The GPT4 rumor mill debunked

Remember this image? ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป

If you're an AI Twitter aficionado, you've probably come across every "viral" post featuring this image.

Everyone was raving about the big impact that GPT4 will have.

However, in a recent interview, Sam Altman poured cold water on some of these claims.

When asked about this graphic he said: "That's complete bullshit. People are begging to be disappointed, and they probably will be. We donโ€™t have an actual AGI and thatโ€™s sort of whatโ€™s expected of us."

Now that's some honest, right-in-the-face truth-telling.

He also did not reveal a release date for GPT-4 and stated that future technology releases from OpenAI will be slower than anticipated. The company's primary focus is to ensure that any new technology is released safely and responsibly.

Perplexity.ai: First conversational answer engine

Perplexity.ai announced a major update yesterday: They are building the first conversational answer engine.

With their app, you can now search for things, get an instant answer and ask follow-up questions to dig deeper.

This is basically ChatGPT + the latest references pulled from a search engine.

No more searching through dozens of links to find the answer!
