Lore AI Issue #22: GPT-4 is here

The most-anticipated release in generative AI since the launch of ChatGPT is here: GPT-4. Not to mention Google announced AI is coming to Gmail, sheets, docs, meet, slides, and more. And – Runway is teasing a big announcement for later this week.

At Lore, we have an announcement too. Our eBook, published by a major tech company, is coming out very soon—possibly next week. And with how fast things are changing, we plan to work with them to release multiple editions.

We're incredibly excited about the future of AI and how it will change how we all work and live.

GPT-4 by OpenAI


Try It

Today marks the historical release of GPT-4, which has demonstrated the remarkable ability to achieve a top 10% score on the bar exam. In contrast, its predecessor, GPT-3.5, struggled on the same test, ranking in the lowest 10% of scores.

This revolutionary model is not only multi-modal, meaning it can understand and process text and images, but it's also capable of comprehending humor, such as chicken nugget memes.

One of the standout demonstrations showcased GPT-4's ability to transform a simple sketch into a fully functional website. While the resulting website wasn't perfect, it's clear that future iterations could enable users to create stunning websites using only text or images.

Currently, GPT-4 is accessible to the public through ChatGPT Plus and the OpenAI API, although multi-modal image functionality isn't available to the public yet.

While it may not have fully lived up to the "500x better" hype, GPT-4 is undeniably a giant leap forward, making it increasingly viable to use AI for work today. It now seems highly likely that a future version of GPT will serve as a building block for AGI when combined with other advanced models.

To dive deeper into GPT-4, we recommend reading the full paper.
