OpenAI Introduces Custom ChatGPT Bots and AI Store

OpenAI premium subscribers will now be able to create and market their Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformers (GPTs) as the company aims to establish an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot marketplace.

On Monday’s first-ever Developer Day, the US-based AI firm debuted custom GPTs for paying members. OpenAI is mirroring the move of tech industry leaders like Apple and Google by introducing a digital store for large language models (LLMs).

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman stated at the event that ChatGPT today logs 100 million users per week. Roughly 92% of the Fortune 500 is also using their AI products.

As the AI scene becomes more crowded, the company is keen on maintaining its early lead in the industry by developing a fresh competitive dynamic.

OpenAI is, therefore, seizing the latest AI trend, custom chatbots. Competing AI companies such as Character.AI already let users easily build and share AI personas, which can be real or fictional people.

Meta Platforms also plans to provide a similar feature, having recently revealed chatbots based on high-profile personalities.

However, OpenAI seems to adopt a more conservative approach than the unique bots found on Character.AI. The company prohibits creating adult-themed bots, pledging that it would actively prevent users from conning or spreading offensive content.

OpenAI allows paid subscribers to develop customized ChatGPTs designed to assist in specific tasks, be it office- or home-based. For example, the company said users can create bots capable of teaching board games, tutoring kids in math, or designing stickers.

Transforming OpenAi’s App Store to AI Marketplace

OpenAI’s GPT store, set to debut later this month, will showcase AI creations from verified developers and ultimately be available to the general public.

The company expects natural language prompts to be a future-fit interface for users to interact with AI tech as innovation advances and adoption increases. By simplifying GPT creation for ordinary users, OpenAI seeks broader user participation.

The AI pioneer currently has a global community of 2 million developers using its products. At the firm’s annual event, it distributed $500 worth of credits to everyone in the audience to encourage them to build their own GPTs with the new tools.

It was reported that the next-gen interfaces, such as voice and natural language, are already transforming how end-users interact with computing processes and workflows.
