According to Ahrefs, ChatGPT was searched 18 million times in March 2023 alone. Since OpenAI’s viral product took off in late 2022, terms like ChatGPT, generative AI, and LLMs have become a part of the cultural lexicon, and companies across industries have been joining in to develop the latest and greatest new technology for their users.
What is generative AI?
In brief, generative AI is a category of artificial intelligence that generates new data, based on existing human-created data. The topic became popularized in late 2022 by OpenAI’s viral product, ChatGPT. Since then, companies have been coming up with exciting new ways to apply these technological advances to different fields and industries, including marketing, sales, administration, and programming. Different models can generative different kinds of data, from text to audio files to image files and even videos.
We’ve compiled a list of companies and startups that are speeding up tedious tasks for users, and creating time-saving opportunities. Check out the companies below to save you and your team time.
Generative AI Companies: Data Analytics, ML, & App Dev
Einblick is an AI-native data notebook built for data teams. Einblick’s data notebook writes and fixes code, creates beautiful complex charts, builds machine learning models, and much more.
Combining the power of a Jupyter Notebook with the simplicity of ChatGPT, Einblick brings generative AI to the data domain. In as little as one sentence, users can create entire data workflows using Python, SQL, and interactive components, like Filters, Charts, and Tables. Unlike simple code generation tools, the code is generated directly in a coding environment, and can be run and tested immediately. Once in Einblick, users benefit from the canvas layout, which offers more freedom and flexibility for users to create comprehensive workflows and collaborate with coworkers and teammates.
Einblick is free to start, and offers the cutting-edge of generative AI to all data teams. Their tech stack includes LangChain and OpenAI. Check out www.einblick.ai for more information.
A platform for data scientists and machine learning enthusiasts and researchers, Hugging Face provides a collaborative space with easy access to the latest models, datasets, and open-source tools. One of their most popular libraries is “Transformers,” which lets users use and fine-tune pre-trained models for NLP tasks. Widely used and loved, Hugging Face allows users to connect and build community to further advance NLP initiatives.
LangChain is an open-source library and framework that empowers developers to create applications powered by large language models (LLMs). In particular, LangChain adds value by making it easier for developers to chain different prompts interactively. This solves the problem that many users have with LLMs, which is that LLMs can have trouble with more complex or multi-step requests. LangChain helps developers build AI agents that can reason about the problems, and break them into smaller tasks, that are then each solved.
Built by software developers for software developers, Warp is a Rust-based terminal targeted towards software teams. Recently, Warp launched Warp AI, an AI assistant integrated directly with their terminal. The AI can explain and debug errors, and even run commands from the chat interface–say goodbye to copy-pasting code.
If you want a terminal built for the 21st century, check out Warp. It’s free to start.

Midjourney is a research lab focused on design and AI. Their current flagship product produces imaginative images from just short phrases. Based on your prompt, Midjourney will generate four options, and after that you can generate larger versions or variations of the images initially created. Download your favorites. You can access Midjourney directly from your favorite Discord server. Midjourney plans start at $8/month.
Known for Stable Diffusion, a text-to-image model, Stability AI is an AI startup building and refining generative AI models. Stable Diffusion is able to create photorealistic images, legible text, and highly detailed images. With their most recent release of Stable Diffusion XL, users can modify images by going from image to image, editing within an image, and even extending a generated image.
Tome is an AI-powered presentation platform, self-described as a new medium–a canvas. From one-pagers to presentations and mood boards, Tome allows users to create visually stunning media with text prompts and offers templates so users can kickstart their creative process.
