GPT-4 release date: When is the new model?

What we know about the new GPT-4 model

Last Updated on

OpenAI’s CEO has already confirmed a new model that is set to replace GPT-3.5. Surprise surprise, it will be called GPT-4!

We are happy to announce that the wait is finally over! OpenAI officially launched this new model on its website this week. And there’s no doubt about it – it is definitely something to get excited about.

So, since GPT-4 has arrived, what features will it have and how do you access it?

What can GPT-4 do?

Let’s have a look at what GPT-4 can do. The first major feature we need to cover is its multimodal capabilities. According to OpenAI, GPT-4 will be able to accept “image and text inputs, emitting text outputs”.

This new feature was also confirmed by Microsoft’s Germany CTO last week. But, what is a multimodal model? Well, this refers to a model that can operate using multiple mediums such as text, image, and sound.

This technology could open up a wide range of opportunities for its users and will completely revolutionize the way we interact with OpenAI-powered tools.

So, what else can we expect? Well, according to the developers, GPT-4 may be more similar to GPT-3.5 than we think.

Apparently, when chatting with the new model in “casual conversation”, GPT-4 will respond very similarly to its predecessor.

So, if you were hoping for a mega upgrade in this area, you’ll definitely be disappointed. All is not lost, though. GPT-4 has already been shown to outperform GPT-3.5 when it comes to answering exam questions written for humans.

Most notably, the new model achieved a score that sits in the 90th percentile for the Uniform Bar Exam. Pretty impressive stuff, when we compare it to GPT-3.5’s very low, 10th percentile score.

Besides the confirmed features there are still a few rumors circulating around the number of parameters this new model has.

Of course, Twitter users have something to say about GPT-4. One user claims that the model will be built using 100 trillion parameters. For reference GPT-3 was built using 175 billion parameters.

Although, Sam Altman was quick to deny this rumor in an interview with StrictlyVC. He claims the idea is completely “ridiculous”. So, that’s the end of that.

Will there be a Chat GPT-4?

Many people online are confused about the naming of OpenAI’s language models. More specifically Chat GPT and GPT-3. To make matters worse, they both are very advanced language models. However, they do have a few differences.

GPT-3 is an extremely powerful language model. This model can be fine-tuned to do any particular task, such as essay writing, text summarization, and more. To access this model, you must use OpenAI API.

On the other hand, Chat GPT is a less powerful variant of GPT-3. It was created and optimized to work more like a chatbot – the model has the ability to communicate and converse with the user to generate their request.

Imagine it like this – Chat GPT is built upon the foundation of GPT-3. Additionally, to use Chat GPT, OpenAI has made a dedicated website and user interface for the AI bot.

Now that is cleared up, we can answer the question. Strictly speaking, there will not be a Chat GPT-4 in the future. However, OpenAI has already confirmed they will implement GPT-4 technology into their Chat GPT chatbot.

This updated version is not available just yet, but you can sign up for the OpenAI waitlist or subscribe to Chat GPT Plus to gain access to the bot.

What is the status of GPT-4?

GPT-4 was officially released this week. OpenAI has confirmed the new model in a news post on its website. At the moment, the model is only available via Chat GPT for Chat GPT Plus members.

Although, if you are hoping to use the model for free, GPT-4 will also come available on the OpenAI Playground in the next coming weeks.

Final Thoughts
