There were a few additional performance issues with ChatGPT over the past week, all of which were resolved quickly.

OpenAI Legal Troubles And Privacy Concerns

Code Interpreter’s Beta launch came a few days after OpenAI had to disable Browse with Bing, the official ChatGPT plugin for web browsing. OpenAI is still working on a fix to protect content creators and publishers from Browse with Bing, allowing users to bypass paywalls.

OpenAI also experienced a massive breach of user credentials and faced legal action over using copyrighted books and users’ personal data to train its models.

The ChatGPT app addresses privacy practices on the OpenAI website, in privacy disclaimers, and on the app’s opening screen.

Despite these concerns, the App Store places ChatGPT as #1 in the productivity category, averaging 4.4 stars from over 10.1k users.

New Feature Releases Amidst Controversy

OpenAI’s announcement of the Code Interpreter as an official plugin for ChatGPT Plus users marks a significant step in enhancing the capabilities of the AI language model.

However, this launch comes at a time when OpenAI is grappling with privacy concerns and legal issues.

OpenAI must address and alleviate the concerns surrounding data protection and copyright issues, especially considering the sensitive nature of executing code and uploading files using Code Interpreter or other ChatGPT plugins.

Otherwise, users concerned with privacy and generative AI content quality will turn to ChatGPT alternatives that outperform the leading AI chatbots.
