OpenAI ChatGPT -  GPT 5 Launch Will Redefine Superintelligence Efforts


In September 2023, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman quashed all rumors around GPT 5 release and gave a statement that the company wasn’t training GPT-5 and ‘won’t for some time.’ But in the technology world, things change fast and the way AI has seen a new level of popularity with almost every company joining the race, it was not possible for OpenAI not to train GPT-5. GPT 5 launch is very much on the cards and it might be launched later this year or early next year. 

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman recently shared insights on the highly anticipated development of GPT5 during a conversation on the Bill Gates Unconfuse Me podcast. In the non-ending quest to train language models, OpenAI is gearing up to unveil the next-generation large language model, GPT-5. He also spoke about groundbreaking improvements in the new model.

GPT 5 will offer multimodal capabilities

Unlike its predecessors, including ChatGPT 4, GPT-5 is set to be a fully multimodal model. It will provide users with comprehensive support for speech, image, code, and video. Sam Altman's revelation on the podcast hinted at a total shift. The GPT5 model is set to provide a more immersive and interactive AI experience.

Addressing reliability and comprehension issues of GPT 4 and other models

OpenAI initiated the training of GPT-5 last year, soon after he had quashed the rumors around the development of a new model. He acknowledges that GPT-5 aims to tackle the challenges that users are persistently facing on previous models. 

The biggest challenges include overcoming unreliable responses and difficulties in comprehending queries. By integrating speech-to-text and text-to-speech functionalities, the GPT 5 model is expected to enhance its overall reliability. The idea is to make responses highly accurate and provide contextually relevant outputs.

Potential for superintelligence

There are talks around GPT-5 release that the model might achieve superintelligence. Altman has clarified that he envisions the GPT 5 model as an advanced iteration of existing AI models. The AI model is expected to present superior reasoning capabilities without necessarily surpassing human intelligence.  

Large language models (LLMs) have seen tremendous progress in recent years due to growth in architecture, training data, and computing power. This suggests that the growth is unprecedented and training the LLMs to exceed human intelligence in certain domains might be possible. Gemini is already projected to be 5x larger than GPT-4.  But still, due to various limitations, like common sense reasoning and logical deductions, achieving a superintelligence level at this point or in the coming few years seems like a complex task.

User demand for multimodal features

Altman emphasized the growing user demand for multimodal features, particularly video support. VideoGPT is already creating a buzz. Since the model's success in speech, and images have already meant a rise in user expectations, video support is being seen as the next big thing with GPT 5 launch.

Customization and personalization

One of the key enhancements in GPT5 is its focus on allowing users to customize how the AI responds, acts, and solves problems. Altman envisions a more custom experience. The target is to manage concerns related to the generation of fabricated information or AI hallucinations in responses which is one of the big drawbacks in all GPT models from various AI companies. 

The company's focus is highly on improving the reliability of AI responses. GPT5 aims to address concerns where one out of 10,000 responses may be accurate. This level of consistency in responses and high-quality output for users might set the way forward for achieving superintelligence with GPT models.

Integration of personal data

A key factor in GPT-5 future capabilities will be the integration of personal data, such as email, calendar, and other external data sources. Sam Altman envisions a more informed AI that is capable of understanding user preferences and behaviors, This means GPT 5 might offer a more personalized and context-aware interaction.


Road to Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)

GPT-5 is not positioned as an AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) breakthrough. But Sam Altman highlighted that OpenAI views it as a significant step in the ongoing research toward achieving AGI. The goal is to continually improve and refine AI capabilities over the next 5 to 10 years.

Looking ahead

OpenAI is progressing swiftly with the development of the GPT-5 model and plans to release it in around a year's time. The company's focus is on meeting user expectations and delivering a more reliable and customizable AI experience. OpenAI's optimistic outlook clearly suggests a big improvement curve for the next generation of LLMs, including GPT 5.

FAQ ChatGPT 5 launch date

Here are the common questions users are asking about the ChatGPT 5 release date.

Does GPT 5 exist? When will it be launched?

As confirmed by the OpenAI CEO, GPT-5 Is officially on the OpenAI roadmap. He denied it in an interview in 2023 but it's now official and GPT 5 launch might be  anytime in late 2024 or early to mid-2025.

How powerful will ChatGPT 5 be?

GPT-5 release is confirmed. The tool is set to have highly improved memory and contextual understanding. This will enable it to better understand the context of a conversation or text. GPT 5 will be able to handle more inputs and queries and there will be a higher level of user engagement.

What are the capabilities of GPT 5?

Although people are upbeat and in a state of excitement about GPT 5 development and making claims that it will achieve superintelligence, that's a distant thing right now. However, a better understanding of nuances, improvement in common sense reasoning and ability to do logical deductions will make it better than any other LLMs, maybe even better than what Google Gemini would be at that time, especially because of video support.

What is the difference between GPT-5 and GPT-4?

As discussed earlier, Chat GPT-5 will offer users several notable improvements over Chat GPT-4. Some of these include improved reasoning capabilities, image and video comprehension, and the ability to process larger documents. This will make ChatGPT 5 much more efficient and versatile than ChatGPT 4.

Will GPT-5 release mean we'll see a tool that will achieve AGI?

GPT 5 details are yet to be revealed. But from what we know about OpenAI's track record, we have some hints at what's in store. GPT-5 will have the potential to redefine AI, approach AGI, and enhance accuracy. Its focus on multimodality and tackling challenges like cost-effectiveness and scalability is promising. So yes, if it won't exactly achieve AGI, it will still set a direction for future models to make it happen sooner than expected.
