In this video I provide a brief overview of three AI presentation apps you need to know. These apps use artificial intelligence as a foundation function and help you create stunning presentations. The three apps covered are beautiful.ai, Haiku Deck Zuru, and slidebean Pitch Deck Builder. I cover what you need to get started, template and layout options, adding content, and presentation options.
When you think about artificial intelligence, what comes to mind? Household items that assist you with daily chores? Maybe something a bit more advanced like playing chess, food prep, or delivery? Or maybe actual robots - friendly or not. So, are your presentations being controlled by AI? Probably not, but artificial intelligence is definitely becoming a common element of presentation software.
Currently the top AI presentation app is Beautiful.ai. With a focus on corporate and business environments, it has a wide variety of options. You do need to create an account to use the software. And is free to try for a 14-day trial period.
The platform provides two types of templates: slide decks and layouts. You start by selecting a Smart Slide template. Or you can select a starter template. Once you've selected the slide design, then you have a variety of layout templates.
On the layout template you add your data, text, or images. The AI engine then adjusts its formatting as needed. For instance, if you add an image to the layout all of the objects on the slide adjust automatically.
Once your deck is done, you can present either straight from the browser or export to PowerPoint or Google Slides.
Haiku Deck Zuru
The next app I want to highlight is Haiku Deck Zuru. This is a new product from Haiku Deck. It uses AI to analyze an exiting presentation or outline and then offers slide deigns based on the content analysis. At the time of recording it is in trial mode and free to try. You do need to create an account to use it.
Once you log in you have three options, upload from an existing presentation. Create a presentation from a Wikipedia topic. Or create a presentation from you own outline.
The software then pulls out words that potentially represent the main point. You select a word and a series of related images is provided. You continue this process for each identified concept. Once you select an image, the software makes it the background. The text if placed as an overlay on the image.
Once created, you have the option to modify the slides. If you want to save or download the final presentation, you'll be asked for payment details.
Slidebean is a B2B agency focusing on helping startups develop pitch decks and connecting with investors. You can use the Pitch Deck Builder for free as part of the Basic plan. You are required to create an account and sign-in to use the free services.
In the pitch deck builder, you add your outline to plain slides. Then click the Arrange by AI to get a design for your deck. The Theme you select determines the fonts, color, and style of the slide deck. Once you are satisfied with the design you can share or export the presentation.
