First GPTs Developed Overnight

Yesterday’s (6th November 2023) announcement from OpenAI has taken the concept of adaptability to new heights. GPTs, custom versions of the versatile ChatGPT, promise to streamline business operations and personal tasks alike, empowering anyone to tailor this advanced AI to meet their unique needs without writing a single line of code. This article is a short review of the First GPTs Developed Overnight.

Imagine logging into your computer and being greeted by an AI that doesn’t just respond to your queries but anticipates your needs based on its customization and acts as your agent to complete specific tasks. For business leaders, this innovation is more than a convenience—it’s a game-changer that could easily lead to a huge jump in productivity

Very early adopters are already showcasing impressive applications even though the tools have been available for less than 24 hours. Two remarkable demonstrations involve individuals connecting their webcams to a GPT that can interpret visual data in real-time, narrating what is sees. This is not merely a technological parlor trick; it has profound implications for accessibility, remote surveillance, and real-time data analysis.

You’ll be able to interact with your computer by nodding your head.

“Shall I reply to this meeting invite saying you’ll go?”

Another compelling use case is in digital marketing and landing page optimisation. By inputting a website’s URL, a specialized GPT can now critique the site’s design and user experience, offering constructive feedback to optimize digital presence. This immediate, AI-driven website review can dramatically shorten the feedback loop, enabling businesses to iterate rapidly and stay ahead in the competitive digital space. Roasting your landing page, to use some internet jargon, will be a service available to all, probably for nothing.

These examples are merely scratching the surface. The potential uses of GPTs are limited only by our imagination. Educators, designers, and businesses can create tools that were previously the domain of those with deep technical expertise. Most of these tools can be developed without the need for coding skills. One implication of this will be the proliferation of new apps so app discovery, the process of finding the app you need, will become a challenge.

OpenAI‘s announcement also heralds the arrival of the GPT Store, a marketplace that promises to spotlight and reward the most innovative and helpful GPTs.

For businesses, the opportunity is clear: GPTs offer a chance to innovate, optimize, and deliver services in unprecedented ways. Managers who embrace this technology will find themselves at the forefront of a new wave of operational efficiency and customer engagement. With the first GPTs being developed overnight – literally, the rate of change has just accelerated. The two key facts are that OpenAI’s tools now make extremely complex app development very easy and they have reduced the development timescale by an order of magnitude.
