OpenAI has announced their intent to offer a tailored subscription plan for enterprise customers of its popular ChatGPT chatbot, which utilizes artificial intelligence.
OpenAI labels its upcoming product, ChatGPT Business, as an option designed for those in need of increased control over their data, as well as companies wishing to keep tabs on their users.
OpenAI stated in a blog post that ChatGPT Business will comply with the specifications of its API regarding data usage, thus ensuring that the data collected from end users will not be employed in training their models. They also mentioned that they plan to make the technology available in the coming months.
OpenAI had publicly indicated that it was looking into additional subscription plans for ChatGPT since it has grown rapidly. The initial subscription tier named ChatGPT Plus was made available in February and is priced at $20 each month. According to one source, ChatGPT reportedly acquired 100 million active users every month starting from January merely two months after launching, which makes it the most rapidly growing consumer application of all time.
Investigating the possibility of earning more money, OpenAI released add-ons for ChatGPT in March which gave the bot the ability to utilize third-party knowledge sources and databases, like the web, for extended use.
Despite all the debates and prohibitions, OpenAI has gained enormous public attention with ChatGPT and numerous memes have been created on the internet. Unfortunately, it is a costly feature that is being used; Sam Altman, one of the co-founders of OpenAI, said that ChatGPT’s operational expenses are exorbitant and amount to a few cents for every conversation in full-computing costs.
OpenAI made a new announcement for ChatGPT Business users – the ability to switch off history for conversations. This implies that content of conversations that was initiated when history was turned off will not be used to refine OpenAI’s models. Additionally, it will not appear in the history field. However, the company plans to store them for 30 days for review when needed to enforce the company’s policy against any potential abuse.
From this point onward, users can request for their ChatGPT data to be transmitted to them in a file and sent to the email address associated with their OpenAI account.
OpenAI’s data practices have attracted more attention from regulatory authorities recently. Italy has blocked ChatGPT because of suspected breaches of privacy, claiming that OpenAI did not have the systems in place to stop minors from using it. Additionally, France, Spain, and Germany are investigating OpenAI’s services to assess their compliance with the GDPR.
