OpenAI took the leash (and the “Chat”) off ChatGPT today with the announcement of GPTs, a way for anyone to build their own version of the popular conversational AI system. Not only can you make your own GPT for fun or productivity, but you’ll soon be able to publish it on a marketplace they call the GPT Store — and maybe even make a little cash in the process. The new features, announced with many others today at OpenAI’s first developer day in San Francisco, indicate a more hands-off approach to the AI marketplace, which has hitherto been defined by a handful of dedicated general-purpose systems. Indeed, said systems are becoming even more general-purpose with new capabilities, but the AI giant has clearly taken a page from Apple’s book in seeing that being the go-to platform for the ingenuity of others is at least as valuable as having ingenuity oneself. “We believe if you give people the tools, they will do amazing things,” said founder and CEO Sam Altman onstage. To that end the company is introducing what it’s calling GPTs, “custom versions of ChatGPT that you can create for a specific purpose.” (And yes, you can expect some confusion on that point, since GPT, or “generative pretrained transformer” is actually the technical term for this type of large language model.) GPTs can be made with no coding experience, and can be as simple or complex as you like, as they explained. For instance, you could have a GPT trained on your recipe collection so you can quickly ask what ingredients you need for that one soup. Or you could have it ingest information on a sprawling fantasy series so you can ask it “wait, who’s Sir Roderick Random?” And if you’re more serious-minded, you could as a developer or company have a GPT trained on all your proprietary code, so others can quickly check their style or generate harmonious code.

Then he uploaded a lecture he’d given on the subject, told it to be concise and constructive, and decided it was ready to go. You’ll also be able to bring in outside services, like sending an unsupported language out to a translation API — but users will be able to choose whether their data can b
