OpenAI plans app store for AI models

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman discussed an online market when he met with developers last month

According to the news website The Information, Microsoft-backed OpenAI is considering launching an exclusive online marketplace for artificial intelligence (AI) models and software.

The Sam Altman-led startup is thinking of opening an app store where users might “sell AI models they customise for their own needs to other businesses.”

According to reports, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman discussed an online market when he met with developers last month. But according to a report featured by the company spokesman, OpenAI is not making “active efforts” to develop the industry.

With support from Microsoft and other investors, OpenAI recently established a $175 million investment fund aimed at boosting other AI firms.

The OpenAI Startup ‘Fund I’ is 75% bigger than the original budget and is larger than originally anticipated.

According to a US SEC filing, the firm, run by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and COO Brad Lightcap, received funding from 14 investors.

For a while now, OpenAI has been funding AI businesses.

Sam Altman stated that he is prepared to invest in domestic companies during his earlier this month visit to India.

According to Sam Altman, the organisation that created ChatGPT is not currently training GPT5, the replacement for GPT4.

“We’re working on the new ideas that we think we need for it, but we are nowhere close to the start. There need to be more safety audits: I wish I could tell you about the timeline of the next GPT,” he said.

Sam Altman’s remarks come as AI researchers and high-level technology executives grew increasingly concerned about the frightening rate at which generative AI technology is developing.
