OpenAI GPT-4: artificial intelligence for ‘human performance’.

OpenAI has announced to the world that its new artificial intelligence is now available: the GPT-4.

The new generation that will power the current AI in. ChatGPT and which has been used in Microsoft’s search engine comes with several promises up its sleeve, especially a very striking one: it wants to accept images.

What GPT-4 brings

Whereas GPT-3.5 can work with and read text, its new version aims to generate text after interpreting images.

“While it is less capable than humans in many real-world scenarios,” wrote the team at OpenAI on Tuesday, “exhibits human-level performance on several professional and academic benchmarks.”

The company reports that GPT-4 passed simulated exams (such as Uniform Bar, LSAT, GRE, and various AP tests) with a score “about 10% higher of examinees” compared to. GPT-3.5 which scored in the bottom 10%.

“In an informal conversation, the distinction between. GPT-3.5 y GPT-4 can be subtle. The difference arises when the complexity of the task reaches a sufficient threshold: GPT-4 is more reliable, creative, and capable of handling much more nuanced instructions than GPT-3.5“, adds the company.

First steps

OpenAI notes that, for the time being, the image entries are still a preview of the research and will not yet be publicly available.

And there is an even more important caveat: “Despite its capabilities, the GPT-4 has similar limitations as previous GPT models. Most importantly, it is still not fully reliable (“hallucinates” the facts and makes reasoning errors).”

OpenAI says that the GPT-4 will be available for both ChatGPT as well as for the API. You will need to be a ChatGPT Plus subscriber to get access, and you should note that there will be a usage limit for playing with the new model. API access for the new model is handled through a waiting list.
