Alert! MSM: new ChatGPT version, GPT-4 is new, and scary! 5 jaw-dropping things GPT-4 can do that ChatGPT couldn’t!

At its core, the biggest change to GPT-4 is its ability to work with photos that users upload.

One of the most jaw-dropping use cases so far came from an OpenAI video demo that showed how a drawing could be turned into a functional website within minutes. The demonstrator uploaded the picture into GPT-4 and then pasted the resulting code into a preview that showed how it could be a working website.

In its announcement, OpenAI also showed how GPT-4 was asked to explain a joke from a series of images — which featured a smartphone with the wrong charger — and described why it was funny. While it might sound straightforward, dissecting a joke is more complicated for artificial intelligence tools to pick up on because of needed context.

In another test, The New York Times showed GPT-4 a picture of the interior of a refrigerator and prompted it to come up with a meal based on the ingredients.

The photos feature isn’t live yet, but OpenAI is expected to roll it out in the upcoming weeks.

Coding made even easier
Some early GPT-4 users with very little to no prior coding knowledge have also used it to recreate iconic games such as Pong, Tetris or Snake after following step-by-step instructions provided by the tool on how to do so. Others have made their own original games. (GPT-4 can write code in all major programming languages, according to OpenAI.)

“The powerful language capabilities of GPT-4 will be used for everything from storyboarding, character creation to gaming content creation,” said Arun Chandrasekaran, an analyst at Gartner Research. “This could give rise to more independent gaming providers in the future. But beyond the game itself, GPT-4 and similar models can be used for creating marketing content around game previews, generating news articles and even moderating gaming discussion boards.”

The creators behind the increasingly popular ChatGPT tool unveiled a new version of the generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool, known as GPT-4, Tuesday. The updated version of OpenAI’s powerful AI represents the next level of what the company’s technology is capable of — from passing a range of tests with flying colors to accepting prompts from images.

But the tool still has its limitations, according to the company’s announcement. Here are five things to know about GPT-4.

GPT-4 accepts visual inputs

One of the most apparent changes with GPT-4, compared to the GPT-3.5 that was powering ChatGPT when it hit the public market in November, is that it accepts visual inputs alongside text.

That update means users can ask questions based on queries that use images.

In one example included in OpenAI’s announcement, a user asked “What is unusual about this image?” and included a photo of a man ironing while attached to a taxi cab.

GPT-4 responded, “the unusual thing about this image is that a man is ironing clothes on an ironing board attached to the roof of a moving taxi.”
