Language agents

Posted Thursday February 1 2024.

Some people are working on “language agents” which try to turn GPT into an agent by giving it the ability to take “actions” in some way, and rolling this into an action-perception loop.

I think this is mostly bullshit but it does seem to have the ability to take a very short text prompt, and turn that into working software with high probability…

Some interesting projects include: - Generative agents: interactive simulacra of human behavior - Microsoft’s Autogen - ChatDev: communicative agents for software development
