OpenAI has launched GPT-4 Turbo, arguably the most powerful and capable LLM to date, but it’s what came with it that makes all the difference. ChatGPT is no longer confined to the realm of text—it now wields the power of sight, dexterity in code, and scholarly wisdom that browses the web.
Before this week, OpenAI limited our creativity when interacting with ChatGPT: If you wanted to build code, you could not search the web for answers to bugs or suggestions on how to tackle problems. If you wanted to search the web, you could not use plugins. If you wanted to create an image, you could not analyze another picture.
Well, that era is over. Now you can do everything within the same interface.
Now ChatGPT is a tool that understands your words and your images, diagrams, and half-baked code snippets. It’s like having a tech-savvy genie in your laptop, minus the three-wish limit. Welcome to a future where your AI sidekick does more than just chat—it collaborates, creates, and consults.
In this article, we’ll explore the magic behind the screen, delving into the realms of possibility unlocked by ChatGPT’s new multimodal features. Here’s a tour through the wonders of what this AI can do for you—no magic wand required, just a dash of curiosity and a sprinkle of imagination.
1. The Reluctant Programmer’s Best Friend:
Ever dreamed of crafting code like a pro without delving into the nitty-gritty of programming languages? ChatGPT’s latest trick is your wish come true. Snap a picture of your code, bugs and all, and this AI transforms into your personal coding minion.
Combining GPT-4 Vision with the Advanced Data Analysis tool is the best way to help novices develop their coding proficiency.
Now you have a software guru at your beck and call, tirelessly correcting your syntax errors and logical blunders while you take all the credit. Perfect for the aspiring programmer with more ideas than debugging skills, it’s the cheat code to the programming game you never knew you needed.
And it’s also perfect for those who know zero about coding and still want to build a program. The natural language processing era is just around the corner.
2) The Style-Savvy Artist:
Artistic flair is no longer just for the Picassos and Van Goghs of the world. With a photo as your muse, ChatGPT can now channel your inner artist, generating images that mimic the style of your original piece. Did you see a nice picture and want to create something similar? Just show the photo to ChatGPT, and watch as it conjures up digital masterpieces that fuse your vision with its algorithmic brush strokes.
This example combines GPT-Vision with DALL-E 3 in one iteration, but you can go beyond that with your creativity as the only limitation.
3) The Financial Oracle:
In the volatile tides of stock and crypto markets, ChatGPT emerges as your financial seer. If you are already a degen who trusts in questionable YouTubers, mice, octopuses, and the horoscope, maybe a chatbot trained on objective data with a bit of your own personality could enrich your pool of weird advisors.
By feeding it an image of your charted strategies, ChatGPT can learn your investment tactics, becoming an extension of your trading psyche.
This example combines GPT-4 Vision, Advanced Data Analysis, and GPT-4’s natural LLM capabilities to build a Wall Street analyst you can keep in your back pocket, ready to send the ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ alerts so you can play the markets with the confidence of a seasoned trader—even if your only prior experience is a piggy bank.
4) The Virtual Vogue Mentor:
Fashion faux pas can be a thing of the past with ChatGPT as your style consultant. Show it a photo, and it becomes your personal Anna Wintour, advising you on how to jazz up that wardrobe to look more modern, or perhaps add a touch of class with a classic twist.
Whether you’re aiming for runway-ready or street-chic, your AI stylist is on hand to ensure you turn heads for all the right reasons.
This iteration uses Vision and the broader knowledge of GPT-4 to craft a proper response. But you can extend it and ask it to search the web for more suggestions, and even create a picture of the ideal look your chatbot has in mind for you.
5) The Avatar Creator:
Ever wanted to star in your own animated series or game? ChatGPT can now take your selfie, analyze it with Vision, and craft it into a range of avatars, echoing your likeness into digital forms using DALL-E 3.
Whether it’s for your gaming alter-ego or your professional profile picture, it conjurs your digital twins with just a few clicks. It’s personal branding with an AI twist, ensuring your virtual representation is just as impressive as you are.
Even better, if you’re sad after realizing you dress poorly, these avatars will make you look really nice, so you might still get the confidence boost you need.
6) The Interactive Storyteller:
Bedtime stories evolve with ChatGPT’s interactive narrative capabilities. Outline a story, and it weaves a tale that’s as engaging as it is unique, asking for your input to shape the plot’s twists and turns.
It’s a collaborative storybook that unfolds with your child’s imagination at the helm, ensuring that by the time the “happily ever after” rolls in, your little ones are drifting into dreamland.
It is a great tool to help you bond with your little kids who ask you for a nice bedtime story. Ask it later for illustrations to fit the narrative, combine GPT-4 with DALL-E 3, and you have the makings of a custom book your little ones can treasure.
7) The AI Fitness Coach:
Step into the future of fitness with ChatGPT as your personal trainer. Upload photos of your workouts, and it turns into a form-checking guru, offering tips to perfect your poses and enhance your routines.
Then, it scours the web for diet plans and training tips tailored to your goals. It’s like having a gym buddy, nutritionist, and coach, all rolled into one AI package, pushing you towards a healthier, stronger self.
And there you have it—a peek into the future so bright, you’ll need to upgrade your shades. This new update, along with GPT-4 Turbo’s massive overhaul, stamps massive caps lock on the I in AI. And this is just the chatbot—we’ve not even touched on the wonderful things you can do with GPTs, Assistants, and other advanced stuff in OpenAI’s playground.
It’s time to lean back, dream big, and let your chatbot do the heavy lifting. Give these features a whirl and push the boundaries of what you thought possible. Who knows? You might surprise yourself.
