Building with GPT-4 Vision, GPT-4 Turbo, DALL.E 3 and other models from Clarifai Community

The challenge required participants to create a Generative AI project and showcase an innovative application using the GPT-4 Vision, GPT-4 Turbo, DALL.E 3, Text-to-Speech, and other diverse ranges of text, audio, and vision models from the Clarifai community.

47 impressive projects were created and submitted for judging. Here are some of the standout projects.

1st Place 🥇: Story Prep

Story Prep won the top prize. It is an app that helps you learn a language by reading your favourite author. You don't need a dictionary at hand to read the entire story. All you need to do is upload your story, and the application will convert the story into lessons that teach just what is necessary for you to enjoy that particular story.

It also allows you to generate vocabulary sheets and downloadable listening exercises based on any work of fiction. This material will teach you all the necessary words and grammar to jump into an uninterrupted reading experience.

2nd Place 🥈: AI Project Manager Assistant

AI Project Manager Assistant won second place with its aim to save time by keeping track of meeting notes. The team created a Slack bot that automatically records meeting transcripts and sends the summary in a specified Slack channel. The assistant has a /dailysummary command to get the summaries of all meetings during the day. 

Here's how AI Project Manager Assistant works:

1. Record a Meeting: As a first step, the assistant uses Fathom to record a Zoom meeting and sends the transcript as JSON to Zapier.

2. Convert JSON to .txt: Zapier converts JSON to .txt and sends as POST request to the server.

3. Summarize the transcript: The server calls the GPT-4-turbo model from Clarifai to summarize the .txt file.

4. Store the summary: The summarized .txt file is stored in the database.

5. Slackbot returns the summary: Finally, Slackbot returns the summarized meeting transcript upon typing /dailysummary.
