OpenAI is working on new plugins and integrations with various services, for further expand the application potential of ChatGPT. Users will now be able to interact with the AI as they perform various tasks on their browser.
What are the ChatGPT plugins for?
In a video posted on their social channels Greg Brockman, co-founder of OpenAI, practically demonstrated the new potential. In the short clip (found below) a user uses the chatbot for a recipe and, automatically, ChatGPT retrieves the various ingredients on the web and places them in an Instacart cart. In this way the user can proceed quickly with the purchase.
We’ve added initial support for ChatGPT plugins — a protocol for developers to build tools for ChatGPT, with safety as a core design principle. Deploying iteratively (starting with a small number of users & developers) to learn from contact with reality: https://t.co/ySek2oevod pic.twitter.com/S61MTpddOV

Not only that, by integrating the various plugins into ChatGPT, the user can automate a series of functions depending on the chosen integration. Some of the 11 plugins announced include services like Expedia, OpenTable, Kayak, Klarna Shopping, and Zapier. The Browsing plugin, on the other hand, allows the chatbot to interact automatically with the APIs of third-party services.
Therefore, it seems increasingly clear that artificial intelligence will revolutionize our daily use of the web. Not only that: in the United States there is debate on the regulation of AI in the field of film scripts, while ChatGPT has already been used to create musical works.
