Autonomous Agents aka AI Agents are like your own person assistants. They can do anything you program them to do and we mean anything… From responding to emails, to writing code to even running marketing campaigns. Entire companies will be built with agents doing all the work. It remains to be seen how countries will choose to impose taxes on these AI agents.

There are also many nefarious use cases for these agents such as phishing schemes, more sophisticated robocalls, and an army of unlimited hackers.

BabyAGI is a slimmed down version of an agent called Task-driven Autonomous Agent. BabyAGI is a helpful digital assistant that can complete tasks and take actions on the internet. It’s not a really an artificial general intelligence (AGI) as the name suggests. BabyAGI is very simple to use, in fact it’s creator Yohei Nakajima is a hobbyist coder and a full time investor.

BabyAGI helps you link together a series of prompts, also known as prompt chaning without the need for plugins. Think of prompt chaining as takin the output of one request to an AI agent and then using that as the input for the next task. Ex. I can ask GPT to write me a tweet on cats, then take that tweet and ask another AI agent to post it to twitter.

AutoGPT is a competitor to BabyAGI but also the category that BabyAGI falls under. It was created by Toran Bruce Richards but is more complicated to use as it’s borrowing programming patterns from the video game industry.

These tools, such as BabyAGI, AgentGPT, Godmode, Do Anything Machine, Microsoft’s JARVIS, AI Legion, CAMEL, and GPTRPG, are quickly evolving and offer various features, from task automation to role-playing with AI agents. While some are open-source projects, others are web-based or part of ongoing research. These AI tools are changing the way we interact with technology and can help solve tasks more effectively.

If you choose to use it with OpenAI’s models with your agent, keep a tab on your usage as you can easily run up a huge bill.
