Battle of the AI assistants
The AI tools changing the game this week
Welcome back! The AI world has a big birthday coming up this week. Tomorrow, ChatGPT is celebrating its one-year anniversary. Personally, I can’t believe it’s been just 12 months since chatbots took the world by storm. I’m curious: What’s the biggest thing ChatGPT has changed for you?
P.S. Notice something different? We got a little makeover. :) Let me know what you think of it!
Copilot streamlines Microsoft 365
After launching on Windows 11 in November, Microsoft’s AI assistant Copilot is now available to test on Windows 10.
How it works: Copilot integrates with Microsoft 365 apps to: summarize documents and generate text in Word, draft and summarize emails in Outlook, create PivotTables in Excel, and so much more. The bot can even attend meetings in Microsoft Teams on your behalf, record them, and generate meeting transcripts with action items.
In Windows 10, you can access the chatbot via the button on the right side of your taskbar. (Pricing: paid)
Duet AI is your new Google Workspace buddy
Duet AI is an add-on for Google Workplace Enterprise—AKA Google’s version of Microsoft’s Copilot.
How it works: Duet AI integrates with your Google Workplace to perform tasks across its apps. Duet can draft, proofread, and edit documents and emails in Docs and Gmail; create custom images for Google Slides presentations; organize spreadsheet content in Google Sheets; and upgrade Google Meet with custom backgrounds, video quality fixes, meeting captions generated and translated in real-time. (Pricing: paid)
Simplescraper turns websites into GPT training data
How it works: Simplescraper is a Chrome extension that converts website content into JSON and CSV files (AKA data files that can be used as training data). Once you’ve downloaded the files, you can upload them to train your custom GPT.
Bonus: Simplescraper also provides a number of options for using the data you scraped—like saving it directly to Google Sheets, Zapier, Airtable, and more. (Pricing: freemium)
The demand for 3D content is exploding across industries like gaming, animation, simulation, and 3D printing. But the 3D production pipeline is time- and labor-intensive, with traditional 3D workflows often taking days or weeks to produce assets.
CSM solves this with an AI tool that lets anyone generate game-engine ready 3D models from text, image, and video prompts—in mere minutes. CSM assets can easily be re-textured, animated, and further customized. Say goodbye to navigating complex 3D modeling software.
New users can try this out with one month free on the Maker Plan.
