OpenAI now also wants to make money: The text generator ChatGPT from the US start-up gets a subscription business model.

For 20 dollars a month, paying customers should have reliable access to the AI ​​software (artificial intelligence) and faster results even at high workloads.

Another advantage is early access to future new features and improvements, as OpenAI announced in a blog post.

The large rush of users in recent weeks is currently often overloading the system.

Customers of "ChatGPT Plus" should have no problems with it.

The subscription model will initially only be available in the USA, but will be introduced in other countries "soon".

ChatGPT emphasized that free access to the software will continue to be possible.

The subscription income should finance it for as many users as possible.

OpenAI also recently struck a multi-billion dollar deal with Microsoft.

Among other things, the group makes its cloud and supercomputer available for operation.

In return, Microsoft wants to integrate OpenAI's AI into its own products.

It starts with the video conferencing software Teams, whose paid premium version is now gradually being expanded with functions based on ChatGPT.

According to Microsoft's announcement, this includes, among other things, AI-generated summaries of meetings and matching tasks formulated by the AI ​​for the participants or anyone who missed the meeting.

This should become visible “in the coming months”.

According to »Semafor«, the next major language model of OpenAI, GPT-4, is to become part of Microsoft's search engine Bing in the coming weeks.

GPT-4 will be the successor to the GPT-3 model presented in 2020, the GPT-3.5 version of which in turn forms the basis of ChatGPT.

Most Germans see AI technology positively

Every fourth person in Germany who uses the internet at least occasionally is now familiar with language software with artificial intelligence (AI) or even uses it.

This was the result of a representative survey by the Bochum research facility CAIS (Center for Advanced Internet Studies) published on Thursday.

Only three percent of respondents to the “Artificial Intelligence Opinion Monitor” said that they use ChatGPT regularly.

At least eight percent have already tried the chatbot.

17 percent have at least heard of it.

Overall, according to the survey, the majority of people in Germany have a positive attitude towards ChatGPT.

More than half of respondents say they are impressed with the technology.

However, almost 50 percent of those surveyed are also worried about possible effects on the workplace or people being displaced by machines.
