It has just been around a week since Chat GP4-4 launched last March 14th, and it has been wowing users with its wide range of stunning features, such as being able to understand images, having longer memory, being more multilingual, and having a multitude of “personalities.”
This newest offering in the field of artificial intelligence is proving to be revolutionary.
However, it has also been recently reported that ChatGPT and GPT-4 are not working for various users worldwide. Here’s the scoop.
Not working well
Apparently, ChatGPT has stopped working for some users across various parts of the world, with them complaining about issues they are encountering with OpenAI.
ChatGPT has stopped working, with users around the world complaining about issues with OpenAI.
Down Detector, a website health monitor, has logged hundreds of reports from users of ChatGPT and GPT-4, complaining that OpenAI is down and the chatbot was not functioning well.
OpenAI, fortunately, is quick to recognize these problems. The status page on its website said there was an “outage on chat.openai.com,” noting many other incidents in recent days.
Chat GPT-4, the latest version of OpenAI’s generative artificial intelligence tool launched in the middle of this month, following the huge success of the company’s ChatGPT software in 2022.
GPT-4 has already proved capable in a wide range of tasks, including OpenAI saying this technology can handle “much more nuanced instructions” compared to its ChatGPT predecessor.
For instance, some users are able to recreate video games “in seconds” with GPT-4, and use it to interact with human workers to complete real-world tasks.
“We look forward to GPT-4 becoming a valuable tool in improving people’s lives by powering many applications,” OpenAI stated about Chat GPT-4. “There’s still a lot of work to do, and we look forward to improving this model through the collective efforts of the community building on top of, exploring, and contributing to the model.”
Key people in the world of AI are saying that this technology has started to develop beyond an exponential rate.
“A mental model I have of AI is it was roughly ~linear progress from 1960s-2010, then exponential 2010-2020s, then has started to display ‘compounding exponential’ properties in 2021/22 onwards,” Jack Clark, co-founder of AI research firm Anthropic, posted on a Twitter thread.
“In other words, next few years will yield progress that intuitively feels nuts.
“How I’m trying to be in 2023 is ‘mask off’ about what I think about all this stuff, because I think we have a very tiny sliver of time to do various things to set us all up for more success, and I think information asymmetries have a great record of messing things up.”
