Community Challenge: AI in your apps [Winners Announced!] 🤖🧠

Hello Gliders,

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Glide + AI challenge over the last couple weeks.

I’m glad that we’re running with four winners this time…!

We received a bunch of great app entries, ranging from very practical to very creative :sweat_smile:

Our winners are… :drum:

Reecord.ai

An audio transcription app with additional AI-enhanced functionality. This app offers practical utility, the entry was clear and well presented, and the branding was a nice touch. :wink: It’s a good example of simple functionality executed well. Great job @Emmett_M!

My Music Dream Team

Eight AI assistants offering guidance on demand catering to the music industry. This entry was compelling as a business app, but the use of Midjourney to generate illustrations for each of the assistants pushed it to the next level. Lots of character (literally) helped this stand out. Awesome stuff @erwblo!

TravelGenius.ai

Answer some questions about an upcoming trip and this app will prepare the perfect itinerary. @tj_talusan knocked it out of the park in this challenge with both of their entries, which cater to personal and professional use. What we liked about TravelGenius in particular were the small, helpful touches: the “create itinerary” form telling you how many credits would be used; the budget breakdown, supporting links, and emergency contact info; and the action buttons letting users share the itinerary.

Prompt builder

@Krivo took inspiration from a LinkedIn post and ran with it, building a Glide app that lets you create new prompts based on powerful prompt templates. There are tons of prompt collections floating around on the web. This app makes them actionable.

Congratulations to all our challenge winners for the stellar entries!

I’ll be in touch about your prizes. :pray:

One really interesting AI program that I have started using on the web is called HeyPi.com; I find their chatbot is a lot more conversational than ChatGPT and it produces some incredible results. They do have an API that might be able to be used through Make. Maybe Glide can connect with it eventually!

Done! Posting to Twitter in just a few moments, but until I do, here’s what I came up with!

:robot: AI Term Paper Grader based on a User-Generated Rubric

  • Google Cloud vision to extract text
  • Make JSON columns to “rollup” a multiple relation into a tidy JSON structure
  • OpenAI → Send to ChatGPT to analyze the paper according to the rubric JSON and output scores for each criterion and a rationale

Are glide experts included in this competition? If yes then i guess we normal level glide users stand no chance no matter what we’ll create cause these people have like a lot of experience than us, so i hoping you can take a look at this issue.

Expert is just a title and nothing more. We’ve all had to start somewhere. We learn from each other, whether you are called an “expert” or not. Competitions like this are a great way to learn new things and improve your skills. Everything I learned was from experimenting, asking questions, and helping others in the forum. You may surprise yourself with what you can do.

Thanks for the question, @Rodgers :+1:

Adding to what @Jeff_Hager said:

Experts are always included in these challenges, but that doesn’t mean they have an upper hand.

A great submission, in my opinion, covers three things:

  • Why it was built: What problem does the app/feature solve?
  • What was built: What does it do?
  • How it was built: What was the approach in creating it?

When selecting winners for challenges like this one, we’re weighing multiple factors. Sure, Experts may be able to build more complex apps, but that’s not necessarily what we’re looking for.

We ask things like:

  • Does it solve a practical or interesting real-world problem?
  • Is it creative? Is it a unique approach?
  • Is it elegant? Is it a surprisingly simple solution?
  • Is it inspirational? Does it show others what’s possible with Glide?
  • Did the creator expand their skills with Glide with this submission?
  • How well does it fit the criteria and spirit of the challenge?

E.g. We had some great entries from non-Experts in our first build challenge for Glide Actions.

Hope that helps. :slight_smile:

Agreed. I love these challenges because “experts” and “non-experts” alike submit novel and astounding entries. The “Winter Holiday” app challenge from a few years ago was won by a non-expert (@Mauricio_Paz) and he had an AMAZING entry:

In fact, he could probably revamp and resubmit this app using AI and clean up!

I understand now. And thanks for the add up @Robert_Petitto and @Jeff_Hager. Let me get my self to work now. I have hope now thanks to what @Robert_Petitto shared on the previous winner of the actions and integration challenge😊.

Reccord.ai | Record.Review.Chat

Audio transcription app with additional chat with your data functionality.

OpenAI integrations include :

  • Speech to text
  • Summarise text
  • Chat with a table

Profiles :
Teacher profile allows a teacher to record/upload an audio file of a class or lecture and the app will transcribe, summarise , create a formatted lesson overview & lesson plan for students.

Video upload seems to be not allowed in the post here but can be viewed on reecord.ai

Shoutout to @Darren_Murphy who helped me out on the profile feature also

Any q’s just drop me a message. :v:

@Emmett_M Amazing job! I recorded a brief description and it created a summary, a lesson plan, and example questions for each of the vocab words I mentioned. The vocab words were in spanish, but it translated them to English correctly and created appropriate quiz questions for those words in the target language. Hats off!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks so much @Robert_Petitto

I learned a lot from your videos so to hear that is such a great compliment and the best validation of the use case so far!

Would love to chat on any feedback or suggestions you might have as well :+1:

I have been testing an AI feature in Glide but unfortunately at this stage I can’t share the details as I’m under NDA but I look forward to sharing soon!

I like it because it gives me a reason to finish one of the unfinished projects I have lying around. And I can only make simple things, because of my limited skills and because I think a good idea doesn’t have to be complex. As will I show with my entry :slight_smile:

I built My Music Dream Team: 8 AI assistants for musicians, 24 / 7 available!
So I made a specific prompt for a manager, booker, publisher, accountant, lawyer, press officer, label manager, and journalist. The user asks a question and gets a good answer that he or she can save to his or her favorites. A really good knowledge base for artists without a professional team.
Since this little movie I added a FAQ page where I asked Open AI to come up with 100 questions and answers that I put in a sheet. Then I asked ChatGPT: give me 10 tags for this list. Within Glide I asked Open AI to come up with 3 actionable steps and to choose one of the tags for filter purposes.
Such an impressive combination: Glide + OpenAI
