Anyone can turn ideas into complete and visually compelling narratives with a single prompt
Tome introduces generative storytelling
SAN FRANCISCO, December 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — To me, the AI-powered storytelling format for work and important ideas, today launched generative storytelling. Launching in beta, Tome’s AI enables creators to generate entire narratives from scratch, complete with intelligent titles, outlines, pagination, page layouts and page content supported by GPT-3 and AI-generated images.
“Generative text and image technology has captivated the world, but we have yet to see an application that can power a compelling, visually engaging story. We’re putting this technology to work in a truly tangible way that helps anyone express themselves or share important ideas. Now creators can generate complete, visual narratives with a single scripted command,” said Keith Peiris, Tome co-founder and CEO. “The days of writer’s block or staring at a blank page are over. Unlocking your best work and ideas in Tome is now as simple as typing a message and hitting enter.
“We think of AI as a collaborative partner with whom you can iterate and co-create,” says Henri Liriani, Tome co-founder and CPO. “Our vision is that AI is available when you want it, at any stage of the creation process. Now, for example, you can use AI in Tome to talk about an idea, create a starting point with visuals, or add a single page of content on a specific topic. Over time, we see Tome’s AI becoming more and more nuanced – refining tone, honing the perfect visual to make a point, or creating alternative layouts and maps.”
Tome’s AI works iteratively with creators to create engaging presentations and stories. Creators can enter a simple written request and instantly generate a complete narrative structure. Additional iterations and new AI functionality, including text and tone editing, inline image adjustments, and alternative layouts, are expected in early 2023. Creators can use Tome’s AI for endless work applications, including building presentations, product roadmaps, fundraising decks, sales pitches, thought leadership pieces and more. Creators can also use Tome’s AI for creative applications in their personal lives, from creating an itinerary for their next trip to making a visual how-to fitness guide to creating a new bedtime story for their child every evening.
“We are entering an era of human augmentation where we will see a historic acceleration in the coupling of human intelligence and technology,” said Reid Hoffman, board member at Tome and OpenAI, and partner at Greylock. “Tome is a compelling proof point and window into a future where AI-powered tools enhance human creativity, as well as everyday tasks and critical problem solving. This shift will make professionals and companies more productive and resourceful in every industry.”
“As AI moves from the research lab to everyday life applications, a new wave of innovators will reshape every part of our world,” said Dan Rose, board member at Tome and chairman, Coatue Ventures. “It’s especially exciting to support teams like Tome that are building AI-enabled storytelling tools that have the potential to transform how we communicate ideas. We believe these are the types of tools that will define the next decade of innovation in technology.”
Generative Storytelling builds on Tome’s existing AI functionality, which includes its DALL·E 2 image generation tile, automatic color picker, and responsive design system. Tome is also equipped with numerous integrations that allow creators to tell stories with any type of content, from interactive prototypes and 3D renderings to live integrations with popular tools, such as Figma, Airtable, Framer, Looker and Giphy.
