OpenAI’s GPT-4: A 70-Year Old Lesson!


Dr. Károly Zsolnai-Fehér, in his Two Minute Papers series, delves into the fascinating capabilities of GPT-4, an AI model that showcases a spark of intelligence. Despite not having ever seen an image, GPT-4 can create drawings based on textual descriptions and solve complex mathematical problems comparable to those in the International Mathematical Olympiad.

However, the model’s performance varies depending on how a problem is presented to it. For instance, it accurately listed and counted the prime numbers between 150 and 250 when provided a step-by-step prompt, but failed to give the correct count when asked directly. Dr. Zsolnai-Fehér attributes this inconsistency to the AI’s inability to think in a step-by-step manner unless explicitly directed to.

Interestingly, GPT-4 showcases stellar capabilities in areas like storytelling and even reading and evaluating electrocardiograms. However, it struggles with solving simple arithmetic problems – a task easily accomplished by a child. Despite this inconsistency, GPT-4 can create complex network graphs, write computer games in JavaScript, and solve classical thought experiments with logic. However, it fails to correctly identify the current year.

In his Two Minute Papers series, Dr. Károly Zsolnai-Fehér explores the perplexing capabilities and limitations of GPT-4, an AI model that demonstrates a spark of intelligence.

Dr. Zsolnai-Fehér ends by highlighting the deployment of GPT-4 in ChatGPT, enabling users to experience the future of AI. He marvels at how millions of users interact with AI technology, often without realizing it. Despite its shortcomings, GPT-4 symbolizes the incredible strides being made in AI research.
