1/7 We built a new model! It’s called Action Transformer (ACT-1) and we taught it to use a bunch of software tools. In this first video, the user simply types a high-level request and ACT-1 does the rest. Read on to see more examples ⬇️
2/7 This can be especially powerful for manual tasks and complex tools — in this example, what might ordinarily take 10+ clicks in Salesforce can be now done with just a sentence.
3/7 Working in-depth in tools like spreadsheets, ACT-1 demonstrates real-world knowledge, infers what we mean from context, and can help us do things we may not even know how to do.
4/7 The model can also complete tasks that require composing multiple tools together; most things we do on a computer span multiple programs. In the future, we expect ACT-1 to be even more helpful by asking for clarifications about what we want.
5/7 The internet contains a lot of knowledge about the world! When the model doesn’t know something, it knows how to just look up the information online (seen here in voice input mode).
6/7 ACT-1 doesn’t know how to do everything, but it’s highly coachable. With 1 piece of human feedback, it can correct mistakes, becoming more useful with each interaction.
