There are several new features and improvements OpenAI presented on the occasion of first conference dedicated to developers on Monday 6 November. It was definitely the one who stole the show at DevDay GPT-4 Turbo which, as you can easily guess from the name, is nothing more than a perfected version of what, at least until the day before yesterday, was known as the most advanced model of artificial intelligence, GPT-4.
Basically, according to the company, the new generation of GPT-4 it should be more powerful and cheaper, drawing on a more up-to-date knowledge base. But let’s find out what GPT-4 Turbo offers and briefly review all the announcements that dotted the day.
Features and prices of GPT-4 Turbo
GPT-4 Turbo looks like one generative artificial intelligence tool able to predict the probability that a word will occur within a sentence based on semantic context. This is thanks to the training phase during which he was able learn from a huge amount of data from the web.
The new deadlinewhich for GPT-4 corresponded to September 2021, for the Turbo version it coincides with the month of April 2023. This means that you should be able to answer more accurately questions regarding events that have occurred up to that date.
Specifically, GPT-4 Turbo offers a version that takes care of analyze textual content and another that is capable of also understand the images. The company has reported plans to widely release both models over the next few weeks.
Speaking of prices, 1,000 input tokens (which correspond to approximately 750 words), those that are fed to the model, cost 0.01 dollars. While the same amount of raw text output bits, i.e. those generated by the AI model, are $0.03.
As for the images it depends on the size. To give an example, a 1080×1080 pixel image will cost $0.00765. OpenAI said the mission was optimize performance to offer GPT-4 Turbo at up to three times less.
Now you can create your own GPT and put it on display
Perhaps the most interesting announcement of DevDay concerns the possibility for users to create custom versions of ChatGPT for fun or productivity simply through the use of prompts and therefore, without the need to be expert developers.
Companies will be able to develop an AI bot for internal use, drawing on company knowledge. Developers, however, will have the opportunity to connect GPTs to databases or knowledge sources to import information from outside.
It doesn’t end there, because OpenAI has made it known that it intends to allow users to publish these AI bots within a marketplace, the GPT Store. Initially, the green light will be given to the creations of certified manufacturers. And perhaps the most popular GPTs will also receive compensation.
API Assistants and Code Interpreter alongside developers
Another novelty concerns theAPI Assistants which will allow developers to bring to life real assistants within the applications who respond to specific instructions, can obtain knowledge from outside and leverage OpenAI’s generative tools to carry out the tasks assigned to them. It could be a bot that analyzes data, assists with coding, or organizes vacations.
All this is made possible by Code Interpreter, the tool that writes and executes Python code which powers the API. It is not new to ChatGPT fans. In fact, it was announced in March. What it can do is generate graphs and tables and process files, allowing assistants created with the API to solve coding and math problems. These assistants can then be refined with knowledge external to OpenAI models, incorporating information about a company’s own products or documents.
More OpenAI DevDay announcements
After the introduction in ChatGPT and Bing Chat AI, now DALL-E 3, OpenAI’s text-to-image AIis available in the form of an API and like the previous version, incorporates moderation tools to prevent users from using it inappropriately. Each image generated costs $0.04. One was also presented nuova API text-to-speech available in six different voices at $0.015 per 1,000 characters. Finally, the next gen of the Whisper large v3 speech recognition template.
Still on the hot topic of copyright, OpenAI has launched a program that protects companies that use its AI products from claims. Is called Copyright Shield and expects the company to bear legal fees if customers using the developer platform e ChatGPT Enterprise are called into question for infringement of intellectual property.
