In November 2022, OpenAI introduced ChatGPT, a chatbot that sparked fear and excitement in equal measure as people contemplated the implications of AI on their livelihoods. Five months later, the world is awestruck yet again by OpenAI’s newest large language model (LLM) called GPT-4, which has demonstrated artificial general intelligence (AGI), a capability that many believed was still decades away.
GPT-4 has given rise to several autonomous agents, such as Auto-GPT, BabyAGI, and the latest entrant, AgentGPT, developed by Srijan Subedi, Asim Shrestha, and Adam Watkins. Unlike its predecessors, AgentGPT does not require any installation and is easily accessible through a web browser. Users can deploy AI agents for multiple tasks by typing in the agent’s name and directing it to perform a specific task. AgentGPT will then break the solution into multiple chunks and build a solution for the problem.
AgentGPT is built using Next.js on Ping.gg stack and leverages large language models to generate task lists and execute them iteratively. It evaluates sub-actions and completes tasks to solve the question posed by a user effectively. Users can save and share the agent with others and export their agent results to various formats such as PDFs, images, or text.
AgentGPT has the potential to streamline business processes, automate domains such as copywriting, generate use cases, and optimize business operations with minimal human effort. It could also be used as a personal assistant and in areas like data analytics, automation, and customer service. The platform’s architecture allows it to deploy LLMs, and the developers are working on incorporating features such as local and long-term memory storage to improve context preservation and decision-making.
AgentGPT’s ease of use and accessibility make it an attractive proposition for businesses looking to automate their operations and gather information in one place. It could also find usage in startups looking to save time on data collation and streamline their operations. AgentGPT’s functionalities and versatility make it a compelling option for businesses and individuals alike.
