OpenAI’s GPT-4 with Multimodal Capabilities Expected this Week.


The world of artificial intelligence is abuzz with excitement over the upcoming release of OpenAI’s GPT-4, the successor to the widely popular GPT-3.5 language model. With rumors of its imminent arrival this Thursday (16th March 2023)

At a recent event in Germany, Microsoft’s CTO, Andreas Braun, made the surprise announcement that GPT-4 could be arriving as early as this week. According to Braun, the new AI model will have advanced capabilities, including the ability to recognise and understand inputs from text, images and video and to turn text into video. This puts GPT-4 on a level playing field with rivals like Meta and Google, which already revealed their own text-to-video generators last year.

While details on GPT-4 remain sparse, it is known that the largest language model in GPT 3.5 had 175 billion parameters, while Meta’s own language model had a maximum of 65 billion parameters. It’s still unclear what parameters GPT-4 will have, but OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has previously dismissed rumors that the new model would have 100 trillion parameters.

Another aspect of GPT-4 is its tightening on security controls, which could address concerns about the potential misuse of AI technology. As AI becomes increasingly powerful and pervasive, security and ethical considerations are more important than ever.

Microsoft is holding a special event on March 16th to showcase the future of AI, including how it will work in productivity apps like Teams, Word, and Outlook. It will be interesting to see what other advancements in AI technology will be revealed, and how GPT-4 will fit into the larger landscape of AI innovation.

Overall, the upcoming release of GPT-4 promises to be a major development in the world of artificial intelligence. With its advanced capabilities and improved security measures, it could usher in a new era of AI innovation and applications. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development in the world of technology.
