In informing about AI tools, we intentionally focus only on the most important ones, such as ChatGPT, GPT-4, Midjourney — or the latest innovation known as Auto-GPT.

Auto-GPT is an autonomous “AI agent” to which you assign a task in natural language and it will attempt to complete it. To do this, it uses API calls to ChatGPT (i.e. GPT-4 or GPT-3.5) to analyze the task, break it down into subtasks, or even debug its own code. It can also browse or search the Internet, or use other services to which it has access.

The project began as an open-source experiment on Github, but it has caused such a stir that it is now being hailed as a next big thing in AI. Services like this may soon fulfill a role of an autonomous researcher or assistant to whom you assign a simpler task, and they deliver a usable output in a short time.

Of course, there are still many bugs, but the charm of AutoGPT experiments cannot be denied. Developers can setup their own agent, while the public can try Auto-GPT on a limited basis on sites like AgentGPT or God Mode, or watch a video about it:
