When GPT-4 was released in March this year, it was branded as an advanced model with multimodal capabilities. However, multimodality was nowhere in sight. After almost six months, OpenAI released a string of updates last week, with the most notable one being the image and voice feature, making GPT-4 truly multimodal, and finally bringing in the ‘Vision’ feature.  

As showcased by OpenAI’s co-founder Greg Brockman in the demo video for explaining GPT-4 functionalities earlier this year, the varied uses of GPT-4 V(ision) have been put to test and the results have been incredible. Here are some of the amazing features of GPT-4V.
