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.

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
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.
