Personalized AI assistants are conquering the consumer AI space, but what do they mean for businesses?
Published on January 15th, 2024
Back in November, OpenAI pushed the bounds of the AI landscape with the launch of shareable, customizable versions of ChatGPT — aptly called GPTs by OpenAI. Tailored for individual user needs, OpenAI is now making GPTs more accessible through their newly launched GPT Store, marking a pivotal moment in the evolution of generative AI tools towards greater adaptability and user-friendliness. In this article, we will explore everything you need to know about GPTs, the GPT Store, and how they apply to your business.
With GPTs, creators can tailor custom AI assistants to specific use cases by providing specialized instructions and a unique knowledge base for information retrieval. These personalized AIs can make use of various external tools through third-party APIs, enhancing their capabilities beyond ChatGPT’s base features, such as browsing, data analytics, and image generation through DALL·E.
The GPT Store, their newly launched app store for AI assistants, allows users to share their custom GPTs publicly to a global audience. With it, Open AI also introduces a revenue-sharing model for GPT creators, currently only available in the United States, encouraging the development of more specialized and diverse GPTs.
A fundamental technology driving GPTs’ knowledge retrieval feature is retrieval augmented generation (RAG). RAG streamlines searches and interactions with internal documents contained in a knowledge base, allowing users to intuitively and effortlessly ask questions and gain insights into large amounts of documents. This advanced AI workflow is becoming a valuable asset for businesses seeking to improve their internal processes and knowledge management.

Despite their advantages, GPTs present certain risks for businesses that cannot be ignored as part of your AI strategy. These include:
At Omnifact, we are crafting a solution that combines the advantages of custom generative AI assistants with rigorous privacy and security. This new feature will introduce purpose-built AI workspaces within your organization. These spaces enable you to easily create customized AI assistants that have access to a secure and private knowledge base, providing a ready-to-use RAG experience on your business’ confidential and internal documents. Tailored to business’ needs, Omnifact Spaces will enable countless corporate AI use-cases, including specialized AI assistants for employee handbooks and company guidelines, internal documentation, and governing laws & regulations.
Custom AI assistants like OpenAI's GPTs offer immense potential, but their privacy and security risks limit their business viability. Omnifact Spaces focuses on creating secure, privacy-aware AI workspaces and AI assistants. Our mission is to not only offer the benefits of generative AI but to do so without compromising data security and privacy, catering to the critical needs of forward-thinking businesses.
OpenAI’s GPTs and the GPT Store are a remarkable step into the right direction for generative AI, but with more specialized and business-centric solutions on the horizon, the AI landscape continues to reinvent itself. Get started today with Omnifact and skip the waitlist once Spaces is available.
