The announcement that GPT-4 will be released the following week by Microsoft Germany’s CTO, Andreas Braun, has sparked excitement in the AI community.
The ground-breaking large language model (LLM) series, which includes GPT-4, allows machines to comprehend natural language, previously only available to humans. Braun claims that GPT-4 will provide novel opportunities, including video processing and multimodality, enhancing the models’ breadth.
Heise, a German news site, attended an AI in Focus: Digital Launch event where the announcement was made. Marianne Janik, CEO of Microsoft Germany, spoke at the occasion and underlined the value creation potential of AI. She also described a historical turning point, calling the current AI development and GPT-4 “an Apple iPhone moment.” She said businesses should concentrate on properly preparing their staff to use AI and that disruptions do not always result in job losses.
It’s anticipated that GPT-4 will be integrated into Microsoft’s products, just as the company has been doing with AI in its products like Teams. The AI model could improve Bing Chatbot and is probably accessible through OpenAI’s API.
To commercialize OpenAI’s technology and compete with Google in the AI arms race, Microsoft paid $10 billion for a 49% stake. With a significantly broader context window, increased reliability, and new emergent features, GPT-4 is anticipated to be a major advance over GPT-3.5. GPT-4 may perform well beyond the text and into sensory modes, as shown by Google’s PALM-e, which has previously shown the advantages of integrating picture interpretation modes with LLMs.
The CEO of Microsoft’s remarks reflect a growing understanding of the potential of AI in the corporate world, with organizations looking to use the technology increasingly to increase productivity and simplify operations. We may anticipate more improvements in LLMs and multimodal models as the sector develops, opening up new options. A significant milestone in advancing AI technology, GPT-4’s impending arrival will spark much attention.
