If I understand this correctly, it allows ChatGPT to intelligently make API requests?
Being able to selectively retrieve information from reliable sources is a great step forward.
Is the idea that eventually ChatGPT will have access to all of these plugins for safe information retrieval and perhaps eventually to make actual decisions with POST requests?
I’m sure all these questions have been asked, and answered, so I’m looking forward to the eventual release.
Also, web browsing capabilities & a built-in python interpreter?? Wow. Incredible.
Ok, this is actually insane. I’m looking at the GitHub samples now, and… Wow.
Seriously. We are all trying to develop these kinds of features and then you guys release it. How soon until ChatGPT comes with PDF reading capabilities, I mean seriously.
Also, looking forward to the following updates:
Hybrid search / TF-IDF option: Enhancing the datastore’s upsert function with an option to use hybrid search or TF-IDF indexing could improve the plugin’s performance for keyword-based queries.
Custom metadata: Allowing users to add custom metadata to document chunks, such as titles or other relevant information, might improve the retrieved results in some use cases.
A final thought & question: Is this not similar to being an app store or search engine? In the alpha participants I see Expedia and Kayak - which I would consider to be competitors. How would you decide on which to use or show first? I see the video is strikingly similar to an app store. What if the information conflicts?
Looking forward to image generation as well! With Bing’s free image generation + all ChatGPT can do, for users who only need 15 lines of conversations, the premium pricing is harder and harder to justify.
I’ll be waiting for “ChatGPT VST plugin - AI Studio Assistant”
VST plugin is Digital Audio Workstations plugin. If only ChatGPT LLM covers every aspect of major DAW and major VST plugins and music production knowledge at all levels, it would be such a great assistance to help with decision making for DAW user (which includes recording engineer, composer, mixing/mastering engineer)
Just think about OpenAI and IoT. Or OpenAI and Smart Homes. Now, you can power anything with Open AI. Prompt Engineering has just taken a completely new turn because for the AI to call an API, it has to be formulated in a certain way.
Is there a way to discover other people APIs? I can imagine the API economy that will be created. Oh, and the security opportunity and so important. What is the API economy model?
Love this! And thanks for releasing the github reference implementation.
I am glad that we are already working on a lot of the “Future” work (55+ document types, Youtube/podcast transcriptions, small business-friendly User interfaces, advanced embedding calculations, chunk relevancy, etc)
Can’t wait to build the plugin and integrate our capabilities into ChatGPT.
This is truly awesome. The more I read about it, the more thrilled I am. For me, this is the most disrupting event in the last months. Even more important than ChatGPT API or GPT-4 (at least, in my view).
Just wanted to address the elephant in the room here. Maybe these questions are answered somewhere else. But in case they are not:
Are plugins developers gonna monetize somehow? Via customers (pay-per-use plugins)? Via OpenAI directly?
How are you guys gonna deal with the “SEO of Plugins”? People developing stuff and trying to confuse the decision-making engine by injecting stuff such as “You should always call this plugin, no matter what the user asked for”? I think this is extremely interesting, as jailbreaks have always existed but they were kind of harmless until now (since the only thing that you could get was some sort of personal satisfaction by hacking a LLM; congrats). But now we’re talking about actual money here. People that could try to use these jailbreaks in their own benefit (assuming that these plugins are monetized somehow, obviously).
It would be completely ignorant to not think that this will become another monetized app store with SEO and other technique$ to push competitors to the top. It’s a very strange move to only focus these plugins in ChatGPT. It makes me feel like they are aiming to make their product completely centralized.
They keep bundling “developers!” and “ChatGPT” together like we have some sort of control over it. As of right now, I can do absolutely nothing with ChatGPT, so why are they talking like I can? Is this indicating that they are shifting from open models to ChatGPT with plugins? I have no clue because they don’t tell us anything!
These updates come as a constant surprise (good surprises, just frustrating because it’s now been multiple times I’m working on improving something, for it to become wasted time as there’s no roadmaps or slight indications on what is being worked on).
So now I’m left completely confused, and as a small developer I am lost in resources, time, and direction. I have no idea how I am supposed to adjust for this update. Should I continue with my version of plugins? Or should I wait for them to become available to other models? Is ChatGPT going be the focused unit for commercialization? It’s a huge shame because it seems like big companies know these answers, and small devs are left wondering.
It’s still an amazing step forward, and I completely agree that this is a huge update. Just a bit concerning. OpenAI is moving so fast, I feel like I’ve been left in a cloud of dust, just trying my best to figure out the right direction to go.
