The official ChatGPI API was released last week.
And most interestingly – Open AI has been vocal about this new API being suitable for a lot more than just chat.
Here’s what we learned:
The new API “formalizes” how to prompt ChatGPT. It asks for a System Prompt, a User Prompt and ChatGPT’s response, as an Assistant message.
This reinforces that if you’re a power user of ChatGPT and frequently using the role-playing technique, “Act as an expert XYZ”, then you are on the right track.
The ChatGPT API is not just for chat bots. 60% of teams built on top of it for a variety of other use cases from data analytics and news summarization to games and marketing content creation. One team even created a version of Jackbox Games, but with ChatGPT.
In the chat category, we are seeing a few common themes emerge:
- Chat act as a new way to interact with data – your own, your company’s, and even public data like Twitter
- Chat as a new way to learn – quizzes, explanations, translations, etc
- Chat as a new way to delegate – ordering food for you, making a playlist
- Chat as a new friend – especially when combined with a “persona” like a childrens toy, fitness coach, etc.
