I am really excited about this new feature, first reported by Ars Technica.
OpenAI just added a cool new thing to ChatGPT that lets you bring in special AI helpers into your chat using the “@” sign. It’s like adding experts to your conversation without having to start over or lose track of what you were talking about. This new trick makes it easier to work with different AI helpers at once, almost like they’re a team working together in the ChatGPT app.
Before, if you wanted to switch between different AI helpers to get different kinds of help, you had to copy your conversation, start a new chat, paste it in, and explain everything all over again. Now, you can just stay in one chat, use the “@” sign to bring in any helper you need, and keep the conversation going smoothly.
For example, OpenAI made two helpers: one that knows a lot about human health and another that knows about dog health. So, if you’re talking about food poisoning in people and then need advice for your dog, you can switch between these two helpers easily without starting a new chat.
This feature is super handy because it lets you talk to an AI that writes ads and then switch to an AI that checks your writing, all in the same chat. Each helper has its own special skills and knowledge, but ChatGPT remembers everything you said, even when you switch helpers.
This new update is a small step towards a future where AI helpers can work together like a team to help you out in more complex ways. OpenAI has been careful about making ChatGPT act like a bunch of separate helpers instead of one big one, but this new feature shows they’re starting to explore how these AI helpers can work together better.
