At their first developer conference, OpenAI shared some cool updates for ChatGPT. One interesting thing is the “Create a GPT” feature. If you’re a ChatGPT Plus subscriber (that’s $20 per month), you can now make your own AI helper. OpenAI also introduced a powerful new AI model and a kind of online store where you can find chatbots, sort of like an App Store.
ChatGPT is competing with other AIs like Bing Chat and Google Bard, so they’re always trying to improve. This year, they added OpenAI’s Dall-E 3 image maker, a strong GPT-4 model, and some plugins that connect to different online services.
Here’s a quick look at the updates:
- ChatGPT Plus subscribers can customize ChatGPT with the ‘Create a GPT’ option.
- OpenAI is launching the GPT Store in November, like an App store for chatbots in categories like work, learning, and fun.
- New ‘Turbo’ versions for GPT-4 and GPT-3.5, with GPT-4 Turbo using more recent data up to April 2023, fixing issues with info after September 2021.
- OpenAI added a ‘Copyright Shield’ to protect business users from legal problems with copyright. Unfortunately, free and Plus users don’t get this.
Why does this matter for small businesses? Well, ChatGPT has over 100 million users, and people really like it for getting things done. The new GPT Store could create opportunities for businesses, kind of like the iPhone’s App Store did. If your business isn’t using ChatGPT yet, it might be worth checking out.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT upgrades offer personalized AI experiences and a GPT Store for diverse applications. With features like Dall-E 3 integration and GPT-4, it’s a valuable tool for businesses.
