In the age of Artificial Intelligence (AI), many powerful tools are available beyond ChatGPT. The recent surge in generative AI tools has highlighted the versatility of this technology, which has now extended beyond academia and Silicon Valley.
AI is not just a viral sensation but a transformative technology that can revolutionise how individuals and businesses function daily. With numerous AI tools available, it is crucial to understand the capabilities and potential of this technology.
Before delving into the tools, it is essential to understand AI’s concept. AI refers to “machine learning,” which uses software algorithms that learn and improve by processing more data. This technology also powers platforms like Google, Amazon, Netflix, and Uber.
Here are some of the most mind-blowing AI tools that showcase AI’s current capabilities:
- ChatGPT is a conversational interface for OpenAI’s GPT large language model, producing output in prose, poetry, and computer code.
- Dall-E 2 – a text-to-computer graphics tool that transforms text prompts into various forms of images, paintings, drawings, and photos.
- Stable Diffusion 2 – a text-to-image generative AI tool that can be downloaded and installed on your computer, unlike OpenAI’s projects.
- Lumen5 – an AI-powered video creation tool with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface for creating education, marketing, and business video content.
- Soundraw – an automated music generator that creates royalty-free AI music by letting users decide the genre, instruments, mood, and track length.
- Looka – an AI tool that generates unique and distinctive logos to brand your business, even if you don’t have any design skills.
- Podcastle – an audio recording and editing platform with integrated AI tools that help create professional-sounding recordings and transcripts.
- Gen-1 – a cloud-based text-to-video platform that creates new videos from uploaded ones or storyboard mock-ups, using text prompts to apply the desired edits and effects.
- Lalal.ai – an AI tool that uses Phoenix’s neural network system to separate audio sources from audio or video content, such as vocals, music, or specific instrumental tracks.
- Deep Nostalgia – an innovative tool that animates the faces in old family photos to see them smile, blink, and laugh as if they were in a video.
- Murf – a text-to-speech engine that generates natural-sounding synthetic vocal recordings in 15 languages, with a choice of over 100 voices and dialects.
- Legal Robot – an AI tool that translates complex “legalese” into simple language, ensuring anyone can understand legal documents.
- Cleanup.Pictures – an AI tool that removes unwanted objects, defects, or even people from images using a process known as “inpainting.”
- Fireflies – an AI tool that plugs into popular video conferencing tools and automates note-taking, transcribing, and analysing conversations to provide insights into dynamics and decision-making.
- Krisp – Conference call application using algorithms to remove background noises, echo, and other distracting elements in real-time, ensuring that you always come across in a clear and professional manner.
- RadioGPT – a new AI-driven radio technology that can broadcast everything on air, from voice and music to finding local news stories, creating social media posts, podcasts, and short-form video content to promote shows. The AI system can even create the voices of virtual radio hosts.
- NovelAI – GPT-powered AI storyteller. The algorithm can create human-like writing based on your own, enabling anyone, regardless of ability, to produce quality literature.
- Fingerprint for Success – The only Australian entry on the list is Coach Marlee by Sydney-based Fingerprint for Success. ‘Marlee’ is the world’s first AI coach and utilises conversational AI technology to provide real-time developmental coaching to anyone with an internet connection for free. Marlee helps individuals and teams develop resourcefulness, emotional intelligence, creativity, and comfort with ambiguity, leading to a better understanding of themselves and others.
- Motion – This AI assistant intelligently plans your day, schedules meetings and builds to-do lists. It can prioritise your work automatically, reschedule undone tasks, check if you meet deadlines (you’ll love this!), limit your meetings, and even check your focus. Yes, we know, it doesn’t make coffee (yet).
These AI tools show what technology can achieve today and how it can transform how we work, communicate, and create. This list will expand as new technologies and platforms become available to the public. Please check back for updates!
