The GPT Store is Here

PLUS: Technology Vision 2024

Hello readers,

Welcome to another edition of This Week in the Future! OpenAI has finally launched the GPT Store after being delayed due to some CEO drama you may have heard about. Plus, Accenture graces us with its vision for tech in 2024.

As always, thanks for being a subscriber! No video breakdown this week as our video editor is at CES. Look out for our coverage of that event soon.

Let’s get into it!

All You Can Compute

First announced at OpenAI DevDay, the GPT Store has started rolling out to paying users of ChatGPT. The store allows users to access a variety of custom GPTs developed by both OpenAI's partners and the broader development community. Users can browse GPTs by category, such as lifestyle, writing, research, programming, and education.

Developing a GPT doesn't require extensive coding knowledge, and they can be as straightforward or complex as desired. Developers can describe their GPT in natural language, and OpenAI's GPT Builder will attempt to create a chatbot accordingly.

The GPT Store also introduces a review system to ensure that the GPTs adhere to OpenAI's terms of use. OpenAI is still planning a revenue sharing program, allowing U.S. builders to earn based on user engagement with their GPTs.

Our Take

With 3 million custom GPTs, it’ll be interesting to see how much value this store holds long-term. All this specialization seems counter to the idea of artificial general intelligence. Now, we have 3 million narrow intelligences to sift through. What will become of the GPT Store if OpenAI achieves its mission?
