OpenAI has announced that it will hold its inaugural developer conference in San Francisco on November 6. A keynote lecture and breakout sessions delivered by members of OpenAI’s technical staff will be part of the daylong OpenAI DevDay event.
During the event, the OpenAI team will be joined by hundreds of developers from around the world to showcase new tools and share ideas. “We’re looking forward to showing our latest work to enable developers to build new things,” said Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI.
DevDay will primarily take place in person, however some events, including the keynote, will be streamed live. According to OpenAI, registration will start in the upcoming weeks and attendance is anticipated to be upto “hundreds” of engineers.
OpenAI argues in the blog post that its developer community is sizable enough to justify the developer conference. The startup’s wide range of generative AI tools, such as its large language model GPT-4, AI chatbot ChatGPT, text-to-image model DALL-E 2, and automatic speech recognition model Whisper, are used by over 2 million developers.
It is unlikely that OpenAI’s upcoming flagship generative AI model, GPT-5, will be revealed. CEO Sam Altman of OpenAI said in April that the company was not currently training GPT-5 and wouldn’t for some time. But there’s a chance one will find out more about what OpenAI has in store for Global Illumination, the AI design firm it acquired in August and get a status of the release of GPT-4’s image recognition features.
