In an effort to increase its worldwide footprint, ChatGPT creator OpenAI has built its first office in Asia in Tokyo, Japan.

Japan's OpenAI!

According to official remarks, "We're giving local businesses early access to a GPT-4 custom model specifically optimized for the Japanese language as a first step in our long-term commitment to the region."

We're thrilled to be in Japan on Sunday, a country with a long history of combining technology and people to achieve more. According to Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, "We think AI will accelerate work by enabling people to be more creative and productive while also delivering broad value to current and new industries that have yet to be imagined."

What comes next!

As part of their new endeavor, it is thought that the business has named Tadao Nagasaki as the new president of OpenAI Japan, with the responsibility of overseeing the company's commercial and market engagement initiatives. Experts said that Tokyo was their choice due to its reputation as a worldwide leader in technology, its service-oriented culture, and its innovative community. Microsoft reportedly stated that it will be spending around $2.9 billion over the course of the next two years to expand its AI and hyperscale cloud computing infrastructure in Japan.

Additionally, according to OpenAI, "this custom model operates up to three times faster than its predecessor, is cost-effective, and offers improved performance in translating and summarizing Japanese text." According to OpenAI, ChatGPT is being used by local governments and Japanese companies like Toyota and Daikin to increase productivity.
