Most popular AI apps in 2022

Last year was huge for AI adoption. We made a summary of the best and most popular apps of 2022 for you to review and prepare for 2023!

2022 was a breakthrough year in AI

We learned that Generative AI has a massive impact on everything from creative industries to business operations. Millions of people are actively using AI tools today which shows that our society is ready to welcome AI into their daily lives. Gartner estimates that by 2025 Generative AI will account for 10% of all data produced, and for 30% of all outbound marketing messages from large brands.

In this blog post, we will cover some of the most popular apps in 2022 to help you prepare for 2023, which is certainly going to be another pivotal year for AI.

This overview will cover applications in the following fields of Generative AI:

Text

It’s not just businesses that can benefit from text creation with Generative AI in the form of chatbots or copywriting tools. Anyone can use it to create essays, creative stories, character descriptions, translations, and much more.

GPT-3

This large language model from OpenAI can generate human-like text. You can use it for many things, like letting it suggest slogans or simply asking it about certain topics. It is very general-purpose text generation.

Stable Diffusion

AI art has taken the internet by the storm this summer. With text-to-image models like Stable Diffusion, you can easily create pictures by entering a text prompt (like we did for the image in our recent blog post on how to build conversational AI on WhatsApp). Oh, and be sure to add a negative prompt, telling the Stable Diffusion model what you don’t want to have in the image.

Code

AI is becoming an increasingly important tool for software developers, increasing efficiency and accuracy. It can not only speed up the coding process, but also fully automate it.

GitHub Copilot

The AI pair programmer helps you write code faster and with less work. It draws context from comments and code and suggests lines and functions. A few weeks ago, a new brush feature was released to help you fix bugs and make your code cleaner and more robust.

While GitHub Copilot helps you with coding, ChatGPT can generate code from scratch. Just tell it what you want to code, and it will do the job. It can also find bugs in your code.

Speech

Speech synthesis is the artificial production of human speech, allowing you to create voice-overs in a click. It is becoming increasingly popular and you’ve probably heard AI voices in social media videos, ads, call centers or smart assistants in the last month.

Resemble.ai

With this voice generation tool, you can create human-like voice recordings in different languages. You can integrate custom voices into your favorite tools and even clone your own voice by recording samples. (Pro tip from my first-hand experience: use a good microphone).

Music

There are tons of AI-powered music plugins that are very helpful tools for producers. But of course, if you have no idea how to create beats, AI can generate music from scratch.

Mubert

Mubert generates music tracks in an instant. You can select genres, moods or activities and set a duration. The music is royalty free, but in order to use it, you have to pay for a premium subscription. By the way, a text-to-music feature launched a few days ago!

A Glance into the Future of Gaming

Being one of the largest entertainment industries in the world, it’s only a matter of time before AI fundamentally changes gaming. Imagine how immersive a video game would be if NPCs were controlled by Conversational AI, resulting in smarter behavior, more creative decisions, and unprecedented originality in their own backstory. Buckle up, because that future is sure to come very soon.
