Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI): Try It

Explore AI Tools and Apps

Resources on this page are developing and changing rapidly. This page links to several current AI tools that support diverse content creation and development in various ways and across several modalities. Some AI generators require users to pay a fee or create a personally identifiable account, others are openly available and quick to explore. We hope this serves as a useful entry point into what will surely be a long and dynamic conversation.

GPT-4 (fee-based)

Per OpenAI:

GPT-4 is a large multimodal model (accepting image and text inputs, emitting text outputs) that, while less capable than humans in many real-world scenarios, exhibits human-level performance on various professional and academic benchmarks. GPT-4 is more creative and collaborative than ever before. It can generate, edit, and iterate with users on creative and technical writing tasks, such as composing songs, writing screenplays, or learning a user’s writing style.

Despite its capabilities, GPT-4 has similar limitations as earlier GPT models. Most importantly, it still is not fully reliable (it “hallucinates” facts and makes reasoning errors).

For paying customers, GPT-4 will now power ChatGPT, which has already been incorporated into commercial applications.

Note Taking & Transcription Tools

Lists generator and organizer that uses AI-driven tools such as the Magic ToDo List, Compiler, Formalizer, and Chef.



ChatPDF is an AI-powered app that allows users to interact with PDF files as if the information in these files was processed by a human being (1). It is essentially a tool that can summarize and extract necessary information from PDF files (2). Users can upload a PDF file to the platform and start asking questions about its contents (2). ChatPDF analyzes the provided PDF file and provides a summary of the major focus of the article and generates three questions that users may ask (3). Users can also pose a question based on the article or that is connected to the topic, and ChatPDF will provide a response to that as well (4). (generated by Perplexity AI)


This tool plugs into popular video conferencing tools like Zoom, Teams, or Webex and automates the process of taking notes and creating transcriptions. It also analyzes conversations to provide insights into the dynamics and decision-making that are going on in your conversations.

Sound AI Tools


Automated music generator – create royalty-free AI music by simply making decisions about the genre of music you want to create, the instruments that will be used, the mood you want to create, and the length of the track. Then sit back and let the AI compose unique tracks.


An audio recording and editing platform with integrated AI tools that helps you create clear, super-smooth recordings that sound as if they’ve been edited professionally, automating tasks like cleaning up messy sounds and creating transcripts.


This is a text-to-speech engine that makes it simple to create natural-sounding synthetic vocal recordings in 15 languages from a choice of over 100 voices and dialects. This output can easily be incorporated into automated marketing or video content, automating the process of creating narration and voiceovers.

This tool uses a neural network system called Phoenix to automate audio source separation. This involves extracting elements such as vocals, music, or even specific instrumental tracks like drumbeats or basslines from any audio or video content.

Glaze is a tool to help artists to prevent their artistic styles from being learned and mimicked by new AI-art models such as MidJourney, Stable Diffusion and their variants. It is a collaboration between the University of Chicago SAND Lab and members of the professional artist community, most notably Karla Ortiz. Glaze has been evaluated via a user study involving over 1,100 professional artists. At a high level, here's how Glaze works:

  • Suppose we want to protect artist Karla Ortiz's artwork in her online portfolio from being taken by AI companies and used to train models that can imitate Karla's style.
  • Our tool adds very small changes to Karla's original artwork before it is posted online. These changes are barely visible to the human eye, meaning that the artwork still appears nearly identical to the original, while still preventing AI models from copying Karla's style. We refer to these added changes as a "style cloak" and changed artwork as "cloaked artwork." (Glaze, What is Glaze)
