Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, will be integrated with ChatGPT in the coming weeks, and it’s likely that the chatbot will work based on the GPT-4 language model. The latest OpenAI software reacts to questions much faster than the current version, and gives answers that are even more human-like.
OpenAI also plans to launch a ChatGPT mobile app and test a new feature in Dall-E that will generate videos using artificial intelligence.
The addition of ChatGPT to Microsoft’s products is likely to create new competition in Internet search: something that hasn’t happened since Google supplanted Yahoo as the most popular search engine. And while Google is preparing an answer (the company wants to demonstrate a version of its search engine with chatbot functions during 2023), it is GPT-4 that can help Bing move to the top.
GPT stands for “generative pre-trained transformer” and the same underlying technology as ChatGPT is hidden in the name, which can analyze a large set of data – which is why it is often called a “big language model”. The latest known version of the OpenAI software is called GPT-3, and its new, as-yet-unannounced version GPT-4 promises to be more efficient (ChatGPT can now search for an answer within minutes).
Gather your dream team and lead them towards a common goal.
In May 2020, Microsoft announced that it had built “one of the world’s top five supercomputers” — in partnership with and exclusively for OpenAI — to be used to train “extremely large artificial intelligence models”. The supercomputer had 285,000 processing cores and 10,000 graphics processors, each with a network connection of 400 gigabits per second.
The push to capitalize on the generative AI craze started by OpenAI and Microsoft has made it difficult for some companies to access Nvidia’s latest GPU with tensor cores H100 — specifically designed to run “transformers” like those used in GPT (currently $30,000 dollars)
All these improvements mean that OpenAI is building a moat around its product. Anyone can create software like OpenAI (in fact, Transformers was first invented by Google and was made open source), but only a few companies have access to supercomputers capable of running billions of parameters.
Now that OpenAI has opened its products to the public, it is receiving invaluable real-world feedback that will help it maintain its competitive advantage. In addition, users themselves make efforts to improve ChatGPT – every time we click the “like/dislike” button, the chatbot tries to find the perfect answer and thus learns from its mistakes.
Earlier it became known that Microsoft is investing $10 billion in OpenAI, and the startup has already hired contractors, including about 400 computer programmers around the world, who are working on improving the company’s tools for automating software development.
