Daniel Aharonoff Dives Into GPT-4's Capabilities: A Glimpse of General Intelligence in AI?

Daniel Aharonoff's Take on GPT-4: A Step Towards General Intelligence?

Dear Fellow Scholars, let me introduce you to something that has left me absolutely flabbergasted. It's Microsoft's assessment of OpenAI's GPT-4 AI, and I am truly out of words. This AI is unlike anything we've seen before, and I'm going to tell you why.

Experimenting with GPT-4: A Text-Based Adventure

Imagine playing a text-based game with GPT-4, where the AI navigates through a map, and we make up an adventure. After reaching the goal, GPT-4 can:

  • Reconstruct the map of the whole game
  • Draw a map (yes, you heard that right)

And it does this without us even asking it to remember the layout. Now, that's fun!

Generating Images Using Text

GPT-4 can create images by using text. We can ask it to write code for a little person built from the letters of the alphabet, and it will deliver. We can ask for improvements, and it will oblige. We can even ask for a unicorn!

What's fascinating here is that GPT-4 improves over time. In the span of a month, the system became better and better.

A Miracle: Learning to "See" Without Seeing

GPT-4 has never seen an image in its life. Yet, it learned to "see" just from textual descriptions of things it read on the internet. That is mind-boggling!

We tested it by asking it to stack objects (a book, 9 eggs, a laptop, a bottle, and a nail) in a stable manner. The new version of GPT-4 came up with a practical and stable solution.

GPT-4's Coding and Mathematical Skills

GPT-4 can create simple video games in HTML and Javascript, even with rudimentary physics. Its coding skills are so sharp that it could be hired as a real software engineer.

Moreover, it's got impressive mathematical skills, solving problems from the International Mathematics Olympiad almost instantly. It even showed an understanding of integral calculus.

Is GPT-4 A Spark of General Intelligence?

Microsoft claims that GPT-4 might have a spark of general intelligence, something that most people thought was impossible or at least not achievable in our lifetime. And yet, here we are.

The future is here, and GPT-4 is intelligence like we've never seen before.

We've only scratched the surface of GPT-4's capabilities, but I'd love to continue this journey. If you're as excited as I am, consider subscribing and hitting the bell icon to not miss out on future updates. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time!
