GPT-4 Unveiled: The Future of AI Language Models

GPT-4 Unveiled: The Future of AI Language Models

In the first day after it was unveiled, GPT-4 stunned many users in early tests and a company demo with its ability to draft lawsuits, pass standardized exams, and build a working website from a hand-drawn sketch. On Tuesday, OpenAI announced the next-generation version of the artificial intelligence technology that underpins its viral chatbot tool, ChatGPT. The more powerful GPT-4 promises to blow previous iterations out of the water, potentially changing the way we use the internet to work, play and create. But it could also add to challenging questions around how AI tools can upend professions, enable students to cheat, and shift our relationship with technology.

At its core, the biggest change to GPT-4 is its ability to work with photos that users upload. One of the most jaw-dropping use cases so far came from an OpenAI video demo that showed how a drawing could be turned into a functional website within minutes. The photos feature isn’t live yet, but OpenAI is expected to roll it out in the upcoming weeks.

GPT-4 can write code in all major programming languages, according to OpenAI. Some early users with very little prior coding knowledge have also used it to recreate iconic games such as Pong, Tetris or Snake after following step-by-step instructions provided by the tool on how to do so. Others have made their own original games.

Although OpenAI said the update is “less capable” than humans in many real-world scenarios, it exhibits “human-level performance” on various professional and academic tests. The company said GPT-4 recently passed a simulated law school bar exam with a score around the top 10% of test takers. The latest version also performed strongly on the LSAT, GRE, SATs and many AP exams, according to OpenAI.

Compared to the prior version, GPT-4 is able to produce longer, more detailed and more reliable written responses. It can provide detailed instructions for even the most unique scenarios, ranging from how to clean a piranha’s fish tank to extracting the DNA of a strawberry.

Joshua Browder, CEO of legal services chatbot DoNotPay, said his company is already working on using the tool to generate “one click lawsuits” to sue robocallers, in an early indication of the vast potential for GPT-4 to change how people work across industries. Meanwhile, Jake Kozloski, CEO of dating site Keeper, said his company is using the tool to better match its users.

Although the company has made vast improvements to its AI model, GPT-4 has similar limitations to previous versions. OpenAI said the technology lacks knowledge of events that occurred before its data set cuts off (September 2021) and does not learn from its experience. It can also make “simple reasoning errors” or be “overly gullible in accepting obvious false statements from a user,” and not double-check work, the company said.

With the capabilities of GPT-4, it's now easier to create, learn, and work in an AI-powered world. And with the ChatGPT booster prompt library, you can take your experience to the next level. Unlock the full potential of GPT-4
