Sam Altman calls GPT-4 “the dumbest model”


At a question-and-answer session at Stanford University, Sam Altman slammed his own creations, ChatGPT and GPT-4, calling them dumb and not phenomenal.

In a video snippet from a Q&A at Stanford University, Sam Altman is seen denouncing ChatGPT and GPT-4, calling ChatGPT “mildly embarrassing at best” and stating that GPT-4 is “the dumbest model that any of you will ever have to use again by a lot.”

He claims that this is because it’s “important to ship early and often and believe in iterative deployment.”

In another clip from the same Q&A session, the creator of ChatGPT states that Altman doesn’t care if OpenAI burns $500 million, $5 billion, or $50 billion a year.

“I genuinely don’t care,” he says.

“As long as we can stay on a trajectory where eventually we can create way more value for society… and as long as we can figure out a way to pay the bills…we’re making artificial general intelligence (AGI), it’s going to be expensive,” he claims.

As you might imagine, this has created quite a stir as people have taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to discuss Altman’s statements.

One X user posted this:

This technology was brought to the forefront of everyone’s attention in 2022, leaving people astounded by its capabilities.

Now, Altman seems to be suggesting that we will encounter stronger and better versions of the technology in the future.

In the pursuit of expanding the OpenAI empire, Altman and his team have recently released Sora.

Sora is a large-scale AI model that transforms a user's text prompt into 60 seconds of high-fidelity video.

The software can generate videos from text prompts and pre-existing images or videos.

This new venture threatens to shake up Hollywood as the platform may help to democratize content creation by allowing individuals with a vision to create content on a budget.

Sora has just recently created its first music video from text prompts. The first music video created with OpenAI’s publicly unreleased text-to-video generator Sora has been released for viewing, and it’s very dreamlike.

The video, shared on YouTube, was made for chillwave musician Washed Out. The AI-generated clip is four minutes long and features quick zoom shots through different scenes, edited together to create a seemingly endless moving shot.
