Company & Products
OpenAI specializes in the development of artificial intelligence technologies with the potential to exceed human capabilities. Their machine-learning algorithms are applied to solve various tasks, including natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, and more.

ChatGPT, the most advanced language model globally, has earned the moniker "Google Killer" due to its remarkable ability to respond to search queries using content sourced from various origins.

The platform has set a historic pace of audience expansion, reaching an impressive milestone of 100 million monthly users just two months after its launch. In contrast, TikTok and Instagram took 9 months and 2.5 years, respectively, to achieve the same level of user base.

ChatGPT offers versatility, serving purposes such as text generation, search query responses, facilitating business conversations, coding, and more.

In the foreseeable future, this artificial intelligence model holds the potential to replace certain professionals in the job market, including copywriters, customer service representatives, and even programmers. Furthermore, ChatGPT can be seamlessly integrated into numerous information services, thereby enhancing their overall effectiveness.

Microsoft, the primary investor and partner of OpenAI, has intentions to seamlessly integrate ChatGPT into their core products, which include the Office suite and the Bing search engine.
OpenAI API offers convenient access for third-party developers to OpenAI's models through a user-friendly interface.

DALL-E is a model specifically created to produce highquality images in response to textual descriptions. For example, if a user inputs a request like "a living room with two white armchairs and a painting of the Colosseum above the fireplace," the model will generate an image that matches this description. To train this model, a vast dataset of 12 billion illustrations was used.

Financial metrics
The company anticipates generating $1 billion in revenue in 2024, with an expected $200 million in 2023. As reported by Fortune magazine, their revenue for 2022 was $35 million.

OpenAI's principal income source is set to be the ChatGPT language model. They recently launched a paid version of the service called ChatGPT Plus, priced at $20 per month, offering subscribers various advantages, including peaktime access, quicker response times, and prioritized access to new features.

Presently, OpenAI's revenue primarily comes from the sales of the OpenAI API and tokens that can be utilized for tasks like converting text into images using the DALL-E model.

Co-founder and Investor
OpenAI is among the leading companies in the artificial + intelligence development domain. In just the initial days following its launch, its service, ChatGPT, rapidly gained popularity and garnered widespread recognition. Many prominent media outlets featured the service, and influential figures in the scientific and business sectors hailed it as a "game-changer."

OpenAI's mission is centered on developing "ethically responsible" artificial intelligence that outperforms human capabilities in economically vital tasks.
Early in the year, reports emerged in the media about a fresh round of funding for OpenAI. Microsoft injected more than $10 billion into the company, causing its valuation to double, reaching $29 billion and positioning OpenAI as one of the most highly valued private companies in the United States.
Microsoft plays a crucial role as an investor and collaborator with OpenAI. Back in 2019, Microsoft had already committed $1 billion in funding to leverage OpenAI's developments in their product ecosystem.

In return, OpenAI benefits from its partnership with Microsoft by gaining access to their data processing facilities. This access is of significant importance, given that a substantial portion of the company's expenditures is related to cloud computing resources.
ChatGPT, the primary product of OpenAI, is the frontrunner among language models. Notably, even industry giants such as Meta, which unveiled BlenderBot 5 in August 2022, and Google with LaMDA, have not managed to outperform it thus far.

As we look ahead, competition in this arena is projected to grow, but OpenAI's prominent standing and robust backing from Microsoft will enable the company to retain its leading position.
