The model, according to the company, “can tackle challenging issues with better accuracy” and is “more creative and collaborative than ever before.” It is multimodal, i.e., it can interpret text and image input, but only responds in text.
Moreover, OpenAI warns that the systems still have many of the same issues as earlier language models, such as the propensity to “hallucinate” and the ability to produce offensive and violent material.
OpenAI claims to have already established partnerships with several businesses to include GPT-4 into their products, including Duolingo, Stripe, and Khan Academy. The new model powers Microsoft’s Bing chatbot and is accessible to the general public via ChatGPT Plus, OpenAI’s $20 per month ChatGPT membership. Developers will be able to access it as an API to build on.
The system’s performance on various assessments and benchmarks, including the Uniform Bar Test, LSAT, SAT Math, and SAT Evidence-Based Reading & Writing exams, is claimed to have demonstrated GPT-4’s advances. GPT-4 achieved results in the 88th percentile or higher on the exams indicated, and a complete list of exams and the system’s results may be found here.
