ChatGPT, as it was released to the public, was very impressive despite its various shortcomings as a text generator. However, the new GPT-4 update that OpenAI recently showcased makes the current version of ChatGPT look and feel obsolete. The new GPT-4 model, designed based on the GPT-3 and GPT3.5 protocols, performs its operations much quicker than the regular version of ChatGPT and has a long memory, enabling it to follow context for longer.
Having seen how the new updated version of ChatGPT or GhatGPT 2.0 performs, we observed that the new GPT-4 model absolutely thrashes the older version in several ways. Let’s take a look at five of these ways:
GPT-4 “Sees” and understands images and shapes
The biggest upgrade is that GPT-4 is “multimodal,” which means it can comprehend more than one form of information. ChatGPT and GPT-3 could only communicate in text: they could read and compose. GPT-4, on the other hand, can be given images, which it then analyses to discover pertinent information. Of course, you could simply ask it to explain what’s in an image, but its comprehension extends beyond that.
A good memory and an even better attention span
Because of costs and how much resource GPTs consume, Large Language Models are designed to have a limited scope of functionality. Most LLMs are trained on millions of websites, webpages, and other textual data. However, earlier GPT models had a very limited recollection of what they read, which was often represented in tokens. With GPT-4 having a maximum token count of 32,768 tokens, that’s about 64,000 words. What this means is that GPT-4-based models will rarely go incoherent. If we visualize your conversation as a book, a tool like ChatGPT will remember things from as back as 50 pages ago with great detail.
No fooling it twice
For everything that chatbots get right today, they also get a lot of things wrong, especially when you probe them towards breaking certain rules. They are easily misled. A little persuasion can convince them that they are simply describing what a “bad AI” would do, or some other little fabrication that allows the model to say all kinds of strange and honestly unsettling things. People even work together to create “jailbreak” cues that let ChatGPT and other chatbots like it go all out bonkers.
GPT-4, on the other hand, has been trained on a large number of malicious cues that broke ChatGPT last year. With these considerations in mind, the new model outperforms the previous generation in terms of “factuality, steerability, and refusal to go outside of guardrails.”
GPT-4, the linguist
Most chatbots we have seen up until now have been very fluent in just the English language because only data sets and language models in English were used to train GPT-3. However, the powers of large language models are relevant to any written language and should be made accessible in those as well.
GPT-4 makes a move in that direction by showing its ability to answer thousands of multiple-choice questions correctly in 26 languages.
GPT-4 is faster, smarter, and better
The new GPT-4 is faster, smarter, and better than its predecessors. It performs its operations much quicker than the regular version of ChatGPT and has a long memory, enabling it to follow context for longer. With GPT-4,
In addition to its ability to understand and communicate in multiple languages, GPT-4 also has the potential to revolutionize language translation. With its advanced comprehension capabilities, it could potentially make machine translation more accurate and reliable than ever before.
Finally, perhaps the most exciting aspect of GPT-4 is its potential for creative expression. GPT-3 already demonstrated impressive abilities to generate original and imaginative content, from poetry to fiction to music. But GPT-4 takes it to the next level.
With its advanced training and enhanced capabilities, GPT-4 could potentially create content that is indistinguishable from that of a human writer. This has incredible implications for industries such as advertising, marketing, and entertainment, where creativity is highly valued.
In conclusion, the new GPT-4 model represents a significant leap forward in the capabilities of large language models. With its advanced abilities in multimodal comprehension, memory retention, language translation, and creative expression, it outperforms its predecessors and establishes a new standard for natural language processing.
While it may be some time before we see GPT-4 fully integrated into our daily lives, the potential benefits are clear. As machine learning and AI continue to advance, the possibilities for what we can achieve with language models like GPT-4 are truly limitless.
