GPT-4 will take OpenAI ChatGPT to the next level

GPT-4In late 2022, the world was rattled when OpenAI published ChatGPT, a breakthrough tool that would alter work and academia.

Companies in the tech industry have boosted their efforts to compete with ChatGPT’s success since its introduction.

Google is keen to catch up, but they have taken a deliberate approach.

Although rivals are working on their own AI technologies, OpenAI has already unveiled its next innovation: GPT-4.

The news

OpenAI is releasing the next-generation version of the popular chatbot platform, ChatGPT, around four months after introducing ChatGPT.

On Tuesday, OpenAI published a blog post revealing GPT-4 and widening the gap with its competitors.

According to the company, GPT-4 can take a range of standardized tests.

Following many instances of ChatGPT going “off the rails,” OpenAI has responded to the concerns.


According to OpenAI, the revised system passed a simulated law school bar exam, placing in the top 10% of test takers.

GPT-3.5, the previous version, fared badly, ranking in the bottom 10%.

GPT-4 may effectively do the following tasks:

  • Read
  • Analyze
  • Generate over 25,000 words of text
  • Write code in all major programming languages

The upgrade was hailed by OpenAI as the company’s most recent milestone.

While technology is still less proficient than people in real-world circumstances, GPT-4 outperforms humans in professional and academic standards.


The most recent update to OpenAi’s broad language model is GPT-4.

The model is trained on massive amounts of online data to provide unique and interesting responses to input data.

Customers may now access the most recent version, but they must first sign up for a queue.

GPT-4 is already being slowly incorporated into a variety of third-party apps, including Microsoft’s upcoming AI-powered Bing.

On Tuesday, Microsoft published a statement expressing its joy with the improved edition.

“We are happy to confirm that the new Bing is running on GPT-4, which we’ve customized for search,” the company wrote.

“If you’ve used the new Bing preview at any time in the last five weeks, you’ve already experienced an early version of this powerful model.”

Since its release in November 2022, users have been ecstatic with OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology.

ChatGPT has received recognition for its ability to produce original tales, articles, and song lyrics based on user input.

Despite its revolutionary nature, ChatGPT has raised some eyebrows.

In recent weeks, AI chatbots in general have been chastised for the following reasons:

  • Being emotionally reactive
  • Making factual errors
  • Engaging in outright “hallucinations”

According to AI experts, hallucinations arise when AI systems deliver a manufactured result that seems convincing but has no real-world basis for its answer.

Microsoft and Google have been heavily criticized for their AI technologies causing hallucinations.


Although GPT-4 has been enhanced, it still retains the same limitations as previous GPT versions.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman announced the change in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

“It is more creative than previous models, it hallucinates significantly less, and it is less biased,” Altman started.

“It can pass a bar exam and score a 5 on several AP exams. There is a version with a 32k token context.”

“We are previewing visual input for GPT-4; we will need some time to mitigate the safety challenges.”

“We now support a “system” message in the API that allows developers (and soon ChatGPT users) to have significant customization of behavior,” he continued.

“If you want an AI that always answers you in the style of Shakespeare or in json [SIC], now you can have that.”

“We are open-sourcing OpenAI Evals, our framework for automated evaluation of AI model performance, to allow anyone to help improve our models.”

“We have had the initial training of GPT-4 done for quite a while, but it’s taken us a long time and a lot of work to feel ready to release it.”

Third-party business

The GPT-4 news comes just two weeks after OpenAI announced that third-party businesses may now use ChatGPT technologies.

Because of this decision, the chatbot may be integrated into a range of apps and services, including:

  • Instacart
  • Snap
  • Tutor app Quizlet

In January, Microsoft announced a multibillion-dollar investment in OpenAI.

The technique has now been included into the company’s products, most noticeably its search engine Bing.
