OpenAI Could Launch a Marketplace for AI Developers

The marketplace would allow developers to sell AI models based on ChatGPT to businesses around the world.

Implementing AI technology into your business could get a lot easier soon, as OpenAI — the company behind ChatGPT — is reportedly working on a marketplace that could open up a lot of possibilities in the future.

Since its launch in November last year, businesses have flocked to ChatGPT like a modern-day gold rush. The technology is capable of a lot, from emails and coding to customer service requests and sales assistance.

Still, ChatGPT has only scratched the surface of what generative AI can do for business, and this marketplace could be the catalyst to a wide range of new functionalities.

AI Marketplace Coming to OpenAI

According to a report from The Information, OpenAI is considering the development of a marketplace that would allow users to sell models built using the company's ChatGPT generative AI service to other businesses.

The report also notes that this idea is already gaining some traction with ChatGPT users. In fact, Aquant — a popular service platform — and Khan Academy — an education app maker — were two companies that specified that they would be interested in selling their ChatGPT-powered AI models on the new marketplace.

While the news is not entirely public, the report cites people familiar with the topic, stating that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman talked about these potential plans in a developer meeting in London last month.

What Does This Mean for ChatGPT?

ChatGPT, by itself, can't power a business. However, in most cases, businesse are using ChatGPT as a foundation, creating AI models based on the popular service to specifically cater its functionality to that business.

The marketplace that OpenAI is considering building could make that functionality available to everyone, building out an entire economy around AI-powered platforms that can help businesses grow.

In essence, this new AI marketplace could establish ChatGPT even more as the go-to generative AI solution for businesses around the world. Yes, Google Bard has made some headway and likely has an easier road to catch up than other competitors due to the sheer volume of information available to Google.

Still, being the first to launch is always valuable. If, on top of that, OpenAI can use this marketplace to roll out untold numbers of iterations, doing everything from answer emails and writing code to responding to customer service requests and qualifying sales leads, it will make it the primary tool across the board, particularly when paired with Microsoft's suite of business offerings.
