OpenAI has launched a transformative feature for its ChatGPT platform, empowering subscribers to create bespoke GPT models. This pioneering move aims to streamline the user experience for power users and enterprises, offering a more intuitive interaction with AI.
Subscribers of ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise levels can now bypass the cumbersome process of inputting extensive prompts. Previously, users had to insert commands to extract desired responses from ChatGPT manually. OpenAI observed that many maintained extensive text files, curating prompts to elicit specific responses from the AI, necessitating a tedious copy-paste routine with every session.
Moreover, OpenAI is set to launch a marketplace for these custom GPTs, likened to a mobile app store, but focusing on ensuring creator credibility and user safety. Here, verified builders will have the opportunity to monetize their custom GPTs, while users can opt to share their creations publicly or retain them for internal company use.
Significantly, industry leaders such as Amgen, Bain, and Square are early adopters, leveraging these tailor-made GPTs to enhance marketing efforts, boost customer support, and streamline the onboarding process for new engineers. The utility of these GPTs stretches across various operational domains, signaling a new era of efficiency and customization in AI tools.
Additionally, while ChatGPT stands tall with over 180 million users, the AI sphere is burgeoning with competition. With tech giants like Google and newcomers like Anthropic entering the fray, and even Elon Musk unveiling his own AI chatbot “Grok,” the race is on to dominate the AI chat landscape.
