Rethink Productivity With MultiOn - A New AI Agent
The most shocking AI demo yet?
With MultiOn, you can truly let AI do the way.
MultiOn is a Chrome plugin that can navigate websites and perform tasks for you, like booking a flight.
If you ask MultiOn to book a meeting, the tool will go to Gmail, open the calendar, fill in the attendees, date and time, and send out the invitation.
You may not want to trust MultiOn with your data and logins, but once this hits ChatGPT 5, we’ll think about productivity very differently.
Price: Sign up to access API and join their Discord group.

In the News
Every week, we pick must-read articles about the future of work so you can stay ahead.
This week, Taylor’s deepfake image urges AI legislation, and Apple hints at a “groundbreaking innovation” in AI:
Last week, explicit deepfake images of Taylor Swift got 47 million views before being taken down. This scandal has urged big media companies such as X, Meta, OpenAI, and Microsoft to investigate and for the government to work on new legislation to protect users from the threat of AI.
On an investor call, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared that a lot of work and effort has been spent internally on Generative AI and that we should see something this year. He did not want to speculate on exactly what that would be.
A study shows that people prefer AI-generated copy. In a blind test, they picked AI-written text over that by fellow humans. This writer is starting to get anxious!
In a new update, Google Maps employs Large Language Models to answer “Where else to go?” and suggest cool places to explore.
I was astounded by the popularity of AI for education and chat in the “Generative AI Top 150: The World's Most Used AI Tools” reports. This article gives insight into the emergence of the AI-native generation and what it means for our future.
