News Room

Here are five things in tech that happened this week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?

1 – OpenAI plans app store for AI software, The Information reports.

Research laboratory OpenAI has made announcements about introducing a marketplace where developers can offer their version of the generative AI as reported by The Information. ChatGPT – launched by OpenAI last year – has been the focus of numerous tech experts who have seen an increase in its usage. Companies are now refining how the technology is used (zeroing in on specific data) and developing their own models that OpenAI plans to include in this marketplace. Strategically, this widens the company’s customer base according to those familiar with this development. (Source: Reuters)

Why this is important for your business:

If you’re a developer or looking for custom-developed AI solutions then the OpenAI app store seems like a good place to start. But like I’ve been saying to my clients for a while now, let the software vendors do this. You’re job is to ask, learn and leverage these apps to benefit your business.

Why this is important for your business:

I’m still on Team-Twitter. I use it daily and have found both the performance to be fine and the toxicity to be less than before. I’m hoping more businesses will gravitate to this platform so that I can have opportunities with potential new clients.

4 Recruiting automation startup Humanly lands $12M as it doubles down on AI.

Nate Bek of GeekWire reported on an impressive piece of news from the Seattle-based startup, Humanly. It has increased investment dollars in AI through its Series A funding – the company said on its website (twelve million, to be exact). The company offers recruiting services to companies seeking candidates with relevant experience. A large part of the money raised will be applied to SMS chatbots to help companies with their hiring process and adhering to certain criteria. It will also be programmed for interactive exchanges supported by “AI analytics features… which run during live calls, generate insights and send follow-up emails.” (Source: GeekWire)

Why this is important for your business:

Although geared towards larger concerns with more hiring activity, platforms like Humanly are proliferating, all leveraging AI and all promising a better and more credible recruiting experience both for employers and their employee-targets. While most small businesses don’t take full advantage of these platforms yet I’m expecting to see them grow in usage as their costs decrease.
