You might not be as geeky as I am. So you might not have been waiting like a kid at Christmas for the first developer day for Open AI. But I was. Mainly as a few quiet astounding things had already been leaked and I really wanted to see if they were true.
As a tech futurist and keynote speaker about AI and technology, I have to be looking forward for my clients, and perhaps seeing the world in an optimistic way. So you might not agree with me on the below — but it’s worth a read and think about. Especially about the future of work, AI and technology.
This is truly The 5th industrial revolution. And open AI (and other tech companies) are empowering us all to take advantage of this…
THE TOP TEN THINGS FROM THE DEV DAY
Launch of GPT-4 Turbo:
The new version, GPT-4 Turbo, is a better and more affordable model than its predecessor, GPT-4. This presents a more accessible point of entry for startups wanting to leverage the AI for their businesses.
Longer Context Length:
With its ability to support up to 128,000 tokens of context, GPT-4 Turbo is becoming an even more powerful tool for high-context applications or businesses, such as long-form content generation or comprehensive customer interaction.
Enhanced Control & Functionality:
Developers now have more control over the model’s responses, making the AI’s output more predictable. This opens up a wider scope for customization in AI solutions, paving the way for more unique business offerings.
Up-to-Date World Knowledge and Retrieval Features:
GPT-4 Turbo offers a more accurate understanding and recall of data up to April 2023. This can be instrumental in building businesses that rely on timely data, analysis, and predictions.
Custom Models Program:
This new program allows businesses to build personalized AI models specific to their unique use cases, providing more targeted products and services.
Introduction of JSON Load:
The ability of AI to return valid JSON arrays will expedite the communication between various software components in businesses that rely heavily on API responses.
OpenAI’s Commitment to Developers:
OpenAI’s willingness to empower developers by providing state-of-the-art AI tools and resources boosts the potential for innovative new businesses. Their commitment to increasing speed, affordability, functionality, and developer control is a real game-changer for anyone looking to start an AI-centric enterprise.
What does this mean for us entrepreneurs?
The “GPT Store,” the latest addition to the AI cosmos, serves as an invaluable resource for entrepreneurs who desire dependable and superior quality AI models for various applications. Each model allowed into the store is meticulously appraised by OpenAI, ensuring only the most reliable models are accessible, fostering an invincible trust between OpenAI and entrepreneurs.
But the GPT Store is more than just a trading post. It personifies a springboard for the exchange of grand ideas, visionary creativity, and fruitful collaboration. GPT creators can use the store to disseminate their bespoke AI models, setting the stage for groundbreaking AI solutions.
And the store doesn’t simply offer exposure — it offers financial incentives as well. OpenAI’s commitment to revenue sharing recognises and rewards the efforts and creativity of GPT creators, nurturing an ecstatic community of AI mavens.
Parallel to this, OpenAI is embarking on its journey towards “AI Agents” with the release of “Assistants” in ChatGPT. This revolutionary function can execute multiple actions in one call, imprinting a new, dynamic, and efficient experience for users. “Assistants” metamorphose into a virtual sidekick for entrepreneurs, streamlining business processes and tackling complex tasks.
The “Assistant Playground” serves as a creative sandbox — an intimate space for developmental exploration, where entrepreneurs and developers can animate their grand AI visions.
The AI realm is transforming rapidly — and this is the moment for ambitious entrepreneurs to grasp these opportunities, challenge the boundaries of the possible, and author the narrative of AI in business.
WHAT COULD THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
Your journey to becoming a pioneer in entrepreneurship begins here — where innovation meets ambition. Because YOU are worth investing time in. With every touch of a button, you are rewriting the world — creating, innovating, and making an impact.
As Sam rightly says…
SO… Unleash your power today and redefine your tomorrow with AI. Build something new.
Let’s embark on this exciting journey towards a smarter future, together.
