The latest update for the popular AI program, ChatGPT-4 has dropped, with new features that allow for image inputs. This means that images can now be uploaded in order to generate responses.
Available to users on a waitlist for free, or to subscribers for $20 a month, the new features from OpenAI will allow users to generate output from images, including captions, explanations, and discussion.
As OpenAI puts it: “We’ve created GPT-4, the latest milestone in OpenAI’s effort in scaling up deep learning. GPT-4 is a large multimodal model (accepting image and text inputs, emitting text outputs) that, while less capable than humans in many real-world scenarios, exhibits human-level performance on various professional and academic benchmarks.”
“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.”
However, OpenAI is quick to point out that the tool isn’t flawless, following an integration with Microsoft’s Bing search engine that resulted in users reporting “unhinged” results.
The tech firm admits that ChatGPT-4 still has limitations and could still show “hallucinations, and adversarial prompts” saying, “We encourage and facilitate transparency, user education, and wider AI literacy as society adopts these models. We also aim to expand the avenues of input people have in shaping our models.”
