After months of rumors and speculation, OpenAI has announced GPT-4: the latest in its line of AI language models that power applications like ChatGPT and the new Bing. From a report:
The company claims the model is “more creative and collaborative than ever before,” and “can solve difficult problems with greater accuracy, thanks to its broader general knowledge and problem solving abilities.” OpenAI says it’s already partnered with a number of companies to integrate GPT-4 into their products, including Duolingo, Stripe, and Khan Academy. The new model will also be available on ChatGPT Plus and as an API.
In a research blog post, OpenAI said the distinction between GPT-4 and its predecessor GPT-3.5 is “subtle” in casual conversation (GPT-3.5 is the model that powers ChatGPT), but that the differences between the systems are clear when faced with more complex tasks. The company says these improvements can be seen on GPT-4’s performance on a number of tests and benchmarks, including the Uniform Bar Exam, LSAT, SAT Math and SAT Evidence-Based Reading & Writing exams. In the exams mentioned GPT-4 scored in the 88th percentile and above, with a full list of exams and scores seen here. Speculation about GPT-4 and its capabilities have been rife over the past year, with many suggesting it would be a huge leap over previous systems. “People are begging to be disappointed and they will be,” said OpenAI CEO Sam Altman in an interview in January. “The hype is just like… We don’t have an actual AGI and that’s sort of what’s expected of us.”
