Microsoft’s ChatGPT-4, the popular AI chatbot, is set to launch this week with an exciting new feature: it can turn text into videos. Andreas Braun, CTO of Microsoft Germany, confirmed that the new version will have “multimodal models” and generate content in multiple formats, such as audio clips, images, and video clips, from a text prompt.
ChatGPT is a large language model that uses AI to generate human-like text responses to a given prompt. The current version, GPT3.5, has been found to have a wide range of capabilities, from passing exams and delivering sermons to writing software and providing relationship advice. However, it has been limited to providing text responses only.
This updated version, dubbed GPT-4, will change that. In addition to generating text responses, it will be able to create videos in response to a text prompt. While rival tech giant Meta has also developed its own AI system that generates videos from text prompts, Microsoft’s ChatGPT-4 will likely have a significant impact on the field due to its multimodal models.
The release of ChatGPT has been a collaborative effort between Microsoft and OpenAI, with Microsoft investing heavily in the technology. Microsoft has already unveiled a host of new products that incorporate ChatGPT, including the AI-assisted Bing search engine. With the release of ChatGPT-4, the technology has the potential to become even more ubiquitous.
ChatGPT-4 is not OpenAI’s first foray into AI-generated content. The company has also developed DALL-E, a text-to-image AI, and Jukebox, a tool that creates music from a prompt and can mimic the style of different artists.
While Microsoft has not revealed whether ChatGPT-4 will be released by itself or as part of a product, the tech company has an event planned for Thursday that is due to showcase “the future of AI,” which may provide more information.
In summary, ChatGPT-4’s new feature of being able to turn text prompts into videos is an exciting development in the field of AI chatbots. With Microsoft and OpenAI continuing to invest in the technology, we can expect to see even more innovations in the future.
