OpenAI's Sneak Peek into GPT-5 Development
OpenAI is quietly working on the next big thing – GPT-5, following the release of GPT-4 Turbo. According to Sam Altman, the brains behind OpenAI, getting GPT-5 ready involves using more data, a mix of public information from the internet and exclusive datasets from private companies.
While we can expect GPT-5 to be even more advanced than its predecessors, Altman admits it's tricky to predict the exact new skills and abilities it will have. He likens it to a fun guessing game until the model is trained. Altman emphasized the importance of understanding these capabilities for safety reasons but acknowledged the uncertainty.
Microsoft's Support and Optimism
In addition to their secret GPT-5 project, OpenAI is looking to Microsoft for extra financial support to achieve their goal of creating Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). At DevDay 2023, Altman expressed his optimism about the partnership with Microsoft, stating, "I think we have the best partnership in tech. I’m excited for us to build AGI together." Microsoft invested a hefty $10 billion in OpenAI earlier this year, valuing the San Francisco-based company at $29 billion.
OpenAI Data Partnerships for Collaboration
OpenAI is not just keeping things under wraps; they've also launched 'OpenAI Data Partnerships.' This invites organizations to collaborate and contribute to creating datasets for training AI models. The goal is to improve AI's understanding across various subjects, industries, cultures, and languages – all to speed up the development of AGI. So, while OpenAI is quietly making strides with GPT-5, they're also open to collaboration, gearing up for the next big breakthrough in artificial intelligence.
