OpenAI has recently announced the general availability of GPT-4, its recent text-generating model, to everyone. According to the company, all existing OpenAI API developers “with a history of successful payments” can access GPT-4, while new developers will be able to access it at the end of the month.
In its blog post, the company wrote, “Millions of developers have requested access to the GPT-4 API since March, and the range of innovative products leveraging GPT-4 is growing every day. We envision a future where chat-based models can support any use case. ”
An improvement from GPT-3.5, GPT-4 can generate text (including code) and accept image and text inputs. The AI software will perform at “human level” benchmarks for all fields. GPT-4 was trained using publicly available data which also included public web pages and OpenAI licensed data.
The image-understanding feature of the new update isn’t available to everyone yet but OpenAI is testing it with Be My Eyes as a partner.
GPT-4, though more advanced than its predecessors, is still flawed and may gurgitate and hallucinate facts, makig reasonable errors with confidence. According to the blog, GPT-3 and its derivatives won’t be available after January 4, 2024, compelling developers using old models to manually upgrade.
“We will be providing support to users who previously fine-tuned models to make this transition as smooth as possible,” OpenAI wrote. “In the coming weeks, we will reach out to developers who have recently used these older models, and will provide more information once the new completion models are ready for early testing.”
