(CNN) – On the first day after its introduction, GPT-4 amazed many users in early tests and company demonstrations with its ability to write applications, pass standardized tests, and build a functional website from a hand-drawn sketch.
On Tuesday, OpenAI advertisement The release of the next generation of AI technology that powers the viral chatbot tool, ChatGPT. More powerful than previous iterations, GPT-4 promises to change the way we use the Internet for work, play, and creativity. But it can also add challenging questions about how artificial intelligence (AI) tools can change careers, allow students to cheat, and change our relationship with technology.
GPT-4 is an updated version of the enterprise language model, which is trained on large amounts of online data to generate complex responses to user requests. It’s available now via a waitlist and has already found its way into some third-party products, including Microsoft’s new AI-powered Bing search engine. Some users who have early access to the tool share their experiences and highlight some of their most compelling use cases.
Here’s a closer look at the capabilities of GPT-4.
GPT-4 parses most of the text
Basically, the biggest change to GPT-4 is its ability to work with user-uploaded images.
One of the most amazing use cases to date has come from OpenAI video demo that showed how The graphic can be turned into a functional website within minutes. The demonstrator loaded the image in GPT-4 and then pasted the resulting code into a preview showing what a working website might look like.
In its announcement, OpenAI also showed it How GPT-4 was requested To explain a joke from a series of photos, showing a smartphone with a faulty charger, and to explain why it is funny. Although it may seem obvious, the dissection of a joke is difficult for AI tools to detect because of the context required.
in another test, The New York Times showed GPT-4 A picture of the inside of the refrigerator and asked him to prepare a meal based on the ingredients.
The photo feature is not yet available, but OpenAI is expected to implement it in the coming weeks.
Coding is easier
It was also used by some early users of GPT-4 who had little or no knowledge of the earlier code Recreate popular games like Pong, Tetris or Snake After following the step by step instructions provided by the tool on how to do that. Others made their own original games. (GPT-4 can write code in all major programming languages, according to OpenAI.)
“GPT-4’s powerful language capabilities will be used for everything from storyboarding, character creation to game content creation,” said Arun Chandrasekaran, an analyst at Gartner Research. “This may lead to more independent game providers in the future. But beyond the game itself, GPT-4 and similar models can be used to create marketing content around game previews, create news articles, and even moderate game discussion forums.”
Similar to games, GPT-4 can change the way people develop applications. Said a user on Twitter Create a simple drawing app in minuteswhile another claimed to have encrypted it An app that recommends five movies New ones every day, plus trailers and details on where to watch them.
“Programming is like learning to drive: as long as a beginner is guided, anyone can code,” said Lian Jye Su, an analyst at ABI Research. “Artificial intelligence can be a good teacher.”
Pass tests with flying colors
Although OpenAI said the update is “less capable” than humans in many real-world scenarios, it shows “human-level performance” in many professional and academic tests. The company said that GPT-4 recently passed a mock exam for law school with scores in the top 10% of test takers. By contrast, the previous version, GPT-3.5, scored around 10%. The latest version also performed strongly on the LSAT, GRE, SAT, and several AP tests, according to OpenAI.
In January, ChatGPT made headlines for its ability to pass prestigious graduate exams, such as those for the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, but not with a particularly high score. The company said it spent months using lessons from its testing software and ChatGPT to improve the system’s accuracy and ability to stay on topic.
Give more accurate answers
Compared to the previous version, GPT-4 can produce longer, more detailed, and more reliable typing responses, according to the company.
The latest version can now provide answers of up to 25,000 words, up from 4,000 words previously, and can provide detailed instructions for even the most discerning scenarios, from how to clean a piranha tank to how to extract DNA from a strawberry. One early user said he made detailed suggestions for pickup lines based on a question listed on his dating profile.
Improve work in various industries
Joshua Browder, CEO of legal services chatbot DoNotPay, said his company Already working on using From the One-Click Litigation tool to suing robo-callers, it’s an early indication of the great potential of GPT-4 to change the way people work across industries.
Imagine receiving a call, by clicking a button, [la] The call was transcribed and a 1,000-word request was created. GPT-3.5 wasn’t good enough, but GPT-4 does the job very well,” Browder tweeted.
Meanwhile, Jake Kozlowski, CEO of dating site Keeper, said: He said That your company is using the tool to better interact with its users.
According to Su at ABI Research, we may also see significant developments in “[tableros] Connected cars, remote diagnostics in healthcare, and other AI applications that weren’t possible before.
Work in progress
Although the company has made significant improvements to its AI model, GPT-4 has similar limitations to previous versions. OpenAI said the technology lacks knowledge of events that occurred before the data set was cut (September 2021) and does not learn from their experience. You can also make “minor logical errors” or be “overly naive in accepting obviously false statements from the user,” the company said, and fail to double-check the work.
This also reflects many models of artificial intelligence today, Gartner’s Chandrasekaran said. “Let’s not forget that these AI models are not perfect,” Chandrasekaran said. “It can produce inaccuracies from time to time and can be black box in nature.”
For now, OpenAI has said that GPT-4 users should exercise caution and use “extreme caution,” especially “in high-risk contexts.”
