The Artificial Intelligence (AI) community is abuzz with excitement, as Microsoft Germany’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Andreas Braun announced that the company will be launching GPT-4, the fourth-generation large language model (LLM), next week.
This revolutionary technology enables machines to comprehend natural language, and GPT-4 will reportedly offer even more possibilities than its predecessors. Some of these include multi-modality, video processing, and faster responses.
During the “AI in Focus – Digital Kickoff” event held in Germany, Braun called GPT-4 a game-changer in AI. He believes that it will be another leap towards accurate human interpretation. The media outlet, Heise, was the first to report the announcement.
Marianne Janik, the CEO of Microsoft Germany, spoke about the potential for value creation with AI, saying that it does not necessarily lead to job losses. Instead, companies should focus on training their staff to use AI effectively.
Microsoft has been vocal about its plans to integrate AI into its products. Currently, Microsoft’s Teams, Bing, and Edge are equipped with ChatGPT. With GPT-4, Bing is expected to be more efficient with searching for information and providing faster results.
GPT-4 will likely have multimodal capabilities, allowing users to engage through multiple modes such as text, images, videos, and sounds. Unlike the previous generation, which was only capable of producing texts, GPT-4 will be a multimodal language model. Users may be able to manage the input and output of data in different languages.
One exciting development is that several reports have hinted that GPT-4 will be able to generate videos. OpenAI is reportedly working on a mobile app powered by GPT-4, which will give users the ability to create videos using AI assistance.
GPT-4 is also expected to produce responses faster than GPT-3.5. Reports suggest that the responses from the next-generation GPT-4 will be more human-like, and all the changes will be integrated into the Bing Chat in the future. While Microsoft Germany has not confirmed that GPT-4 will be integrated into Bing Chat, the company’s investment in Open AI makes it a possibility.
The launch of GPT-4 is eagerly anticipated, and it is expected to be a significant leap forward in AI technology. Microsoft’s continued investment in AI is expected to enhance the capabilities of its products, making them more efficient and effective. As GPT-4 is rolled out, it will be exciting to see how this technology will revolutionize the AI industry.
