- OpenAI has made a series of announcements this week that will be of interest to developers.
- These include a new API that will allow devs to integrate ChatGPT in their apps.
- The company has also updated its Terms of Service, providing an opt-out when it comes to developer data sharing.
The most significant change is the release of an API for developers to integrate ChatGPT into their applications.
Added to this is OpenAI’s Whisper speech-transcription model, along with an update to the Terms of Service that will allow developers to opt out of data sharing, as well as a 30-day data retention model being thrown into the mix.
“ChatGPT and Whisper models are now available on our API, giving developers access to cutting-edge language (not just chat!) and speech-to-text capabilities. Through a series of system-wide optimizations, we’ve achieved 90% cost reduction for ChatGPT since December; we’re now passing through those savings to API users,” the company explained in a blog post.
It also highlighted some of the developers that have been making use of its API, outside of Microsoft for Bing, with Snap Inc. recently debuting My AI.
“My AI offers Snapchatters a friendly, customizable chatbot at their fingertips that offers recommendations, and can even write a haiku for friends in seconds. Snapchat, where communication and messaging is a daily behavior, has 750 million monthly Snapchatters,” it continued.
Developers wanting to make use of the new API, should also note the following in terms of cost.
“The ChatGPT model family we are releasing today, gpt-3.5-turbo, is the same model used in the ChatGPT product. It is priced at $0.002 per 1k tokens, which is 10x cheaper than our existing GPT-3.5 models.”
