The one tool that has caused huge havoc in the EdTech industry, ChatGPT, is a familiar noun now. But there is another term we often hear alongside ChatGPT. No, we are not talking about an alternative to ChatGPT. We are talking about OpenAI.
Many people believe OpenAI to be another AI tool that works on a similar ground to ChatGPT. But this is not the truth. OpenAI is the company that brought the amazing and similarly outstanding ChatGPT to the world. So, let’s discuss what role both ChatGPT and OpenAI play and how they differ from each other.
What exactly is OpenAI?
A research laboratory situated in the United States of America, OpenAI is a capped-profit organization that excels in everything AI. The main purpose behind the establishment of this previous non-profit organization is creating solutions for human beings using the superior technology that is artificial intelligence.
OpenAI was founded on the 11th of December 2015 by well-known names in the tech sector. Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, as well as the CTO of Twitter, Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn co-founder and the CEO of OpenAI Sam Altman, made up the initial board members of this organization.
Difference Between OpenAI & ChatGPT
Before ChatGPT, OpenAI came out with a bunch of AI tools that excel in performing one task or more. Dall E was one of the popular platforms launched by OpenAI that showed the world the superiority of artificial intelligence. OpenAI was named as such because it was created as a counterweight to Google, which had and still has an extreme presence in the internet market.
Then, ChatGPT came out as a trial tool using the language model GPT4 of OpenAI to provide humans with life-like assistance for daily tasks. Today, ChatGPT has a new version launcher whose subscriber option gives even more features for users to explore. So, whether you need advice for the best restaurant to take your date in or want to prepare an appropriate email for any official tasks, OpenAI’s ChatGPT is there seconds away for your help.
