OpenAI postpones launch of custom GPT store to early 2024, announced at DevDay

ChatGPT maker OpenAI has delayed the launch of its custom GPT store until early 2024, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters on Friday.

During its first developer conference in November, OpenAI introduced a custom GPT and store, scheduled to launch later that month.

The memo said the company is continuing to “make improvements” to GPT based on customer feedback.

The delay comes against the backdrop of the startup’s reinstatement of its CEO Sam Altman following the surprise ouster of its CEO Sam Altman and threats by employees to quit.

GPTs are early versions of AI assistants that perform real-world tasks such as booking flights on behalf of the user. It is also expected to allow users to share their GPT and earn money based on the number of users.

Last month, OpenAI announced It intends to work with organizations to generate public and private datasets for training artificial intelligence (AI) models.

The popular chatbot ChatGPT, which can generate poems and prose from simple prompts, is based on large language models trained entirely on open-source data available on the Internet.

The company’s latest effort could help it create more granular training data that is more interactive in style.

“We are specifically looking for data that expresses human intent in any language, topic, and format,” the company said in a blog post.

OpenAI said it is looking for partners to help it create an open-source dataset for training language models. It says this dataset will be public for anyone to use in AI model training.

The company said it is also building private datasets for training proprietary AI models.
