Six things you didn’t know about AI – this month’s recap (April 2023)

AI has been a hot topic for the last few years. The last few weeks in particular have seen a veritable explosion of announcements from the world of artificial intelligence and upcoming tools designed to help thousands of specialists at work. As you may want to bring some of these applications into your business, it’s worth keeping up to date with developments.   

It’s easy to get lost in the sheer volume of information, regarding this matter so here’s a list of things you probably don’t yet know about AI.   

One step closer to autonomy

So far, we have had to give AI prompts regarding what we would like to receive. But now, several tools of AutoGPT have been launched in beta versions, to help it reach certain goals. How does it work? You simply put a goal into AutoGPT, and the AI will take care of the rest. This tool has the ability for self-prompting until the goal is reached. It means that the conversation is still in progress within the chat after giving it the information about the needed result, but the chat will respond to itself until the goal has been reached. 

Besides these abilities, it can manage much larger amounts of text and summarize it, categorize it,  along with translating a text  into different languages. This application has put AI firmly on the path to truly manage and create text with human-like ability.  

It’s better not to feed your organisation’s data into AI

…which some have learned the hard way. ChatGPT now gives the user the  possibility to switch off chat history and decide which information can be used for future upgrades of the tool. From now on, conversations that started while the chat history was disabled won’t be used to improve the ChatGPT models and the user will not be able to find them in the history tab.

It’s worth mentioning that ChatGPT states that ”use Content from Services other than our API (“Non-API Content”) to help develop and improve our Services’’. This means that ChatGPT’s DALL-E2, the research model, will treat data users’ input as open-source data. The goal is to further optimize this model so that its performance can be improved. 

It does not mean, that OpenAI is intentionally stealing IP from its users. If you want to be safe and ensure that there are no org data leaks, ChatGPT enables you to resign from the data tracking within ChatGPT with the OpenAI form in their Terms of Services. As a further precaution, it also enables you to delete your data whenever needed.  

Building a simple app with the help of AI – hands free!

New ways of using AI in business are not always just about creating brand new tools. It’s also about being creative in using existing products to optimize operations within a company. For example, did you know that ChatGPT can be useful in creating a simple application? And by only using voice commands?  

It’s doable due to a feature that translates voice into text. The newest features of AutoGPT also allow one to not only build code with ease but also evaluate it, test it, and correct errors, as it’s writing its own code, improving it and implementing it.  

Of course at this stage, such solutions are not flawless and require expertise. However, this is a breakthrough that will improve the work of many IT professionals and in the future may allow absolute automatization. 

Human speech-like text

With the ongoing efforts to make ChatGPT’s way of communication more similar to human speech, there does seem to be a breakthrough. ChatGPT-4 is a new language model that already considerably resembles spoken language and is less awkward in general. Compared to previous versions, there is a significant increase in creativity, the ability to create bigger high-quality chunks of text such as essays as well as maintaining context in conversation. It can even mimic a unique style of writing, as well as asking questions and answering enquiries.  

This feature could completely revolutionize the customer service experience, greatly shortening and enhancing the process for both sides. This innovation can be implemented fruitfully in solutions such as chatbots or virtual assistants, as the experience of cooperating with this model Is human-like.  

It’s worth thinking about implementing it in your business, however, be on guard – while a chatbot may accurately imitate a real person, it certainly isn’t one. It can be easily fooled by various language tricks. For example, reverse psychology works too well on them. 

Plugins support in ChatGPT

The pool of available tools that can be used when working with AI continues to expand. This month, ChatGPT introduced the option of adding plug-ins that allow you to access specific, previously unavailable sources of information. It will enable using up-to-date information, which has been to date one of the biggest issues, as well as the ability to utilize third-party services in the Chat.  

As the OpenAI states, the first plugins have already landed and were created by companies including OpenTable, Slack, Wolfram, Zapier. There is also the possibility to join the waiting list for future enhancements.  

Something to look out for – a new browsing feature

ChatGPT is being tested in a browsing mode. Soon, it will be able to convert the prompt given by the user and search for the given issue. Then, the results will be summarised into a list with a clickable citation and the source. It is going to be a great addition to research and navigation through up-to-date information online, which can save a lot of time. This is just around the corner! 

In addition to these innovations, the market for AI-based tools is skyrocketing – at times reaching up to 100 new releases per week. It’s worth keeping track of developments and seeing if anything can help your business.
