Can you imagine driving to an unknown destination before navigation apps existed? I, for one, can't.
I rely entirely on my Google Maps app. 🤳
Because it saves me time. Because it's always up to date with the latest traffic jams and road works on the way. Because it has all this data and is smart enough to make sense of it in seconds in order to help me solve my problem, which is to reach my destination. Swiftly, smoothly, and without friction.
It's a perfect example of AI being fully integrated into my daily life.
And it's by far not the only one.
As we experience a boom in the field of AI, many new, interesting, and unforeseen applications are being developed every day. 🪄
They range anywhere from business to deeply personal use cases, but the reasons why we use them are more or less the same:
AI has evolved to the point where it can assist humans with repetitive tasks, reduce human error, and thus save operational costs and resources.
So for the sake of this article (and my own curiosity), I delved into the bustling world of AI tools.
Some I already knew.
Like AI video generators, copywriting tools, or AI tools for generating art.
Others, I discovered anew. 👀
I had no idea that AI can write code by itself, create Excel formulas based on text input, and generate lifelong AI companions just like Spike Jonze predicted in Her, the film that was labelled as a sci-fi romantic drama when it came out in 2013. Emphasis on sci-fi.
So without further ado, join me in exploring different artificial intelligence tools, and don't forget to write down the ones you'd like to try — the list is long:
AI Video Generators and Editors
Video is by far the most popular medium of our time. It appeals to multiple senses, and we simply love watching video content. But when it comes to creating video… Not that fun anymore.

AI Image and Art Generators and Editors
Not too long ago, making art was the domain of a specific group of people. Not anymore! Today, with the help of generative AI, anyone can become an artist by writing a text prompt and letting the AI create the desired image. 🎨🖌
Are text-to-image technologies replacing artists? The answer is no. The thing is that AI-generated art opens up new, unprecedented possibilities for creative expression while being accessible to all.
AI image generators are evolving at a rapid pace; in the last year, major companies like Google, Open AI, and Stability AI have launched new models. The internet has been flooded with AI-generated art, showing its great potential for different aspects of content creation.
But artificial intelligence image generators don’t just generate abstract and artistic content. The AI models are trained to also generate photorealistic images that are indistinguishable from real photos.
Ready to start creating? Here’s a list of the most notable text-to-image generators out there right now:
17. DALL-E 2
The most recognizable of AI image generators out there is certainly DALL-E 2. This text to image system by Open AI can create realistic images and art based on text input. It’s a kind of magic, really.
You simply write what you want it to create, and you get your image right away. An astronaut riding a horse, photorealistic style? A fox sitting in a field in the style of Claude Monet? Yup, it’s that smart. And the best thing — anyone can play around with it.
18. Stable Diffusion
Similar to DALL-E 2 is Stable Diffusion. It’s a text-to-image model that creates images based on text descriptions. It can also be used to modify existing images following text-based prompts. You can try out how it works on their website. No registration or credit card is required, you only need an idea and a few words to describe the desired result.
Another AI art generator is Midjourney. It’s currently in beta, and anyone can start using it via their Discord channel. The trial version is limited to 25 queries. It takes about 1 minute to generate 4 four options based on your text request. But beware — it’s a pretty addictive tool, and you will end up wanting more than 25 images.
If you want to generate realistic images, this one’s for you. GauGAN turns your text prompts into detailed, photorealistic images. You can test it out on their website — no registration is required for a free live demo.
21. The Next Rembrand

Another free AI art generator is neural.love. It works in a browser, and its built-in prompt generator makes it really easy to use. You can choose between different styles (painting, photo, sci-fi, anime…) and then write or narrate your text description. You can also select the dimensions of the output you want.
23. This Beach Does Not Exist
This AI-generated art has a common theme: beaches. Beaches that do not exist, to be precise. The model was trained with a dataset of more than 20.000 images of real beaches, based on which the AI generates new, random images of beaches that do not actually exist. Ready for a dip in the ocean? Check out the nicest beaches here.

AI Writing Tools and Text Generators
Writing is an important part of everyone’s job today. Emails, reports, social media captions, blog posts… And it takes a lot of time to ideate, draft, edit and format different texts. ✍
AI writing makes the process way faster and smoother. No matter which AI text generator you choose, it works on the same premise: You provide the prompts for your text, and the AI generates the outcome within a few seconds.
If you’ve never tried AI writing before, you’ll be surprised by the quality of the results, as AI is not only capable of generating general texts, but also of adding a certain tone, style and spark of creativity.
So what’s going on in the background? AI writing programs use natural language processing (NLP). In short, it is a way to get computers to understand human language.This can be used to automatically translate text, for example, or to figure out what a person is saying when they speak. Most AI text generators are based on GPT-3, the largest machine learning model used for NLP. 🧠
