What Happened In The First OpenAI Developer Conference?

Matt Briggs

Last week OpenAI hosted their first developer conference and we’re here to unpack all of the news from the event!

Since launching ChatGPT to the public just a year ago, OpenAI has gone full steam ahead in upgrading and developing the technology to where it’s at today. At the first ever OpenAI developers conference which was held in San Francisco last week, there were many announcements that are sure to disrupt the industry and make waves across the globe. Without further ado, let’s delve in and untangle exactly what was announced in the world of AI!

GPT-4 Turbo

OpenAI announced the launch of GPT-4 Turbo which is said to be a new and improved version of the existing GPT-4 model. The upgrade turbo will be available in two versions one that is simply for text analysis and the other for both text and images. The latest model is capable of creating over 300 pages of content with just a single prompt, highlighting how much the tech has truly advanced since launching just one year ago.

Customised GPT

Businesses and individuals will soon have the capability to create their own GPT models with the help of OpenAI researchers. Users will be able to create their own versions of GPT whether it’s just for fun or it’s to improve their business’ productivity and efficiency. The best (or perhaps worst) part of this announcement is that users won’t even have to know how to code in order to create their very own GPT *gasp*. Some argue that OpenAI aim to be the App Store of the AI world, where users can search for and discover various versions of AI that suit their unique requirements.

ChatGPT Milestone

As ChatGPT hit its one year anniversary of being launched into the public realm, it also hit another milestone! ChatGPT now has over 100 million global users every, single, week – woah! It’s safe to say that the AI tool is pretty popular and even managed to hit it’s first 100 million users within just a matter of month. Not only that, over 2 million developers are currently working on the tech and developing new solutions as we speak.


The latest version of Open AI’s DALLE-3 is set to understand significantly more nuanced language than was ever possible before. OpenAI claim that DALL-E 3 can now translate ideas into “exceptionally accurate images.”

Copyright News

Finally, the conference also saw the announcement that OpenAI is set to protect businesses who whose the brand’s AI against copyright claims, promising that they will suck up the legal fees involved in lawsuits associated with businesses using ChatGPT.

It’s safe to say that the AI movement is full steam ahead, with no signs of slowing down whatsoever. It’ll be interesting to see how each of the announcements we’ve discussed above progress and evolve over the next year of ChatGPT. But for now, it’s certainly time to embrace AI, even if you’re somewhat wary of the tech.
