The technology behind ChatGPT just got smarter.
During its developer conference held in San Francisco on Monday, OpenAI unveiled a number of upgrades to the artificial intelligence tools it uses. Among them is the ability for developers to create custom versions of ChatGPT.
At the same time, OpenAI is launching a digital storefront and lowering its base prices for developers, while also committing to pay some of those who use its companies’ products on their platforms.
ChatGPT a year later
The event took place almost a year after the launch of ChatGPT which went a long way in starting the company race for AI products. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said 2 million developers use the platform and about 90% of Fortune 500 companies use its tools. According to the official update, it currently has 100 million active users.
The CEO of Microsoft, Sadiya Nadella, was also present at the event, as the company he runs is one of the first funders of OpenAI.
The big changes announced
Among the biggest changes announced is the introduction of GPTs or custom versions of ChatGPT. Similar to plugins, GPTs can connect to databases, be used for emails or facilitate e-commerce orders, the company said.
On her website she states that GPTs could be used to help teach math or design stickers, with no prior programming experience. Users can try it out via chatgpt.com/create. However, for now, it doesn’t seem to be available in Greece.
A digital ecosystem
OpenAI is also developing a GPT Store, expected later this month, to allow GPTs to become searchable. Of course the developers who will create the GPTs will make money depending on how many people have used them.
Altman also introduced GTP-4 Turbo, the latest version of the technology that powers ChatGPT. The platform will continue to expand its knowledge until April 2023 and will continue to improve over time. We remind you that the current GPT issuer that powers ChatGPT has knowledge of what has happened in the world until 2021.
