OpenAI Shares First Image Generated By GPT-4o

Image (including text) was generated by GPT-4o

OpenAI’s president Greg Brockman recently shared the first image generated by the new GPT-4o model, which debuted on Monday. This photorealistic image features a person wearing an OpenAI logo T-shirt, wiping a blackboard with chalk text discussing the model's capabilities. GPT-4o improves upon previous models by being faster, cheaper, and better at retaining information from multimedia inputs.

Unlike its predecessors, which converted media to text, GPT-4o was trained on multimedia tokens, allowing it to directly analyze and interpret vision and audio. This new approach results in higher quality and accuracy in image generation, as evidenced by the comparison to DALL-E 3. While the public cannot yet access GPT-4o’s image generation features, OpenAI is working to make them available soon. Read more.

OpenAI Signs Reddit Deal To Train AI On Your Posts

In a data-driven alliance, OpenAI gains access to Reddit's real-time firehose via their API. This fuels both ChatGPT development and future OpenAI products, mirroring Reddit's prior pact (rumored at $60 million) with Google for AI-powered features. OpenAI joins the Reddit ad ecosystem, likely leveraging Reddit's conversation troves for model training.

While financial details remain under wraps (unlike Google's deal), Reddit emphasizes fostering community engagement. However, past restrictions on data scraping raise eyebrows. OpenAI CEO's Reddit activity (including past moderation disputes) adds intrigue. Nevertheless, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman sees a win-win, highlighting the platform's value as an open forum. Read more.
