29+ AI projects you can build today

Today, we're covering 30 or more projects that you can build with AI.

All the projects are open source so you can contribute to make it better.

Some of the projects may have a large codebase but you can get inspiration from it and build a cool side project.

Trust me, if this list doesn't surprise you, nothing will :)

Let's jump in!

1. CopilotKit - AI Copilots for your product in hours.



Integrating AI features in React is tough, that's where Copilot comes into the picture. A simple and fast solution to integrate production-ready Copilots into any product!

You can integrate key AI features into React apps using two React components. They also provide built-in (fully-customizable) Copilot-native UX components like <CopilotKit />, <CopilotPopup />, <CopilotSidebar />, <CopilotTextarea />.

Get started with the following npm command.

npm i @copilotkit/react-core @copilotkit/react-ui
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Copilot Portal is one of the components provided with CopilotKit which is an in-app AI chatbot that can see the current app state and take action inside your app. It communicates with the app frontend and backend, as well as 3rd party services via plugins.

This is how you can integrate a Chatbot.

A CopilotKit must wrap all components which interact with CopilotKit. It’s recommended you also get started with CopilotSidebar (you can swap to a different UI provider later).

"use client";
import { CopilotKit } from "@copilotkit/react-core";
import { CopilotSidebar } from "@copilotkit/react-ui";
import "@copilotkit/react-ui/styles.css"; 

export default function RootLayout({children}) {
  return (
    <CopilotKit url="/path_to_copilotkit_endpoint/see_below">
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can set up Copilot Backend endpoints using this quickstart quide.

After this, you can let Copilot take action. You can read on how to provide external context. You can do so using useMakeCopilotReadable and useMakeCopilotDocumentReadable react hooks.

"use client";

import { useMakeCopilotActionable } from '@copilotkit/react-core';

// Let the copilot take action on behalf of the user.
    name: "setEmployeesAsSelected", // no spaces allowed in the function name
    description: "\"Set the given employees as 'selected'\","
    argumentAnnotations: [
        name: "employeeIds",
        type: "array", items: { type: "string" }
        description: "\"The IDs of employees to set as selected\","
        required: true
    implementation: async (employeeIds) => setEmployeesAsSelected(employeeIds),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can read the docs and check the demo video.

You can integrate Vercel AI SDK, OpenAI APIs, Langchain, and other LLM providers with ease. You can follow this guide to integrate a chatbot into your application.

The basic idea is to build AI Chatbots in minutes that can be useful for LLM-based applications.

The use cases are huge, and as developers, we should definitely try to use CopilotKit in our next project.

CopilotKit has 5.7k+ Stars on GitHub with 200+ releases meaning they're constantly improving.

3. Private GPT - ask questions about your documents without the internet.

private GPT


PrivateGPT is a production-ready AI project that allows you to ask questions about your documents using the power of Large Language Models (LLMs), even in scenarios without an internet connection.

100% private meaning no data leaves your execution environment at any point.

The API is divided into two logical blocks:

a. High-level API, which abstracts all the complexity of a RAG (Retrieval Augmented Generation) pipeline implementation:

  • Ingestion of documents: internally managing document parsing, splitting, metadata extraction, embedding generation, and storage.
  • Chat & Completions using context from ingested documents: abstracting the retrieval of context, the prompt engineering, and the response generation.

b. Low-level API, which allows advanced users to implement their complex pipelines:

  • Embeddings generation: based on a piece of text.
  • Contextual chunks retrieval: given a query, returns the most relevant chunks of text from the ingested documents.

You can read the installation guide to get started.

You can read the docs and the detailed architecture that is involved.

PrivateGPT is now evolving towards becoming a gateway to generative AI models and primitives, including completions, document ingestion, RAG pipelines, and other low-level building blocks.

They have 51k+ Stars on GitHub and evolving at a rapid pace.

4. Instrukt - Integrated AI in the terminal.



Instrukt is a terminal-based AI-integrated environment. It offers a platform where users can:

  • Create and instruct modular AI agents.
  • Generate document indexes for question-answering.
  • Create and attach tools to any agent.

Instruct them in natural language and, for safety, run them inside secure containers (currently implemented with Docker) to perform tasks in their dedicated, sandboxed space.

Built using Langchain, Textual, and Chroma.

