OpenAI and Arizona State University partner for ChatGPT implementation

Artificial intelligence (AI) developer OpenAI and Arizona State University (ASU) — one of the leading research universities in the United States — have announced a new collaboration to implement ChatGPT enterprise in higher education.

The  Jan. 18 announcement makes ASU the first higher education institution to collaborate with OpenAI. Beginning in February, faculty and staff at the university will be invited to submit proposals on innovative uses for ChatGPT Enterprise.

The university’s three main areas of concentration include student success enhancement, new avenues for innovative research and streamlining organizational processes.

Lev Gonick, the chief information officer at ASU, said that nearly two-thirds of organizations are already “actively exploring” integrating AI.

“The goal is to leverage our knowledge core here at ASU to develop AI-driven projects aimed at revolutionizing educational techniques, aiding scholarly research and boosting administrative efficiency.”

He continued to say that providing access to advanced AI tools helps level the playing field for individuals and organizations alike to use AI for creative and innovative endeavors.

The university has already committed to “exploring AI in all forms” and announced the launch of its AI Acceleration team in 2023, which is a new team of technologists dedicated to creating the next generation of AI tools. 

According to the university’s official announcement, the OpenAI collaboration will empower the development of “new solutions” as part of this team’s efforts. Gonick said:

“If last year was considered to be generative AI’s breakout year, then 2024 will be a time for meaningful practice and exploration to leverage the true power of this technology.”

OpenAI has also been actively engaging in new partnerships as 2024 kicks off, with potential collaborations between media giants CNN, Fox and Time to secure news content licensing.
