At its DevDay, OpenAI has announced a host of exciting developments, making it easier than ever to harness the power of AI. These updates aim to empower users and provide more options for customization, while maintaining a strong focus on privacy and safety.
Let’s dive into the key highlights of OpenAI’s announcement:
Custom Versions of GPTs
OpenAI introduces – custom versions of ChatGPT called GPTs. These customized models are designed to serve specific purposes, making AI more tailored and useful in everyday life, work, or leisure.
Easily Create Your Own GPTs: No coding skills are required to build your GPT. You can personalize it for personal use, within your company, or even share it publicly.
It’s as simple as having a conversation, providing instructions, and selecting its capabilities, like web searching, image creation, or data analysis.
The GPT Store
OpenAI is launching the GPT Store, a platform where you can publicly share your GPT creations. Here’s what you can expect:
- Sharing Your GPTs: You can already create and share GPTs, and soon they will be searchable and may gain recognition on leaderboards.
- Monetize Your GPT: In the near future, you’ll have the opportunity to earn money based on the popularity of your GPT.
Privacy and Safety
OpenAI takes privacy and safety seriously, offering robust controls and safeguards:
- User Control: Your conversations with GPTs are not shared with creators. You decide whether data is sent to third-party APIs.
- Privacy Choices: Creators can choose whether user chats improve and train their models.
- Safety Measures: OpenAI has implemented new systems to review GPTs to prevent harmful or inappropriate content. Builders can verify their identity, and there’s an option to report concerns.
Connect GPTs to the Real World
In addition to its built-in capabilities, developers can define custom actions by connecting GPTs to external data sources or functions, allowing them to perform a wide range of tasks, such as database queries, email integration, or acting as a shopping assistant.
Starting November 8, 2023, enterprises can leverage GPTs for internal use, enabling users within their organizations to create and share AI models securely. These GPTs will not be used to improve OpenAI’s models, ensuring data privacy.
OpenAI emphasizes the importance of community involvement in shaping AI. They aim to broaden the group of people influencing AI development and are committed to building AI with, not just for, the community.
ChatGPT Plus: A More Convenient Experience
ChatGPT Plus now offers fresh information up to April 2023, making it a one-stop solution for various tasks. Users can access features like DALL·E, browsing, and data analysis without model-switching. It also supports file attachments for searching PDFs and other document types.
New Models and Developer Products
