The Facts

  • OpenAI has announced the release of GPT-4, the latest product in the line of AI language models that already powers the likes of ChatGPT and Bing's chatbox.

  • GPT-4 became available on Wed. to OpenAI's paying users via ChatGPT Plus, and developers can sign up on a waitlist to access the API. The AI is able to generate text and accept image and text inputs, in contrast to its predecessor (GPT-3.5) which only accepted text.

The Spin

Narrative A

GPT-4 is a profound improvement from its predecessor and potentially opens the door to major advances in AI technology. The model has a longer output, is simply smarter and safer than OpenAI's previous models. While a lot will need to be proven over time, it seems that ChatGPT and Bing have just received a major upgrade.

Narrative B

While GPT-4 scores highly on a range of tests and OpenAI has forced many to rethink the potential of artificial intelligence, the language model still inherits the faults of its predecessors. The tendency to "hallucinate" incorrect information and exhibit social biases remain. Despite catching the public's attention, there is still a long way to go.
