GPT "App Store" for ChatGPT AI agents

OpenAI has introduced AI customization with the launch of GPTs. This initiative allows for the creation of GPTs for a variety of purposes, from entertainment to productivity, and the potential to monetize these through a new marketplace known as the GPT Store. This new venture signifies a shift towards a more open AI marketplace, moving away from the dominance of a few general-purpose systems, and it draws inspiration from the success of platforms like Apple’s App Store by leveraging the creative potential of external developers and creators.

The ease of creating GPTs was highlighted by Sam Altman, OpenAI's founder and CEO, emphasizing that no coding experience is required and the AI can be trained for specific tasks through simple conversation. The GPT Store, akin to Apple's App Store, not only serves as a distribution hub for these models but will also feature a revenue-sharing model to reward the creators of popular and useful GPTs.

ChatGPT has 100 million weekly users

During its first developer conference, OpenAI's CEO Sam Altman revealed that ChatGPT has achieved a remarkable milestone of 100 million weekly users. Since the release of ChatGPT and Whisper models through their API in March, OpenAI has accumulated over two million developers, with the majority being from top Fortune 500 companies. The company took this opportunity to introduce new functionalities, including a platform for creating customized versions of ChatGPT tailored to specific tasks. Moreover, they announced GPT-4 Turbo, an advanced model updated with information up to April 2023, capable of handling extensive prompts equivalent to over 300 pages of text.

ChatGPT is the fastest-growing consumer internet app, reaching 100 million monthly users in just two months post-launch, outpacing major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Similarly, Microsoft's Bing, utilizing GPT-4, surpassed 100 million daily active users in March, many years after its initial 2009 release.

eBook: How to minimize third-party risk with vendor management

A robust vendor management program isn’t just required by compliance frameworks like SOC 2 and ISO 27001. It’s also a critical part of a holistic trust management strategy.

Implementing a vendor management program, however, has become more complex and challenging with the proliferation of SaaS tools and shadow IT. And many overstretched security teams are being asked to do more with less.

To stay compliant and secure — and deepen trust with customers and partners — security teams need a way to proactively manage vendor risk.

This guide from Vanta, the leading trust management platform, brings together perspectives from the frontlines of vendor security management. Get insights and best practices from security and compliance leaders. 

Can AI fix health clinician burnout?

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has initiated a 120-day Tech Sprint aimed at developing ambient dictation and an advanced document-processing system to alleviate burnout among healthcare workers and enhance clinical documentation. This AI challenge, in collaboration with various federal offices and following the latest AI Executive Order by the Biden Administration, invites teams from academia, industry, and non-profits to innovate and support VA's healthcare workers.

The VA's goals include integrating AI to manage vast data efficiently, maintaining high fidelity records of provider encounters, and ensuring interoperability with VA health systems. The AI solutions must also be secure, privacy-compliant, and capable of producing patient-facing summaries that adhere to clinical documentation standards.

Only two US states offer guidance for AI in schools

A recent report highlights that only California and Oregon have provided policy guidance for schools on the use of artificial intelligence platforms like ChatGPT, despite a growing interest from educators and administrators in having clear guidelines. The pace at which AI technology is advancing has made it challenging for governments to formulate policies.

The use of AI in education is complex, involving classroom teaching, operational use, and issues like plagiarism and misuse. The lack of comprehensive guidance at the state level has led to a divide, with some states preferring to allow individual districts to set their own policies, while others like North Carolina and Vermont are working on state-level guidance to assist districts. The urgency for guidelines is underscored by incidents of misuse, such as the generation of inappropriate images by students in New Jersey, and concerns over AI bias.
