AI Magazine takes a look at the top 10 Gen AI platforms that businesses can use to augment and optimise both their operations and staff workflows

The AI boom is well underway, and Gen AI is seemingly the stalwart of the charge. In fact, a 2023 McKinsey studied predicted 2024 will see organisation put Gen AI centre stage as people continue to develop new tools.

Indeed, evidence shows workers are rushing to implement Gen AI into their workflows, whether as part of company policy or as part to optimise and augment their own work.

Therefore, with the floodgates open, it is important for organisations to know what Gen AI platforms are available on the market so they can understand what their staff are using, or decide what platform to pick if they go ahead with organisational AI upskilling.

With this in mind, AI Magazine weighs in on 10 of the leading Gen AI platforms and their capabilities and that you should consider when choosing which one to use.

Gen AI definition
  • Gen AI is a type of AI system designed to create new content, such as text, images, or code, based on patterns learned from existing data. Its application on a platform typically involves: Content creation, Personalisation, Automation; Design assistance and/or Code generation

8. AlphaCode 

Developed by Google DeepMind, AlphaCode is an advanced coding tool capable of generating computer programs at a competitive level. It has achieved an estimated rank within the top 54% of participants in programming competitions, demonstrating its ability to solve new problems that require a combination of critical thinking, logic, algorithmic knowledge, coding skills, and natural language understanding.

Google DeepMind, the team behind AlphaCode, consists of a diverse group of scientists, engineers, ethicists, and other professionals. Their collective goal is to solve intelligence, advance scientific knowledge, and benefit humanity through their innovations.

7. Adobe Sensei 

Adobe's Sensei platform harnesses the power of cloud AI and machine learning to enhance creative experiences. It aims to deepen insights, boost creative expression, streamline tasks and workflows, and enable real-time decision-making. Adobe has recently announced several Gen AI innovations across its Experience Cloud, set to redefine how businesses deliver customer experiences.

Adobe Sensei GenAI will utilise multiple large language models (LLMs) within Adobe Experience Platform, adapting to unique business needs. Additionally, Adobe Firefly, a new family of creative Gen AI models, focuses on generating images and text effects designed for safe commercial use.

6. DALL-E 3 

DALL-E, which began as a research project, was introduced by OpenAI in January 2021 and works on the ChatGPT suite of offerings. It has the remarkable ability to create images through natural language prompts, with new iterations having editing tools allowing you to edit certain elements of the photo's generation with a subsequent prompt. 

Following many iterations, including the DALL-E 2 system, which can combine concepts, attributes, and styles with greater sophistication, OpenAI has now released DALL-E 3. It is available to all ChatGPT Plus, Team and Enterprise users, as well as to developers through an API. This tool can also expand images beyond their original canvas, creating expansive new compositions.

Not only does it address ethical concerns about copying from artist's source material, but DALL-E 3 understands significantly more nuance and detail than previous systems, allowing users to easily translate ideas into 
exceptionally accurate images. They've also employed advanced techniques to prevent the generation of photorealistic images of real individuals' faces, including those of public figures.

5. Bing AI 

Microsoft launched its AI-powered Bing search engine in early 2023, integrating it into the Edge browser. This advanced search tool is capable of delivering improved search results, more comprehensive answers, a new chat experience, and content generation capabilities. These features are powered by OpenAI's latest and most advanced GPT-4 model.

In addition to enhanced search functionality, Bing AI includes the Bing Image Creator. This feature makes Bing one of the few search platforms capable of generating both written and visual content in one place, supporting over 100 languages.

4. GitHub Copilot 

GitHub Copilot, a cloud-based AI tool, is a collaborative effort between GitHub, OpenAI, and Microsoft. The Gen AI-powered code completion tool designed to help developers write code more efficiently is available through GitHub personal accounts (GitHub Copilot for Individuals) or through organisation accounts (GitHub Copilot for Business).

Trained on billions of lines of code, GitHub Copilot can transform natural language prompts into coding suggestions across dozens of programming languages. It analyses the context from comments and existing code to suggest individual lines and entire functions instantly.

3. Claude  

Anthropic, the company behind Claude, is committed to developing reliable AI systems and conducting research on AI opportunities and risks. Claude 3, their latest model, offers improved performance, longer response capabilities, and can be accessed via API or through a new public-facing beta website, It excels in various tasks, from engaging in sophisticated dialogue to generating creative content and following detailed instructions. Given that the models can understand more context, Anthropic says that they can therefore process more information.

Alongside Claude 2, Anthropic offers a more economical alternative called Claude Instant. This model is capable of handling a range of tasks including casual conversation, text analysis, summarisation, and document comprehension, providing businesses with flexible AI solutions to suit their needs.

2: Gemini

Google’s AI chatbot Gemini seeks to use a mix of database learning, compiled with live information, to provide its users with holistic and accurate answers to their queries. 

Spawned first as Bard in early 2023, it had moved Bard to PaLM 2, a new language model, and then refined and almost exactly a year later rebranded to Gemini.

Using RAG techniques, It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses, and is capable of following instructions and completing requests thoughtfully, answering questions and generating different creative text formats as well as answering mathematical questions and creating code. 

Gemini is currently available in hundreds of countries across the globe, and supports multiple different languages - giving it a more universal edge over its contemporaries.

In June 2020, OpenAI announced GPT-3, a language model trained on trillions of words from the Internet. 

The company announced that an associated API, named simply "the API", would form the heart of its first commercial product. 

The company, releasing ChatGPT in November 2022, was one of the first big Gen AI platforms, and went on to play a huge part of the AI boom the world currently sees itself in, and is why it is enjoying a premier spot.

With the tool capable of interacting conversationally, answering follow-up questions, admitting its mistakes, challenging incorrect premises, and rejecting inappropriate requests, the platform proves its use in both personal and business purposes. 

In May 2024, one of the Big Four accounting firms PWC announced it struck a deal with OpenAI, making it the largest user and first official reseller of ChatGPT Enterprise.

Deals like this, alongside prior multibillion-dollar investment from tech titans like Microsoft mean the company is always able to update and innovate, like launching its GPT-4o iteration of its deep learning model and its new Advanced Voice Mode able to understand and respond to speech.
