Enhanced ChatGPT Update: Personalized Experience with Memory of Your Preferences
OpenAI’s ChatGPT platform is making groundbreaking strides in the world of AI chatbots by defying conventional wisdom. Traditionally, AI chatbots lacked continuous memory, resetting after each conversation. However, OpenAI is changing the game with its latest feature called “custom instructions,” allowing the bot to remember users from one chat to another. While the prospect is enticing, it comes with both exciting possibilities and potential risks.
The “custom instructions” feature is currently being tested as an opt-in beta for ChatGPT Plus subscribers. It enables users to set unique parameters that persist across multiple conversations. For instance, a user can inform the system about their profession, such as being a third-grade teacher, resulting in chat responses catered to a student-appropriate context. Similarly, specifying the size of one’s family can prompt the bot to provide accurate ingredient lists for recipes.
