Jasper AI quietly built one of the top AI-based writing assistants atop OpenAI's GPT-3 large language model (LLM). Then, suddenly its growth and recognition exploded ... in a good way. That led to a $125 million series A funding round that was well-timed ahead of the new interest in the AI-writing assistant space after the introduction of ChatGPT.
Shane Orlick is president of Jasper AI and walks through the company's origins, the product, and how customers use these tools today. He even mentions some product features that have not yet been announced (breaking news on the Voicebot Podcast once again) and how users are applying the new Jasper Chat (a ChatGPT-like interface) versus the templates that Jasper has created and refined for specific use cases. For those of you interested in the technical stack behind Jasper and the company's move to build an internal NLU and new AI models that supplement the OpenAI APIs, this may be the only conversation out there with that insight.
Shane also discusses the broader market news, such as the impact of ChatGPT, the emergence of text-to-image models, and the rumors about OpenAI's big valuation and potential new investment from Microsoft. We cover a lot of ground around products, user behavior, generative AI, and the broader synthetic media market.

Jasper AI is quickly becoming a leader in the AI-writing assistant space. Founded atop OpenAI's GPT-3 large language model (LLM), the company has seen tremendous growth and recognition, so much so that it was able to secure a $125 million series A funding round just before the rise of interest in AI-writing assistants with ChatGPT.
Shane Orlick, president of Jasper AI, outlines the company's origins, product features (including some exclusive news!), and how customers are using these tools. In addition, he dives into the technical stack behind Jasper, which includes an internal NLU and new AI models beyond what OpenAI APIs offer. He also shares his thoughts on the broader synthetic media market, including ChatGPT's influence, text-to-image models, OpenAI's potential big valuation, and Microsoft potentially investing.
This podcast offers an insightful look at what users can expect from Jasper as well as trends in generative AI and user behavior when it comes to writing and creating content with these tools.
