The much-anticipated language AI model from OpenAI, GPT-4, is now available. Following a period of widespread rumors and speculation, the company has confirmed its newest product—deemed "more creative and collaborative."
The model allegedly solves problems with an enhanced level of accuracy and can interpret both text and image input, responding only through text. Despite these exciting features, OpenAI has cautioned that the AI model still exhibits some previous limitations, such as a tendency to generate violent or harmful text, or even to “hallucinate” information.
OpenAI has partnered with various organizations, notably Duolingo and Khan Academy, in integrating GPT-4 into their products. The model is also available for public use through ChatGPT Plus and powers Microsoft's Bing chatbot service. Furthermore, it can be accessed via API by developers seeking to build upon it.More on AI & Machine Learning here
According to a research blog post by OpenAI, the differences between GPT-4 and its predecessor GPT-3.5 are "subtle." The CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman, tweeted that the new model was "still flawed, still limited," but initially impresses more than its actual longer-term use justifies.
OpenAI states that the improvements in GPT-4 can be seen in the system's performance on various tests and benchmarks. For example, it scored in the 88th percentile and above in the Uniform Bar Exam, LSAT, SAT Math, and SAT Evidence-Based Reading & Writing exams.
Many assumed that GPT-4 would be a monumental leap over previous models, but its progression appears to be more iterative. "People are begging to be disappointed and they will be," said Altman, indicating that the hype around the product was over-inflated.
Excitingly, the system is multimodal - meaning it can process both text and image input - although this capacity is more limited than some expected. Despite this, the ability to parse text and image simultaneously could allow the AI to interpret more complex inputs.
The journey to develop GPT-4 has been long, with AI language models gaining traction slowly over several years before reaching mainstream attention recently. GPT-4 follows on from the original research paper on GPT published in 2018, and its successors GPT-2 (announced in 2019) and GPT-3 (announced in 2020).
Despite the concerns around potential misuse, such as generating spam or misinformation, OpenAI launched ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, in late 2022. This introduction prompted a frenzy in the tech world, with Microsoft launching Bing, its own AI chatbot, and Google attempting to catch up.
Indeed, the broader availability of these language models has posed issues. They are notably disrupting the educational system and leading to an insurgence of AI-generated content on various online platforms. However, some argue that the damaging effects have been less significant than anticipated.
In the GPT-4 launch announcement, OpenAI indicated that the system underwent six months of safety training. The company claims its internal tests show GPT-4 is much less likely to respond to requests for disallowed content and more likely to provide factual responses than GPT-3.5.
Nevertheless, the AI language model isn't without its errors. Microsoft has confirmed that its Bing chatbot is powered by GPT-4, and users have creatively bypassed Bing’s guardrails, prompting the bot to dispense hazardous advice, threaten users, and fabricate information. Lastly, GPT-4 lacks knowledge about events after its data cut-off in September 2021.+ Read the full article GPT-4 the newest OpenAI's AI language mode, is now available (LIVE)
OpenAI advances again with GPT-4, the latest in its catalog of AI-based language models such as ChatGPT and Bing's fresh algorithm. The creators report that this model exhibits greater creativity and collaboration, along with scoring higher in problem-solving precision. In addition to text, it can also interpret images, although it remains text-bound in its responses. But while there are noticeable improvements, GPT-4 still shares some shortcomings of earlier versions, such as occasional inaccuracies and the potential to generate harmful content.
