The well-known AI chatbot ChatGPT was created on the GPT-3.5 model, which has now been modified by OpenAI to become the GPT-4 model. In addition to reading text inputs, the new model can also read photos and graphics to create text outputs. According to the company, the model meets a range of academic and professional standards with human-level performance.

The AI company claims that the model is more inventive and creative than ever before and can tackle complex problems with improved accuracy. It can now comprehend both text and visual input, but the only kind of communication it can return is text. In addition, OpenAI cautions that the systems still suffer from many of the same problems as prior language models, such as the tendency to invent information (also known as "hallucinate") and the capacity to produce violent and harmful material.
The difference between GPT-3 and GPT-4 may appear to be modest in normal conversation, but when the task's complexity exceeds a certain threshold, GPT-4 proves to be more trustworthy, inventive, and "able to handle significantly more nuanced instructions than GPT-3," according to OpenAI.
The team was cited as expressing the following while discussing replies to prohibited content, which has been a persistent complaint of the developers' work from ChatGPT's inception:
"We spent 6 months making GPT-4 safer and more aligned. GPT-4 is 82% less likely to respond to requests for disallowed content and 40% more likely to produce factual responses than GPT-3.5 on our internal evaluations."
In a surprising turn of events, OpenAI discovered that the next generation language model had been concealed from view the entire time. In the end, Microsoft revealed that the GPT-4 platform was used by the AI chatbot Bing Chat, which was developed in collaboration with OpenAI.
Other early adopters include Duolingo, which integrated GPT-4 into a new language learning subscription tier, and Stripe, which utilizes GPT-4 to scan commercial business websites and provide a summary to customer care workers.
OpenAI's premium users get immediate access to GPT-4 through ChatGPT Plus, while developers may now sign up for a queue to have access to the API.
