OpenAI has introduced an API for ChatGPT, which is powered by their AI model GPT3.5-turbo, and priced at $0.002 per 1k tokens, making it 10x cheaper than their existing GPT models.
The San Francisco-based AI research firm considers it to be its best model for many non-chat use cases and has given developers access to language and speech-to-text capabilities. OpenAI now will only retain user data for a period of 30 days. Furthermore, they have given assurances that any data entered by users will not be utilised to train their models. The release and revision in policies has made adding AI capabilities to applications, websites, products and services much more accessible and affordable for developers.
While applications like Snapchat, Quizlet, Instacart, Shopify and Speak were amongst the early adopters, several other use cases of the API have popped up:
Summarize tech is a tool that allows users to obtain a quick summary of lengthy YouTube videos, such as meetings, live events, and lectures. The tool employs the ChatGPT API to transcribe and condense extended YouTube videos into five-minute segments. Originally built by Dagster founder Pete Hunt utilising GPT-3 in September 2022, the tool recently got upgraded to the latest GPT model.
Dumme is an AI-based tool that generates short videos suitable for different platforms, such as Instagram and YouTube. The tool produces videos that do not require editing, and it also provides headlines and captions, alleviating the need for the user to come up with creative and relevant text.
