Auto-GPT and BabyAGI: How ‘autonomous agents’ are bringing generative
AI to the masses
Autonomous agents may mark an important step toward a world where
AI-driven systems are smart enough to work on their own, without need
of human involvement.

Over the past week, developers around the world have begun building
“autonomous agents” that work with large language models (LLMs) such
as OpenAI’s GPT-4 to solve complex problems. While still very new,
such agents could represent a major milestone in the productive
application of LLMs.
In general terms, autonomous agents can generate a systematic sequence
of tasks that the LLM works on until it’s satisfied a preordained
“goal.” Autonomous agents can already perform tasks as varied as
conducting web research, writing code, and creating to-do lists.
And that’s a big part of the reason for all the current interest in
(and hype around) autonomous agents. They suggest an important step
toward artificial general intelligence (AGI), where AI-driven systems
are smart enough to work on their own, without need of human
