OpenAI Releases GPT-4: Everything You Need to Know
Listen to the Podcast:
The startup OpenAI has unveiled GPT-4, a potent new AI model that can comprehend both text and images, which it describes as “the latest milestone in its drive to scale up deep learning.”
What is ChatGPT-4?
New GPT-4, according to the business, “is a large multimodal model (accepting image and text inputs, outputting text outputs) that demonstrates human-level performance on numerous professional and academic standards, despite being less capable than humans in many real-world circumstances.”
What is the Difference Between ChatGPT 3.5 and ChatGPT-4?
If you look at OpenAI, “When speaking with a friend, it may be difficult to convey the subtle differences between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. At higher levels of challenge, GPT-4 separates itself from GPT-3.5 by being more trustworthy, creative, and adept at handling a wide range of complex instructions.” ChatGPT 3.5 was the version before ChatGPT 4, in case you were wondering. GPT-4 is superior to ChatGPT-3.5 since it generates text and accepts both text and images as inputs.
How Can I Access GPT-4 with ChatGPT+?
You will require a paid subscription to ChatGPT+, the premium edition of ChatGPT, if you wish to generate text freely with the GPT-4 model. Here’s how to do it:
As stated on OpenAI’s GPT-4 announcement page, GPT-4 is the model utilized by ChatGPT, but only if you are a premium user with access to ChatGPT+ (sometimes styled “ChatGPT Plus”). If you’re logged in to your OpenAI account, clicking the ChatGPT button on that page will take you immediately to ChatGPT, and if you’re a paid ChatGPT+ member, that’s all there is to it. Have a good time!
If you have a free membership, you will need to upgrade. In the left menu, click the “Upgrade to Plus” button.

It can handle 25,000+ words compared to only 3,000 with GPT-3.
It can use images as inputs, and it understands the context of the image.
It can become a true assistant, writing entire essays and understanding your writing style. pic.twitter.com/3YMJHreOcC

You’ll then get a popup explaining the benefits of the “Plus” upgrade.
The green “Upgrade Plan” button will take you to a typical e-commerce sales page, where you’ll provide the usual information and pay $20 each month.
When you become a paying subscriber, you will have immediate access to the updated model via ChatGPT. There will be no waitlist for you.
As you start a new chat, a pulldown menu will appear, giving you the option of using one of the older models or GPT-4. You should follow OpenAI’s warning that GPT-4 is slower than the others because the difference is significant.
ChatGPT-4 Can Read Images, Diagrams and Screenshots
Similar to the text-only setting, ChatGPT-4 can accept a prompt that combines text and graphics and lets the user pick any language or vision task. But, at the moment, it only produces text output (natural language, code, etc.) from inputs that include both interspersed text and graphics.
ChatGPT-4 is not Perfect, Says CEO
Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, stated that ChatGPT-4 “remains defective, remains constrained, and continues to appear more remarkable upon first use than it does with more extensive use.”
ChatGPT-4 Open to User Feedback
The company says it is making its “platform for automating analysis of AI model performance,” OpenAI Evals, freely available so that “anyone can report defects in our models and assist steer subsequent developments.”
ChatGPT-4 has Limitations
The GPT-4 has comparable restrictions to preceding GPT models despite its capabilities. Most crucially, it still has flaws in its reliability (it “hallucinates” data and commits logical mistakes), according to the business.
September 2021 Barrier Stays
ChatGPT 4 is based on its predecessor’s same canonical set of September 2021 data. To paraphrase what OpennAI had to say about GPT-4 in their blog post: “GPT-4 generally lacks knowledge of events that have occurred after most of its data cuts off (September 2021).
Google Search Rival Bing Running on ChatGPT-4
Microsoft also disclosed that Bing Chat uses the GPT-4 platform, a chatbot system it co-developed with OpenAI. “We congratulate our colleagues at OpenAI on the launch of GPT-4 today. We are pleased to announce that the latest version of Bing is powered by GPT-4, which we have tailored for search.
You have already used an early iteration of this potent model if you have used the new Bing preview at any point in the previous five weeks. Bing gains from advancements made by OpenAI as they apply to GPT-4 and beyond. You may be sure that you have access to the most complete copilot functionality available, along with our own improvements based on user input.”
Developers can join a waitlist to gain access to the API, while paid OpenAI users will be able to use GPT-4 starting on March 14 through ChatGPT Plus (with a usage cap). Although the company plans to scale up and optimize over the coming months, it expects to be severely capacity constrained. “We will alter the exact usage cap depending on demand and system performance in practice,” it added. The business also stated that it would “start inviting certain developers today and scale up progressively to balance capacity with demand” for API.
Companies Using ChatGPT-4
One of the first companies to use ChatGPT-4 is Stripe, which scans company websites and sends a summary to the customer support team. Khan Academy, Morgan Stanley, and Duolingo.
