GPT-4 to Launch Next Week? It's Finally Here!

The moment we've been waiting for has finally arrived. GPT-4 is expected to launch officially next week and this time it's not just limited to text outputs. It's bigger than what we had imagined. GPT-4 will be the boost that AI has been looking for since the beginning of its experimental phases.

Open AI's GPT-4 is about to give a tough competition to Google through its multimodal nature and accuracy that is difficult to beat. But the question is, how do we know it's going to be a multimodal software? Well, this is not something we just made up, it's a revelation by Andreas Braun, CTO of Microsoft Germany himself. He has hinted that the official launch can be expected somewhere around March 15. This news has taken over the globe and people are now wondering what this new multimodal AI software is bringing with it?

Based on this news, assumptions are being made that GPT-4's multimodal nature will allow users to input images and maybe even videos to get an output with multiple possibilities. If this becomes true then we're surely about to witness something that has never been witnessed before. The previous versions of GPT (3.0 & 3.5) allowed only textual inputs and outputs. As far as GPT-4 is concerned, some German reports are claiming up to 4 modality levels. 

This means that GPT-4 might be able to support 4 different types of inputs: Text, Video, Audio and Images. This opens a gateway to infinite possibilities and outcomes. Along with this, Microsoft is also working on some metrics with the goal of improving reliability of it's AI software. This will help the tech giant to improve accuracy of the software, gaining confidence of users and attracting a larger base of loyal users. 

Kosmos-1: A multimodal language modal

While we were waiting for the unveiling of GPT-4, Microsoft has been testing a multimodal language called Kosmos-1. This language was released in the beginning of March 2023 and is currently being experimented for multiple scenarios. 

The modal aims to differentiate between multiple types of input (images, text etc.) and then come up with an output which makes sense for the users. Then modal might go on to analyze inputs and provide an analysis based on it. So for example, if a user inputs an image file, the software can draw a conclusion without the need of any textual input. Isn't this cool?

Furthermore, GPT-4 will make use of inputs from all across the globe to provide outputs to users. GPT-4 supports multiple languages so it doesn't matter if you're typing in French, Urdu or English, GPT-4 might be able to answer all your queries regardless. 

What are my thoughts on this?

The era of artificial intelligence began as we entered the year 2023. The focus of tech giants is now to make use of AI in their products and services. Introduction of GPT-4 is just a small part that will contribute in the future of AI. All of this might seem huge right now but 5 or maybe 10 years down the lane, this will all seem tiny because we're headed towards a future where AI is embedded everywhere. 

This is just the beginning of greater things waiting ahead and we're lucky to witness all this in our life (or maybe unlucky, time will tell!). Keep visiting BlogiTalk for more interesting content and don't forget to share your feedback with us.
