These integrations are in TaxoPress Pro. They allow you to connect to external services. These services will scan your content and suggest both existing terms and new terms.
This next screenshot shows the terms that TaxoPress AI (thanks to OpenAI) is suggesting for this post you're reading now. This post has about 600 words, and OpenAI has 15 term suggestions. The terms in green are attached to the post.
The new TaxoPress AI screen
The tools in the new metabox are also available inside the “TaxoPress AI” area of the WordPress admin area. This screen allows you to quickly move between different posts and taxonomies. You can also test different services to see which is the best fit for your content. In the screenshot below, I'm testing an English article about WordPress.
All of the services work well with English. IBM Watson really expand the number of supported languages. This screenshot below shows OpenAI suggesting terms for a post in Spanish:
This next screrenshot shows OpenAI processing an article in Romanian. OpenAI is impressive and we were able to get some results for even the most obscures languages we tested. As you can see, IBM Watson tends to produce more suggestions than OpenAI.
IBM Watson officially supports over 20 languages. In this screenshot, I'm using IBM Watson to suggest terms for a Japanese article.
This next screenshot has an example of IBM Watson generating suggested terms for an article in Hindi.
TaxoPress AI Summary
TaxoPress currently has integrations with four different AI services: OpenAI / IBM Watson / Dandelion / LSEG. Each service has different pros and cons. We recommend testing them to see which is the best choice for your site.
Thanks to WPTavern for covering this launch. I think that AI can be incredibly valuable for WordPress users, if we can find the right use-cases.
Over the next few weeks and months, we're going to be adding more AI features to help you categorize your WordPress content. In particular, we'll focus on integrating some of the amazing tools available with OpenAI and IBM Watson.
