10 Generative AI Tools for Business

from | 27 July 2023 | Basics

In today's world, the use of artificial intelligence in companies is becoming increasingly important in order to remain competitive as a company in the long term. One of the most exciting applications of artificial intelligence is the generation of content by machines. With the right Generative AI tools, businesses can increase productivity, save time and create innovative content. These tools can create content such as text, images or speech based on large AI models and are sometimes able to interact with users. In this article, we present 10 of the best generative AI tools that can optimise business processes and take creativity to a new level.

Who, where, what, when and how? Especially in large companies, a lot of time is spent finding documents, links, knowledge or even the right people. But with AI Enterprise Search like the AI search Glean, this becomes child's play. The search engine is able to understand content, make connections and present the most relevant results. This saves valuable time and increases efficiency in everyday work. Glean also offers a personalised search that is geared to the individual needs of the user. And the best part is: thanks to machine learning, the search improves with every new user and every query. This makes searching and finding child's play.

#2 Interactive Chatbots

Chatbots are like little helpers that can save a company a lot of time and effort. With Generative AI chatbots from companies like ultimate.ai, you can have automated conversations to handle recurring questions and requests. What's more, chatbots can tailor the writing style and language to the individual customer, providing a personalised experience. This makes customer service a breeze! With ultimate.ai's platform, it is possible to effortlessly create and train your own chatbots, harnessing the power of Generative AI models like ChatGPT. This way, customer problems can be solved faster and the number of questions to be answered manually can be significantly reduced.

#3 Presentation Generator

Presentations are currently the most widely used form of presenting ideas, concepts, data and results in the business world. For most users, creating these is often tedious and lengthy - even if the information and storyline are clear in advance. Since Generative AI masters the necessary disciplines (storyline creation, text creation and image generation), AI is already available to assist in the creation of all kinds of presentations. The start-up Beautiful.ai, known for its intuitive presentation designer tool, has integrated Generative AI into its platform with DesignerBot, for example: a storyline can be created, text styles and design can be adapted to the occasion and CI, and AI-generated images can be integrated. 

#4 Coding Copilot

Generative AI is now also proving to be a diligent helper in programming: integrations such as GitHub Copilot X allow the full potential of contextual generative AI to be used for code creation and correction. Github Copilot is able to solve errors in the code, create code on instruction or write unit tests for certain snippets. This significantly speeds up the programming workflow, leaving more time to deal with code optimisations and the architectural implementation of the project instead of looking for the error in the details.

#5 Text Summarization

Filtering out the most important facts from texts is essential in many industries. In the insurance industry, for example, millions of claims reports, expert opinions and many other documents have to be processed every day. With Generative AI, this process can be accelerated many times over: language models such as GPT-3 are able to summarise texts quickly, paying attention to important details and summarising the key points. This efficient way of summarising text is just as interesting when reading manuals, long documents or even emails. AI therefore helps the user to save time and nerves in order to know what is really relevant in the end. 

So - TL;DR: Generative AI like GPT-3 can help to quickly summarise texts and filter out important details in many industries. This saves time and nerves and makes it possible to concentrate on the essentials.

#6 Office Suite Add-ons

Apps that are used daily, such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel & Co. also benefit from Generative AI: the integration of AI into these apps that are used daily makes it possible to create drafts more quickly, summarise meeting notes, identify to-do's and much more. This saves time when creating texts in Word or conducting meetings in Microsoft Teams, for example, and lets employees concentrate on the essentials.

#7 Image Generation

Image generation offers especially for marketing departments, freelancers and illustrators the possibility to quickly develop designs, stock photos and illustrations. Models such as Midjourney, DALL:E 2 and Stable Diffusion offer the possibility to create image content on any topic by means of prompts (instructions). Numerous tools and plug-ins for well-known image editing programmes such as Photoshop, Illustrator & Co. speed up image creation and editing extremely. Even as a layman, good usable marketing content for blog articles, image series, presentations etc. can be created with the image generators - depending on the model used, even without copy-right restrictions on use. By the way, all the images in this article were generated with Midjourney 😉

#8 Email Assistant

Documenting meeting results, writing standard replies or cold-calling emails - all of this takes up a lot of time in daily working life. So why do it all yourself? With email assistants, the time spent composing emails can be significantly reduced: With Generative AI, an email assistant generates a complete email from key points, offers suggestions for the next sentence or changes the writing style and form to suit the other person. The Finnish start-up Flowrite, for example, has set itself the goal of achieving the seemingly impossible "Inbox Zero" by speeding up the process of composing and replying to emails.

#9 AI Writing Assistant

In the business world, time is money - and time spent writing can tie up valuable resources. Fortunately, there is now a solution: AI Writing Assistants. These clever tools use artificial intelligence to make writing faster and easier than ever before. Whether it's writing marketing copy or even entire articles, an AI Writing Assistant can help streamline the entire writing process. One example of this is the company Copy.ai, which offers an AI Writing Assistant based on ar specialised in a variety of text types. The assistant can generate content such as blog posts, product descriptions or social media posts quickly and easily. Another advantage of AI Writing Assistants is their ability to optimise texts to suit specific target groups or readers. This allows companies to ensure that their messages reach the right people and are communicated in a language that is understandable and appealing to the target audience.

#10 Text-to-Speech Generation

Podcast, but no time? No problem! AI Text-to-Speech tools make it easy to turn your favourite articles and blog posts into a podcast. With Generative AI and natural speech synthesis, texts can be converted into speech that sounds like a human voice. Best of all, there's no need to even invest time in recording your own voice. AI text-to-speech tools do the work and you can focus on other tasks while your article is converted into a podcast, languages are transcribed or how-to's are voice-over. For example, the company Descript uses this technology and offers the possibility to convert texts into a podcast with their AI-based tool and to personalise them with different voices and styles.
