There are different categories for Agents, which are often either by the environment in which they act or by the manner in which they are used. Because of their variety, it has been found essential to enable their end-customization. This has been done with numerous commercial ventures, including OpenAI, POE,, etc. We discuss some basics below, but if you'd like to dig into to them, please check out the exmaples for multiple agent, and single agents to learn about them specifically.

Here are a few examples. Because agents are hard to disentangle from core components, we describe more throughout, especially in the section on cognitive architectures. We discuss single agents here, though there are a number of multi-agent system examples to consider as well.



Open GPTs Enables the creation of agents and assistants, using Langchain components

The Open Source AI Assistant Framework & API


Agenta-AI provides end-to-end LLM developer platform. It provides the tools for prompt engineering and management, ⚖️ evaluation, human annotation, and 🚀 deployment. All without imposing any restrictions on your choice of framework, library, or model.

Jarvis provides essential components to enable LLM-agents to have tools. They provide ToolBench, HuggingGPT, and EasyTool at present.

Easy Tool: Enhancing LLM-based Agents with Concise Tool Instruction provides a framework transforming diverse and lengthy tool documentation into a unified and concise tool instruction for easier tool usage

Development Easy Tool follows a simple pattern of: 1. Task Planning, 2. Tool Retrieval, 3. Tool Selection and 4. Tool Execution, coupled with thoughtful prompting to enable SOT tool usage over multiple models.

Problem Using new tools, software, especially can be challenging for LLMs (and people too!), especially with a poor or redundant documentation and a variety of usage manners. image

Solution Easy tool provides "a simple method to condense tool documentation into more concise and effective tool instructions."

     I: Tool Description Generation
     /* I: Task prompt */
     Your task is to create a concise and effective tool usage description based on the tool documentation. You should ensure the description only contains the purposes of the
     tool without irrelevant information. Here is an example:
     /* Examples */
     {Tool Documentation}
     Tool usage description:
     {Tool_name} is a tool that can {General_Purposes}.
     This tool has {Number} multiple built-in functions:
     1. {Function_1} is to {Functionality_of_Function_1} 2. {Function_2} is to ...
     /* Auto generation of tool description */ {ToolDocumentationof‘AviationWeatherCenter’} Tool usage description:
     ‘Aviation Weather Center’ is a tool which can provide official aviation weather data...
     II: Tool Function Guidelines Construction
     /* Task prompt */
     Your task is to create the scenario that will use the tool.
     1. You are given a tool with its purpose and its parameters list. The scenario should adopt the parameters in the list.
     2. If the parameters and parameters are both null, you
     should set: {"Scenario": XX, "Parameters":{}}.
     Here is an example:
     /* Examples */
     {Tool_name} is a tool that can {General_Purposes}. {Function_i} is to {Functionality_of_Function_i} {Parameter List of Function_i}
     One scenario for {Function_i} of {Tool_name} is: {"Scenario": XX, "Parameters":{XX:XX}}
     /* Auto-construction for Tool Function Guidelines */
     ‘Ebay’ can get products from Ebay in a specific country. ‘Product Details’ in ‘Ebay’ can get the product details for a given product id and a specific country.
     {Parameter List of ‘Product Details’}
     One scenario for ‘Product Details’ of ‘Ebay’ is:
     {"Scenario": "if you want to know the details of the product with product ID 1954 in Germany from Ebay", "Parameters":{"product_id": 1954, "country": "Germany"}}.

Upon the framework, they built Fully Responsive Intelligence Devoted to Assisting You, FRIDAY, to enable OS-integration.


The OS-copilot framwork uses the following components:

Planner To break down complex tasks, supporting planning methods Plan-and-Solve but uses a Directed acyclidc graph-based planner_.


Takes subtasks and configures it to 'help the actor complete the subtask'. It relies on Delarative Memory, procedural memory, and working memory. The declaritive memory records a User's preferences and habits and semantic knowledge, where it stores past-trajectories as ackuired from the Internet, Users, and OS. The Procedural memory enables skill development, and starts off with a small tool-repository that API-POST requests or python files can be used. Working memory exchanges information with other modules (long-term) and external operations. This is responsible for retrieinv information and updating long-term memory.


The actor executes the task and then self-criticizes to asses the successful completion of a given subtask.

UniversalNER Used ChatGPT to distill a much smaller model for a certain domain,

"Large language models (LLMs) have demonstrated remarkable generalizability, such as understanding arbitrary entities and relations. Instruction tuning has proven effective for distilling LLMs into more cost-efficient models such as Alpaca and Vicuna. Yet such student models still trail the original LLMs by large margins in downstream applications. In this paper, we explore targeted distillation with mission-focused instruction tuning to train student models that can excel in a broad application class such as open information extraction. Using named entity recognition (NER) for case study, we show how ChatGPT can be distilled into much smaller UniversalNER models for open NER. For evaluation, we assemble the largest NER benchmark to date, comprising 43 datasets across 9 diverse domains such as biomedicine, programming, social media, law, finance. Without using any direct supervision, UniversalNER attains remarkable NER accuracy across tens of thousands of entity types, outperforming general instruction-tuned models such as Alpaca and Vicuna by over 30 absolute F1 points in average. With a tiny fraction of parameters, UniversalNER not only acquires ChatGPT’s capability in recognizing arbitrary entity types, but also outperforms its NER accuracy by 7-9 absolute F1 points in average. Remarkably, UniversalNER even outperforms by a large margin state-of-the-art multi-task instruction-tuned systems such as InstructUIE, which uses supervised NER examples. We also conduct thorough ablation studies to assess the impact of various components in our distillation approach. We will release the distillation recipe, data, and UniversalNER models to facilitate future research on targeted distillation."

GitHub Repo stars CAMEL: Communicative Agents for "Mind" Exploration of Large Scale Language Model Society (King Abdullah University, March 2023)


Abstract: "The rapid advancement of conversational and chat-based language models has led to remarkable progress in complex task-solving. However, their success heavily relies on human input to guide the conversation, which can be challenging and time-consuming. This paper explores the potential of building scalable techniques to facilitate autonomous cooperation among communicative agents and provide insight into their "cognitive" processes. To address the challenges of achieving autonomous cooperation, we propose a novel communicative agent framework named role-playing. Our approach involves using inception prompting to guide chat agents toward task completion while maintaining consistency with human intentions. We showcase how role-playing can be used to generate conversational data for studying the behaviors and capabilities of chat agents, providing a valuable resource for investigating conversational language models. Our contributions include introducing a novel communicative agent framework, offering a scalable approach for studying the cooperative behaviors and capabilities of multi-agent systems, and open-sourcing our library to support research on communicative agents and beyond.
