OpenAI has been working on Generative Pre-Trained Transformers (GPTs) that have attracted a lot of attention. ChatGTP has gained more than a billion visits to the company’s website in February, according to SimilarWeb. This does not include the users who use ChatGPT through third parties.
OpenAI also released an image-generation tool based on AI. It is called Dall-E. The startup has also worked on Whisper AI, a speech recognition model.
Sam Altman led OpenAI has been an AI tech pioneer. However, Google’s Bard and Meta’s LLaMa are bound to provide competition in the distant future, if not in the immediate future.
