“I think it's a bit rubbish.”

When asked what ChatGPT-4's most impressive capabilities were, Sam Altman said “I think it's kind of bad”; Which can be translated with the same familiarity as “I think it's a pocket / It's a bit rubbish.”

He adds: “I think it is our duty to live a few years into the future and remember that the tools we have today will be rubbish, looking back, and in this way we ensure that the future is better.”

Mr. Altman used the question to make it clear that he was most enthusiastic about the idea of ​​GPT-5, or whatever the next model might be called. The OpenAI CEO said his company will launch a new version of ChatGPT sometime next year, but he did not mention its name. According to him, this new model will represent a leap forward similar to that represented by GPT-4.

Sometimes magical

“I don't want to downplay the success of GPT-4, but I don't want to overstate it either,” Mr. Altman said.

The OpenAI CEO points out that ChatGPT is rarely useful for complex, multi-step problems. When it works, it's magical, but these cases are rare.

The GPT-4 model, which is said to be “a bit rubbish,” has helped OpenAI reach 100 million weekly users and a valuation of US$80 billion. For now, Mr. Altman and the rest of us will have to wait for the GPT-5 model to realize our AI dreams.
