ChatGPT Turns One

OpenAI made a splash on ChatGPT's first birthday with something for everyone to be excited and wary.

Birthday cake

OpenAI made a splash this week at its first developer-focused event, announcing a wide range of new capabilities, features, and services. For a first birthday party, it was quite impressive but also awkward. OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman’s presentation had the excitement and clumsiness of the parent of a one year old—celebrating its advances with the lack of surety of a new parent. In some ways, everyone in the OpenAI universe has something to celebrate. But everyone also has something to be wary about and Sam missed the mark explaining some logical inconsistencies in OpenAI’s product announcements and plans. 

Let’s walk through four of OpenAI’s announcements that I’ve been chewing on this week.
