HuggingGPT: one chatbot to rule them all

PLUS: No more blurry Zoom calls

Good morning human brains, welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.

Here’s what’s up:

  • Zoom! Enhance! just became a real technology 🕵️

  • One chatbot to rule them all 💍

  • An AI tool that automatically animates CGI characters 🎥

  • A cartoonist from 1923 predicted the singularity in 2023 ✏️

ReBotNet: No more blurry Zoom Calls.

ReBotNet can make live streams and video calls look better by using AI to sharpen your image in real-time.

It’s basically the “Zoom! Enhance!” meme from CSI brought to life.

ReBotNet works almost as well as the best available image-restoration models while being much much faster.

The RVRT model is slightly better, but not as fast as ReBotNet.

Don’t forget: AI can’t find information that isn’t there. It CAN make up information if you let it and that can be dangerous. This tech is awesome for making your video calls sharper, but it will never reveal a killer’s face hidden in the reflection of a screw.

CSI: Zoom! Enhance!



It stands for State of the Art and is often used in AI research to indicate a new best-in-class technology based on some standardized performance comparison.

HuggingGPT: one chatbot to rule them all 💍

HuggingGPT is a new system that uses big language models, like ChatGPT, to control other AI models and solve complicated tasks.

It connects with a lot of AI models from Hugging Face (an online community for researchers to build and share AI models) and uses language as a way to work with them.

Language models can connect other AI models together to solve complicated tasks.

By doing this, HuggingGPT can help with many different tasks and do well in areas like language, seeing, and talking. Basically, it wants to be JARVIS from Iron Man (and that’s what they’ve named their GitHub repo too).

In this concept, an LLM (Large Language Model) acts as a controller, managing and organizing the cooperation of expert models. The LLM first plans a list of tasks based on the user request and then assigns expert models to each task. After the experts execute the tasks, the LLM collects the results and responds to the user.

From the HuggingGPT paper.

Don’t confuse this JARVIS with the Jarvis from Iron Man, or with this separate (also very cool) project released yesterday with the same name:

Mckay Wrigley uses his voice to direct an AI programmer.

LLMs like ChatGPT, LLaMA, and yes, even Google Bard, are quickly turning into the “glue” that connects all AI models together.


1/ We will soon see fully autonomous AI agents operating on the Internet, running businesses, and pursuing goals set by their human masters with little-to-no oversight.

2/ An AI will commit fraud or a financial crime within the next 6 months and its human creator will be liable (if they can be found).

3/ A platform will be launched within the next 3 months for managing autonomous AI assistants that can handle tasks like coordinating appointments or planning a trip.

“The kid stood frozen in the middle of the street, his heart racing as he gazed in wonder at the distant flashes of lightning and intense bursts of light, wondering what incredible events were unfolding just beyond his view.” - @Paperwrks3d
