GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) is a family of large neural language models trained by OpenAI to generate natural language text. The current largest model in the GPT family is GPT-3, which was released in 2020 and has 175 billion parameters.
What is GPT-4?
On the 14th of March 2023, GPT-4 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4) which is a multimodal large language model created by OpenAI has been released. It is the fourth in the GPT series and will be available via API and for ChatGPT Plus users.
It is the latest achievement in OpenAI’s deep learning scaling effort. GPT-4 is a large multimodal model (accepting image and text inputs and emitting text outputs), while less capable than humans in many real-world scenarios, outperforms humans on a variety of professional and academic benchmarks.
The distinction between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 can be subtle. GPT-4 is more reliable, creative, and able to handle much more nuanced instructions than GPT-3.5.
OpenAI tested on a variety of benchmarks, including simulating exams originally designed for humans, to understand the difference between the two models.
They then used the most recent publicly available tests (in the case of the Olympiads and AP free response questions) or purchased practice exams for the years 2022-2023.
However, there is no specific preparation for these exams. A minority of the problems in the exams were seen by the model during training, but it believes the results to be representative.
OpenAI wrote in their blog post announcing GPT-4 that “GPT-4 is more dependable, inventive, and capable of handling far more nuanced instructions than GPT-3.5.
“It can read, analyze, or generate up to 25,000 words of text per second, which represents a significant improvement over previous versions of the technology. According to the New York Times, GPT-4 improved its accuracy over GPT-3.5, gained the ability to summarise and comment on images, was able to summarise complicated texts, passed a bar exam and several standardized tests, but still had a tendency to hallucinate answers.
ChatGPT Plus subscribers will get GPT-4 access
According to OpenAI, ChatGPT Plus subscribers will have limited access to GPT-4 on chat.openai.com. In practice, they will adjust the exact usage cap based on demand and system performance, but they expect to be severely capacity constrained (though we will scale up and optimize over upcoming months).
Depending on traffic patterns, OpenAI may introduce a new subscription level for higher-volume GPT-4 usage; they also hope to offer some free GPT-4 queries at some point so that those without a subscription can try it as well.
According to OpenAI, the new model will generate fewer factually incorrect answers. In fact, the company claims that GPT-4 outperforms humans in many standardized tests.
GPT-4 is capable of producing captions, classifications, and analyses. It can also handle 25,000 words of text, allowing for content creation, extended conversations, and document search and analysis.
According to OpenAI, GPT-4 scored in the 90th percentile on a simulated bar exam, the 93rd percentile on a SAT reading exam, and the 89th percentile on the SAT Math exam. GPT-4’s limitations, such as “social biases,” hallucinations, and adversarial prompts, have been acknowledged by the company.
GPT-4 isn’t a huge step up from GPT-3.5, as the research firm admits, calling the new iterative version of its primary large language model. “The distinction between GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 can be subtle in casual conversation. When the task’s complexity reaches a certain threshold, the difference becomes apparent—GPT-4 is more reliable, creative, and capable of handling far more nuanced instructions than GPT-3.5,” OpenAI wrote in a blog post.
OpenAI hopes that GPT-4 will become a valuable tool in improving people’s lives by powering a variety of applications. There is still much work to be done, and they look forward to improving this model through the community’s collective efforts in building on top of, exploring, and contributing to the model.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ
What does GPT-4 do?
GPT-4 can generate text as well as accept image and text inputs, which is an improvement over GPT-3.5, which only accepted text, and performs at a “human level” on a variety of professional and academic benchmarks.
What does GPT AI mean?
GPT-3, or the third-generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a neural network machine learning model trained to generate any type of text using internet data. It was created by OpenAI and requires only a small amount of text as input to generate large volumes of relevant and sophisticated machine-generated text.
How much does GPT-4 cost?
So far, the new technology is not available for free. GPT-4 could be tried out on OpenAI’s subscription service ChatGPT Plus, which costs $20 per month.
Where can I use GPT-4?
GPT-4, like GPT-3, will be used for a variety of language applications including code generation, text summarization, language translation, classification, chatbots, and grammar correction.
What is the advantage of GPT?
GPT discs have significantly more storage space than MBR discs. Users have the option of creating multiple partitions. A GPT disc system can support up to 128 partitions. When compared to MBR’s limitation of only four primary partitions, the GPT disc system is a game changer.
Can I install GPT on BIOS?
A system with BIOS firmware can be configured to boot from a GPT disc, and vice versa. Because MBR discs are primarily BIOS booted, BIOS firmware and MBR discs are linked, and MBR, like BIOS, has several limitations.
