OpenAI's ChatGPT has been making waves in the AI community, and the recent updates have only added to its growing reputation. Here's a breakdown of the latest developments.

Blocking OpenAI's Web Crawler with a Single Line of Code

  • OpenAI introduced a new web crawler named GPTBot designed to browse the internet and gather data.  Website administrators can now add just one line of code to their sites to prevent OpenAI from accessing their data for training ChatGPT.

  • The company has clarified that GPTBot will not access sources that require paywall access, collect personal information, or contain content that violates company policies.
    • This move comes after OpenAI faced scrutiny for not specifying the data sources it used to train GPT-4.
    • Some experts believe this disclosure is more about appeasing large rights holders, such as media outlets and stock photo libraries, rather than individual privacy concerns.
    • OpenAI's data collection methods have previously led to disputes with authors and artists.

Six New Features in ChatGPT's August 2023 Update

  1. File Uploads: Users can now upload multiple files simultaneously, a feature previously limited to the Code Interpreter Beta.
  2. Suggested Prompts: To make starting a chat session less daunting, OpenAI has introduced suggested prompts.
  3. Suggested Replies: This new feature offers relevant options for follow-up discussions, enhancing user engagement.
  4. Performance Upgrade: OpenAI's GPT has reached the performance level of GPT-4, with a restriction of 50 messages every three hours.
  5. Conversation Flow: ChatGPT now remembers more of the conversation, improving the back-and-forth user experience.
  6. Redesigned Interface: Users can now stay logged in for longer durations, and new keyboard shortcuts have been introduced for increased productivity.
