Caktus AI

Added: Jun 13, 2023

Caktus AI is an AI-powered software tool that helps you write, solve, and code faster, with personalized feedback and tutorials.

What does Caktus AI do?

Caktus AI, or Cactus AI as it’s better known by, is a platform designed to help students learn and better understand their classroom material. The platform contains an AI-powered essay writer which lets you easily find citations and improve your writing and I was particularly impressed with the question-solving tool which lets you walk through difficult math equations, tricky sentence structures, or mind-bending physics questions.

If you’re studying computer science or IT like I did, you’ll be glad to know Caktus also has a module for helping you understand tricky coding problems. The platform supports over 10 languages, including Java, Javascript and Python and just like the math question solver, Caktus AI can walk you through what each line of code means and even convert code from one language into another for you.

We Love:

  • Lots of features for multiple subjects
  • Very human-sounding essay generation
  • Math solver is incredibly useful

We Hate:

  • Hard to find any contact for support
  • Not as fast as competitors such as Jasper

Our Verdict on Caktus AI

If at any point in your academic career you think life is hard, spare a moment for my school experience 10 years ago when math teachers still thought having a calculator in your pocket at all times was a crazy idea.

Caktus AI is a revolution in learning and stands out against the crowd with it’s suite of learning tools and holds its own against competitors with a convincing, human-sounding essay writing tool. It’s not always fast enough to produce useful output during a lecture, but if you’re willing to put in the effort after class, Caktus AI is the closest thing to a perfect AI learning platform you’re ever going to find.

Insider Tips

  • Caktus comes with a trial period of 5,000 characters for free. This is more than enough to test out the platform and make sure it’s worth paying for
  • Some teachers might frown on using Caktus AI in the classroom, but remember the AI platform can help you take better lecture notes in class, it can help you ask better questions or formulate better ideas and it can free you up to spend more time listening to your professor and less time staring at a screen. Teachers take note!
  • Caktus AI produces essays which sound more convincing and human-like than ChatGPT does, so it’s worth the extra cost
  • One of my biggest frustrations with coding problems is finding the missing semi-colon or other syntax problems professors sneak in there to make sure you’re paying attention. Even if you don’t use Caktus AI’s coding features, you should consider running your final code through the platform just to make sure you haven’t missed any syntax errors.
