AI research organisation OpenAI has said it will soon monetise its ChatGPT platform, after seeing a mammoth response to its AI chatbot that can write poems, essays, emails and even codes.
The Microsoft-owned company said it is "starting to think about how to monetize ChatGPT" as a way to "ensure long-term viability."
"Working on a professional version of ChatGPT; will offer higher limits and faster performance," said Greg Brockman, President and Co-Founder, of OpenAI.
ChatGPT last reported over a million users. ChatGPT Professional will be always available (no blackout windows), with fast responses from ChatGPT (no throttling) and as many messages as you need (at least 2X regular daily limit).
"If you are selected, we'll reach out to you to set up a payment process and a pilot. Please keep in mind that this is an early experimental programme that is subject to change, and we are not making paid pro access generally available at this time," said the company.
Meanwhile, reports surfaced that Microsoft is planning to infuse $10 billion into OpenAI which will value the company at nearly $29 billion.
