Two months after its debut, OpenAI’s popular chatbot reportedly drew in 100 million monthly active users in January, according to a UBS study published on Wednesday. With such rapid expansion, it has become the most successful app of its kind.
The report found that on average there were 13 million daily visitors to ChatGPT in the month of January. There were two times as many people using the service in January as there were in December.
UBS analysts stated in a note that “In 20 years following the internet space, we cannot recall a faster ramp in a consumer internet app.”
Sensor Tower reports that it only took nine months for TikTok to reach 100 million users following its global launch, while Instagram needed about two and a half years.
With the help of ChatGPT’s prompts, you can compose anything from humorous verse to informative articles. Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O)-backed startup OpenAI released it for free to the public at the end of November.
OpenAI announced on Thursday that its subscription price for American customers would be set at $20 per month. The company promised to improve the service’s speed and reliability and provide early access to new additions.
Analysts believe that OpenAI’s first-to-market status in the artificial intelligence industry thanks to the success of ChatGPT will give the company a competitive advantage. The increasing number of users has resulted in increased computing costs for OpenAI, but it has also provided valuable feedback that has been used to fine-tune the chatbot’s responses.
The corporation claimed that subscription fees would be used to balance the cost of maintaining the computers.
Questions have been raised about the potential benefits of this tool in combating academic dishonesty and the dissemination of disinformation.
A month ago, Microsoft declared that it would be providing OpenAI with additional funding and cloud computing resources worth billions of dollars.
