Microsoft Germany is set to launch the latest and greatest in natural language processing technology next week with the release of GPT-4. This new model will be multimodal, meaning it will be able to understand and interact with users using multiple forms of communication, including kinesthetic, tactile, and auditory interfaces. With the ability to teach machines to understand natural language in any language, GPT-4 is a game changer in the world of technology.
Despite concerns about job loss, Microsoft Germany’s CEO, Marianne Janik, assures us that AI is not here to replace jobs but to assist in doing repetitive tasks differently. She suggests forming “competent centers” to train and provide clarity on using AI to ensure a smooth migration.
So what are some practical uses for GPT-4? According to Microsoft Germany’s Chief Technologist of Business Development AI and Emerging Technologies, Holger Kenn, multimodal AI can not only translate text into images but can also translate it into music and video. Senior AI Specialist Clemens Siebler provided an example of how this could be used in call centers, where speech-to-text telephone calls could be recorded and agents would no longer need to summarize or type the content manually.
While AI won’t always be correct, verifying all information is important. Microsoft Germany has taken a positive stance on AI regulation and encourages the development of “competent centers” to ensure a smooth transition.
So get ready for the launch of GPT-4 next week, and experience the game-changing benefits of multimodal language understanding for yourself!
