Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the company behind the artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT, has shared his personal experience of using the AI tool. In a recent Forbes interview, Altman stated that summarization has been a game-changer for him, much more than he expected it to be. The CEO finds ChatGPT’s ability to summarize full articles or long email threads as a massive time-saver.
Beyond Search: A New Era of AI
Altman, however, downplayed the ability of ChatGPT to replace traditional search engines. He sees the potential of AI to go way beyond search and is more interested in exploring what the future holds. He also noted that ChatGPT is useful to him in coding, where the tool acts as a super brilliant programmer that he can talk to and get help with debugging code.
ChatGPT Goes Premium
OpenAI recently launched a premium version of ChatGPT, priced at $42 per month. The premium version offers faster response speed, priority access to new features, and the ability to use ChatGPT even during high demand times. Despite the occasional service disruptions, ChatGPT continues to attract a huge user base, reaching 100 million monthly active users faster than TikTok or Instagram.
A Sign of Great Product-Market Fit
ChatGPT’s popularity and success are a testament to the “great product-market fit,” according to angel investor Elad Gil. People keep coming back to ChatGPT, and the AI tool has become a crucial tool for many users worldwide, from professors to advertisers, hackers, and judges. The future of AI is exciting, and ChatGPT is leading the way.
