ChatGPT has been released and has quickly taken over the world! Here are my Top 6 Predictions about where ChatGPT could be heading in the new year. New Pricing Model It goes without saying, it’s probably a matter of time until OpenAI announces a pricing model for ChatGPT. In the past, I felt DALL-E was too expensive and I wasn’t a fan of the pricing model either. However, besides some minor gripes, I think GPT-3 pricing from the beginning has been reasonable and OpenAI continues to reduce the costs which is nice. In this regard, I’m optimistic about potential ChatGPT pricing as well. It may have a friendly consumer-oriented plan like $10-$20 a month, rather than an API (per request) centered pricing model. It’s unclear if OpenAI will offer ChatGPT in the future as an API for developers.
All of these seem quite on target. My guess is that they will feature both monthly pricing, for a consumer interface, and usage based pricing for an API. The one other item I would suggest is the anticipated release of a new foundation model that would underpin both services. Unclear at this time how different a GPT-4 will be from 3.5.
The web-browsing is the most interesting of these to me. I actually think the first company to do that may be someone other than OpenAI (maybe someone like Adept) -- that's more focused on giving language models the ability to act.
This gives people such amazing data, teach the model how to navigate the web. Oh, and thanks for not rambling too long on predictions. They're uncertain, no need to make us read 500 words each.
