5 open-source project ideas for Generative AI

Generative AI has opened up a world of possibilities for language-based applications, from chatbots to content creation. As these models become increasingly sophisticated, there is growing interest in exploring new ways to leverage their capabilities. To that end, I’ve compiled a list of 5 open-source project ideas that could help push the boundaries of what’s possible with generative AI. Whether you’re a developer, data analyst, or just a curious individual, these ideas offer a glimpse into the exciting future of this rapidly-evolving field.

  1. FactCheckGPT — A tool that checks the output of the LLM against factual sources and provides a factuality score together with sources. This open-source tool can be used to execute code outputs and automatically report potential errors or feed them back to ChatGPT.
  2. Streamlit-LLM— An open-source package that streamlines the process of building AI chat or Generative AI web apps for companies. Could be used both by idea stage startups for quick demos as well as for building internal tools.
  3. GPT-OS — A plugin that enables users to interact with their operating system using ChatGPT. This tool allows users to easily change their desktop wallpaper, update settings, find files using their content or metadata description, create and structure folders, and more.
  4. ScraperGPT — A chrome extension or a SaaS tool that scrapes data from webpages and provides the results in structured formats such as Excel, CSV, or AirTable. Users can describe the desired output structure and what they want to scrape using simple language.
  5. GPT-Stats — An open-source tool that enables statisticians to execute even the most advanced statistical techniques on their data using natural language. The tool provides a chat interface that removes the need to learn a new tool to analyze data and run tests and models.

I actually have tested ChatGPT for 4) ScraperGPT and 5) GPT-Stats myself to see whether we can integrate it with Anania. At this point, it seems ChatGPT output can miss some key content from the website and result in incomplete scraping or produce wrong statistical analysis when advanced questions are asked. However, I am sure that with enough commitment there will be open-source projects around those ideas soon enough.

It would be super-exciting to see a new Windows release with ChatGPT integration by Microsoft. With a 75% market share in desktop PCs, that would make AI accessible to 3 out of 4 people who own a personal computer.
