GPT-4 Turbo Model Launch Drives OpenAI’s ChatGPT Beyond 100 Million Weekly Users Milestone

With the introduction of GPT-4 Turbo, a more powerful and cost-effective version of the company’s flagship text-generating AI model, GPT-4, at OpenAI’s first developer conference, CEO Sam Altman revealed that ChatGPT, the popular AI chatbot, has reached 100 million weekly active users.

ChatGPT, which was released only a year ago, swiftly acquired popularity, amassing an estimated 100 million monthly users in its first two months. Altman stated that the platform is now used by over two million developers, including 92% of Fortune 500 organizations.

The launch of GPT-4 Turbo, the next-generation model designed with a 128k context window, allowing it to comprehend the equivalent of more than 300 pages of text in a single prompt, was one of the event’s significant announcements. This enhanced version of the model is not only more powerful, but also more cost-effective, with input token costs decreased by a third and output token prices dropped by half when compared to GPT-4. GPT-4 Turbo, which has knowledge up to April 2023, is available for paying developers to preview and will be deployed in the following weeks.

In addition, OpenAI launched the Assistants API, which allows developers to create assistive AI applications with specific aims. The API offers features like Code Interpreter, Retrieval, and function calling, which help to speed up the process of developing high-quality AI products. OpenAI enhanced function calling accuracy, instruction following, and output generation precision with JSON mode.

The capabilities of GPT-4 Turbo have been upgraded to add vision support, allowing it to process photos and perform jobs such as creating captions and evaluating real-world photographs. DALLE 3, a tool that allows developers to generate pictures and designs programmatically, has also been included into OpenAI. OpenAI also debuted a text-to-speech API, which allows for the production of high-quality speech from text and has six preset voices to choose from.

To further empower developers, OpenAI established an experimental access program for GPT-4 fine-tuning, with the goal of providing a personalized experience for specific fields. A Custom Models program was also launched, allowing chosen enterprises to collaborate closely with OpenAI academics on highly customized solutions.

The occasion was graced by a surprise appearance by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, underlining the two tech giants’ relationship. Nadella commended OpenAI’s commitment to safety and empowerment, to which Altman reacted by emphasizing the significance of AI adoption in stages.
