If you’re an avid user of AI, you’ve most likely come across ChatGPT. Yes, the leading AI chatbot that answers your questions or writes anything you ask. You can ask it to develop systems or make your complaints more convincing. It's everywhere, and it's great.

This powerful AI tool has helped us step up our game and make our lives so much easier. But there are still other AI tools that you can use besides ChatGPT. While you can find thousands if you just research for a few minutes, these are my personal favorites.

Here are 17 AI tools that can help you in similar or completely different ways than ChatGPT can. Don't limit yourself to the biggest one – try them all.

ChatGPT and Other AI Tools

ChatGPT is a fantastic AI tool by OpenAI that has truly transformed how we do different types of work—blogging, content generation, coding, and other basic assistive tasks. But let’s be real. Even in its latest model GPT-4, it still has limitations in fulfilling all our needs.

Some of ChatGPT’s limitations:

  • Providing more direct and specific responses for highly specialized scenarios (e.g., CRM, law, etc.)
  • Jotting down notes or recording meeting minutes
  • Tracking time

This isn’t to downplay the capabilities of ChatGPT, but we can all agree that there are still other tasks that other AI tools do better than ChatGPT or that ChatGPT can’t do at this moment. While we can expect ChatGPT to take another big leap anytime soon or later, here are the 17 incredible AI tools you should try.

Painfinder is a simple web-based app that answers any questions related to pain points encountered by users in different types of software. This tool uses real reviews by real users of existing software as a reference to provide relevant answers.

What you should take note though, is that it’s particularly designed to tackle pain points only, so you can’t ask or prompt it to generate original content for you. When you do, what it will do instead is provide you answers that include the keywords you used. So, Painfinder is useful only if you just let it serve its purpose.

Monica is an AI virtual assistant that can assist you with writing, researching, processing files, and other computer tasks. It is powered by advanced AI models such as GPT-4, Claude, and Bard. This all-in-one chatbot can do pretty much anything that other AI tools also do.

Like ChatPDF, it can read, analyze, summarize, or edit content for you, except it can also do the same with images and videos. It also helps you with translation and crafting your emails. Monica also checks your grammar like Grammarly and creates AI art for you based on prompts like other AI art generators.

Hermes 13-b

Nous Hermes 13B is a state-of-the-art language model that especially excels in generating creative responses. It can use storytelling techniques to craft captivating narratives, chat in engaging dialogues, and be integrated with role-playing games (RPGs) or interactive fiction to generate dynamic responses or create twists to give players or readers a unique experience.

This AI model fine-tuned in over 300,000 instructions also has a low hallucination rate and doesn’t have censorship mechanisms as OpenAI does. It’s basically GPT-4 on steroids that can be the creatives’ best buddy during their creative endeavors.

So, Which One is the Best?

All AI tools are good in their own ways, but if I have to rank them based on what they can do and their effectiveness, two of them compete for the top-tier ranking, namely Forefront and Monica. These two have similar features that make them an all-around AI tool, but what gives one of them an edge over the other is its ability to access the internet—that is Forefront.

Forefront also promotes collaboration, which positions itself way ahead of ChatGPT and other competing tools. However, the verdict still depends on varying use cases and user preferences. If you don’t attend meetings or need time tracking while you work, Fireflies and Timely may not be as useful to you. If you’re business-minded, you’ll likely find Mixo the best AI tool out there.

So for you, which of these incredible AI tools do you think is the best alternative to ChatGPT?

Anyway, I hope this article helps you discover the best tool for you to boost your productivity and work efficiency. And if you’re sick of ChatGPT, definitely give some or at least one of these AI tools a try!
