What is GPT-4?

Based on the remarkable accomplishments of its predecessors, GPT-2 and GPT-3, GPT-4 has appeared as real proof of OpenAI's relentless pursuit of innovation in the realm of NLP. The result of countless hours of rigorous research, sophisticated development and meticulous fine-tuning, GPT-4 has redefined the boundaries of AI, securing its position as the most sophisticated human-like language model today.

At the heart of GPT-4 lies a complex and powerful neural network architecture fueled by an extensive corpus of training data sourced from diverse and broad text repositories. This unparalleled combination enables GPT-4 to comprehend, generate and manipulate human language with a level of precision and fluency that has never been seen before. After only a few hours of use, I could tell that GPT-4's ability to engage in nuanced and meaningful linguistic interactions sets it apart from previous models and pushes the limits of what we once thought possible in the AI world.

It's essential to understand that GPT-4's prowess is not a coincidence or a happy accident. Instead, it's the culmination of years of dedicated research and the concerted efforts of a team of experts working together to refine and perfect the model's capabilities. For example, compared to its predecessor, GPT-3, which comes with 17 gigabytes, the latest GPT-4 boasts a significant increase in training data with a whopping 45 gigabytes. With this expanded dataset, GPT-4 can generate even more precise and accurate results, increase your productivity compared to its predecessor and set the stage for even more advanced AI capabilities. The result is a language model that brags unparalleled versatility, adaptability and an extraordinary ability to mimic human-like conversation, heralding a new era of possibilities for both individuals and industries across the globe.

New features and improvements of GPT-4

  1. Enhanced comprehension: GPT-4's improved understanding of context and semantics allows it to generate more accurate, relevant, and coherent responses. This has significantly reduced the likelihood of producing irrelevant or nonsensical text. In my opinion, this is the biggest improvement you should expect when upgrading to the new model.
  2. Multilingual capabilities: GPT-4 has expanded its linguistic repertoire, now supporting a broader range of languages with improved fluency, making it even more versatile and accessible to users worldwide. I have tried the new model with some languages other than English, and the results were better than with GPT-3.
  3. Real-time adaptation: GPT-4's ability to learn and adapt in real-time based on user inputs enables it to provide better-tailored responses, fostering more engaging and personalized interactions.
  4. Photo-friendly model: GPT-4's amazing new feature allows it to understand and utilize images, elevating its capabilities beyond just text-based interactions by incorporating state-of-the-art computer vision techniques and extracting key elements and context from images. Just imagine what you could do with that.
  5. Safety first: OpenAI has implemented robust safety features to minimize harmful and untruthful outputs, addressing concerns raised during the deployment of previous models. That being said, GPT-4 will refuse many more requests than the 3 or 3.5 model, thanks to a better understanding of obeying the rules.
  6. Fewer requests, more outcomes: This new feature greatly expands the potential applications of GPT-4, allowing it to tackle more complex tasks and provide users with richer, more nuanced information. The ability to produce longer answers showcases GPT-4's advanced capabilities and enhances its value as a versatile and indispensable tool in various fields and industries. Previously, you could expect to receive 600-1,500 words per request on average, but now you can get at least three to four times more words and beyond that.

How to use GPT-4

The potential implements of GPT-4 are tremendous and contain many industries. Here are just a few examples I could think of:

  1. Customer support: GPT-4 can provide faster, more accurate and more personalized assistance to customers across various industries, streamlining support services and improving overall customer experience. If GPT-4's API and fine-tuning are implemented, imagine what customer support will look like in the coming future.
  2. Content creation: GPT-4's advanced language capabilities can be harnessed to create high-quality content, including articles, blog posts, and social media updates. Moreover, the digital content, content creator and even the book industries may undergo a revolution due to its much longer outcome generation capabilities.
  3. Translation services: GPT-4's multilingual capabilities can be employed to provide faster and more accurate translation services. Implementing this technology using a mic or earphone on a mobile translation device (or smartphone) could break the language barrier between people worldwide.
  4. Education: Although some may hold opposing views on this matter, I am convinced that AI will play a significant role in shaping the future of human education. Although the technology may not have reached its full potential just yet, its ongoing development and progress promise to revolutionize how we learn and acquire knowledge in the years to come. GPT-4 can be used to develop personalized learning tools, tutor students in schools and even grade assignments, revolutionizing how education is delivered.
  5. Healthcare assistant: While it is unlikely that GPT-4 will supplant medical doctors soon, its integration into healthcare assistant systems has the potential to profoundly transform how we approach patient care. By leveraging GPT-4's advanced NLP capabilities and ever-growing knowledge base, healthcare assistants can provide personalized support, guidance and information to both patients and medical professionals. This can help streamline various aspects of healthcare, from triaging and preliminary diagnostics to medication management and post-treatment follow-ups.
