After releasing GPT-4 Turbo, OpenAI is silently working on developing GPT-5. Sam Altman mentioned that the training process for GPT-5 will necessitate an increased volume of data, as per FT report. Altman explained that this data would be sourced from a blend of publicly accessible datasets on the internet and exclusive datasets from private companies.
While GPT-5 is likely to be more sophisticated than its predecessors, Altman said it was technically hard to predict exactly what new capabilities and skills the model might have.
“Until we train that model, it’s like a fun guessing game for us,” he said. “We’re trying to get better at it, because I think it’s important from a safety perspective to predict the capabilities. But I can’t tell you exactly what it’s going to do that GPT-4 didn’t.” said Sam Altman, as reported.
Meanwhile, OpenAI also intends to seek additional financial support from its major investor Microsoft to achieve its vision of AGI, as stated by Sam Altman. At the first-ever developers’ conference – DevDay 2023 – OpenAI Chief Sam Altman was super optimistic about building AGI together with Microsoft.
“I think we have the best partnership in tech. I’m excited for us to build AGI together.” said Altman, sharing the stage with Microsoft chief Satya Nadella.
Microsoft invested $10 billion in OpenAI earlier this year as part of a “multi-year” agreement, putting a valuation of $29 billion on the San Francisco-based company, as per sources familiar with the discussions.
OpenAI recently introduced ‘OpenAI Data Partnerships,’ inviting organisations to collaborate in producing both public and private datasets for training AI models. The initiative aims to enhance AI’s understanding of various subjects, industries, cultures, and languages, facilitating the development of AGI, as stated by OpenAI.
