According to sources, this new technology, which enhances logical reasoning beyond existing models, could be previewed as early as Monday. The upgrade, which combines existing capabilities like audio transcription and text-to-speech into a unified model, is set to improve user interaction by recognizing voice intonations and visual contexts.

The technology is intended to be transformative, potentially aiding in educational and practical applications by providing interactive tutoring and real-time information about surroundings. Although currently requiring cloud support due to its size, OpenAI plans to make this technology more accessible, aiming to integrate it into the free version of ChatGPT.

While Google and other competitors focus on similar advancements, OpenAI’s new model is reported to outperform its predecessor, GPT-4 Turbo, in specific queries, despite still being prone to occasional errors.

The development of this technology reflects a significant stride towards integrating AI more seamlessly into everyday tech products, potentially affecting millions of devices globally.
