OpenAI CEO Sam Altman announced on Twitter that ChatGPT, the AI assistant based on the GPT-3.5 architecture for for natural language interaction with humans, had reached one million users just a few days after its launch.
The chatbot has been well-received for its high-quality, longer output and improved ability to follow instructions, surpassing the performance of previous models.
The AI assistant may cost $100K per day, or $3M per month, according to a tweet by Tom Goldstein. That's the reasoning behind it:
For such a cost, the founding company will surely think of monetizing its AI platform. The question is: how? Well, in 2019, Sam Altman, has already unveiled his plan to monetize the company; and it consists of two simple steps:
Interesting, isn’t it?
What’s interesting is that Sam Altman had no idea at the time about monetizing the platform.
Obviously, I asked the AI to find the right model to make revenue from ChatGPT. This is the answer:
There are several ways that OpenAI could potentially make revenue using its ChatGPT artificial intelligence (AI) and get a return on investment. Some possible options could include:
Ultimately, the specific revenue model that OpenAI chooses to use for its ChatGPT technology will depend on a variety of factors, including the market demand for the technology and the competition in the space. It may be helpful for the company to consider testing and evaluating different revenue models to determine which ones are most effective for generating a return on investment.
So, these answers are generic and may apply to other business types, not just ChatGPT; but it’s possible to dive deeper into each model with more specific questions and push ChatGPT to give more specific answers.
When I ask myself this question, I think of the debate between Jack Ma and Elon Musk over the future of AI and intelligent systems.
👉 Alibaba co-founder and executive chairman, Jack Ma, believes that AI will play a role in augmenting human intelligence without interfering with human
👉 Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, believes the future of AI is singularity; as it could outsmarts humans. “The computer will just get impatient if nothing else. It will be like talking to a tree,” Musk said.
Regardless of what the future holds, it is clear that AI will continue to play a significant role in many aspects of our lives, and it will be important for society to carefully consider the ethical and societal implications of this technology as it continues to advance.
