It’s been almost a year since the arrival of ChatGPT, which marked a turning point in the way users interact with the tools available on the web. OpenAI, the company that owns ChatGPT, is now holding its first developer conference, where among other things, it has just announced the arrival of a platform that will allow the creation of customized versions of ChatGPT, called GPT, for specific uses, both personal and professional, and best of all, without the need for coding.
The Evolution of ChatGPT
GPTs from private use to public access
The company says that users can create GPTs for private use, for internal use in a company or for public use, where it will be enough to start a conversation, establish instructions and additional knowledge and indications of what to do, giving as examples the ability to search the web, create images or perform data analysis.
Users can create their own GPTs as of today by simply starting at chatgpt.com/create. The idea is that GPTs will be created by the user community itself over time to meet different types of needs and can be shared publicly.
GPTs are a new way for anyone to create a tailored version of ChatGPT to be more helpful in their daily life, at specific tasks, at work, or at home — and then share that creation with others. No code required. https://t.co/SPV4TcMiQw pic.twitter.com/PcmorZwtMF

Access to the GPTs of examples already created will be available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise subscribers, although over time their availability will be extended to more users.
GPT Store: A Marketplace for Custom GPTs
By the end of November, the GPT Store will offer creations by verified creators, where users will find GPTs through a leaderboard, but also the most outstanding ones through a series of categories. In a few months, creators will also be able to earn money with their GPTs.
Ensuring Creator Compensation
It could not fail to compensate creators for their work. In this sense, OpenAI also points out that in the coming months creators will be able to earn money based on the use made of their GPTs, although for the moment the company has not offered more information regarding income, where details will most likely be provided in due course.
Privacy and Security in Focus
As far as privacy is concerned, OpenAI points out that users have nothing to worry about, as they will always be in control of their data and it will never be offered to the creators of GPTs.
They add: “If a GPT uses third-party APIs, you choose whether data can be sent to that API. When builders customize their own GPT with actions or insights, the builder can choose whether user chats with that GPT can be used to improve and train our models.”
On the security level, OpenAI has ensured that its new platform will not be used for the creation of harmful GPTs with mitigation mechanisms in place, which will be increased over time.
GPTs for Real-World Tasks
Over time, GPTs will be able to come to “perform real tasks in the real world”, with developers having possibilities for this both through built-in capabilities and also through custom actions using one or more APIs. They add: “Connect GPT to databases, connect them to emails or turn them into your shopping assistant. For example, you could integrate a travel listing database, connect a user’s email inbox or facilitate e-commerce orders.”
OpenAI is leading the way in democratizing AI technology with the introduction of customized GPTs, offering endless possibilities for personal and professional use. With privacy and security at the forefront, it’s a promising step towards harnessing the power of AI for real-world tasks.
How can I create my own GPT?
You can create your own GPT by visiting chatgpt.com/create, and it’s as easy as starting a conversation.
Can I monetize my custom GPT?
Yes, in the coming months, creators will have the opportunity to earn money based on the use of their GPTs.
Is my data safe when using GPTs?
OpenAI ensures that your data is safe, and you have control over it. Your data will never be shared with GPT creators.
What kind of tasks can GPTs perform in the real world?
GPTs are versatile and can perform various tasks, from database integration to email management and more.
When will the GPT Store be available to all users?
While it’s initially available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise subscribers, OpenAI plans to extend its availability to more users in the future.
