OpenAI releases GPT-4o: A swift and no-cost AI model accessible to all users

PTC News Desk: OpenAI made available to all users a more advanced and human-like version of the artificial intelligence engine that powers its well-liked generating tool ChatGPT on Monday.

The major product update from OpenAI arrived one day ahead of Google's anticipated disclosures regarding Gemini, the search engine behemoth's AI tool that directly rivals ChatGPT.


"We're very, very excited to bring GPT-4o to all of our free users out there," Chief Technology Officer Mira Murati declared during the eagerly awaited San Francisco launch ceremony. Over the coming weeks, OpenAI plans to integrate the new model GPT-4o—the "O" stands for omni—into its products. The tool will be available to paid users with unrestricted access.

According to the business, the model could produce material and comprehend text, speech, or visual commands.

"I've never used a better computer interface than the new voice (and video) mode. "It feels like a movie about AI," OpenAI CEO Sam Altman wrote on his blog. In the past, Altman has cited Scarlett Johansson's role in the film "Her" as an influence on his vision for AI interactions.

"Talking to a computer has never felt really natural for me; now it does," he stated.

During the virtual event, Murati and OpenAI engineers showcased the enhanced capabilities of GPT-4o, presenting obstacles for the ChatGPT chatbot.

During the demo, the spoken ChatGPT was asked questions by OpenAI employees, and it answered with humor and conversation akin to that of a human. The bot guided a user through a challenging algebra problem, translated faces, and functioned as an interpreter from English to Italian.

The business claimed that GPT-4o created new industry standards for multilingual talks, audio, and vision, and has the same capabilities as the prior version in terms of text, reasoning, and coding intelligence.

In one example, ChatGPT was able to interpret the environment of an employee using a smartphone camera and spoke in a feminine, amiable voice that was reminiscent of the AI bot from the movie "Her".

You appear to be in some sort of production or recording setup, complete with lights and tripods, from what I can tell. "It looks like you're getting ready to record a video or share something," the ChatGPT bot asked.

"Take your time"

It was widely expected in the last few weeks that OpenAI would launch an AI-enhanced internet search tool to rival Google's search engine, but Altman declared on Friday that this would not be the case.

The GPT-5 debut was anticipated by observers as well, but Altman stated last week that his company will "take our time on releases of major new models."

As a result of the AI arms race, which has seen OpenAI sponsor Microsoft overtake Apple as the largest firm in the world by market capitalisation, this event is merely the most recent development. The battle to be the leading player in generative AI is fierce between OpenAI, Microsoft, and Google; however, Facebook's parent company Meta and upstart Anthropic are also making significant strides to contend.

The corporations are frantically trying to figure out how to pay for the astronomical costs of generative AI, much of which are attributed to the chip giant Nvidia and its potent GPU processors.

When the new model is made available to all users, concerns regarding whether or not regular users are willing to pay a subscription may arise, casting doubt on OpenAI's strategy for being profitable.

Up until recently, users could only obtain free versions of OpenAI or Google's chatbots that performed poorly. On his blog, Altman stated, "We are a business and will find plenty of things to charge for."

Publishers and artists are putting pressure on AI producers as well; they want payment for any content that goes into training the models.

OpenAI is embroiled in a significant legal dispute with The New York Times, despite having inked content deals with the Financial Times, Axel Springer, and the Associated Press. In US courts, authors, singers, and artists have also filed separate claims against AI corporations.
