Upwork (NASDAQ: UPWK), announced OpenAI Experts on Upwork, giving OpenAI customers and other businesses direct access to trusted expert independent professionals deeply experienced in working with OpenAI technologies.
Upwork, the world’s work marketplace and OpenAI, a leading AI research and deployment company, co-designed the programme to feature talent adept at working with the OpenAI API platform and to draw from the 250 unique AI skills available, including GPT-4, Whisper and AI model integration.
With the marketplace, OpenAI is already leveraging talent from the platform to support its own innovation and growth, and quickly saw value in helping its customers connect to talent leading to the new partnership.
Together, the companies identified the most common use cases for OpenAI customers – like building applications powered by large language models (LLMs), fine-tuning models and developing chatbots with responsible AI in mind – along with the key skills required for success. The two companies also formulated a pre-vetting process for identifying AI experts who appear as part of the programme.
OpenAI Experts on Upwork is an extension of the AI Services hub, which connects companies with some of the most skilled independent professionals in AI fields from across the globe, along with new beta features and resources that help customers get work done faster and more effectively.
The programme leverages the company’s talent managers to pre-vet and curate talent with AI expertise and experience with the OpenAI platform. The process includes a discussion of technical skills and an OpenAI project portfolio, ensuring professionals have verified skill sets and experience. Clients can engage with OpenAI Experts via 1:1 consultations or project-based contracts.
