OpenAI’s AI Chatbot Surpasses 100 Million Weekly Users with New Model and Lower Prices
OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, announced during the company’s first developer conference that their AI chatbot has reached an impressive milestone of 100 million weekly active users. Altman also unveiled a new model that is not only more capable but also supports a 128K context window. This new model marks a significant advancement for OpenAI’s chatbot service, which was released nearly a year ago and quickly gained an estimated 100 million monthly users within just two months of its launch.
Altman revealed that over two million developers are currently using the platform, with more than 92 percent of Fortune 500 companies among them. This widespread adoption reflects the effectiveness and value that OpenAI’s chatbot brings to a wide range of industries.
The newly introduced GPT-4 Turbo boasts an impressive 128k context window, allowing it to handle the equivalent of more than 300 pages of text in a single prompt. Not only does this enable users to input more extensive information, but OpenAI has optimized the model’s performance to offer it at a significantly lower price compared to its predecessor, GPT-4. Altman emphasized that the new GPT-4 Turbo is three times cheaper for input tokens and two times cheaper for output tokens.
In addition to GPT-4 Turbo, OpenAI is also releasing a new version of GPT-3.5 Turbo, which supports a 16K context window by default. This expanded context window allows for even more comprehensive and detailed interactions with the AI chatbot.
To further enhance the capabilities of their chatbot service, OpenAI has introduced the Assistants API. This API enables developers to build agent-like experiences within their own applications, enhancing the functionality and versatility of their products. OpenAI’s Assistants API includes features such as a Code Interpreter, Retrieval capabilities, and function calling, empowering developers to create AI-powered assistants with specific instructions and additional knowledge.
OpenAI is also addressing the need for high-quality speech generation with their text-to-speech API. This API offers six preset voices to choose from and two generative AI model variants, allowing developers to generate human-like speech from text. With pricing starting at $0.015 per input 1,000 characters, this API opens up new possibilities for integrating natural and realistic speech into various applications and services.
Furthermore, OpenAI announced the integration of DALL·E 3, their recently launched product, directly into the apps and products of ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise users. This integration expands the creative capabilities of users by leveraging DALL·E’s advanced image generation capabilities.
OpenAI’s achievements in surpassing 100 million weekly users, introducing new models, and offering lower prices demonstrate the company’s commitment to providing powerful and accessible AI tools to developers and enterprises worldwide. With their continuous innovations and growing user base, OpenAI is shaping the future of AI chatbot technology and powering a wide range of industries with their robust solutions.
