GPT-4 released, here's what it can do.

PLUS: AI helps save you from TSA pat downs

Morning brains, yesterday was a big day in AI as Open AI finally released their most powerful chatbot yet: GPT-4.

Today we’re digging into the new tech, so you can find out exactly where you can use GPT-4, what it can do, and where there are still limitations.

This is Bot Eat Brain and you’re reading your daily munch of AI News.

  • GPT-4: What’s so great about a sequel? 💬

  • AI is saving you from unnecessary pat-downs 🤖

  • AI-generated collab between Ikea & Patagonia 🧥


Everything you need and want to know about GPT-4

👉 What is GPT-4?

  • Yesterday OpenAI announced the launch of GPT-4, their sequel to the extremely powerful and popular GPT-3 chatbot powering Chat-GPT and the new Bing AI assistant.

👉 Where can I use it?

  • GPT-4 is available to ChatGPT+ subscribers ($20/month) and in Bing chat (free). It’s also available via the OpenAI API but requires applying to a waitlist in order to gain access.

  • I experimented with both, and so far it seems to me that the ChatGPT+ version is a bit smarter than the Bing version.

👉 What’s new since GPT-3?

  • It can see. The biggest news is that GPT-4 will now be able to process images as well as text. This capability is not yet available anywhere but was demoed during a live stream yesterday. GPT-4 is apparently capable of describing what it sees in an image and making logical deductions based on that information.

This behavior is common in New York, but the bot does its best.

  • It’s got a big vocabulary. GPT-4 has a much larger word limit than GPT-3 at 25,000 words vs just 3,000. That means you can both feed it large amounts of documentation as input, or ask it to generate large amounts of text as output.

For reference, a typical novel is usually 50,000+ words.

  • It’s smart. Smarter than the version of GPT that came before it, and smarter (on some specific tasks) than many humans as well. Here’s how it stacks up on several exams typically used to benchmark human brains:

GPT 3.5 scored among the bottom 10% in the bar exam. In contrast, GPT 4 scored among the top 10%

  • You can give it specific personalities, saved separately from the primary chat interface. If you’re building an app using the GPT-4 API, then it should give priority to your personality prompt over whatever instructions your users feed it.

👉 What can you do with GPT-4?

  • You can have it write code for you. And since GPT-4 understands photos, it can even turn a rough sketch into a working website.

Functioning website code from a crude drawing.

  • You can have it explain memes to you.

It was always chicken nuggets.

  • You can analyze an infographic.

Consultants beware!

The TSA uses AI to decrease unnecessary pat-downs

The TSA has rolled out an updated AI-based algorithm on their body scanners to decrease the number of false alarms that lead to unnecessary pat-downs.

This update is particularly helpful for transgender, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming travelers.

The TSA received $18.6 million to develop and implement the new algorithm.

“TSA recognized a trend with false alarms at the Advanced Imaging Technology units and implemented an algorithm update on the nearly 1,000 deployed units to significantly reduce false alarms,”

- Carter Langston, TSA spokesperson


Creative Director angers people over fictional Ikea X Patagonia collab

The fictional collab between Ikea & Patagonia

An international creative director, Eric Groza, has been in the news lately for creating a fictional collab between Ikea & Patagonia.

When Eric discovered Midjourney (an AI art generation tool), he was blown away by its ability to produce realistic images. Groza tested Midjourney's capabilities with a fictional but realistic project - an Ikea and Patagonia collaboration.

Groza has gone on to create other brand collaborations, and the viral images have sparked both anger and appreciation from creatives.

Why it matters: We could see more companies use generative AI to come up with collaboration ideas. Who knows, we might see a McDonald’s X Gucci collab soon.
