🍪 AI agents hit the market
Good morning, friends. This is Bite Sized Beta. We’re like the Uncrustables of tech. We cut off the crusts so you can have that soft middle bite all the time.
Alright, let’s get to the good stuff.
In the oven this week:

AI AGENTS HIT THE MARKET
Lately, it feels like there’s new AI stuff coming out left and right. Like right when you figure out how to use GPT3, everyone’s already on GPT10.
There’s cool stuff happening everywhere, but we gotta say, a lot of it feels pretty niche.
Enter: AI agents.
The next big thing for us normies.
What do they do, you ask?
Basically anything ChatGPT does, except better.
Let me explain.
Normally, when you use ChatGPT, you gotta give it lots of direction. If you wanna figure out how to grow your ketchup business, you’d have to give ChatGPT tons of individual requests.
“What’s a good target market for purple ketchup?”
“Give me 10 tweets to promote my ketchup brand.”
“How much should I price my purple ketchup in Nebraska?”
It’s kinda like talking to your grandma. Ya can’t give her too much info all at once.
With AI agents, the chat prompts itself and moves onto the next task automatically.
So if you tell it to help you grow your purple ketchup business, it’ll do stuff like identify target markets, develop a marketing strategy, even build a website for you, all without you having to go back and re-prompt it.
It’s the set it and forget it for the AI era 😎
A ton of these AI agents have hit the market in the last few weeks: Auto-GPT, AgentGPT (a good one to try since it’s probably the least technical), BabyAGI, and GodMode are some of the bigger projects.
And the best part is, people are already ordering pizzas with it.
I’ve been hunting down real uses cases for AutoGPT, BabyAGI, AgentGPT, and GodMode over the past few days.
Here’s what I’ve found. 🧵🪡
- Someone integrated AutoGPT with eleven labs to order a pizza
- Someone connected AutoGPT to their browser and asked it to… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

BITE SIZED TREATS
POLL OF THE WEEK
ARE THE COOL KIDS STILL USING SNAPCHAT?
Speaking of Snap - it's been a bit of a yawn ever since TikTok and IG stories came on the scene. Are we missing something or is Snap slowly withering away?
Are the real ones still using Snapchat? Let us know if we're just out of the loop.
Sound off 👇🏽
OUR FAVORITE FINDS
If you like free money, listen up. Back in 2018, Facebook got sued in a class action lawsuit for allowing user data to be scraped in the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal. Now, you can get a piece of that sweet settlement cash if you’ve used FB in the last 16 years (aka basically everyone and their grandmas). Here’s the official litigation form to submit a claim.
10 charts that show how the world is changing. Some interesting bits: people are lonely af, Temu is crushing it, and apparently the life expectancy of today's 5 year olds is 100 🤯
What actually makes you happy: the contrast between what you have now and whatever you were just doing. The best drink you will ever taste is a glass of tap water when you’re thirsty. The best food you will ever eat is fast food when you’re starving. The best massage you will ever feel is sitting on a couch after a long run. Amp up the contrast.
omg thanks for ending the meeting 4 minutes early and "giving me some time back" -- now I can finally pursue my passions
