‘GPT-4’ Explained: Here’s Everything You Need To Know About GPT-4

After the release of the innovative chatbot ChatGPT in November last year, it caused quite a stir, with agitations about soaking up some jobs in the market and clearing some of the toughest exams in the world with ease. Now in this scenario, GPT-4 has been announced, and the world is shaken again for a show. So what exactly is this GPT-4, and how beneficial is it going to be in the near future? What concerns do we have now about this latest AI mechanization? Stay tuned to this article, and you will get all the tea.

What Is GPT-4?

I guess it is time to say we bid adieu to the much-talked-about ChatGPT and take a bow before GPT-4, its successor that promises to be even more powerful in its capabilities. GPT-4 stands for the fourth version of OpenAI’s software, the “Generative Pre-Trained Transformer.” So it is OpenAI’s newly curated language model that can analyze a vast amount of information to generate human-like solutions to the user’s queries.

GPT-4 is an upgrade over the already-existing ChatGPT. It can process over eight times as many words as ChatGPT, so one can imagine how robust it is deemed to be.

One interesting fact about the GPT series is that OpenAI has been releasing versions of the GPT for over five years now. Its first release was in 2020 when GPT 1 had around 117 million parameters to work with. These parameters were the parts of the language model that defined its skill at handling a query, like generating text. So as the technology improved, they also leveled up with the parameters. For instance, GPT-2 had 1.5 billion parameters, and GPT-3 had 175 billion parameters. The November-released free version of the ChatGPT belonged to version 3.5.

How To Use GPT-4?

Users who have been using the free version of ChatGPT till now will need to have access to the paid subscription version of the site, ChatGPT+. So one needs to open up the ChatGPT site at The site will guide you to GPT-4 if you already have ChatGPT+. For free users, you need to select the option “Upgrade to Plus.” Once the payment is finalized, you can acquire full access to the premium chatbot GPT-4. However, you can avail of the version for free if you’re a Microsoft Bing user.

ChatGPT Vs. GPT-4

GPT-4 is supposed to be much better and improved over its predecessor, with OpenAI’s claim of having at least up to 25,000 words. It can understand even more refined queries from the user than the 3.5 technology that was used by ChatGPT. After being trained on Microsoft Azure AI supercomputers over a period of almost six months, OpenAI claims to have this model “safer and more aligned,” making it almost 40% more likely to produce the desired information. So with new abilities, some exciting times are ahead of us. Let’s have a look at the innovations induced in GPT-4.

GPT 4 is designed to be a multimodal language model, a notch more efficient than GPT 3.5, which was unimodal and could take input only in text format. So it has the ability to comprehend images and pictures in a much more efficient fashion. In the latest iteration of the software, it promises to understand user queries in a more definite way, for example, by identifying the recipe just by having an image query of the ingredients. Now, how cool is that?

GPT-4 is also supposed to be improving at coding and programming tasks over GPT-3.5. ChatGPT was already doing well in this field, but the fourth version of the GPT is said to be curating basic-level games like Snake and Pong in a matter of a few minutes.

It is gaining some popularity for passing really difficult examinations, too, like the Uniform Bar Exam or the Biology Olympiad Test, with even better percentiles than its predecessor, the ChatGPT. Apparently, it passed the above two exams with a 90 and 99 percentile, respectively.

Another great upgrade over the pre-existing software ChatGPT is that GPT4 has some funny bones that actually comprehend humor! So along with its capacity to understand image queries that were already discussed here in the above section, it is highly likely to understand funny memes and reply back just like the best friend we all have.

Concerns And Limitations

No matter how intelligent and innovative the newest software is, it is definitely not devoid of mistakes and errors. Although it is claimed that it is 82% less likely to respond to prompts for negative queries, ChatGPT 4 has its own set of “hallucinations.” The improvised chatbot does contain “social biases” too, which were indeed some troublesome worries in its previous version as well.

Apart from that, some tests of English language and history exams showed no improvement over GPT-3.5 results.


Although some limitations exist, as of now, GPT4 still serves as software with the “best possible results”, having more than 100 trillion parameters. The positive side is that the developers claim to be committed to improving the inefficiencies and lacunae that users have addressed. ChatGPT-4 is indeed a game changer for future businesses that relies on language processing and is a milestone in the evolution of artificial intelligence systems.
