GPT-4 Turbo set to up the game for artificial intelligence apps.
On November 6, Open AI hosted their very first cyber developer conference in San Francisco, and unveiled their new GPT-4 Turbo language model to the assembled throng. The new model is essentially an updated, improved version of the GPT-4 model released by the company last March.
The new Turbo model has an expansive database backed up to April 2023, a significant improvement on its predecessor whose database expired in September 2021.
Although no specific time frame was given, Open AI have given every intention for Turbo to be production-ready and affordable for mass use within the next couple of months.
Open AI have said that the new Turbo model has an impressive 128K context window, giving it the equivalent of over 300 pages of text for a single prompt. With an enlarged context window, GPT will be able to deliver a more thorough, thoughtful, and comprehensive analysis and response to any given prompt command.
Additionally, Open AI has unveiled a legal immunity for copyright through the new Turbo model via their attached Copyright Shield program, effectively mirroring what the likes of Microsoft and Apple have already pioneered with their own respective AI language models.
