GPT-4 is OpenAI’s latest innovation

GPT-4 –  The world was shook in late 2022 when OpenAI released ChatGPT, a revolutionary tool that would transform work and academics.

Since its launch, companies in the tech sector have increased their attempts to compete with ChatGPT’s popularity.

Google has been determined to catch up, but they have been methodical in their approach.

Although competitors seek to develop their own AI technology, OpenAI has already released its next innovation: GPT-4.

The news

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

OpenAI released a blog post on Tuesday to reveal GPT-4 and extend the gap with its competitors.

According to the firm, GPT-4 can perform a variety of standardized exams.

Following several reports of ChatGPT running “off the rails,” OpenAI has addressed the concerns with their answers.


The updated system, according to OpenAI, passed a simulated law school bar exam, ranking in the top 10% of test takers.

However, the previous version, GPT-3.5, performed poorly, falling into the bottom 10%.

GPT-4 may now execute the following functions:

  • 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.


GPT-4 is the most recent addition to OpenAi’s extensive language model.

The model is trained on large volumes of web data in order to produce unique and engaging replies to user inputs.

The most recent version is now accessible, but customers must sign up for a waitlist.

GPT-4 is already being gradually integrated into a number of third-party applications, including Microsoft’s future AI-powered Bing.

Microsoft issued a statement on Tuesday expressing its delight over the upgraded 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.”

Users have been delighted with OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology since its introduction in November 2022.

ChatGPT has been praised for its capacity to generate unique stories, essays, and song lyrics depending on user input.

Despite its innovative nature, ChatGPT has prompted certain concerns.

AI chatbots in general have been criticized in recent weeks for the following reasons:

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

Hallucinations, according to AI specialists, occur when AI systems provide a constructed result that appears convincing but has no real-world basis for its answer.

Microsoft and Google have notably been criticized for their AI products generating hallucinations.


Although GPT-4 has been improved, the upgraded technology still has the same restrictions as prior GPT versions.

On Tuesday, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman revealed the upgrade via a series of tweets.

“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 announcement comes just two weeks after OpenAI revealed that third-party firms now had access to ChatGPT tools.

The decision allows the chatbot to be linked into a variety of apps and services, including:

  • Instacart
  • Snap
  • Tutor app Quizlet

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

Since then, the technology has been integrated into the company’s products, most notably the search engine Bing.
