OpenAI’s Secret Announcements and Future Model Releases

OpenAI surprised many at the VivaTech event in Paris. The annual conference focuses on tech innovation and startups. It is one of Europe’s largest tech gatherings. This year, OpenAI shared some big news.

They showed a timeline of their models. It started with GPT-3 in 2021. Then, it moved to GPT-4 in 2023. But something new is coming in November 2024. They call it GPT Next, not GPT-5. This new model could change a lot of things.

GPT Next promises a big jump in model intelligence. This means it will be much smarter than GPT-4. This increase in intelligence means many industries could be affected. If the model is smarter, it can be used in more places and ways. For example, it could help with medical research or complex problem-solving.

OpenAI also talked about why they chose November 2024 for the release. The date is important because of the U.S. elections. OpenAI wants to make sure their models do not influence the elections. The company’s CTO, Mira Murati, said that they will not release anything that might affect global events like elections.

OpenAI aims to make their models faster and cheaper. They have already reduced the price of GPT-4 by 80% in one year. They believe lower costs will help more people use their technology.

Another interesting point was about the compute power they use. Back in 2020, they built a supercomputer for GPT-3. They compared it to the size of a shark. The next supercomputer, used for GPT-4, was as big as an orca. Now, they have a much bigger supercomputer, like the size of a whale. This large compute power will help build the new GPT Next model.

OpenAI is also focusing on creating multimodal AI. These are models that can understand and use multiple types of data, like text, images, and more. They showed some examples, like an AI that can act as a software engineer. This AI can write code and find information online.

Another example was an AI-powered drive-through system. It can take orders and understand multiple languages. This can improve customer service and make things run more smoothly.

So, what can we expect? It’s clear that OpenAI is pushing the limits. With GPT Next, they aim for smarter, more capable models. These models could bring big changes to many fields. From medicine to customer service, the impact could be huge. As we wait for November 2024, the world of AI keeps getting more exciting and promising.
