OpenAI has presented GPT-4, an update for its AI language model ChatGPT. In addition to text input, the new model will also be able to handle images in the future, making artificial intelligence even more powerful and clever.
GPT-4: This is the latest version of the AI language model ChatGPT from developer company OpenAI. According to the official product description, the chatbot will be able to process images as well as text input in the future.
GPT-4: New update makes ChatGPT even more powerful and smarter
As a result, the improved version is said to be “more creative” and “less biased” than its predecessor GPT-3.5. With GPT-4, for example, the artificial intelligence can describe images and generate eight times more text. The update also promises more security.
The probability that ChatGPT will provide more factual answers in the future with GPT-4 is also 40 per cent higher, according to OpenAI. In addition, the AI is said to be able to “perform at a human level in various professional and academic challenges”. This includes, among other things, top grades on bar exams.
GPT-4 currently only in paid subscription ChatGPT Plust
GPT-4 is currently only available to subscribers of the ChatGPT Plus paid subscription. There is also a waiting list for the update. However, customers like Microsoft could already use the new version of the chatbot.
The company even confirmed that GPT-4 has already been in use within the Microsoft search engine Bing for a few weeks. Meanwhile, the voice app Duolingo is using the new version for better dialogue training, which is to be included in its own new and more expensive subscription.
ChatGPT: Opportunity or risk?
In turn, OpenAI CTO Mira Murati revealed that a little less attention would do the company and AI good. In an interview with Fast Company magazine, she also criticised the scepticism of teachers towards ChatGPT.
Murati instead described AI as opportunities and a tool that could help in the classroom. The background is that the New York School Board had already banned ChatGPT in public schools at the beginning of the year. The authority fears negative effects on the learning effect.
