Sorry, you can’t even escape ChatGPT when you’re working now
Businesses around the world will soon be able to use ChatGPT after the increasingly popular AI service launched a new API designed specifically for businesses.
Now, OpenAI, the company behind AI chatbots, has demonstrated consumers’ willingness to use artificial intelligence to such an extent that it has turned its attention to monetizing its large-scale language model training tools.
The company recently launched a $20 per month trial subscription membership that allows paying users to access the service even during peak hours, while free users would otherwise be locked out, among other small perks — now rolling out An enterprise-focused extra service.
Enterprise Edition ChatGPT
OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman explained technology crisis (opens in a new tab) The same GPT-3.5 model powers the enterprise-facing API, but in a slightly tweaked format, known as gpt-3.5-turbo. This will allow for more frequent updates to prevent unwanted ChatGPT behavior and make AI tools better suited to the needs of businesses.
The API is said to power non-chat apps as well, with Snap, Quizlet, Instacart and Shopify all working on the technology.
It’s priced at $0.002 per 1,000 tokens, or about 750 words, which will somewhat cover the service’s monthly running costs, which can amount to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Chief executive Sam Altman has previously called the company’s operating costs “mouthwatering,” accounting for pennies per chat in computing costs alone.
Brockman added that businesses will be able to share prompts such as “responses honestly in a fun way” based on user input to help curate better responses.
Since ChatGPT launched in public preview format in November 2022, it has amassed millions of monthly active users and attracted an incredible following.
OpenAI’s LLM tool has almost limitless uses, and in addition to this API being used by businesses, we’ve seen it integrated into many Microsoft products. Clearly, then, we’re likely to encounter small snippets of the technology in services we’re already familiar with, rather than heading straight to the ChatGPT website.
