OpenAI is postponing the launch of its ChatGPT Store until 2024. In it, Internet users will be able to find various generative artificial intelligence models to meet their various needs. Some people may even be able to earn money by sharing their own custom GPT AI models, since OpenAI may remunerate popular developers.
One of OpenAI's latest announcements is the possibility of creating your own custom, pre-trained AI models, called GPTs – Generative Pre-trained Transformers – dedicated to specific searches or tasks. Premium users can now configure these by entering their own instructions (prompts), or even uploading documents that the language model will need to use to complete its mission. These GPTs will be able to perform tasks like online searches, image generation (Dall-E) or even writing code. The choice is yours.
Soon, it will be possible to offer the community your own custom-built AI models, through a GPT Store. However, this store will not be launched until early 2024, according to Axios, which quotes a memo from OpenAI addressed to developers. The idea is that everyone will be able to find GPTs to meet their own needs. Professionals will be able to find templates to easily create chatbots or personalised virtual assistants, while students will be able to find GPTs adapted to their subjects of choice.
Those who develop the most popular custom GPTs may even make money from their creations. For the moment, however, OpenAI has not released any details of this compensation policy, or about whether these GPTs will be available free of charge or for a fee.
In the meantime, users can make use of the AI chatbot's voice assistant functionality to chat directly with ChatGPT, whether you have a free or paid-for account. – AFP Relaxnews
