The world of Artificial Intelligence continues to fascinate us. We collected 7 free artificial intelligence(AI) tools, most of them easy to use, and some more sophisticated… like building ML models. We did try to be unique and avoid many of the AI platforms you’ll find in most posts of Best AI Tools. Additionally we wanted them to be free for testing, without caveats like adding your credit card number. Some of these we use ourselves (eg. Lumen, JADBio) so it was important for us to include them as we truly value what they have to offer.
The list is not extensive but we plan to come back to the topic often. Consider this version one.
GFP-GAN — Photo Restoration
GFP-GAN is a new Free AI tool that can fix most old photos instantly. GFP-GAN (Generative Facial Prior-Generative Adversarial Network) was developed by Tencent researchers, by merging info from two AI models to fill in a photo’s missing details with realistic detail in a few seconds, all the while maintaining high accuracy and quality. In this video (2:26) Louis Bouchard enthusiastically describes how well the project worked at photo restoration with details on how to use it for free. The results are very impressive and works well even with very low quality images.
You can try a demo of GFP-GAN for free. The creators have also posted their code to let anyone implement the restoration tech in their own projects.
Copy.ai — Copy Writer
With this one, you literally just have to “copy”. This AI-based copywriting tool generates unique content that you can post on your blog, social media or even for a video by simply providing a short description of the topic you want content on.
Copy.AI could be helpful for content creators. The tool can help a user write Instagram captions, blog posts, product descriptions, Facebook content, start-up ideas, and many more.
Sign up for an account, give a description of your topic of interest, and the AI tool will generate content based on your description. Awesome tool that will be handy in the future of digital content.
Note: This ^ is not the only tool that uses AI to create content. There are several out there, some better than others so we suggest you give them all a try.
plus Notion.AI that just arrived and we’ve given it a whole paragraph below.
JADBio — AutoML
JADBio is a user-friendly machine learning platform that needs no expertise in coding, but is equipped with powerful knowledge extraction tools. Although it is purpose-built for biotech and multi-omics you can basically upload any kind of curated data and analyze it. Very useful for students who want to dive into machine learning or people who want to build a predictive model, for example which potato will yield the best fry (binary classification). They offer a life-time free account, and the use is pretty straight forward.
DALL-E 2 — Image Creator
We’ve guess you’ve heard all the hype with this one. DALL·E 2 by Open AI is a new AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. It can create original, realistic images and art from a text description. It can combine concepts, attributes, and styles. Worth playing around, the website has several examples to inspire you. It’s completely free to use.
Notion.ai — Copy Writer
Notion is testing a new feature called Notion AI to create content. All you have to do is tell the app what you want – a blog post, a recruiting email template, a list of great business books to read- and the app actually creates the content right in front of your eyes. A lot of users love Notion, for note taking, and this will definitely take it to the next level. We signed up to test it but are on the waiting list (as of Nov.16th) for now.
Lumen5 — Video Creator
Lumen5 is an online video-making platform with tools that allow you to effortlessly make videos, in a few steps. It includes great templates and various formats for different social media platforms. The AI comes in when you upload a transcript; it creates the whole video sequence, including images, using your imported transcript. A great and easy to use tool, especially if you want to create fast content for social media platforms. Lumen also offers an extensive range of images and video to include in your final video.
Lalal.ai — Audio Stem Splitter
Lalal uses artificial intelligence to remove vocals, conduct music source separation fast, easy, and precise stem extraction. You can remove vocal, instrumental, drums, bass, piano, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and synthesizer tracks without quality loss. Makes creativity painless!
You can start playing around as it gives you 10 minutes free but the paying models are also very reasonable. 15 euro one-time-fee for 90 minutes of processing will get you far.
