OpenAI is a research company that works on artificial intelligence (AI) with the stated goal of bringing it safely to humanity at large. This group works in many areas of AI like machine learning, deep learning, and robotics.

They are famous for the release of ChatGPT, which prompted the current explosion in direct-to-consumer generative AI. If you’re looking for the best text and chat model, by most accounts you want GPT-4.

GPT Models

GPT models like GPT-3, GPT-3.5-Turbo, GPT-3.5-Instruct and GPT-4 have changed how machines create and understand text. They guess the next word in a sentence using the words that came before, after having been trained on enormous amounts of text to learn to identify patterns that make up how people write. The technology is making communication between people and coomputers more natural and simple.

At the moment, GPT-4 and its variants (GPT-4-32k, GPT-4V, and GPT-4-Turbo) represent the state of the art in large language models, and are the benchmark all other tech companies are trying to beat.

About OpenAI

OpenAI began in 2015 as a collaboration among computer scientists, including famous individuals like Elon Musk and Sam Altman. They aimed to develop AI that could benefit everyone, not just a few big companies. They formed a team of experts and provided funding for their research, setting them apart from other AI organizations focused on profit.

Originally, OpenAI operated as a nonprofit. Its main purpose was to push AI forward in ways that could aid everyone globally. They did this by researching how to make machines more intelligent and sharing their findings without charge. Their goal was to use the power of AI to tackle significant challenges safely.

OpenAI created several advanced AI technologies as it evolved. Their most well-known is GPT, which excels at mimicking human-like text.

After the development of GPT-2, OpenAI introduced a profit-making division. According to AI, this shift allowed it to fund larger projects and remain competitive in the AI industry. Many people have since been critical of the move, questioning its compatibility with OpenAI’s stated goals of benefitting the greatest number of people through AI.

Tensions between those ideals and profit motives boiled over in late 2023, when Sam Altman was briefly fired as OpenAI’s CEO before being reinstated a few days later. The turmoil led to intense scrutiny of OpenAI’s business model in the media and tech circles.

Projects and Research

OpenAI works on a wide range of areas within artificial intelligence, including understanding and producing human speech, making machines that can move and perform tasks, and teaching computers to learn from data and get better over time without direct programming.

Much of OpenAI’s work revolves around alignment: teaching computers to share human goals and values. It looks into how to make AI systems that can be trusted to make fair and helpful decisions. That means creating methods to keep AI systems from being tricked or used to share false ior dangerous nformation.

But what they’re famous for are Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) models. The smart algorithms that can create text that sounds like it was written by a human based on the information they get. They can write stories, answer questions, and even write about topics they have not been directly taught about. The latest version, GPT-4, has abilities that are very close to how humans write.
