What is ChatGPT 4?
ChatGPT 4 is the latest version of the GPT language model developed by OpenAI. It is a machine-learning model that can generate human-like text based on the input it receives and a lot more that was not previously available in ChatGPT 3. It’s trained on a large corpus of data (not only text), making it capable of understanding visuals, language patterns (text and audio), and nuances.
ChatGPT 4 vs. ChatGPT 3
Before we delve into the new features of ChatGPT 4, let’s take a moment to compare it to its predecessor, ChatGPT 3. While ChatGPT 3 was a significant advancement in natural language processing, it still had some limitations. For example, it had difficulty understanding context and lacked the ability to incorporate visual information into its responses.
ChatGPT 4, on the other hand, builds upon the foundation laid by ChatGPT 3 and introduces several new features that address these limitations. The parameter count for GPT 3 was 175 billion but GPT 4 may not have as many parameters as the general public speculated but it is said to be more optimized and accurate.
Here are some of the key differences:
- More accuracy: ChatGPT 4 is expected to be more accurate and more optimized in comparison to ChatGPT 3. Though it may not have the huge parameter that everyone is expecting to have, it will be more efficient in understanding the context better and producing better and more authentic responses.
- Multi-modal capability: ChatGPT 4 can now generate responses that combine text, images, and other modalities. This means that it can understand and respond to queries that involve multiple forms of input.
- Improved efficiency: Despite its larger size, ChatGPT 4 is more efficient than ChatGPT 3. It can generate responses faster and with less computational power.
- Word Limit: ChatGPT 4 can process more words than the previous ChatGPT. According to OpenAI, they have increased its word limit to 25000 whereas previously it was at 3000 only.

The multi-modal capability of ChatGPT 4 is a game-changer for natural language processing (NLP). It means that the model can now generate responses that combine text, images, and other modalities. This means that it can not only process and generate text but also images and other audio-visual inputs and outputs. if you ask ChatGPT 4 “What’s the capital of France?” it can not only give you the text-based response “Paris” but also show you an image of the Eiffel Tower or a map of France.
The implications of this are enormous, especially in the field of education. Imagine a student struggling with a concept in a textbook. With ChatGPT 4’s multi-modal capability, they can take a picture of the page and ask a question, and ChatGPT 4 can generate an answer that not only explains the concept but also provides visual aids to help the student understand better.
Impacts of ChatGPT 4 on Education
ChatGPT 4’s multi-modal capability has the potential to transform the way we learn and teach. Here are a few of the possible significant impacts of ChatGPT 4 on Education:
With ChatGPT 4, students can receive personalized explanations and feedback tailored to their learning style and pace. They can ask questions in their own words and receive responses that are not only accurate but also easy to understand. The students can also input an image and ask ChatGPT 4 about the image to have responses about the image. Some are even saying that GPT 4 will even highlight or mark images if necessary to make the response easier to understand.
Improved student engagement
With the multi-modal capability of ChatGPT 4, educators can create more interactive and engaging learning experiences. For example, a history teacher could use ChatGPT 4 to generate responses that include text, images, and videos about historical events, making the subject matter more engaging for students. The GPT 4 model is capable of better storytelling which means teachers will be able to prepare more engaging and innovative content for students using ChatGPT 4.
ChatGPT 4 can help make education more accessible to students with disabilities. For example, a visually impaired student can interact with ChatGPT with a speech about a particular topic or concept and it will generate audio output to help the student understand the topic. It will have a great impact on increasing the accessibility in educational setup.
More efficient grading
With ChatGPT 4, educators could automate grading tasks, saving them time and effort. For example, a language teacher could use ChatGPT 4 to grade essays, with the model generating responses that evaluate the quality of the writing and provide feedback to the student. If how we think the multi-modal capacity will function is true, teachers can give ChatGPT the answer scripts as images and let it identify and mark the mistakes with recommendations on possible improvements. This way teachers can save time in grading and focus more on guiding individual students to success.
Better Learning Aid and Opportunity for Students
ChatGPT 4 has the capability to browse the internet! That’s right…you know you wanted it from the very first time you interacted with ChatGPT. Now it is here for real. If you refer ChatGPT 4 an URL or link, it can browse through the content and give you related output based on your query. Students will find it really useful to browse through complex and hard literary pieces or text and be able to take help from ChatGPT to comprehend the context in a more consumable manner.
Besides this, ChatGPT 4 can also take images of a website wireframe that you may have roughly drawn by your hand and give you codes to transform it into a real working website! This is just mind-blowing! Learners who are learning to develop websites and web design can sketch their ideas and transform them into codes and then study the codes to learn more rapidly.
Math students can take a picture of the problem they can’t solve and ChatGPT 4 can step-by-step solve the problem for them so that they can study the steps and learn from it. If it is still not enough and the student needs further explanation on any of the steps, they can just ask ChatGPT 4 back and it will follow.
To sum it up, ChatGPT 4 has the potential to revolutionize education by providing more interactive, personalized, and accessible learning experiences.
To better understand ChatGPT 4’s increased capabilities, let’s take a closer look at the parameter differences between ChatGPT 3 and ChatGPT 4. The parameter count refers to the number of variables in the neural network that ChatGPT uses to generate responses. The more parameters, the more information ChatGPT can process and the more accurate and diverse its responses.
ChatGPT 3 was trained on 175 billion parameters and ChatGPT 4 is said to be trained on a similar or slightly increased amount of parameters but will be more optimized to perceive context and give a more accurate and authentic response. Additionally, ChatGPT 4’s multimodal architecture will increase its functionalities and prospects giving users more flexibility and options.
