GPT-4 is here, and enterprises and developers alike are rushing to utilize OpenAI's latest AI model. Here's a roundup of use cases that already give a sense of its capabilities.
The release of OpenAI's new GPT-4 language model was highly anticipated, and while it was expected this week, Tuesday's sudden announcement came as something of a surprise. Nevertheless, it only took a few hours for the first users to produce impressive demos and ideas for applications. Here is a small selection.
GPT-4 helps you code (even) better
In just under 30 minutes, OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman demonstrated how he used the new AI tool to create a Discord bot to connect to GPT-4 and respond to user questions. He also showed how to create a website from a very rough drawing - unlike ChatGPT, GPT-4 is multimodal and can handle images as well as text. The image feature is not yet available for everyone.

Another key difference between GPT-4 and ChatGPT is the up to eight times greater amount of context it can consider when prompting. As a result, GPT-4 relies less on its training data. For example, the AI model can be easily tuned to a specific use case by inserting entire technical documentation.
I don’t care that it’s not AGI, GPT-4 is an incredible and transformative technology.
I recreated the game of Pong in under 60 seconds.
It was my first try.

Even a custom variant of Snake doesn't seem to be a big challenge for GPT-4. The user doesn't need any programming knowledge.
Can GPT-4 code an entire game for you? Yes, yes it can.

It gets a little more complicated with a copy of Flappy Bird in Python. But after a few error messages and corrective feedback, GPT-4 wrote it almost by itself.

DoNotPay: Sue with one click
CEO Joshua Browder says legal startup DoNotPay is working on a "one-click lawsuit" to quickly sue robot callers for $1,500.
"Imagine receiving a call, clicking a button, call is transcribed and 1,000 word lawsuit is generated. GPT-3.5 was not good enough, but GPT-4 handles the job extremely well," says Browder.

Elicit: group science by concepts
Elicit is an AI research assistant that GPT-4 aims to make even more useful. "Elicit in 2022 took unstructured text in papers and structured it into a table. Elicit in 2023 will take this structured text and enable you to 'pivot' it, grouping it by concepts," announced developer Jungwon on Twitter.
We’re “pivoting” Elicit with GPT-4 😉

Duolingo: Learning languages through AI chats
Among OpenAI's first professional customers is the language-learning app Duolingo, which is introducing Duolingo Max, a new, more expensive $29.99 plan.
It includes access to a role-playing feature that provides additional training by simulating real-life conversational situations.
Rather than relying blindly on AI, Duolingo lets humans write the scenarios and ensures that the first prompt is based on the user's language level.
AI and education make a good duo.
Introducing Duolingo Max. A subscription tier above Super that gives you access to your own personal, AI-powered language tutor through Explain My Answer and Roleplay, two features developed with the latest @OpenAI technology.

Stripe sees GPT-4 as a game changer for customer service
Payment processor Stripe was already using GPT-3 to help its support team, but GPT-4 offers entirely new capabilities. With the new language model, it can better scan company websites and extract information, answer developer questions about documentation, and track down fraudsters. Stripe is also considering using GPT-4 as a business coach to understand funding models and provide strategic advice to businesses.
At @Stripe, @openai's GPT-4 is enabling any engineer to become an AI engineer. This means we can quickly deploy powerful AI across Stripe to deliver even better products for users and more efficiency for us.
(More on those deployments coming very soon.) https://t.co/tIsMVrSQoq

GPT-4 is currently available for ChatGPT Plus users only. The AI payment service is available internationally, the monthly fee is 20 US dollars. Developers can get on a waiting list for the GPT-4 API.
