Open AI is building two type of AI agents.

OpenAI's new project after ChatGPT is crafting AI agents that can literally take the wheel of your digital tasks. Think virtual buddies who are ace at handling your digital errands.

What’s going on here?

OpenAI is working on AI agents that not just chat but actually get stuff done on your computer and online.

What does this mean?

OpenAI is working on two types of agents for now. One type of agent is like a digital puppeteer for your computer, doing all the clicky-typey stuff you'd rather not. Need to shuffle data from a doc to a spreadsheet or sort out pesky expense reports? This agent's got you.

The other type is your go-to web ninja, scouting data, planning trips, or snagging flight deals without you breaking a sweat. But, and it's a big but, these agents need to learn about you to be truly helpful - which means letting them in on your digital secrets, with your say-so, of course.

Why should I care?

Because who doesn't want a personal digital whiz? Beyond just cutting down your task list, agents could seriously change most professional work that happens on a screen. And as these agents evolve, they'll get smarter at understanding our needs, making instances like this more common.