Get started with the following command.

pip install instrukt[all]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


There are a lot of exciting features such as:

  • A terminal-based interface for power keyboard users to instruct AI agents without ever leaving the keyboard.
  • Index your data and let agents retrieve it for question-answering. You can create and organize your indexes with an easy UI.
  • Index creation will auto-detect programming languages and optimize the splitting/chunking strategy accordingly.
  • Run agents inside secure docker containers for safety and privacy.
  • Integrated REPL-Prompt for quick interaction with agents, and a fast feedback loop for development and testing.
  • You can automate repetitive tasks with custom commands. It also has a built-in prompt/chat history.

You can read about all the features.

You can read the installation guide.

You can also debug and introspect agents using an in-built IPython console which is a neat little feature.

console debugging

Instrukt is licensed with an AGPL license meaning that it can be used by anyone for whatever purpose.

It is safe to say that Instrukt is a Terminal AI Commander at your fingertips.

It is a new project so they have around 200+ stars on GitHub but the use case is very good.

5. Voice Assistant on Mac - Your voice-controlled Mac assistant.

gpt automator


Your voice-controlled Mac assistant. GPT Automator lets you perform tasks on your Mac using your voice. For example, opening applications, looking up restaurants, and synthesizing information. Awesome :D

It was built during the London Hackathon.

It has two main parts:

a. Voice to command: It generates the command using Whisper running locally (a fork of Buzz).

b. Command to Action: You give the command to a LangChain agent equipped with custom tools we wrote. These tools include controlling the operating system of the computer using AppleScript and controlling the active browser using JavaScript. Finally, like any good AI, we have the agent speak out the final result using AppleScript saying "{Result}" (try typing "Hello World!" into your Mac terminal if you haven’t used it before”).

A custom tool we made to have the LLM control the computer using AppleScript. The prompt is the docstring:

def computer_applescript_action(apple_script):
    Use this when you want to execute a command on the computer. The command should be in AppleScript.

    Here are some examples of good AppleScript commands:

    Command: Create a new page in Notion
    AppleScript: tell application "Notion"
        delay 0.5
        tell application "System Events" to keystroke "n" using {{command down}}
    end tell


    Write the AppleScript for the Command:
    p = subprocess.Popen(['osascript', '-'], stdin=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE)

    stdout, stderr = p.communicate(applescript.encode('utf-8'))

    if p.returncode != 0:
        raise Exception(stderr)

    decoded_text = stdout.decode("utf-8")

    return decoded_text
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you are wondering how it works, GPT Automator converts your audio input to text using OpenAI's Whisper. Then, it uses a LangChain Agent to choose a set of actions, including generating AppleScript (for desktop automation) and JavaScript (for browser automation) commands from your prompt using OpenAI's GPT-3 ("text-davinci-003") and then executing the resulting script.

Just remember, this is not for production use. This project executes code generated from natural language and may be susceptible to prompt injection and similar attacks. This work was made as a proof-of-concept.

You can read the installation guide.

Let's look at some of the prompts and what it will do:

✅ Find the result of a calculation.

Prompt: "What is 2 + 2?"

It will write AppleScript to open up a calculator and type in 5 * 5.

✅ Find restaurants nearby.

Prompt: "Find restaurants near me"

It will open up Chrome, google search for a restaurant nearby, parse the page and then return the top results. Sometimes it’s cheeky, and instead will open up the Google Maps result and say “The best restaurants are the ones at the top of the page on Google Maps”. Other times it opens the top link on Google - and gets stuck on the Google accessibility page…

Here’s what’s printed to the terminal as it runs:

Command: Find a great restaurant near Manchester.

> Entering new AgentExecutor chain...
 I need to search for a restaurant near Manchester.
Action: chrome_open_url
Action Input:

Thought: I need to read the page
Action: chrome_read_the_page

I cannot guarantee that those restaurants are worth it, visit at your own risk. haha!

✅ If you ask GPT Automator to wipe your computer it will.

Yes, it will wipe your computer if you ask!
My inner self screaming to do it :)

8. GPT Migrate - Easily migrate your codebase from one framework or language to another.

GPT Migrate


If you've ever faced the pain of migrating a codebase to a new framework or language, this project is for you.

I think we can all agree that we need this at some point. You can do it using a workflow as well which Stripe did as far as I remember to convert their entire JS codebase to TS.

Migration is a costly, tedious, and non-trivial problem.
Do not trust the current version blindly and please use it responsibly. Please also be aware that costs can add up quickly as GPT-Migrate is designed to write (and potentially re-write) the entirety of a codebase.

