Hello, and welcome to a another edition of the Tech for Finance Newsletter, where we’re looking Autonomous AI.
Autonomous AI, is AI that can be given an instruction, and then left to carry out that instruction until the goal is complete.
This may not seem like a big thing.
But it is…
Right now, with ChatGPT, you enter a single prompt, get your result, and then ask another prompt.
An autonomous AI agent can take an instruction and write it’s own prompts until a goal has been achieved.
Auto-GPT, is an example of one of these Autonomous programs, driven by ChatGPT-4, that chains together LLM (Large Language Model) "thoughts", to autonomously achieve whatever goal you set.
If you go to the Auto-GPT Github page here, and scroll down you’ll be able to see a demo of it in action.
The example instruction is to search the internet to find an upcoming event, and then invent an original recipe to suit it.
Well, we might be getting closer to getting rid of those boring repetitive tasks you and your team do.
Right now, it’s still very early, the AI agents can get confused, and it can get very expensive to run lots of AI calls.
PLUS - With Auto-GPT you need to have access to the ChatGPT-4 API which not everyone does (I don’t).
But let’s say you DID have access to something like this in the not too distant future:
OK, maybe we’re jumping the gun a bit with that.
But you could definitely:
