Artificial intelligence (AI) is going through a “hot topic” moment, as apps like ChatGPT show the world just how powerful and capable it is becoming.
The emergence of this new breed of “generator” AI tools has made it clear in recent months that this is no longer something that matters only in academic research or the tech giants of Silicon Valley.
And far from just being the latest “viral feeling,” AI has truly become a technology that any business or person can leverage to revolutionize the way they work or perform any number of daily activities.
So, what are the tools that everyone should know to ensure they understand exactly what AI is capable of today? I’ve picked some of the most important ones to highlight how you can start using them today.
First, what exactly is AI?
If, like many people, you just started paying attention to AI after stumbling upon one of the latest viral applications, you might be wondering how they relate to what we have traditionally called “artificial intelligence.”
Most people will first encounter the term in science fiction, where, for over 100 years, we’ve been entertained by stories featuring intelligent robots—sometimes friendly, sometimes not so much.
In reality, when we use the term AI today, we usually mean a technology known as “machine learning.” Instead of simulating every aspect of natural intelligence like robots in movies, it simply refers to software algorithms that are able to learn—getting better and better at performing one specific task the more data they are exposed to.
Machine learning employs a multitude of revolutionary tools that have changed the way we live – from searching for information online with Google, to shopping with Amazon, watching movies on Netflix or traveling with Uber. Now the latest strain of AI applications offers us the opportunity to use it for almost any task we can think of. So let’s look at some of them:
What are the apps everyone needs to know about?
Let’s start with a quick summary of the viral feeling that is ChatGPT. It is a conversational interface for OpenAI’s large GPT-3 language model, which has recently become publicly available as a free study preview. In response to text prompts such as questions or instructions, it will output text in any form, including prose, poetry, and even computer code.
Another OpenAI project, which together with ChatGPT is responsible for driving the current wave of consumer interest in artificial intelligence.
It takes text messages and turns them into computer graphics (pictures, pictures, drawings, drawings, etc.)
Stable Diffusion 2
This is another AI text-to-image generator application. Unlike Dall-E 2, its source code, as well as details about the training and weighting data used by its algorithms, are publicly available, and the app can be downloaded and installed on your computer instead of only being accessible through a proprietary cloud portal as is the case with OpenAI projects.
An AI-powered video creation tool that allows anyone to easily create video content for education, marketing, or business using a simple drag-and-drop interface.
Automatic Music Generator – Create royalty-free AI music by simply making decisions about the genre of music you want to create,
The tools to be used, the mood you want to create and the length of the track. Then sit back and let the AI put unique tracks together.
It’s a tool that makes it easy to brand your business by using artificial intelligence to create unique logos that convey your company style and messages.
This tool makes it difficult to start creating custom marketing material even if you don’t have design skills.
Audio recording and editing platform with integrated AI tools that help you create clear and smooth recordings
Especially for sounding like they’re professionally edited, automating tasks like cleaning up messy sounds and creating transcripts.
A cloud-based text-to-video platform that creates new videos from the ones you upload,
Using text prompts to apply the edits and effects you want, or create animations from design samples.
This tool was also developed by the creators of Stable Diffusion.
This tool uses a neural network system called Phoenix to automate the separation of the audio source.
It involves extracting elements such as vocals, music, or even specific instrumental tracks like drum beat or bass from any audio or video content.
Do you have historical family photographs of distant relatives or ancestors you’d like to see on the move?
This innovative tool allows you to animate your face in family photos so you can see them smiling, blinking and laughing, just as if you recorded a video of them that day.
It’s a text-to-speech engine that makes it easy to create synthetic vocal recordings in natural sounds in 15 languages from over 100 voices and dialects.
This output can be easily integrated into automated marketing or video content, automating the voiceover and voiceover creation process.
This tool is designed to automatically translate complex and confusing “legal” into simple language that can be understandable to anyone. Useful both for laymen who want to make sure they understand legal documents and for legal professionals to ensure that their contracts and documents are written in terms that anyone can understand.
This AI tool allows you to retouch photos by removing objects, flaws, or even unwanted people, using a process known as “drawing” to help you create the perfect image.
This tool connects to popular video conferencing tools like Zoom, Teams, or Webex and automates the process of note-taking and word generation.
It also analyzes conversations to provide insights into the dynamics and decision-making that occur in your conversations.
Another conference calling app, this one uses algorithms to remove background noise, echo, and other distracting elements in real time, ensuring you always encounter it clearly and professionally.
