OpenAI has announced its foray into academia with first partnership with higher education institution – Arizona State University. Under this partnership, the University will have full access to ChatGPT Enterprise for tutoring, courses, research, and more.
This partnership has been in talks for the last six months after the official visit of ASU’s Chief Information Officer Lev Gonick visit at OpenAI’s Headquarters.
Michael Crow, President, Arizona State University commented on this collaboration and said, “ASU recognizes that augmented and artificial intelligence systems are here to stay, and we are optimistic about their ability to become incredible tools that help students to learn.”
The business tier of ChatGPT, known as ChatGPT Enterprise, made its debut in August and offers features like usage caps-free access to GPT-4, performance that is up to twice as fast as earlier versions, and API credits.
OpenAI Chief Operating Officer Brad Lightcap stated in a release that the company is “keen to learn from ASU” and to increase the number of higher education institutions using ChatGPT.
Any prompts that the ASU community enters into ChatGPT “remain secure,” according to a joint statement from OpenAI and ASU, and OpenAI “does not use this data for its training models.”
Through the OpenAI collaboration, ASU hopes to create a personalized AI tutor for students that covers both course-specific material and study topics. STEM subjects are prioritized and are “the make-or-break subjects for a lot of higher education,” according to Gonick. The tool will also be used by the university in Freshman Composition, the largest course at ASU, to help students with their writing.Be a part of Elets Collaborative Initiatives.
