How to create AI-Driven Innovation
At Swiss Startup Days, we had the honor of presenting our session titled “AI Unboxed: Top Tips for Startups & Investors.” During this insightful event, we explored the limitless possibilities of AI tools and their potential to drive innovation. In just 45 minutes, we uncovered a wealth of knowledge that we’re excited to share with you. Join us as we unveil the transformative power of AI and its impact on shaping the future of business.
Engaging AI for Market Exploration
Our journey began with a simple idea: to create a food tech business. But how could we bring this idea to life? That’s where GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer) came in. We asked the AI to create a fictional handheld dessert from an imaginary country, and it helped us brainstorm ideas, refine our concept, and even come up with a catchy name of our product – the Fluffalicious. This dessert, a delightful blend of fluffy marshmallows and customizable toppings, was born out of a harmonious blend of human creativity and AI innovation.
But our work with GPT didn’t stop at brainstorming. We tasked GPT to switch its role to a food tech expert to help us construct a comprehensive business plan. With its help, we computed costs, devised personas, and drafted persuasive pitches to potential partners.
Bringing the Fluffalicious to Life
Next, we sought to give form to our Fluffalicious. Midjourney, our visual AI partner, designed a vibrant, captivating image that encapsulated the essence of our dessert.
To tell our story more vividly, Synthesia came on board to help us present our creation through a compelling video. This engaging visual narrative effectively captured the unique allure of the Fluffalicious.
Adding another layer to our venture, we leveraged GPT to create a critical nutritionist review of the Fluffalicious. In order to showcase different tools, we applied different text-to-voice technologies to vocalize this review. One version was created using 11Labs’ voice-cloning technology, producing the presenter’s voice. Another was generated using the GPT plugin Speechki.
