The 8 Coolest AI Tools You Probably Didn't Know Existed

AI-8 coolest tools

AI tools have come a long way since their inception in the 1940s when Alan Turing first introduced concepts of machine learning and intelligence. If he were alive today, Turing would likely be in awe of the advancements made in this field.

While AI has been around for decades, it really boomed in 2020 with the debut of GPT-3 and its impressive generative AI features. Following this, there was a rapid surge in the development of innovative AI tools.

Today, new AI tools emerge daily, and it’s staggering to realize there are currently over 14,000 AI startups just in the U.S.!

So, faced with so many options, where should you begin when searching for AI tools?

This article isn’t a bad place to start, we’ve identified and highlighted 8  AI tools that might have escaped your radar until now.
