OpenAI's first-ever developer conference, DevDay 2023, was held at the SVN West facility in San Francisco and showcased several groundbreaking advancements in artificial intelligence. The conference was kickstarted with a keynote address by Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, who highlighted the milestones achieved by OpenAI in the last year1. Here are the key takeaways from the event:
  1. Assistants API: This new API helps developers in building 'agent-like experiences' within their applications. It allows developers to create assistants with specific instructions using generative AI models for tasks such as data analysis, coding, etc. It is backed by Code Interpreter, OpenAI’s in-house tool that writes and runs codes1.
  2. GPT Store: OpenAI announced the launch of its GPT Store where creators can list their GPTs. This will come with a revenue-sharing model to reward the most useful and popular applications. The store is expected to go live in late November15.
  3. Copyright Shield: This is a program that will offer protection to ChatGPT enterprise and API customers from copyright lawsuits1.
  4. New interface for ChatGPT: The new interface for ChatGPT is simple with a dark background. It features the OpenAI logo and the words “How can I help you today?” The revamped interface will make it easy for one to switch between ChatGPT and DALL-E 31.
  5. Updated Information Source for ChatGPT: While earlier the AI-powered chatbot had information limited to September 2021, now GPT-4’s information source has been updated to April 2023. ChatGPT will now also be able to search PDFs and other documents1.
  6. GPT-4 Turbo: OpenAI released a more advanced version of GPT-4 called GPT-4 Turbo. It handles 128K context, allowing prompts equivalent to 300 pages of text. Pricing is now 3x cheaper for input and 2x cheaper for output versus GPT-410.
  7. Multimodal Abilities: OpenAI announced new multimodal capabilities in the platform, including vision, image creation (DALL·E 3), and text-to-speech (TTS)5.
  8. Custom Models Program: OpenAI is launching a Custom Models program, giving select organizations the opportunity to work with OpenAI researchers to train custom GPT-4 to their domain5.
  9. Expanded partnership with Microsoft: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made a surprise appearance at the event, acknowledging the collaboration between Microsoft and OpenAI and the changes it has brought to Azure, Microsoft's cloud platform112.
The conference also revealed that ChatGPT has amassed 100 million weekly active users in the year since its launch, with two million developers on the platform and 92% of Fortune 500 companies building off OpenAI products2. The wide-ranging announcements across its AI services showcase OpenAI’s vision towards building a world where AI will act as an enabler1.
