(Reuters) – OpenAI, maker of the widely popular chatbot ChatGPT, plans to launch a marketplace where developers can sell their AI models built on top of their own AI technology, the Information news site reported Tuesday, citing people with knowledge of discussions at the company.
Business customers using ChatGPT often tailor the technology to their specific use case, ranging from identifying financial fraud using online transaction data to answering questions about specific markets based on internal documents. According to the news report, makers of such models could offer them to other companies through OpenAI’s proposed marketplace.
Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, revealed the potential plans last month at a meeting with developers in London, the report said.
Such a marketplace could compete with app stores operated by some of the company’s customers and technology partners — including Salesforce and Microsoft — and help OpenAI’s technology reach a wider customer base.
OpenAI did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The information also stated that two of the company’s clients, Aquant, which creates software that manufacturers use to guide customers through device maintenance and repairs, and app maker Khan Academy, may be interested in offering their ChatGPT-powered AI. models on the OpenAI marketplace.
Since its release late last year, hundreds of companies have adopted ChatGPT to automate tasks and increase efficiency. Companies are also racing to provide their customers with new tools and capabilities based on the advanced major language models (LLMs) of the AI software.
