OpenAI's GPT-4o: Omni Versatility for Users Worldwide

By Staff Writer, 15 May 2024

In a significant move to enhance accessibility and functionality, OpenAI announced the launch of GPT-4o, an advanced AI model, alongside a revamped desktop version of ChatGPT and an updated user interface.

This update marks a pivotal stride in OpenAI's mission to broaden the utilization of its widely-used chatbot.

During a livestreamed event on Monday, Mira Murati, Chief Technology Officer at OpenAI, highlighted that GPT-4o, dubbed "omni" for its versatility, is now available to all users, including those utilizing OpenAI's free tier.

Murati emphasized that GPT-4o boasts accelerated processing speeds and enhanced capabilities across text, video, and audio modalities.

Notably, OpenAI disclosed its intention to introduce video chat functionality to ChatGPT in the near future.

"This is the first time that we are really making a huge step forward when it comes to the ease of use," Murati remarked, underlining the company's commitment to enhancing user experience.

Backed by Microsoft and valued at over $80 billion by investors, OpenAI, established in 2015, faces the dual challenge of maintaining its leadership in the generative AI landscape while devising strategies to monetize its offerings amidst substantial investments in hardware and infrastructure for model development and training.

Murati elucidated that GPT-4o is equipped to handle 50 diverse languages with improved speed and accuracy, and it will be accessible via OpenAI's API, enabling developers to leverage the new model in their applications starting today.

Furthermore, Murati noted that GPT-4o boasts twice the speed and half the cost compared to its predecessor, GPT-4 Turbo.

The launch of GPT-4o signifies a significant milestone for OpenAI, underscoring its commitment to innovation and accessibility in the AI space while catering to the evolving needs of users worldwide.
