Generative AI Tools 2023

Sam Altman opened the floodgates of AI technology when he disrupted the IT landscape with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. With a record number of subscribers crossing all existing subscriber counts, ChatGPT reigns supreme when it comes to ubiquity. This has made way for other alternatives to ChatGPT that offer more and sometimes at a lower price. 

1. The need for tools like ChatGPT

Here are a few reasons why you can and in some cases must use alternatives to ChatGPT:

a. ChatGPT requires prompt engineering where the user will need to learn the proper prompts to obtain the information they require. This is especially applicable when you need to access a multitude of information from ChatGPT alone.

b. ChatGPT 3.5 which is free for users has a maximum number of queries that an individual can ask the platform. This makes it hard to use this version for commercial applications

c. ChatGPT-4 model that has even more advanced capabilities comes with a price tag of $20 USD per month

d. ChatGPT cannot access current information after 2021, which is a major restriction. 

Add-ons and integration with social media are unavailable and customizations according to brand and company name are not possible with ChatGPT alone.

a. Writing

1. Writer.com

Writer is a generative AI platform which can create content across teams ranging from Marketing to customer success and service teams.

Although most people think that AI-generated content is error-free, it is worth mentioning that it also requires your attention. It may consist of grammar and punctuation errors that may affect the readability of content and make it difficult for the targeted audience to understand its meaning. Hence, you may also need to perform a grammar check to find grammar mistakes in AI-generated content and rectify them with ease. This practice will help you save the effort and time that will go into the manual proofreading process

b. Coding 

AI code assistants are AI-powered tools that are used to help developers write code and are created using machine learning algorithms. Such ML algorithms are trained on huge code repositories and can comprehend coding languages and identify errors. They can also help suggest improvements and write significant amounts of code. 

Large language models of late have led to leaps in the development of such code assistants, functioning as a coder by itself. Here are a few such examples:

6. Tabnine

This is one such AI code assistant that offers contextual suggestions in code that increase productivity by managing repetitive coding tasks. Using generative AI, Tabnine can suggest the upcoming code according to syntax and context. It can convert natural language to code along with that including whole-line and full-function code completions in the Integrated Development Environment.
