OpenAI has unveiled several upgrades to ChatGPT during its inaugural developer conference. One notable feature is “Create a GPT,” which allows ChatGPT Plus subscribers to design their own AI assistant, customising it to meet their unique needs. Additionally, OpenAI introduced a powerful new GPT-4 model, integrated the DALL-E 3 image generator, and introduced new plug-ins connecting to other online services.
A significant development is the upcoming GPT Store, set to open in November, serving as an App store for chatbots. OpenAI plans to feature the most useful and delightful GPTs in categories like productivity, education, and entertainment. This move reflects the growing importance of AI chatbots in the technology landscape.
Other improvements include the release of new ‘Turbo’ versions for GPT-4 and GPT-3.5, with GPT-4 Turbo trained on data up to April 2023, providing more recent and relevant information. To protect enterprise and API users from legal issues related to copyright infringement, OpenAI has implemented a ‘Copyright Shield,’ though this feature is not available to free and Plus users.
With over 100 million active users, ChatGPT has become a reliable tool for productivity. The introduction of an app store for chatbots has the potential to create opportunities for developers and businesses, similar to the impact of the iPhone’s App Store. The announcement suggests that integrating ChatGPT into business operations could be beneficial, given its popularity and ongoing developments.
