🤖 AI in Terminal
Ever since ChatGPT was released to public, people just cannot get enough of AI.
While you can use ChatGPT to generate Linux commands, doing so from the terminal is even more convenient.
Here, I list a few such tools that let you use ChatGPT like AI system directly in the Linux terminal.
By the way, the first AI-based chatbot in the computer terminal was ELIZA. It was created in 1964.
