The one-year anniversary of ChatGPT this week felt like an additional milestone due to all the turmoil we have seen at OpenAI in recent weeks. It is the right time for news publishers to broaden their horizons when it comes to their deployment of artificial intelligence…
The current state of affairs is as follows: Sam Altman is back as CEO of OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, after a power struggle. Microsoft has claimed a position on the board but officially has no vote. And there are still positions to be filled that will help determine the course of the fastest growing tech company ever. Authorities are watching the developments closely, as it is now clear that this company, among others, is changing the world.
“No publisher that I’ve spoken with is in any doubt that they need to start using this new technology and get on the AI train as fast as possible,” said Saša Vučinić, a media investor and managing partner at North Base Media in an article on INMA. “Their hesitations are limited only to how to do it safely, responsibly, and without violating anyone else’s rights.”
It is essential to critically examine the architecture of AI tools. And, for example, not to make yourself dependent on just one foundational model (such as that of OpenAI).
If you want to know what to look out for when assessing AI tools, it pays to reread the following blog about how we at smartocto bridge the gap between a foundational model and the knowledge gained from collecting data. The core lies in the fact that there is a wall between the data and the input that a foundational model has to work with.
This makes smartocto.ai not only a safe system, but also an agile one. Currently, smartocto uses Claude, but it is easy to switch to another, regardless of whatever reasons may arise in the future. Given the novelty and potential excitement of this technology, our CEO Erik van Heeswijk believes it's crucial to roll out the technique gradually and always in consultation with clients.
