Stack Overflow signs deal with OpenAI to supply data for AI models

OpenAI is collaborating with Stack Overflow to improve its generative AI models by providing data from the Q&A forum for software developers. The partnership aims to enhance OpenAIs models, including those on its ChatGPT chatbot platform, in answering programming-related questions. Despite initial concerns about spammy responses, Stack Overflow is now embracing generative AI features, with the first set to go live by June. The agreement with OpenAI follows earlier partnerships with Google to enrich its AI models. Stack Overflows CEO emphasizes the importance of AI strategy for future growth and revenue generation. Despite some pushback, developers are increasingly using AI tools in coding tasks, leading to an existential crisis for the platform as it seeks new ways to engage users and maintain quality information.
