AI is still the hottest topic in tech due to the massive success of ChatGPT, now thought to have the fastest-growing user base of any application in history.
In a previous article, I highlighted various exciting AI tools and platforms, from chatbots to computer vision apps, for day-to-day and professional use.
(That article also includes a brief introduction to the new breed of “generative” AI apps that are taking the internet by storm– so if you have no idea what I’m talking about when I mention ChatGPT or Dall-E, I recommend heading there now!)
However, there are many other noteworthy applications I simply didn’t have room to mention, and new ones are constantly emerging.
This article highlights another set of these tools, which have the potential to make life easier in a range of different ways. The sheer range of applications and platforms covered here also demonstrates how quickly AI is developing and diversifying and its potential impact on all aspects of life.
Synthesia lets anyone create branded videos and corporate content and see it brought to life in front of their eyes by AI avatars. This is a form of synthetic video that can vastly reduce the amount of time businesses spend filming and editing content. If changes need to be made, the scripts can simply be edited, and the video will be updated. It also automatically handles translation into over 120 languages.
Automates the cleanup of audio and vocal tracks by removing background noise, stuttering, “ums and errs,” as well as dead air time and lengthy silences to create clean, professional-sounding recordings.
Jasper is an AI copywriting tool that works in a similar fashion to ChatGPT – in fact, it’s based on the same GPT-3 language model. However, it’s more tuned toward creating advertising and marketing copy rather than acting as a conversational interface.
This is a tool for taking long-form video content and quickly creating branded, shareable clips without requiring any technical editing experience or even transforming blog posts into videos. It works by finding the most valuable and engaging moments and automatically combining them with voiceovers, stock footage, and music.
A very popular cloud-based online design tool, Canva subscribers now have access to Magic Write, an AI-driven copywriting tool. From a simple prompt, it can create social posts, blog outlines, lists, content suggestions, captions, and more.
A free tool provided by the stockphotos.com image bank that automatically upscales and enhances images, meaning that low-resolution pictures can be magnified without losing detail. The FacePro feature is particularly suited to facial images. Paid-for options allow even more detail to be recreated.
This is a tool specifically designed to work with LinkedIn in order to help with creating, scheduling, and posting content, building relationships with your network and new contacts, and monitoring the impression your posts are making. The AI assists by providing inspiration for posts and stories.
A text-to-image platform with a comprehensive set of image-editing tools that lets you turn words into art and then fine-tune the results to get the images that you need.
This is an experimental ChatGPT-style conversational interface plugged into the Google Books library and capable of surfacing facts, quotes, and passages from literature. You can filter categories of books so that asking, for example, a historical question will only return answers contained in historical fiction or non-fiction.
AI-powered insights into the keywords you need to be targeting to ensure your search engine optimization campaigns are hitting the right notes. Automatically clusters keywords and determines search intent so you can see what terms are valuable and what is just noise.

Android app that lets users tap into AI effects to enhance the look of social profile pictures and avatars to attract more interaction and engagement.
Another GPT-3 powered chatbot interface, but this time focused on delivering accurate answers to complex questions. Unlike ChatGPT, it is happy to reveal the source of the information it uses, making it more useful for many kinds of research.
