OpenAI will allow developers to include ChatGPT into their applications
Today, OpenAI, the startup behind ChatGPT and DALL-E 2, announced a number of important modifications. Initially, it will make developer APIs available for ChatGPT and the Whisper speech-transcription paradigm. It also modified its terms of service to allow developers to opt out of having their data used for improvement purposes, as well as introducing a 30-day data retention policy.
The new ChatGPT API will make use of the same artificial intelligence (AI) model (gpt-3.5-turbo) as the well-known chatbot, enabling developers to integrate plain or customised versions of ChatGPT into their applications. Snap’s My AI, as well as a new virtual instructor function for the online study tool Quizlet and an impending Ask Instacart tool in the popular local-shopping app, are early examples. The API, however, will not be confined to brand-specific bots that resemble ChatGPT; it may also power “non-chat” software experiences that may benefit from AI brains.
