OpenAI released GPT-4 today, with some observers going so far as to say it’s the “iPhone moment” for AI.
What is meant by this is nothing other than the mass adoption of AI technology, with as yet unimagined consequences for our daily lives.
So let’s take a closer look at the new achievements of the recent news.
GPT-4: What It Is
When you try to use ChatGPT these days you often get the message “ChatGPT is at capacity right now”. Despite modern cloud architecture and million dollar sponsors, this shows one thing: The interest in ChatGPT is still high.
I covered the Chatbot ChatGPT in another article, which you might want to read.
However, ChatGPT is just one product of many based on GPT-4. So what is GPT-4?
GPT-4 is the newest (fourths) iteration of large language models from OpenAI.
The GPT language models are the basis for several products of OpenAI. Examples are the famous chatbot ChatGPT or the digital art AI Dall-E (WALL-E + Dali), which creates any image for you based on your description (text to image).
The latest version 4 now brings some innovations that have the experts in a frenzy.
Implications for AI Adoption of GPT-4
Already the existing version of ChatGPT, which is based on GPT-3 has caused a lot of furor. The reason for this was, on the one hand, remarkably clever answers to almost every topic.
On the other hand, the abilities to write whole texts, to write code or to give tips were also impressive.
Recently, however, GPT-4 can process not only text as input, but also photos or a combination of photos and text. A great many scenarios can be implemented here. Starting from simple questions like who is the person in the photo, to deriving recipes, color combinations and much more.
The following tweet shows how GPT-4 programs a fully functional website from a sketch with a request to create a website. This is mindblowing and gives a hint of the possibilities.

It’s the coolest thing I’ve *ever* seen in tech.
If you extrapolate from that demo, the possibilities are endless.
