Microsoft, which has already invested more than $10 billion in OpenAI, has announced that the AI-based startup is preparing to launch GPT-4 in the coming week. Experts predict that GPT-4 will surpass ChatGPT’s capabilities by a significant margin, rendering the latter as a basic model in comparison. ChatGPT has garnered a significant buzz since its release in November last year, thanks to its powerful large language model-based AI generator. Initially based on GPT-3, it was later updated to GPT-3.5. However, the next big advancement in AI is almost upon us, as Microsoft has revealed that it will be releasing GPT-4-based applications to the public next week. For anyone remotely interested in AI and its applications, this is a monumental development.
what is GPT-4?
GPT-4 is a natural language processing (NLP) model developed by OpenAI, which is designed to generate human-like text based on input prompts. It is the successor to GPT-3, which is currently one of the most advanced and powerful language models in existence. Like its predecessors, GPT-4 is based on deep learning techniques, specifically a type of neural network known as a transformer model. GPT-4 is expected to have significantly more parameters than its predecessor, enabling it to generate even more sophisticated and nuanced responses to input prompts. While details about GPT-4 are still limited, it is anticipated to be a major breakthrough in NLP and AI research, with potential applications in areas such as content creation, chatbots, language translation, and more.
How is GPT-4 better than GPT-3?
As GPT-4 has not been released yet, it is not possible to give a definitive answer about how it will be better than GPT-3. However, based on what has been announced by OpenAI, we can expect some improvements in various aspects of the model.
One of the most significant improvements of GPT-4 over GPT-3 is expected to be its model size. While GPT-3 has 175 billion parameters, making it one of the largest language models currently available, GPT-4 is expected to be even larger, with an estimated 10 trillion parameters. This increase in size will likely result in a significant improvement in the model’s ability to understand and generate more nuanced and sophisticated language.
Additionally, GPT-4 is expected to have better accuracy and coherence in generating language, and a better ability to generate language that is contextually appropriate and relevant. It may also have better zero-shot learning capabilities, allowing it to perform tasks for which it was not explicitly trained.
Overall, GPT-4 is expected to be a significant leap forward in natural language processing technology, with the potential to unlock new applications and use cases.
What about Google and Meta’s AI?
Google and Meta have their own AI models. Google has Bard, an experimental conversational AI service, which like ChatGPT, is powered by LaMDA. Meta’s AI, on the other hand, is powered by PyTorch, an open-source machine learning framework that was developed in collaboration with the AI community and is now part of the Linux Foundation. Both Google Bard and Meta’s AI are similar to GPT-4 in that they can generate both text and videos. However, these AI models have some notable issues that lead to inaccuracies in the results they produce. For instance, when Google demoed their Bard AI and it provided an incorrect answer, the company’s stock dropped by $100 billion. This incident highlights the potential consequences of AI-generated content that is not entirely accurate.
Despite concerns over AI models’ accuracy, OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, and CTO, Mira Murati, believe that GPT-4 will be a significant paradigm shift in the field. While both have cautioned against overhyping the model, they have hinted at its potential to usher in a new era of natural language processing and artificial intelligence.
