Microsoft to launch ChatGPT 4 with AI videos next week
Microsoft is preparing to upgrade the AI tool with an update as the company is set to launch GPT-4 as early as next week, and it will potentially let you create AI-generated videos from simple text prompts.
At a recent gathering called “AI in Focus — Digital Kickoff,” Andreas Braun, Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft Germany, announced the news (via Heise).
“We’ll debut GPT-4 next week… We will have multimodal models that provide entirely new options, like videos,” Braun said.
GPT-4 is the underlying large language model technology that powers apps like ChatGPT. Right now, ChatGPT can only reply in text form, but it looks like the imminent update will change all that.
ChatGPT won’t be the first tool to output AI-created videos. In 2022, Facebook owner Meta launched Make-A-Video, which creates realistic videos based on short text prompts. By the sound of it, the next version of ChatGPT might be able to do something similar.
At the AI event, Microsoft explained that GPT-4 would be “multimodal.” Holger Kenn, Director of Business Strategy at Microsoft Germany, explained that this would allow the company’s AI to translate a user’s text into images, music and video.
