“OpenAI’s progress has, within just a few months, landed the technology industry in one of its most unpredictable moments in decades. Many industry leaders believe developments in A.I. represent a fundamental technological shift, as important as the creation of web browsers in the early 1990s. The rapid improvement has stunned computer scientists.”

CPT-4 is here, announced today by OpenAI, the company behind the GPT series that’s upended technology since its forerunner, ChatGPT, went public four months ago. The New York Times reports OpenAI has opened sales to businesses and developers wishing to build on top of the GPT-4 model.

The story quotes an OpenAI senior executive saying their newest model was trained on an “Internet scale” of English text.

Current capabilities are reported to include an ability to interpret pictures in words and vice versa. The Times reports that planning for future GPTs includes multiple media inputs and outputs.
