OpenAI has introduced a tailored version of its widely discussed ChatGPT tool aimed specifically at businesses, marking another stride in the ongoing corporate race to harness artificial intelligence (AI).
This newly launched offering, named “ChatGPT Enterprise,” was unveiled in an official company blog post and is now available for purchase to business clients.
OpenAI promises a blend of “enterprise-grade security and privacy” along with the most potent iteration of ChatGPT to date, catering to enterprises keen on embracing generative AI.
OpenAI aims to enhance work with AI assistant for businesses
The blog post emphasizes OpenAI’s belief that AI has the potential to enhance every facet of work and boost creativity and productivity within teams.
The company aspires to create a specialized AI assistant for work that can handle various tasks, is adaptable to organizational requirements, and safeguards sensitive company data.
Early adopters of ChatGPT Enterprise include entities such as Block, a fintech startup, Estee Lauder Companies, a cosmetics giant, and PwC, a professional services firm.
This announcement comes amid OpenAI’s assertion that employees from more than 80% of Fortune 500 firms have already integrated ChatGPT into their workflows since its public release last year.
Prior to the debut of ChatGPT Enterprise, several prominent companies like JPMorgan Chase had placed temporary restrictions on its usage due to privacy and security concerns.
ChatGPT Enterprise aims to address these concerns by emphasizing data privacy. Unlike its predecessors, this version assures users that it does not utilize their business data or conversations for training, and its models do not learn from their usage.
OpenAI has not publicly disclosed the pricing structure for ChatGPT Enterprise, instead urging interested businesses to reach out to its sales team.
The company plans to onboard numerous enterprises in the coming weeks and seeks to fine-tune ChatGPT Enterprise based on user feedback.
In a similar move, Microsoft introduced Bing Chat Enterprise, a business-focused variant of its AI-powered Bing tool, with comparable security assurances to those now highlighted by ChatGPT Enterprise.
Microsoft’s prior announcement of a significant investment in OpenAI adds another layer of complexity to the evolving competition between the two AI tools designed for businesses.
