This year has been marked by a flurry of AI innovations and news from major players like OpenAI and Google. Of these developments, the most significant is likely the upcoming release of GPT-4, the successor to GPT-3, which currently powers ChatGPT.
The rapid pace of innovation and deployment in AI can be difficult to keep up with. In this edition, I will provide a preview of some of the major AI announcements and their potential impact. Let’s get started and explore these exciting developments!
GPT-4 and how different is it from GPT-3?
GPT-4 is the next major release from the Open AI stable after GPT-3 (ChatGPT). If you thought GPT-3 was crazy, GPT-4 is on a different level. Let’s first understand the differences between GPT-3 and GPT-4. (By GPT-3, I mean the current version that is powering ChatGPT free public version.)
The main differences between GPT-3 and GPT-4 are:
- It can understand images. You can provide visual input and ask questions or get responses. For example, you can provide a wireframe on a napkin and ask the system to provide a fully functioning website.
- It has a much bigger memory around 50 pages of text. It can also take a larger prompt of upto 25000 words.
- It is multilingual and can answer queries in different languages. (But I guess this capability is still nascent and can improve over time.)
- It is safer: It is 82% less likely to respond to requests for disallowed content. It is 40% more likely to produce factual responses than GPT-3.
There has been speculation about how the rollout of GPT-4 may differ from previous releases. It’s possible that OpenAI may collaborate with various companies on different projects, resulting in multiple product announcements. While it’s unclear how much free access to GPT-4 will be available, it’s likely that OpenAI will introduce several new products.
If you’re interested in trying out GPT-4 for yourself, it may require an upgrade to a paid service like ChatGPT Plus, which could cost $20 per month. Additionally, it’s possible that one way to test out GPT-4 may be through Microsoft’s search engine, Bing. To get a sense of the differences between GPT-3 and GPT-4, you could try inputting various prompts into both models and comparing the output.
