True Multimodality in AI: The Next Big Leap

At Nvidia's recent conference, they showcased a future where AI can use any input to create any output. This is called true multimodality. One example of this is GPT-4.o, a model that can handle different types of data like text, images, audio, and 3D objects all at once.

When GPT-4.o was launched, they included a web page showing off its abilities. This page had examples of how the model could create posters, turn photos into characters, and even summarize long videos. You could upload a 45-minute lecture, and the model would give you a neat summary. It can also handle meeting notes with multiple speakers and create 3D objects and rotate them in real time.

Google is also jumping into the multimodal game. They have a new AI studio where you can upload audio, images, and videos up to an hour long. While it’s not perfect yet, it shows the direction things are heading. Soon, you won’t just use text and images; you’ll use videos and audio too.

There's another exciting feature: personalization. Right now, this is only available to a few users in the USA. Personalization means the AI remembers your preferences, habits, and even facts about you. For example, if you ask the AI for a restaurant suggestion, it will remember your food likes, allergies, and even your fitness goals. This makes the AI much more helpful in your daily life.

Imagine asking an AI what to eat and getting a personalized answer. If you’re a gym-goer looking to build muscle, it may suggest a protein-rich meal. The more data you give the model, the better it can serve you. This level of personalization is expected to roll out to more regions soon, making AI even more useful.

These advancements in AI are set to change how we interact with technology. Multimodal models like GPT-4.o and Google’s AI studio mean we can use any type of data to get the answers we need. Personalization will make these interactions feel more tailored and helpful. The future of AI is not just about smarter machines but also about making our lives easier and more efficient.
