The lines between man and machine are set to become even more blurred with the introduction of GPT-4.
On Tuesday, March 14, 2023, technology corporation OpenAI formally announced its creation of the AI model, GPT-4.
While the corporation conceded the AI model’s limitations, it asserted that the model’s functionality rivals human intellect in diverse professional and scholarly situations.
More specifically, it noted that GPT-4 is capable of acing mock bar examinations with a score typical of the top ten per cent of takers.
This new development can scarcely be viewed in isolation. Following OpenAI’s initial release of ChatGPT in November 2022, being a member of the GPT-3 family, users worldwide have discovered numerous possible applications of the software for routine operations.
For many, ChatGPT is a valuable tool for obtaining step-by-step instructions on how to execute work tasks.
For some others, particularly in the academic space, ChatGPT represents a faster and more clinical means of generating research papers.
GPT-4 is the product of at least two years of OpenAI reworking its deep learning stack. The software also reflects tweaks to the lingering issues of GPT-3.5.
Strides notwithstanding, it goes without saying that more updates would arrive in the coming months and years.
Regarding the software’s potential ripple effects on society, more natural persons will have no choice but to embrace AI as an ally.
One can expect more scrutiny from the academic sphere, which is already notable for its anti-plagiarism stance and the delivery of original, “organic” work.
In addition, the room for improvement in GPT-4 represents a template for larger technology corporations to follow in formulating and improving their own AI models (case in point, Twitter, Inc. introducing Spaces after the arrival of Clubhouse).
On March 14, 2023, Google, Inc. equally disclosed plans to make its Workspace suite more automated.
This way, the software can automatically generate emails, personalise emails when necessary, and even generate meeting minutes from Docs files.
Indeed, people will be more disposed to perceiving AI as an ally and embracing it.
Users interested in trying out GPT-4 can visit the OpenAI website and create an account. Access to GPT-4 currently depends on a paid subscription.
