OpenAI presents free AI model GPT-4o: It is smarter and knows Armenian

May 14, 2024  12:00

OpenAI has introduced a new multimodal generative artificial intelligence (AI) model, GPT-4o. The “o” in the model name stands for omni (comprehensive): it improves text processing and image analysis functions and adds the ability to recognize and process speech in real time. The new model will be introduced into solutions for developers and consumers in the coming weeks, and it will be available for free.

According to Open AI technical director Muri Murati, the intellectual capabilities of the new model are much higher than those of GPT-4, especially in programming. In addition, the new model understands and speaks 50 languages, including Armenian. How well it can understand such a complex language and whether it has surpassed ChatGPT-3.5 in this, we will find out in the coming weeks.

There is also a multilingual voice assistant that can translate speech on the fly and has human speech qualities: it can joke and “laugh.”

As TechCrunch explains, one of the key innovations of GPT-4o is its ability to understand photos directly from the camera in real time, which makes interaction with AI more intuitive and natural. In the past, the chatbot could only see uploaded images.

It should be noted that the rollout of the new model will take place in stages. Some users have already received it, while others will receive it in the coming weeks.

For free users, there will be certain restrictions on the number of messages that can be sent using GPT-4o. The quantity this will depend on current usage and demand. If GPT-4o is unavailable, users of the free version will be switched back to GPT-3.5.

It should also be noted that free users also get limited access to messages using advanced tools such as data analysis, file downloads, and so on.
