Microsoft launches ChatGPT-4 next week
Microsoft has remained at the forefront of artificial intelligence technology and it looks like that trend will continue with the upcoming release of ChatGPT 4, the language module that powers the popular AI tool ChatGPT. The update is expected to be released by the technology giant sometime next week, possibly rekindling interest in the much-discussed AI tool.
Microsoft Germany CTO Andreas Braun announced at an AI kickoff event that the new ChatGPT 4-language model would introduce “multimodal models” that will offer new capabilities. As quoted by Heise, Braun specified that the model would have the capacity to create AI-generated videos based on textual prompts. “We will introduce GPT-4 next week … we will have multimodal models that offer completely different capabilities – videos, for example,” he claimed. Therefore, with GPT-4, it would be possible to generate text, images and even videos.
The technologist highlighted the potential of large language models such as GPT and considered it a “game changer” because of its ability to understand “natural language” and deliver conversational responses. GPT-4 can likely be used to enhance ChatGPT and Microsoft services powered by Bing AI.
Currently, ChatGPT is limited to answering user questions in text format. However, an upcoming update is expected to bring a new interactive experience. Heise’s report also indicates that “multimodal AI” such as GPT-4 could surpass standard text-to-image translation and could be used to create music and videos with minimal input.
Microsoft has yet to further confirm the unveiling of GPT-4 next week, although the company is planning a virtual meeting on March 16 on the “Future of Work Reinventing Productivity with AI” with CEO Satya Nadella.
