Following its launch, OpenAI’s ChatGPT has evolved by leaps and bounds and also recently announced API access to GPT-4 with Vision.

About GPT-4 Vision

  • It is also referred to as GPT-4V which allows users to instruct GPT-4 to analyse image inputs.
  • It has been considered OpenAI’s step forward towards making its chatbot multimodal — an AI model with a combination of image, text, and audio as inputs.
  • It allows users to upload an image as input and ask a question about it. This task is known as visual question answering (VQA).
  • It is a Large Multimodal Model or LMM, which is essentially a model that is capable of taking information in multiple modalities like text and images or text and audio and generating responses based on it.
  • Features
    • It has capabilities such as processing visual content including photographs, screenshots, and documents. The latest iteration allows it to perform a slew of tasks such as identifying objects within images, and interpreting and analysing data displayed in graphs, charts, and other visualisations.
    • It can also interpret handwritten and printed text contained within images. This is a significant leap in AI as it, in a way, bridges the gap between visual understanding and textual analysis.
  • Potential Application fields
    • It can be a handy tool for researchers, web developers, data analysts, and content creators. With its integration of advanced language modelling with visual capabilities, GPT-4 Vision can help in academic research, especially in interpreting historical documents and manuscripts.
    • Developers can now write code for a website simply from a visual image of the design, which could even be a sketch. The model is capable of taking from a design on paper and creating code for a website.
    • Data interpretation is another key area where the model can work wonders as the model lets one unlock insights based on visuals and graphics.

Q1: What are chatbots?

These are a computer program that simulates and processes human conversation (either written or spoken), allowing humans to interact with digital devices as if they were communicating with a real person.
