OpenAI Connects ChatGPT to the Internet
April 4, 2023
OpenAI has made available to a group of developers a group of libraries accompanied by basic documentation to show accessories for ChatGPT. This displacement will significantly increase the capacity of the chatbot, since it will allow it to connect to the Internet and access updated information. More than anything, the type of topics that are published over and over again on the Internet.
Throughout its training stage, ChatGPT had only had access to a specific list of sources to collect the data that it later uses once it answers the questions that are asked of it. However, now OpenAI has decided that the time has come to let you browse the Internet freely, get new information and even interact with the websites you visit.
In a video uploaded to Twitter you can see how, using one of the plugins that have already been implemented, a person asks ChatGPT to recommend a recipe, to calculate the calories it has and to make the list of the buy in an online store. The chatbot automatically indicates a dish, suggests its calories, selects items in a store, and includes a link to proceed to checkout and payment.
OpenAI has indicated that its partners have published 11 plugins that give ChatGPT the chance to connect to sites like Expedia, Kayak, OpenTable or Zapier. In addition, our company in the United States has developed 2 more: one to interpret code and another called Browsing to navigate the Internet.
Beyond how shocking it is to verify the tremendous progress of ChatGPT in just a few months thanks to the use of AI (artificial intelligence) and the new GPT-4 language model, it is no less true that it causes some concern to see how at this point It is already capable, not only of compiling information, but also of carrying out activities without involving the participation of a person. And it is that, the probability that before long someone manages to generate a plugin that allows ChatGPT to make purchases and make payments without the explicit consent of a person exposes obvious stability problems.
OpenAI ensures that it has kept that scenario in mind and has implemented numerous safeguards, including determining the availability of accessories to a limited number of individuals. The era will tell if those measures are enough or if, on the other hand, they will reach a point where it will be essential to integrate parameters into the type of activities that ChatGPT can do on its own.
OpenAI has unveiled GPT-4, the latest version of its AI (artificial intelligence) based multimodal language model behind ChatGPT and the new Bing. The technology that it adds enables it to give more specific answers, on more different topics and with a more humane language. In addition, it can solve complicated problems with great accuracy and is capable of differentiating the contents of a multitude of images, describing them with words and, using examples, suggesting recipes from the elements they detect in a photograph.
OpenAI has partnered with numerous organizations to integrate this technology into their products, among which Duolingo, Stripe and Khan Academy stand out. It will also be available through an API so that developers can generate applications that make use of it. The huge public will be able to access GPT-4 through ChatGPT Plus, a subscriber service that costs $20 per month.
The free version of ChatGPT, however, will continue to work under the previous version. Despite the improvements that have been implemented, OpenAI has pointed out that GPT-4 is not infallible and that it sometimes has “hallucinations” in which it gives wrong answers and passes them off as true. Still, it is believed that GPT-4 has 40% more ways to give objective resolutions than GPT-3.5.
