With the current boom of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools hitting the market, it can feel like AI is new. But it’s actually been around for the better part of a century.
Oddly enough, AI first grew in popularity out of early twentieth-century science fiction. In a classic example of life imitating art, scientists and mathematicians started exploring how they could make fictional depictions of AI into a reality. However, only recent computer technologies have allowed for the generative AI tools we see today.
AI is now used for computing Big Data which has endless applications across a wide variety of industries. We’re also seeing generative AI tools becoming available to end users for the first time, which can make work easier and more efficient.
This begs the question: will AI replace human workers? Probably not, or at least not any time soon. However, we can leverage AI to do repetitive or administrative tasks. This frees up time and energy to be more strategic and creative, solve complex problems, and provide higher-level thinking in day-to-day work.
Let’s walk through ten of the most powerful generative AI tools and integrations to help you work smarter, not harder.
