Directories of AI Tools

Comprehensive guides to AI tools by discipline like images, design, gaming, photography, video, etc.

Writing Tools

Based on Large Language Models

  • ChatGpt (can still create a free account - high volume of traffic so not accessible at times.)
  • AI Text Classifier ("the AI Text Classifier is a fine-tuned GPT model that predicts how likely it is that a piece of text was generated by AI from a variety of sources, such as ChatGPT." Created by OpenAI, makers of ChatGPT - 26% accuracy at the moment.)
  • SudoWrite (built on top of ChatGPT by and for creative writers - free trial, then paid.)
  • Explain Paper (upload an academic paper, highlight a portion of the text, and then have the AI explain it to you in plain English. You can also engage in conversation with the paper, asking it questions about content.)
  • PerplexityAI (like ChatGPT meets Google.)
  • Elicit: The AI Research Assistant (“Elicit uses language models to help you automate research workflows, like parts of a literature review. Elicit can find relevant papers without perfect keyword matches, summarize takeaways from the paper specific to your question, and extract key information from the papers. While answering questions with research is the main focus of Elicit, there are also other research tasks that help with brainstorming, summarization, and text classification.”)
  • LibAnswers Chatbot
  • GPTZero for Education (AI detection tool, paid but discount available for educators.)
  • HeyPi (an Ai designed to be your personal assistant - supportive + smart)
  • Scite AI (includes a reference check feature)
  • Writefull (provides comprehensive and accurate language feedback)

Basic AI Tools

Visual Art Tools

  • Stable Attribution (AI + community effort to trace AI-generated art back to its human originators. About the same success rate right now as AI Text Classifier - 26%.)
  • DALL-E or DALL-E 2 OpenAI (an AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language.)
  • (the Stable Diffusion search engine.)
  • Midjourney (image generation/visual art tool.)
  • Glaze (tool in beta from the University of Chicago that disrupts generative AI’s process for images.)
  • Tome (prompt AI and it will generate a powerpoint for you)
  • Move AI (suitless motion capture for animation)

Other AI Tools

  • Fingerprint for Success (AI Success Coaching program.)
  • To Teach.AI ("Use artificial intelligence to create personalized materials and exercises that are tailored to the interests and needs of your students." Free and paid accounts.)
  • NoleJ (Free to educators) OpenAI-based instructional content generator for educators

Protect Art From AI

  • Glaze (a free (non-commercial) app for artists (download link here) to combat the theft of their ‘artistic IP’ — scraped into data-sets to train AI tools designed to mimic visual style — via the application of a high-tech “cloaking” technique.)
  • Nightshade (an offensive tool that artists can use as a group to disrupt models that scrape their images without consent)
