Recently, rumors have been swirling that OpenAI is on a downward trend and people are getting bored of all the hype surrounding the company’s generative AI tool, ChatGPT.
Sam Altman, OpenAI CEO, pushed back hard on that idea at the first-ever ChatGPT Developers Conference called “OpenAI DevDay” which recently kicked off in San Francisco.
Altman said that the company was seeing 100 million weekly users for ChatGPT with two million developers actively building their own models on the framework – including 92% of the Fortune 500 companies.
The company also announced that the next version of ChatGPT called GPT-4 Turbo is available for preview.
GPT-4 Turbo will be three times cheaper than GPT-4 for input tokens, and two times cheaper for output tokens.
Developers will be able to utilize Assistants APIs to build agent-like experiences directly into applications.
The new beta of GPT-4 Turbo accepts images as input and can analyze pictures in detail, even reading documents directly.
GPT-4 Turbo also provides the first link to DALL-E, OpenAI’s text-to-image model which allows GPT-4 Turbo to output generated images based on prompts.
Developers can utilize enhanced fine-tuning features in a playground environment and also get the opportunity to work directly with OpenAI developers to build custom models for their organizations.
The customization will only be available to a few companies that are able to pay very steep fees for the benefit of owning their own proprietary generative AI framework.
The company shows no signs of slowing down, as ChatGPT is one of the fastest-growing applications of all time, having grown to 100 million users weekly in less than a year.
