OpenAI has released a powerful new image- and text-understanding AI model, GPT-4, that the company calls “the latest milestone in its effort in scaling up deep learning.”
GPT-4 is available today to OpenAI’s paying users via ChatGPT Plus (with a usage cap), and developers can sign up on a waitlist to access the API.
Pricing is $0.03 per 1,000 “prompt” tokens (about 750 words) and $0.06 per 1,000 “completion” tokens (again, about 750 words). Tokens represent raw text; for example, the word “fantastic” would be split into the tokens “fan,” “tas” and “tic.” Prompt tokens are the parts of words fed into GPT-4 while completion tokens are the content generated by GPT-4.
GPT-4 has been hiding in plain sight, as it turns out. Microsoft confirmed today that Bing Chat, its chatbot tech co-developed with OpenAI, is running on GPT-4.
What Is GPT 4?
In case you’re wondering how we’re already at number 4, since ChatGPT only came out late last year, first a few explanations: OpenAI has been releasing GPT language models since 2018. GPT-3, the third version, was the most advanced model when Chat GPT Login, OpenAI’s chatbot product, was released in 2022.
GPT-4 is OpenAI’s latest and most powerful major language model, but if you currently only have free access to ChatGPT, you’ll still be interacting with the GPT-3 model (well, GPT-3.5 if you want to get technical).
How Can I GPT 4 Login With ChatGPT+?
If you want to generate text freely with the GPT 4 model, you will need a paid subscription to ChatGPT+, the premium version of ChatGPT. Here’s how to get that:
You’ll then be served a popup, informing you about the virtues of the “Plus” upgrade.
The green “Upgrade Plan” button will whisk you to a standard e-commerce sales page, where you’ll need to input the usual information and cough up $20 per month.
Once you’re a paying customer, your access to the new model via ChatGPT will be immediate. No waitlist for you.
When starting a new chat, a pulldown will give you the option to use one of the old models or GPT-4. You’ll want to heed OpenAI’s warning that GPT-4 is not as fast as the others, because the speed difference is substantial.
