Lore #66: Custom GPT Store Is Live

Good morning.

This week, OpenAI finally launched the Custom GPT Store. They also added some basic memory to ChatGPT for some users. Meaning that ChatGPT will remember things you said to it in the past to improve.

As I’ve previously written, Custom GPTs could be a huge opportunity to make money and bring awareness to your business. Similar to when the iPhone app store launched.

If you’re interested in creating your own custom GPTs, we have created a studio to help develop GPTs. If you’re interested, fill out the form below.

P.S. For this issue’s cover, we’re trying a new style that better represents the techno-optimist theme of Lore. The fantastic AI art of MEGS heavily inspired the style. If you aren’t already, you should follow her.

News - Lore

Microsoft has launched Copilot Pro, a new $20 monthly subscription service that brings AI-powered features to Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for consumers.

Initially available to businesses, this service now allows individual users, including Microsoft 365 Personal or Home subscribers, to access AI capabilities such as generating PowerPoint slides from prompts, rephrasing paragraphs in Word, summarizing documents, and aiding with email composition in Outlook.

Copilot Pro also offers priority access to the latest OpenAI models, enhancements to image creation with DALL-E models, and a new Copilot GPT Builder for creating custom GPT models.

As the 2024 worldwide elections approach, OpenAI is focusing on three key initiatives: preventing abuse, ensuring transparency of AI-generated content, and improving access to authoritative voting information.

To prevent misuse, such as the creation of misleading deepfakes or chatbots impersonating candidates, OpenAI is refining its safety tools and usage policies, including red teaming new systems and building safety mitigations. For transparency, they are working on provenance efforts, like implementing digital credentials for images created by DALL·E 3 and developing a provenance classifier to detect DALL·E-generated images.

Additionally, ChatGPT is integrating real-time news reporting to provide balanced information. In the US, OpenAI collaborates with the National Association of Secretaries of State to direct users to reliable voting information on CanIVote.org and plans to extend these efforts globally.
