PLUS: this new API is actually insane

Welcome, humans.

The past two days have been absolutely nuts – think Trader Joe's ultimate trail mix level of nuts. We're in the thick of an AI revolution that's unfolding at an unseen speed. Here’s our promise: we'll keep you at the forefront of AI, FULL STOP.

Here’s what you need to know about AI today:

  • ChatGPT-4’s cutoff knowledge is now April 2023.

  • OpenAI’s Assistants API lets devs build basic AI agents.

  • Meta is banning the usage of AI for political ads.

  • Aleph Alpha, a German version of OpenAI, raised $500M.

TLDR: You Should Probably Just Be Using ChatGPT.

ChatGPT was released less than 365 days ago.

A lot has happened since then: thousands of new products launched, and just yesterday, OpenAI announced a whole smorgasbord of upgrades to its models.

(Here’s a peek at some innovative applications already in the making).

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, the new news makes it simple: ChatGPT should be your go-to tool for almost everything.

It’s by far the best AI assistant today, and the “new ChatGPT” from Monday makes it wayyy better than before:

  • Knowledge up to April 2023 (vs. Sept 2021).

  • Takes up to 300 pages of text in a single prompt (used to have to use Claude to do that)

  • Every feature in one (no confusing switching between Advanced Data Analysis/DALL-E 3/web browsing).

  • Faster than before (even GPT-4, which used to feel quite sluggish!)

*your weekly reminder to upgrade to ChatGPT Plus*

And once you use it to create images, interpret images you uploaded or analyze data - you’ll see there’s nothing better out there on the market right now.

Developers can integrate all of these features into their own products with APIs, and companies can access these features with enhanced security using ChatGPT Enterprise.

We have no allegiances to OpenAI btw…but real recognize real!


Turn $19,000 into $110,000,000? It happened in this market.

Mm-hmm, sure. So, what’s the catch? 

We know it may sound too good to be true. But that's exactly what happened when a New York City man purchased a Basquiat painting in 1983 and flipped it for a 5,798x return on investment in 2017. 

It sounds unlikely, but contemporary art prices have quietly outpaced the S&P 500 by 136% over the last 27 years. Now, everyday investors are unlocking access to the very same market thanks to the blue-chip art investing platform Masterworks. 

Masterworks’ nearly $1 billion collection includes works by greats like Basquiat, Banksy, and Picasso, all of which are collectively owned by everyday investors. When Masterworks sells a painting – like the 16 it's already sold – investors reap their portion of the profits.

This API Lets You Build Custom AI Assistants.

Yesterday we chatted about how developers can use OpenAI’s APIs like they’re Lego blocks.

At DevDay, Sam Altman unveiled this super-duper powerful API called Assistants API.

It drastically simplifies the process of building AI apps. Like going from home cooking to getting meals delivered to your door.

The cool thing about this API is its ability to retain the context of conversations and retrieve info from documents with the agility of a Chihuahua snagging a tennis ball.

Definitely check out this demo if you’re a company building with AI.

1s and 0s.

“Numbers speak louder than words” — some philosopher (probably).

  • 10 minutes: the time it took for two devs to build a “talk to any YouTube video” GPT App.

  • 98%: accuracy of OpenAI’s latest retrieval functionality, up from 45% (think way less hallucinations).