You can install it using Poetry and read on how it works.

Please note.

GPT-Migrate is currently in development alpha and is not yet ready for production use. For instance, on the relatively simple benchmarks, it gets through "easy" languages like Python or JavaScript without a hitch ~50% of the time, and cannot get through more complex languages like C++ or Rust without some human assistance.

You can watch the demo here!

9. Plandex - AI coding engine for building complex, real-world software with LLMs.



Plandex uses long-running agents to complete tasks that span multiple files and require many steps. It breaks up large tasks into smaller subtasks, then implements each one, continuing until it finishes the job.

It helps you churn through your backlog, work with unfamiliar technologies, get unstuck, and spend less time on the boring stuff.

You can see the demo here!

The changes are accumulated in a protected sandbox so that you can review them before automatically applying them to your project files. Built-in version control allows you to easily go backward and try a different approach. Branches allow you to try multiple approaches and compare the results.

You can manage context efficiently in the terminal. Easily add files or entire directories to context, and keep them updated automatically as you work so that models always have the latest state of your project.

Plandex relies on the OpenAI API and requires an OPENAI_API_KEY env variable.

Plandex supports Mac, Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows. It runs from a single binary with no dependencies.

You can even try different models and model settings, and then compare the results.

You can read the installation instructions.

Plandex Cloud is the easiest and most reliable way to use Plandex. You'll be prompted to start an anonymous trial (no email required) when you create your first plan with plandex new. Trial accounts are limited to 10 plans and 10 AI model replies per plan. Plandex Cloud accounts are free for now so that's a good thing.

Plandex has 8k+ stars on GitHub and is built using Go.

10. SQL Translator - a tool for converting natural language queries into SQL code using AI.

sql translator


I was trying to build a similar project and found that it already exists.

This tool is designed to make it easy for anyone to translate SQL (Structured Query Language) commands into natural language and vice versa.

SQL is a programming language used to manage and manipulate data in relational databases, and while it's a powerful tool, it can also be quite complex and difficult to understand.

On the other hand, natural language is the language that we speak and write in everyday life, and it's often the preferred way to communicate for people who are not familiar with technical jargon.

With the SQL and Natural Language Translator, you don't need to be an SQL expert to understand what's going on in your database or to write SQL queries. You can simply type in your query in natural language and get the corresponding SQL code, or vice versa.

Some of the features are:

  • Dark mode.
  • Lowercase/uppercase toggle.
  • Copy to clipboard.
  • SQL syntax highlighting.
  • Schema awareness (beta).
  • Query history.

You can read the installation structions and it's very simple since it uses Nextjs.

This query is for YOU. haha!

cool query

SQL Translator has 4k stars on GitHub and is built using TypeScript.

11. WingmanAI - Real-time transcription of audio, integrated with ChatGPT.



WingmanAI is a powerful tool for interacting with real-time transcription of both system and microphone audio. Powered by ChatGPT, this tool lets you interact in real time with the transcripts as an extensive memory base for the bot, providing a unique communication platform.

The bot can answer questions about past conversations when you load the transcripts for a designated person.

You can read the installation instructions.

You can watch the demo here!


Some of the neat features are:

  • WingmanAI can transcribe both system output and microphone input audio, allowing you to view the live transcription in an easy-to-read format.

  • You can chat with a ChatGPT-powered bot that reads your transcripts in real time.

  • The bot maintains a record of the conversation but in a token-efficient manner, as only the current chunk of the transcript is passed to the bot.

  • WingmanAI allows you to save transcripts for future use. You can load them up anytime later, and any query made to the bot will be cross-referenced with a vector database of the saved transcript, providing the bot with a richer context.

  • You can keep appending to the saved transcripts, building a vast database over time for the bot to pull from.

It has 420 stars on GitHub and isn't maintained anymore.

12. Lively - allows users to set animated desktop wallpapers and screensavers.



This is just for fun and we can learn a lot using the code on how it's done.

You can see this video on how insane it looks.


They provide three types of wallpapers including video/GIF, Webpage, and Application/Games.

It is built on C# and some of the cool features that lively supports:

  1. Lively can be controlled with command line arguments from the terminal. You can integrate this with other languages like Python or scripting software AutoHotKey.

  2. Powerful set of API for developers to create interactive wallpapers. Get hardware readings, audio graphs, music information, and more.

