OpenAI Finally Announces The Ability To Connect ChatGPT To The Web

OpenAI, a startup for artificial intelligence technologies, said on Thursday that it has added plug-in support to ChatGPT, which greatly improves the capabilities of the popular chatbot and gives it access to live information from the web. First time.

As of today, ChatGPT has been restricted to only being able to pull information from its training data, which expires in 2021. Now OpenAI says the extensions will not only allow the bot to browse the web, but will allow it to It also interacts with specific websites, which can turn the system into a broad interface for many services and websites.

In an announcement post , the company stated that it was like allowing other services to be "GBT Chat's eyes and ears."

In an illustrative video posted to Twitter, someone uses ChatGBT to find a recipe and then orders the necessary ingredients from Instacart. ChatGBT automatically loads the list of ingredients into the shopping service, then directs the user to the site to complete the order.

OpenAI says it will offer access to the plug-ins to "a small group of users." Initially, there are 11 plugins for third-party sites, such as Expedia, OpenTable, Kayak, Klarna Shopping, and Zapier.

(OpenAI) also provides some of its plug-ins, one of which is for interpreting the code, and the other is called (browsing), which allows the ChatGPT bot to obtain information from the Internet.

As an example of what a browsing plug-in can do, the company shows a person asking how the box office sales of this year's Oscar winners compare to newly released films, and the bot showing the sources it looks at before giving its answer. This is something that GPT Chat could not achieve before.

This experimental feature is apparently similar to Microsoft's new Bing engine, which has a dedicated technology that delivers GPT-4 information, the language model underlying chatbots (GPT chat) from the Internet. However, the OpenAI plug-in not only provides real-time information, but can also bind to APIs, allowing it to "perform actions on behalf of the user," according to the company's documentation .

There are some safety and security concerns with allowing a gpt chatbot to take actions on behalf of the user rather than simply providing information.

OpenAI says it has taken into account the threats posed by these plug-ins and has “implemented several preventive measures,” including: Restricting the availability of plug-ins to a very small number of people initially.

The company said in its publication that it will initially give priority to a small group of developers and users of its paid service (GBT Chat Plus) to access the plug-ins, and you can register to join the waiting list from here .
