Earlier this week, OpenAI held its first-ever DevDay for its suite of products. The company made some very exciting announcements including the introduction of the GPT-4 Turbo which is set to be OpenAI's most powerful AI platform yet.
With about 900 developers in attendance from around the world, OpenAI wowed the industry with several new products. The Dev Day even included a surprise visit from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Microsoft holds a major stake in OpenAI after it invested more than $10 billion in the company earlier this year.
Perhaps even more exciting than the announcement of GPT-4 Turbo was OpenAI's introduction of GPTs. What are GPTs? It is a brand-new fully customizable version of the popular LLM, ChatGPT. With GPTs, anyone can tailor ChatGPT to perform tasks that can help them in their daily life.
With GPTs, no coding is necessary. It is all customizable within the ChatGPT platform and can be shared with your friends or co-workers. GPTs truly are the first no-code version of AI that can be produced by non-developers for every aspect of our everyday lives.
Within hours of the OpenAI Dev Day wrapping up, people were hard at work creating GPTs to share with the world. Here are some of the best use cases of GPTs that have emerged so far. This list is a mix is a mix of no-code GPTs using the new GPT builder and several examples using the GPT-4 Turbo & Vision API.
1) AI Travel Assistant
One of the more impressive presentations at OpenAI's Dev Day was the AI travel assistant by Romain Huet, the Head of Developer Experience at OpenAI.
With this application, users can decide where to go, search for the top things to do at the destination, and even upload their planet tickets to integrate with the app's calendar. All of these interactions are completed in real time, allowing the AI to continue learning about your travel preferences and itinerary as you go.
2) Social Media Optimizer for Content Creators
This assistant was created by well-known social media AI influencer Rowan Cheung. Rowan created what he calls the X Optimizer GPT which he built with OpenAI's new GPT Builder platform.
What does the X Optimizer GPT do? This app takes all of Rowan's tweets from his X account and advises him of the best times to post them based on historical engagement levels. It also seems that the app can provide feedback to the user about the quality of the tweet itself. In his screenshot, Rowan's app rates the tweet an 8/10 and that he could make it a little more punchy and concise. This could be the start of full-on optimization by AI for social media posts and creating content.
3) Create a Spotify Playlist Based on Your Web Browsing
If you had to read that twice, you aren't alone. This GPT advises ChatGPT to create a song list based on your specific instructions. In the example, the user says to build a Spotify playlist based on this year's Coachella lineup.
In less than 30 seconds, ChatGPT was able to search and find the Coachella lineup and create a playlist with songs from the major artists. ChatGPT even provided a link directly within the conversation that opened Spotify's app and led the user directly to the playlist that had just been created.
4) Narrate a Sports Video
This video was making the rounds on social media immediately following the Dev Day conference. In this presentation, the user can use ChatGPT to add narration to the sports video. Users can add this play-by-play narration in any style they choose and ChatGPT will do so using the ChatGPT Vision platform.
The creator of the video even admits that this isn't his best work but is looking forward to the potential that GPT has. It sounds AI-created, but the point of the video is how easy it was to make a full-voice narration of a video within a few minutes.
5) Chatting with ChatGPT and your Webcam
A very cool idea that launched just hours after the Dev Day event came to a close. This user, SkalskiP created a way for GPT to see what your webcam is showing. Not only can you ask ChatGPT what is currently on the screen, but it can understand different actions and characteristics as well.
One example in a subsequent video showed that SkalskiP could show his iPhone screen to the webcam and ChatGPT would be able to determine the time. Many are already heralding this technology for industries like surveillance and even potentially assisting vision-impaired people.
6) Converting Images to HTML Within Seconds
This example blew people away when it was first shown. A developer named Sawyer Hood showed a quick video creating a very low-fidelity mockup of an image of a tweet.
After he finished drawing the sketch he pushed a button called "Make Real" which instantly transformed it into fully functional HTML. The video shows just how fast this can be done with ChatGPT Vision as it allows non-developers to create HTML without writing a single line of code.
7) Using AI to Critique Your Website
We say critique but the developer behind this function calls it "Roast my Website". Marcel Pociot (@Marcelpociot) uses GPT4 Vision to analyze screenshots of your website and roasts them in a friendly yet sassy manner. This also utilizes ChatGPT's new text-to-speech API.
While it isn't the most constructive use of the technology, it does show how perceptive GPT4 Vision is of real-time imagery. It also shows a fairly complex and advanced understanding of images without providing too much in the way of text prompts.
