The Newest AI Tools and ChatGPT Integrations
I want to talk about some impressive AI tools that are coming soon, most have beta access available so if you can master these before they launch, you’ll be at the forefront of innovation before most people know these tools even exist. There’s also a section for chat GPT integrations and some tools that are just weird. I want to start with video RunwayML tools because that’s what I am most excited about. All of this was done with runway’s gen 1, but the videos people have been posting from the beta of Gen 2 are incredible, so this is entirely text to video. There’s still a learning curve to this stuff, especially if the goal is realism, but the amount of progress that’s been made in this area since I started paying attention just a couple of months ago is insane. Here are some short clips showing what these tools can do.
Moving on, there’s another platform called Kyber that’s been doing amazing stuff in this arena. You upload the video, describe the style you want, and it will transform it. They even have a mobile app now, which is a ton of fun to use. The Gen 2 version looks next level, and I can’t wait to play around with it.
Next, there’s Wonder Studio, and even though I haven’t been given access yet, I’ve seen lots of people posting their experiments. Its ability to seamlessly replace characters with just a click is unreal. It automatically animates lights and composes scenes, and they have a library of preset characters that most people are using, but you can also upload your own if you’re familiar with Blender.
What excites me most about the entire AI space is the democratization of these tools and abilities. For example, Corridor Crew made an anime using AI, and it’s mind-blowing to see what they accomplished with just a few people compared to what it would have taken a massive studio with specialized animators. The same is happening in the realms of business and web design. Take, for instance, The Forge, an app builder that allows you to create fully functioning apps easily with no coding knowledge, and it even integrates AI.
There’s also iMagica, another no-code app builder I’ve heard people talking about. I haven’t tried it out yet, but they have a very high-quality demo, so I’m excited to see what I can build.
Moving into music, Spline does text to 3D objects, which is incredible if it’s relevant to your field. Then there’s Eleven Labs, which has a voice clone with translation. You can see an example of David Attenborough speaking German, and it sounds incredibly authentic.
Flawless AI has an ability to change people’s mouths in movies, making it look like they were speaking in a different language, and the results are very convincing.
SingSong is another interesting project where you sing, and it generates an entire instrumental accompaniment from just your vocals. This could open up a world of possibilities for music production.
Now, moving on to some really interesting chat GPT integrations, we have Apollo, a chat GPT-powered app that sits in your AirPods all day long to help you think and answer questions without a screen in the way. Uncle Rabbit takes it to the next level, putting chat GPT into a holographic companion. It’s pretty gimmicky, but it gives you an idea of what people might try to create in the future.
Boston Dynamics is programming chat GPT into one of its robots, which could lead to some fascinating and possibly weird applications. There’s also GPT Avatar, an app that’s an avatar meant to sound like a human, and Meta Avatars, which are becoming incredibly realistic.
In the realm of augmented reality, there are endless possibilities, and Humane AI has a small demo of its wearable AI assistant that uses a small projector to pop up on surfaces like your hand. It’s cool, but it’s hard to say if this catches on.
You’ll note that the future of technology might almost be invisible, as devices become less intrusive and more seamless to integrate with your life. The future will not be held in your hand, and it won’t be on your face either. The future of technology might almost be invisible.
