New tools for AI
Projects are multiplying around ChatGPT, OpenAI’s revolutionary artificial intelligence! Independent developers already offer a Chrome extension that allows voice chat with computer software and artificial intelligence.
OpenAI’s conversational AI ChatGPT continues to be emulated across the web! Introduced to the general public at the beginning of December, it impresses with its capabilities and ease of use. Indeed, AI can type text in seconds that would take hours for a human to type, answer complex questions, code, solve equations, engage in debates, and even refuse to answer polls. it is considered wrong, all in a natural way (see our article). It is so natural that it is sometimes difficult to distinguish his answers from those given by humans. Cover letter, DIY tutorials, press articles, scripts for TV series… The uses are numerous, and it’s no surprise that students are the first to benefit from them. They see it as a valuable time saver, as well as an opportunity to get a good price without much effort. Of course, ChatGPT is not immune to mistakes – it happens very often – and still has a rather poor style and vocabulary – but the AI remains perfect for the beginning of clear and structured thinking. , or at least it makes sense. the backbone that holds it together. But the fact is, given the speed with which this technology is developing, it should soon be able to cheat—much to the chagrin of teachers whose cheating tools can’t detect cheating. So it’s no surprise that some developers are already using AI to develop different tools and get the most out of it.
ChatGPT software: Desktop software for Windows, macOS and Linux
ChatGPT is available online via a web browser, but an independent developer has developed a desktop app for Windows, macOS, and Linux. A way to have AI while enjoying a few more features. Thus, the user can keep the application window in the foreground thanks to the Stay on Top function, which turns out to be practical enough to make full use of the technology. Other nice additions: the ability to save different replies in PNG or PDF format, so you can follow their exchanges and share them with someone else in the form of a link.
It is also possible to create custom commands to ask ChatGPT questions faster with predefined questions using command commands. Many ready-to-use models are already on sale, proving that this formula is of interest to many people. Note that the software is open source and on GitHub, which means that anyone can access the source code and modify it, thereby creating new features to adapt the tool to their needs. The app is still in its infancy – version 0.72 was released on December 27th – but given the enthusiasm generated by ChatGPT, we imagine it will develop very quickly. Therefore, it is more likely that the mobile app will appear on Android and iOS soon, whether it is offered by an independent developer or OpenAI.
Talk-to-ChatGPT: An extension to chat out loud with AI
ChatGPT also has its own extension for Chrome, Talk-to-ChatGPT, so that the user can chat with the AI through their microphone. Thanks to Google Chrome’s voice recognition and text-to-speech technology — which allows the extension to support multiple languages, including French — it responds with a synthesized voice. A way to have a more natural, interactive and fluid “chat” with ChatGPT without typing with your keyboard.
The extension comes in the form of a small window on the right with various tabs that allow you to:
- Enable or disable voice recognition: this option allows you to ask questions out loud to ChatGPT using the microphone.
- Enable or disable ChatGPT Text-to-Speech: This feature allows you to read ChatGPT responses using Google Text-to-Speech.
- Stop ChatGPT’s responses being read aloud immediately: This button allows you to stop ChatGPT’s responses being read aloud at any time.
- Open the extension settings: it lets you choose the AI’s text-to-speech voice and language, as well as set its speed when reading aloud.
The extension is free and available as open source on GitHub. To install it on Chrome, just visit the Chrome Web Store.
