Hackathon Technology (AI Tools To Use)



GPT-3 is OpenAI's third-generation language model with 175 billion parameters, enabling human-like text generation. It's in open beta.


OpenAI Codex is an AI model that parses natural language and generates code. It powers GitHub Copilot, an auto completion tool, and is based on GPT-3. It has been trained on 159 GB of Python code from 54M GitHub repos.


DALL-E 2 is a 3.5B parameter generative language model that creates images from sentences. Its images are 4x better in resolution than its predecessor, with human judges preferring it to DALL-E 70% of the time.


Whisper is a powerful speech recognition and translation model trained on 680,000 hours of multilingual data. It uses an encoder-decoder architecture to convert audio into text and it also supports language identification, phrase-level timestamps, and multilingual transcription.


ChatGPT is a text-generating AI model trained on conversations and other human-generated text. It can generate responses, code, make suggestions and provide information in a natural conversational style. It was trained using RLHF and supervised fine-tuning with human AI trainers.



Generate is a language model for writing and summarizing text, correcting spelling/grammar, and extracting entities.


Use Classify to quickly organize data by labeling text, performing content moderation, detecting user intent, classifying topics and analyzing sentiment.


Embed lets AI read Reddit posts about your company and show results in a graph. It also offers semantic search, topic modeling, and recommendations.

Multilingual Semantic Search

Text embeddings are key to machine language understanding, representing text meaning as numbers through an embedding model. Multilingual models can handle multiple languages effectively.


Sandbox provides open-source GitHub repos to quickly build ML apps with Cohere. It's easy for any developer, no ML experience required.
