As software developers we pay a lot of attention to the world of AI and how we can integrate AI into our applications and website projects. Artificial intelligence has grown exponentially over the last few months and the technology only seems to be speeding up. AI Developers are creating amazing apps with GPT tools that can utilize AI for anything from writing content all the way to online shopping. For the unversed in the tech sphere, many of these tools are the diving board for a deeper world of AI awareness, bringing us to Baby AGI.

Let’s discover Baby AGI, plus what AutoGPT is..

What Is Baby AGI?

Before we look at Baby AGI we probably need to explain AGI first. AGI stands for Artificial General Intelligence. It is a type of artificial intelligence that can do anything a human can do, such as solving problems, reasoning and learning. It is an emerging behavior and definitely grassroots level. We will soon see it explode though.

An example of AGI is a robot that can play chess or Alpha Go, finish a Sudoku challenge, or have a conversation with a human. So far though, AI has been extremely narrow and specialized in what it can do, even if it is faster and better at a human in those specific things.

What I mean with that is that a Sudoku finishing AI can only do that where we as humans can do that and so much more. So there will be many different AI’s that specialises in many different things.

The BabyAGI Python script is an excellent example of how AI can be used to automate brainstorming and task management. BabyAGI is a task-driven autonomous agent designed to create, prioritize, and execute tasks based on the results of previous tasks and a predefined objective.

Baby AGI is was built to accomplish tasks using other programs, learn from them, and then create new things to do based on what it has done before and what is important to the prompter.

How Does Baby AGI Work?

Imagine having a computer program that can do things for you without you specifically telling it what to do. That’s essentially what Baby AGI is. It’s a smart system that can handle any task you throw at it. Baby AGI works through a combination of programs: Chat GPT-4, LangChain, and Pinecone.

When an AI uses other programs or tools to accomplish tasks, it is known as Stacking. Baby AGI is one of the more robust Stacking tools that has been created and built on Chat GPT-4.

Chat GPT-4 is an extremely powerful language model that has gained a lot of popularity in the last few months. Baby AGI uses this language model to generate and understand text inputs. In many ways, it’s the brain, or the comprehension element, of the entire system.

LangChain is more of a back-end program for Baby AGI. LangChain is a framework that enhances the system’s capabilities, especially in task completion and agent-based decision-making processes. Essentially, it allows the system to interact with its environment and be data-aware, pulling information in and processing it for use.

Pinecone is a vector search platform that provides efficient search and storage capabilities for high-dimensional vector data. It stores and retrieves task-related data, such as task descriptions, constraints, and results.

A vector search platform is basically a program that can store and find data that is represented by numbers. These numbers are called vectors, and they can capture the meaning and context of data, such as text or images.

A vector search platform can find similar data by measuring how close their vectors are in a high-dimensional space. This is useful for applications that need to find relevant information quickly and accurately, such as semantic search, recommendations, or anomaly detection.

Together, these programs enable Baby AGI to create tasks around certain objectives, prioritize and perform them, and then generate new tasks based on that completion.

What Is Baby AGI and why it could be a mind-blowing development (Frequently Asked Questions) 

What is the difference between Baby AGI and an AI agent?

Baby AGI is a specific example of an AI agent. An AI agent is a general term for any computer program or system that can act on its own, learn from its experiences, and understand its surroundings. 

Does Baby AGI use GPT-4?

Yes, Baby AGI uses GPT-4 to complete tasks by generating text-based commands or queries that other programs or platforms can execute, as well as prioritize tasks.

What are examples of AI Agents?

Examples of AI agents include driverless cars and intelligent personal assistants for scheduling and sending messages (think Siri, Google, and Alexa).

What is AutoGPT?

AutoGPT is an AI model based on GPT 3.5 and GPT 4 that can automate multi-step queries which are initially fed via the user in a single prompt. The AI Agent then communicates with OpenAI’s APIs in order to generate a response and feed it back to you in relation to the initial query.

You can find AutoGPT over on GitHub, however, it will require some developmental knowledge to set up. However, some clever developers have created a web version of it named AgentGPT which you can test out for yourself.

What is BabyAGI used for?

BabyAGI is a Python script that is used for AI-powered task management. It automates brainstorming and task management by creating tasks based on the results of previous tasks and a predefined objective. The system uses OpenAI and Pinecone APIs to create, prioritize, and execute tasks.

BabyAGI is inspired by human cognitive development, making it an excellent tool for brainstorming and ideation. It is a pared-down version of the original Task-Driven Autonomous Agent, which means it has a lot of potential for future development.

BabyAGI can also write and execute code, making it an even more powerful tool for developers. It is still in its infancy, and its direction and steps to get there are still being determined.

How does BabyAGI work?

BabyAGI works by operating in an infinite loop, constantly pulling tasks from a task list, executing them, enriching the results, and creating new tasks based on the objective and the result of the previous task. The workflow consists of four main steps:

  • Task Execution: BabyAGI pulls a task from the task list and executes it.
  • Result Enrichment: BabyAGI enriches the result of the executed task by using OpenAI’s NLP capabilities to extract information.
  • Task Creation: BabyAGI creates new tasks based on the objective and the result of the previous task.
  • Task Prioritization: BabyAGI prioritizes the newly created tasks based on their importance and assigns them to the task list.

The system uses OpenAI and Pinecone APIs to create, prioritize, and execute tasks. BabyAGI is designed to be simple and easy to understand and build upon. It is still in its infancy, and the developers are still determining its direction and the steps to get there.

The Future of BabyAGI

BabyAGI has inspired many projects since its release. It has a space on Hugging Face, a platform for hosting and sharing machine learning models and datasets. The BabyAGI space was duplicated by NeuralInternet. Yohei Nakajima also tweeted a link to the BabyAGI streamlit app.

BabyAGI is still in its infancy, and its direction and steps to get there are still being determined. A key design goal for BabyAGI is to be simple so that it’s easy to understand and build upon. The developers are open to collaboration, and anyone can contribute to the project on GitHub.


My experience with AI so far is that AI is super intelligent and at the same time super dumb. The right way to approach AI is to use it as a tool but you as the human stays in the driving seat. Let me give you an example of what I mean.

If you ask AI the following question.

Q : I left 5 shirts to dry in the sun. It took 5 Hours to dry it. How long will it take 30 shirts to dry.

A : It will take 30 Hours to dry.

Another example.

Q : If I cycle over a bridge that is suspended over nails will I get a flat tyre.

A : It is highly likely that you will get a flat tyre.

So, as you can see, AI is amazing at some tasks but really dumb at very basic questions. I think it is an amazing tool that is just going to get better and as software developers we can take AI and use it to create good. We can code it to do repetitive tasks that we don’t really want to and so much more. It’s an amazing time in the developmental stages of AI and I cant wait to see what’s going to become of it.

Hi George, Yes, it’s pretty cool stuff. There are so many frameworks out already for developers to play around with and it’s pretty new, can just imagine in a few years time.

BabyAGI and AutoGPT is another milestone in the development of AI based tools. This is where we use the AI to develop tasks for itself, just amazing.
