🦾 AGI is here: AutoGPT leaves everyone stunned
AutoGPT is an open-source tool based on OpenAI's latest language model, GPT-4.
This is an experiment that aims to make the program autonomous and has been trending on Github as it showcases the capability of GPT-4 like never before.
This program, driven by GPT-4, chains together LLM "thoughts", to autonomously achieve whatever goal you set. As one of the first examples of GPT-4 running fully autonomously, Auto-GPT pushes the boundaries of what is possible with AI.
AutoGPT can access:
- the internet for gathering information,
- popular websites & platforms, and
- GPT-4 instances for text generation.
Along with the file storage and summarization capabilities (built on the GPT-3.5 model), it also has long & short term memory.
This is truly the closest we've been to AGI; building autonomous AI systems would disrupt everything we've known to date.
