- OpenAI unveiled major upgrades to ChatGPT and other products, including GPT-4 Turbo with a larger context window, knowledge through April 2023, and lower compute costs.
- New capabilities like text-to-speech, an assistant API, and prompt-based programming aim to make AI more accessible and customizable for users.
- OpenAI introduced Copyright Shield to protect developers from copyright claims and cover associated costs, showing their commitment to users.
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman kicked off the company’s first-ever developer conference on Monday with several exciting announcements about upgrades to existing products like ChatGPT. The keynote speech gave an inside look at the latest capabilities of generative AI models and how OpenAI plans to make them more accessible.
GPT-4 Turbo Launches
Altman revealed that ChatGPT now runs on GPT-4 Turbo, an enhanced version of GPT-4 with a 128,000 token context window, knowledge through April 2023, and lower compute costs. GPT-4 Turbo allows for more accurate, extended conversations and includes a new JSON mode for easier API integration.
More Human-Like Chatbot Interactions
OpenAI demoed new text-to-speech capabilities that enable more natural conversations with ChatGPT. Users can now speak prompts and hear responses in a choice of six voices. The assistant API also entered public beta, bringing affordable speech processing and advanced image generation to developers.
Empowering Non-Coders Through Prompt-Based Programming
For those without coding experience, OpenAI introduced prompt-based programming. This allows users to configure GPT models by simply having a natural language conversation. The goal is to make AI more accessible for building customized solutions.
Copyright Shield Protects Developers
On the legal front, OpenAI announced Copyright Shield to defend developers against copyright claims and cover any costs that arise. This shows the company’s commitment to protecting users as AI faces ongoing questions around copyrighted training data.
The Future is Bright
Altman closed by saying that the innovations announced today will seem basic compared to what OpenAI will unveil in 2024. With upgrades like GPT-4 Turbo and prompt programming, the company aims to make AI smarter, more personal, and customizable in the years ahead.
OpenAI’s first ever Dev Day marked an exciting milestone, with major improvements to ChatGPT and new tools that will empower both expert developers and casual users. With generative AI advancing so rapidly, it’s clear that OpenAI will continue exploring how models like GPT-4 can interact with and understand the world in increasingly human ways.
