OpenAI announced that they are launching ChatGPT Plugins. This isa significant and a smart move by OpenAI because as powerful as ChatGPT is, it is still limited by the way it learns. It is limited to the training data, but these plugins, which sit right in between ChatGPT and other databases with a lot of information in them, kind of acts as a funnel that can inject this information into ChatGPT. Therefore, it can give meaningful output to people that are asking questions. So it really changes a lot of dynamics in the AI industry. For example: Expedia is now part of this testing which has a lot of information about the travel industry, locations, Klarna shopping, which has a lot of information about online prices of products , all of these are part of this testing. So they will inject all this information in to ChatGPT, opening up new possibilities and use cases.
