The talk of the town is Auto-GPT: an experimental open-source application that showcases the capabilities of the GPT-4 language model.
What is Auto-GPT?
Auto-GPT is a free, open-source Python application which uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology. GPT-4 is a multimodal large language model created by OpenAI as part of its GPT series. Auto-GPT also runs autonomously which means it is capable of generating its own ideas and suggestions based on human input through prompts. Unlike ChatGPT, Auto-GPT requires very little human interaction and is able to self-prompt, through what it calls ‘added tasks.’
Who developed Auto-GPT?
Auto-GPT was posted to GitHub, a platform for software developers, by a user named Significant Gravitas. A demo video was posted to the site on March 30, 2023. It is made using OpenAI’s latest and most advanced model from the GPT series, GPT-4.
What can Auto-GPT do?
The possibilities, as things are when it comes to the vast playground of AI, are seemingly endless. Auto-GPT has internet access, long-term and short-term memory management, GPT-4 for text generation and file storage and summarisation with GPT-3.5. It uses DALL-e for image generation as well.
It can generate test cases, debug code, and even stir up innovative business ideas. Twitter users who had the opportunity to test the tool tried out a variety of tasks: including carrying out research, finding a person’s digital footprint, and generating code.
One user even asked Auto-GPT to “reimagine the future of health and medicine,” which generated an interesting response.
In the original GitHub demo, prompts such as ‘increase net worth’, ‘grow Twitter Account’, ‘Develop and manage multiple businesses’ were shown as examples.
Who can access Auto-GPT?
Since Auto-GPT is a free, open-source application, it can be accessed by all. Unfortunately for those thrilled to hop on this GPT-coded train, the installation will require some time and patience. While ChatGPT can be accessed easily through its official platform, running Auto-GPT requires users to access the following: Python 3.8, an OpenAI API key, a PINECONE API key and an ElevenLabs Key.
