Microsoft upgrades its chat GPT with AI video

By Adekemi Familusi

Microsoft Open AI has been upgraded with the latest version, GPT-4 to replace the existing GPT-3.5 model. The new model is described as the latest “milestone in open Al’s effort in Scaling up deep learning” and some major upgrades in performance and a completely new way to interact.

According to Open Al, it is launching the feature with only one partner for now – the awesome Be My Eyes app for visually impaired people, as part of its fourth virtual volunteer tool. Users can send images via the app to Al-powered virtual volunteers which will provide instantaneous identification, interpretation, and conversational visual assistance for a wide variety of tasks.

Usually Be My Eyes users can make a video call to a volunteer who can help with identifying clothes, plants, equipment, restaurant menus, and so on. Moreover, chat GPT will soon be able to take on that responsibility on iOS and Android, just by the users snapping a picture. The app will then speak the interpretation to them.

GPT-4 is the underlying large language model technology that powers apps like ChatGPT. Before, ChatGPT could only reply in text form, but the imminent update has changed that.

ChatGPT won’t be the first tool to output AI-created videos. In 2022, Facebook owner Meta launched Make-A-Video, which creates realistic videos based on short text prompts.

Holger Kenn, Director of Business Strategy at Microsoft Germany, explained that GPT-4 would be “multimodal that this would allow the company’s AI to translate a user’s text into images, music, and video.

Microsoft gave an example of how a call centre could use GPT-4 to automatically convert phone conversations between employees and customers into text, which would save huge amounts of time and effort that would previously be expended on summarizing those calls after they finish.
