How to use the GPT store 📝 🧐

In November, we reported on OpenAI’s GPTs unveiled at DevDay. GPTs are customizable versions of ChatGPT that you can tailor to do specific tasks without any coding.

A week later, we created a complete guide on how to create your own GPT. It includes how to get started, fine-tune it, test, and more.

GPTs… GPTs everywhere.

Last week, OpenAI launched the GPT store. It’s an online marketplace where you can discover and share GPTs.

What’s the point of a GPT?

You can create GPTs for personal, internal business, or public use. They can search the web, create images, analyze data, assist you in your daily life, and more.

Is the GPT store really such a big deal?

Well, over 3 million GPTs have been created since November.

Are there any noteworthy GPTs out there?

OpenAI integrated a leaderboard into the GPT store that gives you insight into what the most popular GPT are.

Currently, these are the 4 top performing GPTs:

Can you make money with GPTs?

OpenAI plans to launch a monetization program based on engagement later this year.

How do I create my own GPT?

We created a step-by-step guide to help you out with that: Check it out, here.

How do I share my GPTs in the store?

Just pick the GPT you want to share, go into its “Save” settings, then select “Everyone.” Here’s what that looks like:

Does it cost money to use the GPT store?

You have to be a ChatGPT Plus, Team, or Enterprise user to access it.

These binoculars quack me up 🦜🐥

In July, we reported on Viola the Bird. It’s Google’s animated bird that uses AI to channel user input into musical performances.

More music stuff?

No, silly. More bird stuff.

Last Monday at CES 2024, Swarovski Optik launched the AX Visio. They’re smart binoculars that identify over 9,000 species of birds and mammals.

What’s so great about them?

Swarovski Optik claims it’s the world’s first pair of AI-powered binoculars. They can capture high-quality pictures and videos which can be transferred to your smartphone.

They feature a 10 × 32 magnification and a 1,000-yard field of view. The binoculars were designed by Marc Newson.

Who’s Marc Newson?

He’s a designer who has worked with Apple, Ferrari, Nike, and more.

He was included in TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and has received many prestigious industry awards for his work.

Nice. How does the AI work?

You focus on an animal, push a button, and the name of the species appears on the screen within 5 seconds. It considers your geographic location via GPS for accurate species recognition.

How much does it cost?

They ain’t cheep. 🐣 💸


No probs, happy bird-day to me. 🦜

In that case, you can purchase in February.


Bad bot. No cookie 👹 👺 

In October, we reported on Google and Anthropic’s new partnership. Google invested a whopping $2 billion in Anthropic.

In November, we covered Anthropic’s Claude 2.1. It improved upon Claude 2 with a longer context window, more truthful responses, and more.

What did they do this time?

Last Wednesday, Anthropic published a paper on LLMs’ ability to bypass current safety protocols. It specifically looks at how Sleeper Agents behave in various applications.

What are Sleeper Agents?

AI agents that are trained to behave normally during some conditions (like safety evaluations), but can bypass current safety protocols in other situations.

They can’t just get rid of them?


Despite extensive safety training methods like reinforcement learning and adversarial training, the deceptive behaviors of LLMs persist and become even more sophisticated.

What are the main threats?

Anthropic claims they are model poisoning and deceptive instrumental alignment.

Model poisoning is when you maliciously train security vulnerabilities into models. Deceptive instrumental alignment is when models fake alignment with certain objectives, but behave differently in other situations.

How do we stop these Sleeper Agents?

Anthropic claims that current behavioral training techniques are not adequate and that we need more complex defense systems or an entirely new approach to AI safety.

I guess the Twitter page for the ChatGPT app got tired of explaining what GPT stands for.
