With ChatGPT we have been able to see first-hand how far artificial intelligence can go in a practical context. This engine is based on GPT-3, which was launched in 2020, but for months there has been talk of its successor, GPT-4. In fact, there is too much talk.
Sam Altman. This precocious and successful entrepreneur is responsible for OpenAI, the company that has developed GPT-3, DALL-E and ChatGPT. He knows better than anyone what to expect from GPT-4, and he’s had to come to the fore to try and temper expectations. He has done it in a recent meeting at the StrictlyVC event.
we are waiting too long. The CEO of OpenAI wanted to warn us that GPT-4 could end up being a huge disappointment given the high expectations many of us have for the successor to GPT-3. “People are crying out to be let down, and that’s what will happen”
strong artificial intelligence. Rumors suggest that GPT-4 could be a huge leap in this field and would bring us closer to that strong artificial intelligence that is the holy grail of this field (and which is currently only present in science fiction). Altman explained that “we don’t have that AI, and that’s what seems to be expected of us,” as if GPT-4 could be equated to human intelligence.
ridiculous rumors. And recent viral tweet He stated that in GPT-4 100 trillion parameters would be considered compared to the 175,000 million of GPT-3. Again Altman was blunt with those expectations and indicated that this data “is complete stupidity. The rumor mill about GPT-4 is ridiculous. I don’t know where they come from.”
GPT-4 will arrive when it is ready. Neither before nor after. The OpenAI CEO did not give details about the release date, simply explaining that “it will come at some point, when we are confident that we can launch it safely and responsibly.” While that moment arrives, yes, perhaps it is convenient to reduce expectations, just in case, as Altman says.
