OpenAI Unveils GPT Store and Team Subscription for Collaborative Use
OpenAI has taken a significant step forward in the field of artificial intelligence with the launch of the GPT Store, a groundbreaking marketplace designed to offer users access to customized versions of ChatGPT created by fellow users.
Simultaneously, the AI developer introduced ChatGPT Team, a new paid tier of the chatbot tailored for organizational use.
Democratizing AI Development and Empowering Organizations
This move is aimed at providing a more accessible alternative to the Enterprise tier introduced by OpenAI in the previous year.
The GPT Store represents a revolutionary platform where users can publicly share their personalized versions of ChatGPT.
These customized AI models, known as GPTs, are optimized for specific tasks that may not be supported by the standard version out of the box.
The GPTs created using the low-code development tool integrated into the service’s interface can interact with external applications and leverage proprietary datasets to generate answers.
To share a GPT via the GPT Store, users must make it publicly accessible and create a Builder Profile in the marketplace.
OpenAI emphasizes that submissions will undergo a review process using a combination of manual and automated methods.
This democratization of AI development simplifies the creation of GPTs and AI products, marking a notable shift towards more precise, task-specific applications.
Shahar Chen, CEO of AI startup Aquant, sees this development as a catalyst for the industry, stating, “In 2023, AI solutions were broadly focused, but with the launch of OpenAI’s marketplace in 2024, we’ll see a noticeable shift towards vertical, industry-specific AI, moving from general industry applications to task-specific ones.”
ChatGPT Team: Empowering Organizations
OpenAI’s introduction of ChatGPT Team caters to the organizational needs of businesses, with a starting price of $25 per user per month.
Positioned as a more accessible alternative to the Enterprise tier, this offering provides a feature-rich environment similar to ChatGPT Plus, the paid consumer version of the chatbot.
OpenAI Introduces ChatGPT Team
What sets ChatGPT Team apart is its dedicated collaborative workspace, allowing team members to share GPTs seamlessly.
Administrators gain access to controls for managing workspaces and associated user accounts, enhancing the collaborative experience within organizations.
ChatGPT Team addresses the growing demand for AI solutions tailored to organizational requirements.
This comes as an alternative to ChatGPT Enterprise, the premium version reportedly costing up to $60 per user per month, offering faster AI response times and an expanded set of administrative controls.
Future Prospects and Incentives for Builders
OpenAI plans to launch a GPT builder revenue program in Q1, allowing builders to be compensated based on user engagement with their GPTs.
The move aims to encourage developers to create and share innovative GPTs, fostering a community-driven ecosystem.
As the GPT Store rolls out alongside ChatGPT Team, OpenAI positions itself at the forefront of advancing AI accessibility, collaboration, and innovation.
The marketplace promises to be a hub for diverse AI models, including those built by OpenAI partners, further enriching the capabilities of ChatGPT and expanding its utility across various domains.
