The famous saying that sometimes changes can happen over decades and sometimes decades of change can happen in weeks perfectly describes the current situation with artificial intelligence (AI). Over the last few months, we’ve witnessed unprecedented developments in AI, starting with the launch of Chat GPT, followed by GPT-4, and now, the remarkable Auto GPT.
Auto GPT: The AI Game-Changer
Auto GPT has been the talk of the town since industry leaders like Nathan Lands stumbled upon it and shared their excitement on Twitter. As an open-source Python application first developed by Significant Gravitas, it has piqued the interest of the general public and inspired developers to build on its capabilities.
Auto GPT Harnesses GPT-4 for Autonomous Action
At its core, the new GPT utilizes GPT-4 to act autonomously without human input. This groundbreaking AI allows users to create AI agents that can replicate, collaborate, and tirelessly work on tasks until completion – all without any further human intervention.

A Memory Upgrade
Unlike its predecessor, GPT-4, these autonomous GPT agents possess memory capabilities. This means that these agents can remember past tasks, store information, and resume work as needed.
Access to the Internet: A Powerful Asset
Perhaps the most notable feature of this new GPT is its ability to access the internet, which allows agents to acquire information as needed. This development has led to countless applications, such as sales research, podcast creation, market research, customer service, social media management, and financial advising.
Is AGI on the Horizon?
The rapid advancements in this new tool have left many wondering if artificial general intelligence (AGI) is just around the corner. While we may not have achieved AGI just yet, Auto GPT undoubtedly brings us a step closer.
Auto GPT’s autonomous agents, memory, recursive self-improvement, internet access, and relentless drive to achieve objectives have led to fears of runaway AGI and the potential consequences for humanity. With the guardrails that once protected us from such scenarios seemingly removed, only time will tell if Auto GPT marks the beginning of the end for workforces or the world as we know it.
