OpenAI unveils GPT-4, a new foundation for ChatGPT


Artificial intelligence (AI) research firm OpenAI today revealed the latest version of its computer program for natural language processing that powers ChatGPT, the wildly hyped chatbot with a fast-growing user base.

ChatGPT creator OpenAI announced the new large language model in a blog post, saying it will have better features than its predecessor, GPT-3.5 Word of GPT-4 first leaked last week when Andreas Braun, CTO of Microsoft Germany, let slip that it would be launched this week.

The new GPT-4 large language model will be different from previous versions, offering what the company called a “multimodal system” that can process not just text, but images, video, or audio. 

“There we will have multimodal models that will offer completely different possibilities,” Braun said, according to the German news site Heise.

The other capability OpenAI appears to be touting is the ability of GPT-4 to handle inputs in several languages beyond English.

“It also look like conversational applications built on GPT-4 (Including ChatGPT) can have different personal styles to align with the user demographics they are targeting,” Arun Chandrasekaran, a distinguished vice president of research at Gartner, said in an email response to Computerworld.
