Just over a year ago, ChatGPT made waves globally. It seemed almost unbelievable that, with just a few prompts, this AI chatbot could effortlessly handle time-consuming tasks such as summarizing articles or planning intricate travel itineraries, all within seconds.

Fast forward to now, and OpenAI, the brains behind ChatGPT, has introduced a way for anyone to fashion their own version of ChatGPT, called GPTs. In a matter of minutes, you can build your own tailored GPT to suit your personal or business objectives.

1. What are GPTs?

GPTs are individualized versions of ChatGPT crafted by OpenAI users. Simply convey your desires to the GPT builder in plain English, and it takes care of the rest. For instance, when I asked it to create a chatbot sharing fun facts about otters, here's what the GPT builder suggested.

You can also configure your GPT to browse the web, generate images using DALLE·3, and run code.

While ChatGPT Plus or Enterprise users can customize ChatGPT responses, the GPT builder enhances this by allowing the creation of multiple GPTs with unlimited customization and the ability to upload knowledge source files.
