GPT-4 Turbo: OpenAI Enhances ChatGPT AI Model for Developers

OpenAI announces updates for its GPT-4 Turbo model to improve efficiencies for AI developers and to remain competitive in a changing business landscape

OpenAI continues to be a leading figure in the world of AI research, having recently surpassed US$2bn in revenue.

Now, the company has announced that its GPT-4 Turbo model has been updated. Available for paying customers of ChatGPT Plus, Team or Enterprise, GPT-4 Turbo is one of the AI models that powers a more conversational experience within ChatGPT.

The model has been enhanced to primarily ease work for developers who are accessing the OpenAI model through an API call. OpenAI has stated that the new update seeks to streamline workflows and create more efficient apps.

A move like this allows ChatGPT to remain competitive against other new conversational chatbot products, such as Google’s Gemini and Anthropic’s Claude 3 Opus.

How GPT-4 Turbo could transform capabilities for AI developers

The updated GPT-4 Turbo model has new data processing capabilities and can enable analysis of text in JSON format. These snippets empower developers to automate tasks within connected applications such as sending emails, posting online, or making purchases.

Additionally, the model has improvements in writing, mathematics, logical reasoning and coding.

“When writing with ChatGPT [with the new GPT-4 Turbo], responses will be more direct, less verbose and use more conversational language,” OpenAI writes in a post on X.

Significantly, OpenAI has stated that the knowledge base of GPT-4 Turbo has been updated, having been trained on publicly available data up to December 2023. This has been extended from its previous cut-off of April 2023.

This comes in the wake of OpenAI having introduced several updates to its AI models and pricing structures in January 2024. Prices such as that of GPT-3.5 Turbo were reduced and GPT-4 Turbo had also received a performance boost after user complaints.

Moving forward, GPT-4 Turbo’s vision analysis capabilities will also be expanded and added to consumer apps like ChatGPT, enabling it to more efficiently understand image and video.

Driving business innovation forward

Plenty of businesses currently developing AI have made significant progress in developing their latest AI models to surpass the capabilities of previous versions.

Under the leadership of Sam Altman, OpenAI has been busy with new developments in the world of AI. In February 2024, it was reported that the company was seeking to spend millions of dollars to develop its own AI chips.

This decision was taken because of a shortage of new graphics processing units (GPUs), in addition to Sam Altman alluding to chip limitations preventing OpenAI from expanding its innovations further.

“We believe the world needs more AI infrastructure - fab capacity, energy, data centres, etc - than people are currently planning to build. Building massive-scale AI infrastructure, and a resilient supply chain, is crucial to economic competitiveness,” Altman posted on X at the time.
