GPT-4 update places ChatGPT on the course of becoming more 'human'
A statement by OpenAI says the model is more creative and collaborative than ever before as it would solve complex problems with greater accuracy.
The company behind the ChatGPT app, which creates essays, poems, or computing code on command, released on Tuesday an update of its artificial intelligence AI technology that it said would be safer and more accurate than its predecessor.
Ever since ChatGPT entered the scene in late November, GPT-4 was widely awaited. ChatGPT wowed its users with its capabilities that were originally based on an older version of OpenAI's technology.
"We've created GPT-4, the latest milestone in OpenAI's effort in scaling up deep learning," a company blog said, adding that the AI technology "exhibits human-level performance" on some professional and academic tasks.

The company issued a statement saying the model is more creative and collaborative than ever before as it would solve complex problems with greater accuracy.
With its new update, text responses will become more accurate. In the future, it will come from both image and test inputs, in a major leap in technology that has not yet been released.
For instance, if a user sends a picture of an inside of a refrigerator, GPT-4 will correctly identify what is in there and concoct what could be prepared with the presented ingredients.
Microsoft's adoption of ChatGPT sparked a race with Google which announced its own versions of the AI technology with Amazon.
OpenAI said the new version will be less likely to go off the rails as opposed to its previous chatbot.
"We spent six months making GPT-4 safer and more aligned. GPT-4 is 82 percent less likely to respond to requests for disallowed content and 40 percent more likely to produce factual responses," OpenAI said.
Robert Vesoul, CEO of Illuin Technology, a French AI start-up, questioned the safety of the measures taken by OpenAI to avoid responses on its system.
"I am not sure if I want an AI to block responses on unknown topics… Should an AI decide if I smoke or not?,” Vesoul told AFP.
