OpenAI revolutionized the use of artificial intelligence with the launch of ChatGPT in 2022. This chatbot has led to the emergence of new competitors, and there are already speculations about the arrival of its successor, which could be called ChatGPT-5 (ChatGPT with GPT-5).
First, let’s understand what each version of GPT means. Generative Pretrained Transformer (GPT) is a large language model (LLM) used to train artificial intelligence. It was developed by OpenAI, and the first version was released in 2018. Over the years, the tool has received new versions, with each new version being assigned a new number in the sequence.
GPT-3 was adapted and turned into GPT-3.5, which serves as the foundation for the free ChatGPT launched in November 2022. ChatGPT is capable of interacting with human language and developing responses to commands.
GPT-4 was launched in March 2023 to address some gaps left by its predecessor. It is available in ChatGPT Plus through a subscription. The new version allows real-time queries on the internet, accepts prompts from text or images, and includes a larger word capacity for each conversation.
As for the release date of ChatGPT-5, there is no forecast. OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, stated in an interview in April 2023 that the company has not started training GPT-5 and will not do so for some time. This does not mean that development efforts for ChatGPT have been halted. GPT-4 may receive further updates in the future and could potentially be included in the free version of the chatbot, but these are currently just speculations.
Speculations for features that could appear in ChatGPT-5 include:
1. Multimodal support: While GPT-4 has support for text and images, it is expected that future versions will expand the options for searching and processing other file formats such as video and audio. Additionally, the ChatGPT interface could be integrated into other tools to become a comprehensive assistant.
2. Increased contextual memory: Currently, ChatGPT develops context based on the conversation, but this is temporary and has a limit on the number of messages. There are already some options to remember user preferences, but the aim is to expand these possibilities. This would allow the responses to be adapted based on the user’s question history.
Overall, the exact features and release date of ChatGPT-5 are still uncertain. However, OpenAI continues to work on improving its AI models, and future updates can be expected to enhance the capabilities and functionalities of ChatGPT.
