Additionally, they are simplifying the process for developers to customize artificial intelligence “agents,” enabling them to assist with a wide range of tasks, from providing advice on laundry to aiding in contract negotiations.
The tech industry has been buzzing with discussions about the potential advantages and concerns surrounding generative AI ever since the highly successful launch of ChatGPT a year ago.
The introduction of this technology has sparked both enthusiasm for its potential benefits and apprehension about potential risks within the tech community. These discussions have remained at the forefront of the tech world since the groundbreaking debut of ChatGPT.
OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, shared an optimistic vision with developers in San Francisco, expressing that as intelligence becomes integrated everywhere, individuals will have on-demand superpowers, enabling them to achieve more and create more.
The OpenAI platform has garnered over 2 million developers, and ChatGPT sees weekly usage by more than 100 million people, as reported by the San Francisco-based startup.
Altman humorously recalled the low-key research preview launch of ChatGPT about a year ago, which he noted went quite well. This launch initiated a competitive race in the field of artificial intelligence, involving major players like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Meta.
Altman has actively engaged with lawmakers, testifying before the US Congress about AI and holding discussions with heads of state. The increasing pressure to regulate AI stems from concerns about potential risks, including its use in bioweapons, misinformation, and other threats.
Recently, President Joe Biden issued an executive order focused on regulating artificial intelligence. The order aims for the United States to take a leading role in global efforts to manage the risks associated with this transformative technology. It directs federal agencies to establish new safety standards for AI systems and mandates that developers share safety test results and other crucial information with the US government, according to the White House.
Reflecting the growing significance of AI, the UK hosted the world’s first major summit on AI safety last week. Political and tech leaders convened to discuss potential responses to the societal impact of this groundbreaking technology.
OpenAI, led by CEO Sam Altman, introduced a “Turbo” version of its top software, focusing on reduced pricing to promote wider adoption of the technology.
Describing ChatGPT-4 Turbo as a “smarter model,” Altman emphasized the decision to prioritize affordability first, with plans to enhance speed in the future.
OpenAI is now allowing the creation of custom “agents” known as “GPTs,” designed for specific tasks like business negotiation advice, laundry tips, homework assistance, and tech support. In a blog post, OpenAI highlighted that anyone can easily build their own GPT without the need for coding, catering to personal, internal company, or broader usage.
In the coming month, OpenAI plans to launch a GPT “store,” providing an opportunity for developers to earn based on the usage of their GPTs.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, expressing excitement, praised OpenAI’s innovations, acknowledging the magical creation by the company. Microsoft’s substantial investment in OpenAI has led to the integration of its technology into Microsoft offerings, including the Bing search engine.
Insider Intelligence’s principal analyst Yory Wurmser noted that OpenAI’s recent moves would simplify the development of conversational AI interfaces, making them more accessible to various companies.
During a recent TED AI conference in San Francisco, OpenAI co-founder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever highlighted the growth of artificial intelligence, envisioning a future where digital brains inside computers surpass human intelligence.
