Open AI launched it’s first conversational AI model in November, which showed the world just some of the capabilities of artificial intelligence. In only 4 months, Open AI has developed their next iteration of their high-powered chat bot, Chat GPT-4.

GPT-4 now incorporates image inputs, enhances the previous theoretical foundations, and of course fixes some bugs. But this brief description understates the new functionality of the model. “In a casual conversation, the distinction between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 can be subtle. The difference comes out when the complexity of the task reaches a sufficient threshold—GPT-4 is more reliable, creative, and able to handle much more nuanced instructions than GPT-3.5.” For example, GPT-4 has excelled (compared to its predecessor) in many standardized testing forms.

This launch of GPT-4 has also excited the masses and has incited users testing out of some of the functionality. Within the first day, BETA users were reporting streamlined functionality within software engineering, UX/UI development, trading strategies, customer service, among many others.

Open AI released an enhanced version of their already “best-in-class” chatbot in 4 months. With GPT-5 already expected by the end of 2023, I predict much more advanced functionality (not just from Open AI) to be released in the coming months.
