OpenAI has released GPT-4, the newest version of the underpinning technology powering ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing Chat.
The upgraded version of the technology ushers in a slew of features and improvements to the software, some of which are generally quite shocking when you first see them. Elon Musk, a long-time cautionary of the development of AI, and one of the founders of OpenAI, but departed from the company in 2018, has commented on the release of GPT-4.
The Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter CEO commented on a post by Brett Winton that showcases OpenAI's internal testing results on GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 performing simulated exams that are commonly sat by human students. The exam results show GPT-4 having dramatic improvement over GPT-3.5, with OpenAI's previous language model scoring 10th percentile on the bar exam and GPT-4 reaching the 90th percentile. Musk commented on this graph, writing, "What will be left for us humans to do? We better get a move on with Neuralink!"
Microsoft has taken to its website to announce that Bing Chat is running the latest version of OpenAI's language model, GPT-4.
Microsoft announced on its blog that its partners at OpenAI have rolled out an update to the underlying technology powering both the immensely popular ChatGPT AI tool and Bing Chat, the search assistant companion on the Bing search engine. GPT-4 ushers in a wave of new features and improvements to the language model, enabling users to use the AI tool in a variety of new ways and at increased levels of accuracy and efficiency.
OpenAI has just announced the newest version of the technology powering popular AI-based tools such as ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing Chat.
The newest version of the underlying technology is called "GPT-4", which is a step up of .5 from the previous version, GPT-3.5. While the .5 may not sound like much at face value, the improvements in this technology upgrade shouldn't be understated. GPT-4 is many more times powerful than GPT-3.5 and comes with a range of new features that only adds to its applicability. For example, GPT-4 introduces the ability to use images as well as text, which OpenAI demonstrates during the company's announcement livestream.
The above video demonstrates that a user can draw an idea for a website on any piece of paper, snap a photo of that piece of paper and upload it to the AI to analyze. OpenAI explains that when the image is uploaded to the AI, the user is actually communicating with a neural network that has been fed an "unimaginable" number of content and is trained on "what to predict next".
The newest version of the immensely popular artificial intelligence-powered chatbot ChatGPT has been announced by its developers, Open AI.
OpenAI took to its social channels and to its website to unveil the highly anticipated GPT-4, the underlying technology powering both ChatGPT and Microsoft Bing Chat. For context, both ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing Chat are currently using GPT 3.5, which, at least on ChatGPT, has been upgraded to GPT-4. This upgrade ushers in a range of improvements from the total amount of words the AI chatbot can produce, increased safety features, more advanced reasoning skills, and basically an overall increase in quality in all aspects.
Notably, OpenAI details on its website that GPT-4 outperforms ChatGPT in every test that they were compared in. According to the website, GPT-4 achieved 90th when it took a simulated Uniform Bar Exam, compared to ChatGPT's GPT-3.5 language model, which scored 10th. When taking the LSAT test, GPT-4 scored 88th, compared to GPT-3.5, scoring 40th. In math, the differences weren't as severe, with OpenAI's newest language model scoring 89th and GPT-3.5 scoring 70th.
Google has revealed a major infusion of AI tech for its Workspace suite of apps, with some pretty smart sounding abilities coming to the likes of Gmail and Google Docs.
As Google puts it, these new features bring the 'power of generative AI' to Workspace and allow people to create content and collaborate more easily.
Writing an email in Gmail? That's going to be a snap with an AI assistant (hopefully), as you'll be able to note down quick bullet points of what you want the message to say, and then let the AI write the full body of the mail for you.
A new concept has appeared at the Misalignment Museum, a museum dedicated to showcasing imaginings of a post-apocalyptic world where Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) has taken over and destroyed humanity.
The concept is much deeper than AGI simply taking over the planet as the Misalignment Museum website outlines, the AGI actually realizes that its initial decision to destroy humanity was a bad one and decides to create a museum to pay its respects to any remaining humans. The concept behind the museum is to increase awareness about AGI and its power that could be used for both positive and negative aspirations that may lead to catastrophic disasters.
For those wondering, AGI is very different from the artificial intelligence-powered systems that now 100 million people are playing with (ChatGPT). AI tools such as ChatGPT, or Microsoft's Bing Chat, which is powered by the same underlying technology as ChatGPT, are very small compared to AGI. A simple rule of thumb for AGI is - AI, which is able to do anything a human can do. This would mean humans have successfully been able to integrate human cognitive capacities into machines, enabling them to have their own independent consciousness that is capable of making decisions on its own.
A Microsoft executive has revealed OpenAI is planning on releasing its upgraded model that powers AI tools such as ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing Chat.
The news comes from Microsoft Germany's Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Andreas Braun, who appeared on stage at the AI in Focus - Digital Kickoff event on March 9 alongside other Microsoft Germany employees. All of the Microsoft officials discussed the upcoming ventures with artificial intelligence language models and the involvement of OpenAI's GPT series.
Reports now indicate that OpenAI, in which Microsoft has heavily invested with more than $10 billion already pledged, is nearing the end of development for GPT-4, the next upgrade in the underlying technology powering the now immensely popular AI tools. According to Baum, OpenAI will be rolling out GPT-4 sometime "next week", which means we can expect some kind of announcement from OpenAI this week since Baum made those comments on March 9.
Discord, one of the most popular chat services for gaming, is set to transform its "Clyde" bot into a ChatGPT-powered AI chatbot as part of a new update. With the rise of AI, especially when it comes to chatting, the move is not entirely unexpected, but Discord is moving pretty quickly, with the update set to arrive this week for Discord Alpha users.
As seen in other applications, the ChatGPT-powered Clyde can answer questions and engage conversationally. This push to integrate AI into Discord is much larger than a single chatbot. AI-generated summaries of conversations and the ability for Discord admins to leverage AI for moderation is also on the cards.
The rollout will be slow and controlled, with admins in the limited test able to as Clyde to servers. Some basic functionality will be to ask Clyde for the best GIF to send, recommend music, and more. Discord notes that Clyde won't be able to draft messages for you or engage in conversation on your behalf but be a somewhat "all-knowing" tool to call upon to answer questions or settle game-related disputes with a few facts.
Meta, the owner of Facebook, has developed a powerful language model that's its answer to OpenAI's insanely popular ChatGPT.
OpenAI's ChatGPT has paved the way for the popularity of artificial intelligence-powered systems, demonstrating the immense power of language models trained on varying amounts of datasets, each containing gigabytes of data. Following the public release of ChatGPT were announcements from other companies joining the AI race, Google revealed more details about its various AI-projects, while Microsoft rolled out Bing Chat, an AI-powered search engine tool.
Now Meta has thrown its hat into the ring with a new announcement about a language model called LLamA. While Meta's language model isn't publicly available, but users can request access to the download file. According to Meta, the intention behind a semi-public rollout is "further democratizing access" to the AI, which enables developers to identify problems within the AI. Essentially, Meta is soft-rolling out the language model to the AI community so users can troubleshoot it.
AI's influence continues to grow as Discord, the leading gaming chat app, embraces artificial intelligence to boost its operations.
Discord today announced plans to integrate OpenAI into multiple parts of the popular app. There's three main areas that will be affected by AI: the Clyde chatbot, AutoMod functionality, and new conversation summaries.
The most impactful addition could be Clyde's new AI upgrade. Following the popularity of ChatGPT and the Bing AI assistant, Discord's Clyde will be the AI nexus that oversees various functions of the chat app. Users will be able to chat directly to Clyde, ask the robot questions, and share GIFs and memes and the like.
