• Comments Off on Tome vs Gamma: Comparing two AI Presentation Tools

As artificial intelligence evolves, it consistently shapes and improves various aspects of our digital world. AI truly shines in the realm of presentation creation, showcasing its remarkable capabilities. In our ongoing research, we’re examining the performance of two leading platforms: Tome vs Gamma. Before we dive into these two platforms, let’s first define an AI presentation tool and how they work.

We will explore how well these platforms use AI to generate presentations by creating a dummy presentation. We will take a look at how easy it is to create a presentation with AI. In particular we will compare how well designed elements are and the overall layout.

This comparison is part of a series where we look at different AI tools to create presentations. Also check out our own AI presentation tool: https://slidespeak.co/create-presentation-with-ai/

What is an AI Presentation Tool?

AI-powered presentation tools typically take in various input elements like text, graphics, and design preferences from the user. They then creates visually appealing slides based on the given input. As the input users typically have to provide either a general topic for the presentation or write a prompt that instructs the AI what the presentation will be about. This approach significantly speeds up PowerPoint slide deck creation compared to manual methods. By automating the content creation as well as visual aspects like layout, color, fonts, and graphics the AI will significantly streamline the creation process for impressive presentations.

How do AI Presentation Tools Work?

AI presentation tools mostly use LLMs like ChatGPT 4 or Google Bard in combination with machine learning. The tools then analyze input data, such as text and design choices, interpreting user preferences to create visually appealing slide decks. Most AI-powered presentation tools have predefined templates to pick from. Based on various techniques like prompt engineering most AI presentation tools are specifically trained and set up to get replies from an LLM within a context of creating a PowerPoint presentation.

Here are some of the advantages of AI presentation tools over traditional tools like PowerPoint and Google Slides:

  • Streamlined slide generation: By inputting prompts, the AI suggests layouts, designs, and visual elements tailored to presentation goals.
  • AI image creation: Visual AI tools generate high-quality custom images quickly, eliminating the need for crafting graphics. No more browsing of stock photos.
  • Content enhancement: Most AI presentation tools are trained on a massive amount of knowledge and data.  This means that the knowledge is endless.
  • Time and effort savings: AI Presentation automates slide creation, generating presentations in minutes, enabling users to concentrate on content and delivery.
