As seen from its name, GPT-4 is a replacement and a complement to its predecessor product GPT-3.5, which is now a component of the ChatGPT.
GPT-4 is available starting March 19, 2023, to OpenAI paid users via ChatGPT Plus; with user limits, developers can register on a waiting list to access the API (Application Programming Interface).
OpenAI claims its latest model is more creative and collaborative than the previous series and can solve complex problems more accurately. It can parse text and image input, although it can only respond via text.
However, OpenAI also warns that this system may still have similar problems with the previous model, such as a tendency to make up information and hallucinate and possibly produce the exact coarse text as the last model language.
The leading technology company added that it has partnered with several companies to integrate GPT-4 AI technology into its products, including Dualingo, Stripe, and Khan Academy.
The following is a detailed summary of the differences between GPT-4 and GPT-3.5.
1. GPT-4 Accepts Image Input
As previously mentioned, the most striking change in the latest language model, GPT-4, is that now it can receive images as input to recognize objects in pictures and analyze them to find relevant information, in contrast to GPT-3.5, which can only accept text inputs.
The latest version of the ChatGPT chatbot is even said to describe images quite well. This has been proven in the video by Be My Eyes; GPT -4 is proven to be able to explain patterns on dresses, identify plants, explain how to use specific machines in the gym, and translate labels to read maps.
2. GPT-4 Is Harder to Trick
Previous versions of chatbots were said to be very easy to trick; they tended to produce strange and explicit words for users quickly.
GPT-4 has been trained with more complex things and identifying ‘dangerous’ things. In its announcement, OpenAI emphasizes that the GPT-4 system is 82% less likely to respond to requests for prohibited content than its predecessor and 40% better at providing accurate responses than GPT-3.5.
Considering this, the new model is much better than its predecessor regarding factuality and accuracy.
3. GPT-4 Has a Larger Memory Capacity
GPT-4 has a larger memory capacity than previous versions, allowing systems to learn from more complex and significant amounts of data. GPT-4 processed and outputs significantly more text than earlier versions in testing.
It is well known that GPT-3.5 can only process 3000 words in one process while GPT 4 can process up to 25000 words in one operation, which is about eight times more than the previous version.
4. GPT-4 Has a Faster Processing Speed
GPT-4 is also known to have a faster processing speed than previous versions, which allows the system to generate text faster and more efficiently. This is undoubtedly very useful in increasing productivity and efficiency in various applications.
5. GPT-4 Can Produce More Multilingual Content
GPT-4 is said to have more promising language capabilities than previous versions.
In a test conducted to test its language skills, GPT-4 showed that it could answer thousands of multiple-choice questions accurately in 26 languages, from Italian to Ukrainian to Korean. This feature will undoubtedly be helpful for companies and organizations operating in multiple countries and speaking many languages other than English.
6. GPT-4 Has The Ability To Adjust To User Preferences
AI can modify behavior to suit user preferences. Users will be able to change the personality of this system with a specific tone and style to suit their needs better. This feature will undoubtedly benefit companies and organizations that want to produce content that fits their target audience.
In conclusion, GPT-4 is a unique artificial intelligence system with great features. In the next few years, GPT-4 will become an invaluable tool for various industries and organizations looking to produce better and more compelling content.
