OpenAI is gearing up to announce a premium version of its popular language generator tool ChatGPT3. Google is reportedly scrambling to break the market first, meaning this type of AI may be on the cusp of an early commercial explosion.
Artificial intelligence is already hot property, but companies are vying to have their signature stamps all over the biggest projects of 2023.
The same company that developed the gorgeous headline image above, OpenAI, has largely led the way for commercial AI in recent times, certainly in a recreational sense.
ChatGPT has crossed 1M+ users in just 5 days.
To compare, it took Netflix 41 months, FB – 10 months, and Instagram – 2.5 months.
But many haven’t yet realized its full potential.
Here are the 10 mindblowing things you can do using it right now:

The ability to create unique visual and literary works in a near instant is one that’s grabbed the public and the novelty isn’t waring off. We’ve seen AI art take first prize at the Colorado State Fair, and ChatGPT3 banned from several educational institutions throughout the US in a mere matter of months.
Suffice to say, if you hadn’t gathered, this technology is eerily good at whatever use it’s put to. The notion that only humans can pull of creative works convincingly has been rubbished, which admittedly is a concern to all my content writing brethren.
Though I’m being a little facetious, commercial AI will undoubtedly be hugely profitable and OpenAI wishes to be industry leaders.
OpenAI rolls out ‘ChatGPT Professional’
Touted as a potential ‘money printing machine’ for Open AI, the company is reportedly set to roll out its premium edition for its popular chatbot, dubbed ChatGPT Professional.
Social media fintech guru Linas Belinuas posted on Sunday revealing that the paid service is about to go live, and a select waiting list has already appeared on the company’s Discord server.
‘That was quick! OpenAI has reportedly started rolling out a premium version of its viral ChatGPT,’ explained Belinuas.
‘While [the] free version is still available, for $42/month, you will get expanded capabilities like less finicky availability, faster response speeds, and priority access to new features,’ he added.
If we do the math quickly, 10% of the ChatGPT3’s users opting in for the subscription would generate around $3.5bn of revenue in the very first year. As we know, the tech market can be fleeting, but there appears to be huge (and sustained) potential for all things AI.
In-fact, as soon as the announcement appeared on LinkedIn, industry murmurings suggest Google frantically declared ‘code red’ and is now strategising to displace OpenAI as the market’s lead innovators.
