In preparation for this event and potentially more to follow, OpenAI has been actively recruiting for an events team since January. They aim to enhance their capability to organize in-house events effectively.

Jimmy Apples mentioned that in January, there were advertisements for hiring in-house events staff and events marketing positions. He also noted that they recently hired an events manager last month.

Jimmy hinted at a significant event happening in June, suggesting that OpenAI might unveil its next model during that time, whatever Sam decides to name it.

OpenAI has been busy lately, with Jimmy Apples noting a surge in new async subdomains since April 24th.

There’s a rumor that OpenAI might release its Google Search alternative before Google I/O, which is set for May 14, 2024. This could make Perplexity AI unnecessary.

Microsoft has banned its employees from using Perplexity AI due to security worries.

According to this report also, OpenAI is developing a new web search tool to compete with Google. This search tool will use technology from Bing, a search engine owned by Microsoft.

Sam Altman, the head of OpenAI, mentioned in a podcast that combining language models with search hasn’t been fully figured out yet, but he’s excited about the idea. Altman believes this combination could lead to something innovative and beneficial.

Sam Altman expressed that the company isn’t interested in creating another Google Search. He finds the idea of replicating Google Search uninteresting.

Altman pointed out that Google Search typically displays 10 blue links, followed by ads, and then more blue links. He believes this method is limited in helping people find information.

Instead of competing directly with Google, Altman is excited about the possibility of discovering new and improved ways to assist people in finding, utilizing, and combining information effectively.

OpenAI decided to create a search app. This decision came after Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, said a year ago that he wanted to improve Bing by using OpenAI’s GPT models.
