In a groundbreaking move, OpenAI is introducing a game-changing feature—GPTs (Generative Pre-trained Transformers)—allowing users to create custom versions of ChatGPT tailored to specific purposes. Whether for personal use, within a company, or shared publicly, GPTs empower users to enhance the capabilities of ChatGPT for a wide range of tasks.
How GPTs Work
Creating a GPT is a seamless process that requires no coding. Users can start by initiating a conversation, providing instructions, additional knowledge, and specifying tasks such as web searching, image creation, or data analysis. The result is a tailored GPT designed to cater to individual needs.
Examples of GPT Applications
The versatility of GPTs is demonstrated through examples such as aiding in learning board game rules, teaching math to kids, or designing stickers. GPTs can be personalized to be more helpful in daily life, specific tasks, work-related projects, or even for recreational purposes.
The GPT Store
OpenAI is set to launch the GPT Store later this month, featuring creations by verified builders. This platform allows users to share their GPTs publicly, making them searchable and enabling them to climb leaderboards. Categories like productivity, education, and entertainment will highlight the most useful and delightful GPTs. Moreover, users will have the opportunity to earn money based on the popularity of their GPTs.
Privacy and Safety
OpenAI prioritizes user privacy and safety. Chats with GPTs are not shared with builders, and users have control over data shared with third-party APIs. Builders can decide whether user chats with their GPT can be used to improve and train models. Robust systems are in place to review GPTs against usage policies, preventing the sharing of harmful content.
Connecting GPTs to the Real World
Developers can connect GPTs to the real world by defining custom actions, allowing integration with external data or interactions. This feature enables GPTs to perform tasks such as accessing databases, interacting with emails, or assisting with e-commerce orders.
GPTs in Enterprise
For enterprise customers, GPTs offer a way to create internal-only versions of ChatGPT for specific use cases, departments, or proprietary datasets. This customization empowers enterprises to utilize GPTs for tasks like crafting marketing materials, aiding support staff, or facilitating onboarding processes.
OpenAI envisions a future where GPTs evolve into agents capable of handling real-world tasks. The company emphasizes a gradual approach, acknowledging the need for careful technical and safety considerations. OpenAI is committed to providing more analysis on the societal implications of this transformative technology.
As GPTs continue to advance, the possibilities for customization and integration into various domains are vast. OpenAI invites users, developers, and enterprises to explore the potential of GPTs and contribute to the growing ecosystem of tailored conversational AI.
