(CTN News) – OpenAI is set to launch the GPT Store, a platform for GPTs and custom apps based on its text-generating AI models like GPT-4.
According to an email obtained by TechCrunch, developers who create GPTs will need to review OpenAI’s updated usage policies and GPT brand guidelines to ensure compliance before their creations can be listed on the store. Additionally, they must verify their user profile and ensure that their GPTs are made public.
The GPT Store was initially announced during OpenAI’s developer conference, DevDay, last year but faced delays likely due to a leadership change in November.
GPTs are versatile and can be as simple or complex as desired, allowing developers to train them on various datasets such as cookbooks or proprietary codebases.
This enables them to answer questions about specific recipes or generate code in line with industry best practices.
Rephrased: Following DevDay, developers have had the capability to directly create and share GPTs with others. However, they have not been able to publicly list them. The launch of the GPT Store with a revenue-sharing system is still uncertain.
In November, Altman and CTO Mira Murati mentioned that there was no definite plan for monetizing GPTs. The email regarding the upcoming launch of the GPT Store does not provide any information regarding payment expectations for developers.
A spokesperson has stated that OpenAI will reveal more details next week. OpenAI’s transition from an AI model provider to a platform has been intriguing, as indicated by the introduction of plug-ins for ChatGPT in March.
The creation of GPTs democratizes generative AI applications, potentially disrupting consultancies that specialize in similar models. Whether this development is positive or not remains to be seen.
