OpenAI has announced that it will be hosting its first developer conference
on November 6 in San Francisco. It will bring together developers from around the world to preview new tools and discuss and share ideas.
OpenAI’s team will showcase updates to OpenAI core products such as GPT-3.5, GPT-4, DALL·E, and Whisper. However, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has already confirmed on X (previously Twitter) that there will be “no gpt-5 or 4.5 or anything like that.”
The conference will be open to both in-person and virtual attendance, with a live stream available for those not able to be on site. According to the site, “in-person attendees will also be able to join breakout sessions led by members of OpenAI’s technical staff.” Details for the list of speakers and itinerary aren’t available yet.
Registration is set to open in the next couple of weeks and those interested can sign up to get notifications on the registration process as soon as it is available. Without giving specific figures, OpenAI is hoping to bring together hundreds of developers and have said on its DevDay dedicated page
that it will limit in-person attendance.
OpenAI has more than 2 million developers building on top of its APIs, “from integrating smart assistants into existing applications to building entirely new applications and services that weren’t possible before.” Some of these updates include integrating ChatGPT and Whisper models
into apps to upgrading API models and function calling capabilities.
This conference is a great way to engage in the developer community and ensure OpenAI maintains its leading position in the continued growth of GenAI capabilities and applications. OpenAI’s mission is to engage in research and deployment of AI in a way that benefits all of humanity.
To further support this mission, OpenAI has recently created a team
to ensure that AI systems align with human ethical concepts and grow and behave in a way that is aligned with societal standards with positive impact on humanity.
