OpenAI plans to roll out new features for developers next month that will make it easier and cheaper to create software applications based on its technology.
- OpenAI is expected to release two major updates at its DevDay event in November 2023.
- The first feature is the addition of memory storage to reduce processing costs.
- The second feature is the ability to create applications that can analyze and describe images.
OpenAI, the company behind the popular ChatGPT artificial intelligence chatbot, is preparing to roll out new features for developers next month that will make it easier and cheaper to create software applications based on its technology, according to an article by Reuters.
The new OpenAI updates include two major advancements:
- The addition of memory storage to its developer tools for using AI models. This could lower the costs for application makers who use OpenAI’s platform by as much as 20 times, as they will be able to reuse the data from conversation histories without having to process it again.
- The ability to create applications that can analyze and describe images using OpenAI’s artificial intelligence models. This will enable developers to build software that can perform tasks such as object detection, face recognition, scene understanding, and caption generation.
These releases are designed to lure more developers to pay to access OpenAI’s diverse set of models to build their own AI software, such as AI-powered chatbots, writing assistants, and autonomous agents that can perform tasks without human intervention.
The new features are in line with CEO Sam Altman’s vision of transforming OpenAI from a consumer sensation into a popular developer platform with its own ecosystem.
The updates are expected to be rolled out at OpenAI’s first-ever developer conference DevDay in San Francisco on November 6, sources told Reuters.
OpenAI declined to comment.
Earlier this year, OpenAI launched ChatGPT plugins, which are add-on tools that enable developers to build applications within the AI chatbot. The company hoped that plugins would emulate the success of Apple’s iOS App Store and give it an edge over competing AI chatbots like Google’s Bard. However, Altman told a group of developers at a London event that the plugins have failed to gain popularity in the market as anticipated.
OpenAI is preparing to release new features for developers in November that will make it easier and cheaper to create software applications based on its models. The addition of memory storage and the ability to create applications that can analyze and describe images are expected to attract more developers to pay for OpenAI’s technology to build their own AI software.
