OpenAI‘s most advanced Generative Pre-Trained Transformer v4, GPT-4, was released on March 14, 2023. The company used a database of over 8 million web pages, translating to 180 trillion parameters. Compared to GPT-3, which was trained with 175 billion parameters, the company improved by 40% over its predecessor. Many individuals and highly-professional users have been using GPT-4 daily to boost their productivity.

Another aspect of OpenAI GPT-4’s functionality is similar to GPT-3. It uses deep learning and is based on the LLM model, which allows it to generate content in natural language by understanding and following the prompts submitted by users. This helps professionals and academic students to learn, discover, and understand complex concepts.

Improvements in GPT-4 compared to GPT-3

Many significant improvements have been made possible with the launch of GPT-4. GPT-4 can be in the top 10% this time, whereas GPT-3 was below 10%. It has a larger and more advanced LLM than GPT-3.5 (the accessible version of ChatGPT).

  • One of the significant changes and features is that users can now upload images alongside text prompts. Based on the image and text, GPT-4 will generate output.
  • The API for GPT-4 is available to a handful of users. However, anyone wanting to use the GPT-4 API must join the waitlist.
    • To get access to the GPT-4 API, head over to the GPT-4 API waitlist page.
    • From there, fill out the form with the required details.
    • Once you have filled it out, click the submit option to join the GPT-4 waitlist.
    • Keep an eye on your email to get notified once you have access to the GPT-4 API.
  • GPT-4 is more capable than the existing GPT-3.5. It is more reliable and creative. Not only that, but it is also capable of handling various tasks, as Microsoft has recently released the Windows Copilot to Windows Insider Developer Build.
  • Plugin support has been added to ChatGPT-4, making it possible to connect to the internet via Bing and use many plugins.

GPT-4 has become quite popular and used for commercial and personal purposes. ChatGPT comes with faster response compared to GPT-3, but you need a ChatGPT Plus subscription to get access to it. On top of this, OpenAI has extended the text prompt support up to 25,000, a significant upgrade over its predecessor.

How to Use OpenAI GPT-4

You can use GPT-4 to perform various tasks apart from generating content or asking questions to get answers in natural language. You can use this for language translation, text summarization, and question answering. It is also important to note that it comes with a cost of $20 per month to use the GPT-4 Model on ChatGPT.
