Top 10 AI tools of 2023: ChatGPT, Midjourney, Bing, Gemini, Krutrim AI and more…

Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools having emerged into the spotlight, reflect a journey marked by years of extensive development and consistent efforts. With most significant AI tools released in 2023, and some in 2022, one can safely say that 2023 marks a significant year for AI.  

The generative AI tools – generating new content based on user inputs – that came out all through the year have made humanity rethink, in both optimistic and pessimistic ways, the very way of life it had once taken for granted. 

In today’s time, generative AI is performing, if not perfectly, certain tasks that were once thought to be impossible for computer software to accomplish – from engaging in meaningful conversations (as with ChatGPT) to creating stunning images (as in Midjourney), to generating music and synthetic voices.

OpenAI opened the doors

Founded by Sam Altman, Peter Thiel and Elon Musk among others, OpenAI became a light bearer of AI by releasing revolutionary tools such as ChatGPT and Dall-E 2, which now many top tech players are attempting to replicate.

The company April 6, 2022, released DALL-E 2, a generative AI tool for image generation. It quickly gained popularity within the designer community. Subsequently, other tools, such as Midjourney and Stable Diffusion, entered the game of generating images from text prompts using diffusion models. 

In the latter half of 2022, precisely on 30 November 2022, OpenAI released its conversational generative AI tool ChatGPT powered by GPT-3 large language model (LLM). It blew the internet up. Within five days of launching, i.e. on December 5, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman announced that it had crossed one million users. 

Two months after its release, ChatGPT became the ‘fastest-growing consumer application’ as the user base was estimated to have reached 100 million in January, a UBS study said.
