OpenAI recently unveiled the GPT Store, an innovative platform granting users access to tailor-made AI assistants.
Since the introduction of custom ‘GPTs’ two months ago, users have crafted over three million personalized assistants. The GPT Store now allows creators to share their unique AI creations with a broader audience.
The store boasts a diverse array of assistants, each specializing in various domains such as art, research, programming, education, lifestyle, and more. OpenAI spotlights particularly useful assistants, including those offering personalized trail recommendations from AllTrails, academic paper searches with Consensus, coding skill expansion through Khan Academy’s Code Tutor, presentation design with Canva, book recommendations from Books, and math assistance from CK-12 Flexi.
Creating an assistant is user-friendly and requires no coding expertise. To share an assistant, creators need to make it accessible to ‘Anyone with the link’ and verify their profile. OpenAI has implemented new usage policies and brand guidelines to ensure compliance, incorporating a review system that involves both human and automated checks before assistants are listed. Users can also flag any concerning content they encounter.
Starting from Q1 2024, OpenAI plans to compensate qualifying US-based builders for user engagement with their assistants, with more details on payment criteria to be disclosed closer to the launch.
For enterprise users, OpenAI has introduced ChatGPT Team plans catering to teams of all sizes. These plans provide access to a private store section where company-specific assistants can be securely published to their workspace. ChatGPT Enterprise customers will soon have admin controls for internal sharing and the ability to select which external assistants can be utilized by employees. Notably, all ChatGPT Team and Enterprise content conversations will not be utilized to enhance OpenAI’s models.
With the widespread adoption of ChatGPT, OpenAI aims to further its momentum through the introduction of the GPT Store and associated revenue opportunities. The goal is to incentivize builders to create assistants that offer substantial value to both consumers and enterprises.