  3. Wallpaper playback pauses when fullscreen applications/games run on the machine (~0% CPU, GPU usage).

  4. You can also leverage Machine Learning inference to create dynamic wallpapers. You can predict the distance from the camera of any 2D image and generate a 3D-like parallax effect. Cool :D

I've seen a lot of people using it and many of them aren't even aware that it's open source.

You can download it using installer or through microsoft store.

It was the winner of 2023 on the Microsoft Store.
It has 13k+ Stars on GitHub with 60 releases.

13. RestGPT - LM-based autonomous agent controlling apps via RESTful APIs.



This work aims to construct a large language model-based autonomous agent, RestGPT, to control real-world applications, such as movie databases and music players. To achieve this, we connect LLMs with RESTful APIs and tackle the practical challenges of planning, API calls, and response parsing. To fully evaluate the performance of RestGPT, we propose RestBench, a high-quality benchmark that consists of two real-world scenarios and human-annotated instructions with gold solution paths.

RestGPT adopts an iterative coarse-to-fine online planning framework and uses an executor to call RESTful APIs. Here is an overview of RestGPT.


You can read the docs to evaluate the performance of RestGPT using RestBench.

20. Microagents - Agents Capable of Self-Editing Their Prompts.



It's an experimental framework for dynamically creating self-improving agents in response to tasks.

Microagents represent a new approach to creating self-improving agents. Small, microservice-sized (hence, microagents) agents are dynamically generated in response to tasks assigned by the user to the assistant, assessed for their functionality, and, upon successful validation, stored for future reuse.

This enables learning across chat sessions, enabling the system to independently deduce methods for task execution.

This is built using Python, OpenAI's GPT-4 Turbo and Text-Embedding-Ada-002.

You can read the installation instructions. They have mentioned that you should have an OpenAI account with access to gpt-4-turbo and text-embedding-ada-002.

Let's see an example of fetching a Weather Forecast Agent.

You are an adept weather informant. Fetch the weather forecast by accessing public API data using this Python code snippet:

import requests
import json

def fetch_weather_forecast(location, date):
    response = requests.get(f"{location[0]}&lon={location[1]}")
    weather_data = response.json()
    for day_data in weather_data['properties']['timeseries']:
        if date in day_data['time']:
# Example usage: fetch_weather_forecast((47.3769, 8.5417), '2024-01-22T12:00:00Z')
Note: Replace the (47.3769, 8.5417) with the actual latitude and longitude of the location and the date string accordingly.

28. reor - Self-organizing AI note-taking app.



One of the most exciting projects that I've seen so far, especially because it runs models locally.

Reor is an AI-powered desktop note-taking app: it automatically links related notes, answers questions on your notes, and provides semantic search.

Everything is stored locally and you can edit your notes with an Obsidian-like markdown editor. The project hypothesizes that AI tools for thought should run models locally by default.

Reor stands on the shoulders of the giants Ollama, Transformers.js & LanceDB to enable both LLMs and embedding models to run locally. Connecting to OpenAI or OpenAI-compatible APIs like Oobabooga is also supported.

I know you're wondering How can it possibly be self-organizing?

a. Every note you write is chunked and embedded into an internal vector database.
b. Related notes are connected automatically via vector similarity.
c. LLM-powered Q&A does RAG on the corpus of notes.
d. Everything can be searched semantically.

You can watch the demo here!


One way to think about Reor is as a RAG app with two generators: the LLM and the human. In Q&A mode, the LLM is fed retrieved-context from the corpus to help answer a query.

Similarly, in editor mode, the human can toggle the sidebar to reveal related notes "retrieved" from the corpus. This is quite a powerful way of "augmenting" your thoughts by cross-referencing ideas in a current note against related ideas from your corpus.

You can read the docs and download from the website. Mac, Linux & Windows are all supported.

They have also provided starter guides so they can help you get started.

I tried to cover these so that developers can find a lot of useful ones at one place.
Most of these are very new, like Instrukt. It took me a lot of time to find good projects.
I realize now that this is very long, haha!

justinwells21 profile image

This is pretty awesome. But it's mostly libraries.

anmolbaranwal profile image
Anmol Baranwal

Yeah, maybe a mixture of libraries and projects (the majority). But the libraries are very centric to creating projects using langchain so everything is related to the concept.

I will make sure to cover only projects from next time 😄
