ChatGPT has been granted the capability to browse the web by OpenAI. With the addition of plugins, the chatbot will become more effective and adaptable.
The dominance of Artificial Intelligence is becoming increasingly apparent across all areas of the online world. Recently, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates shared his positive outlook on the potential of AI to address some of the world’s most severe inequalities.
In his blog, he highlighted the ways in which AI could revolutionize healthcare, education, and other fields. Shortly after, OpenAI announced that their AI chatbot, ChatGPT, would be given the ability to utilize the vast resources of the internet.
ChatGPT was launched in November 2022 and quickly became a sensation due to its human-like responses. It has since become the most widely used application in the shortest amount of time in internet history. To enable ChatGPT to harness the power of the internet, a set of plugins was introduced by OpenAI on March 23.
The company is gradually releasing these plugins as part of their iterative deployment approach, with the aim of assessing the real-world impact and safety challenges of the chatbot.
The company has stated that users have been eagerly anticipating the introduction of plugins for ChatGPT since its launch, and developers have been experimenting with the chatbot’s vast potential use cases. Currently, a limited number of users have been granted access to the plugins, but OpenAI intends to make them widely available in the upcoming months. Additionally, the company has provided documentation to enable plugin developers on its waitlist to create plugins for ChatGPT. The first set of plugins has been developed by various companies, including Instacart, Milo, OpenTable, Shopify, Slack, Speak, Zapier, Wolfram, Expedia, FiscalNote, Klarna, and Kayak.
What do the new plugins mean for ChatGPT?
Up until now, ChatGPT has primarily been used as a language model and struggled with complex mathematical problems. However, this is about to change with the introduction of a new set of proprietary and third-party plugins by OpenAI. With the new plugins, ChatGPT will have the ability to browse the internet and provide relevant responses to user queries. This expansion will also allow users to perform various tasks, such as shopping and booking tickets, using ChatGPT. OpenAI intends to create an online plugin store similar to Google Play or iTunes, where users can purchase third-party plugins.
Essentially, the new plugins will allow users to share their to-do lists with ChatGPT, prompting the bot to automate tasks and assist with decision-making and task execution. OpenAI described the plugins as the “eyes and ears” of ChatGPT when highlighting their benefits. OpenAI’s blog explains that plugins serve as “eyes and ears” for language models like ChatGPT. They provide access to information that is too recent, personal, or specific to be included in the training data. Additionally, plugins enable language models to perform safe, constrained actions in response to a user’s request, which increases the usefulness of the system.
In practical terms, ChatGPT’s plugins work by processing a user’s prompt and emitting results based on the plugin’s specific information or calculations. These results are then interpreted by ChatGPT and presented to the user. However, there is a risk of hallucinations occurring in the responses, which experts have noted.What do the ChatGPT Plugins entail?
OpenAI recently introduced plugins for ChatGPT, which open up a range of possibilities. These plugins can enhance your experience with ChatGPT, and some examples include Expedia, which turns the bot into a travel guide, InstaCart, which allows you to order from local supermarkets, Kayak, which helps you plan trips, OpenTable, which assists you in booking a table at a restaurant, Wolfram, which provides access to mathematical and computational information, and Code Interpreter, which generates code and interprets results. Unfortunately, these plugins are currently only available to a limited number of developers and insiders, and those with a ChatGPT Plus subscription are more likely to receive priority access.
