OpenAI Unveils GPTBot’s incredible Web crawling abilities and prepares for the new GPT-5 model.
According to the official docs, GPTBot will filter out irrelevant stuff, create a pathway for future models, and also allow personally identifiable information (PII) to websites.
Equipped with awe-inspiring web crawling capabilities, GPTBot sets the stage for revolutionary possibilities in information gathering.
OpenAI aims to empower ChatGPT users with the ability to harness this remarkable tool by simply adding a game-changing “disallow ” command to a standard server file.
Additionally, OpenAI made a suggestion that future plans might involve creating the eagerly awaited GPT-5 model. Before GPTBot was made public, the AI company registered the trademark “GPT-5.” Discussions on the GPT series’ upcoming phase have been sparked by this action.
Criticism of OpenAI’s Data Collection
There has been opposition to and controversy about OpenAI’s data harvesting initiatives.
Many complaints concerning alleged copyright violations and problems with user consent surround the internet.
OpenAI has received a warning from Japan’s privacy watchdog regarding gathering private information without the required authorization, while Italy has temporarily barred ChatGPT use owing to alleged infringements of European Union privacy regulations.
Despite these difficulties, OpenAI has had great success with ChatGPT, which has 1.5 billion users on a monthly basis.
The company’s achievements are further supported by Microsoft’s investment in it. However, the launch of GPTBot represents a turning point in OpenAI’s progress towards GPT-5.
Sam Altman, the company’s founder and CEO, has emphasized the value of thorough safety evaluations before starting the GPT-5 training process.
