Artificial intelligences, commonly referred to by their acronym: AI, are here to stay. Although years ago there were already examples of AIs that were supposedly able to pass even the Turing test, most of the artificial intelligences developed tended to be very basic and with operations based more on their programming than on self-generated responses based on “training”.
But today, the reality is very different. AIs are no longer a science fiction concept, nor are they exclusively at the service of agencies such as the CIA. Contrary to what may seem to many people less versed in this world, there are already AIs that can even help you with your homework or make your work easier. Do you want to know some of them? We show them to you.
Possibly the most widely used AI to date and by far the most popular. ChatGPT is a new artificial language model developed by OpenAI that specializes in dialogue and text writing. You can ask it any question and the chatbot will respond with surprisingly elaborate writing. In fact, you’ll find it’s more eloquent than most of us.
Its impact on our world is growing every day. In addition to being used for “rogue” tasks such as taking an exam for you, AI is now being used in real estate, in the world of politics and even in programming. The versatility and “intelligence” of this AI is such that in just two years we could say goodbye to our favorite search engine, Google.
If we have already mentioned that AIs can help program code, we could not miss one of the most used AIs in this field: GitHub Copilot. This AI is owned by GitHub, a website where programmers dump and share the code they are developing. The function has been trained with billions of lines of code, offering real-time suggestions to programmers.
With this AI, programming professionals will spend less time creating repetitive code patterns, making programs, plugins, scripts, etc. more efficient. Just write a comment describing the logic you want and GitHub Copilot will immediately suggest code to implement the solution.
When it comes to making spreadsheets, one of the most widely used free applications is Google’s Sheets. While entering data can be simple, the most interesting functions of these spreadsheets require hours of study, learning, and a lot of trial and error. A process that SheetAI could greatly alleviate thanks to its functionality.
With SheetsAI, you can create high-quality formulas in a completely customized way, automate the analysis of your data (you can summarize text and categorize customer comments, for example) and even generate images automatically through AI without having to search for hours in libraries.
More specifically, there are more and more AIs specialized in generating images automatically. AIs need already created images to train themselves, and while there are some that make illicit use of copyrighted images to generate other images, others are much more respectful of this issue, as is the case with Stable Diffusion.
The AI, which does not collect any personal information on its servers, uses a proprietary image generation model that allows you to create “out of thin air” high quality images of anything you can imagine. All you have to do is type in a text and click on the Generate button, and your image is ready.
And if generating images sounds like a great idea for homework or work assignments, how about creating presentations directly? Beautiful.ai is an AI that can design and create presentations automatically so you don’t have to.
Its website provides users with a series of smart templates that offer a model for making presentations of all kinds, including those with a modern style that are so fashionable among companies. All you have to do is choose one of the thousands of templates available, add content and the slides will adapt as if by magic.
Video calls are one of the tools that we have used the most since the arrival of the pandemic. If just a few years ago they were already becoming part of our daily lives, both personally and professionally, the COVID-19 global confinements gave them a “boost”, and today we use them for work meetings, virtual classes and even job interviews. And, yes, there is an AI that can help you in this regard. Its name? Poised.
Poised will allow you to have real time information in the interview about all kinds of data, from the words you use, the energy you give off, the empathy you show, etc. And, best of all, no one will know you are using this tool. AI also allows you to analyze your tendencies over time, so if you’re one of the thousands and thousands of people who go through dozens of job interviews, you’ll be able to improve your public speaking skills little by little.
