There is no doubt that GPT-4 is a very powerful tool. Its recent release has put the OpenAI model in the spotlight once again. While some are already well aware of the full potential of GPT-4, others are just discovering it for the first time.
Be that as it may, GPT-4 can take your productivity to the next level, if you know how to use it well: today we’ll show you 8 ways to take advantage of the OpenAI model’s capabilities.
Your new writing assistant
Yes, GPT-4 can become your new writing assistant. If you already have your text ready, GPT-4 could help you correct your grammar and spelling. This way you make sure that everything is well written. GPT-4 can also help you by improving your writing style to make it clearer and more concise. All in all, GPT-4 can be a very useful tool for any writer looking to improve their writing.
Summarizes complex texts
If you need to summarize large amounts of text or don’t have time to read long paragraphs, you can always ask GPT-4 to summarize it for you. GPT makes use of its processing algorithms to identify the main idea of a piece of writing and then generate a more concise version. This way, you can save a lot of time and effort when preparing for an exam or any kind of project.
Automatically translate texts
Although GPT-4 is not designed to translate text, it is capable of doing so and quite well. GPT-4 can identify words and phrases from the source language and translate them into another language in a very short time. However, keep in mind that GPT-4 can make the occasional translation error, especially when dealing with very complex or specific vocabulary.
Brainstorming has never been easier
One of the most interesting uses of GPT-4 is for brainstorming. For example, you can enter in GPT-4 a word or phrase based on the topic you are interested in brainstorming: the OpenAI model will offer you alternatives and possible related ideas.
In addition, GPT-4 can also be useful for exploring other approaches to a specific topic. Who knows, maybe you’ll consider new ideas that would never have occurred to you otherwise, right?
One of the most impressive capabilities of GPT-4 is the ability to describe and analyze the content of an image. During the presentation of the model, Greg Brockman (president and co-founder of OpenAI), confirmed something that seemed impossible: GPT-4 could interpret the content of an image, even if it was handwriting.
At the developer live, Brockman gave a demonstration where he scribbled on a notepad the structure of a web page as a rough draft. He loaded the image into GPT-4 and the model transformed the sketch into HTML code. And this is just the beginning. Below is the video of the demonstration so you can see for yourself (minute 16:19).
Unfortunately, this feature has not yet been released to the public. Still, the examples shown by OpenAI were quite interesting. GPT-4 was able to describe images without problems and could make summaries from pictures of a text.
Use it as a study partner
The capabilities of GPT-4 have been put to the test by OpenAI in traditional tests and the result has been incredible to say the least. GPT-4 manages to effortlessly pass all kinds of tests and, moreover, it stands out with flying colors.
If you are currently studying, you can use GPT-4 to summarize large texts, generate new questions and analyze information. It can also help you find the right answers and study based on them.
Learn languages more easily
We have already seen that you can translate texts with GPT-4, but what about learning languages? Duolingo, the language learning platform, has confirmed that it will integrate OpenAI’s generative model. And it will be one of the claims of its new subscription plan: Duolingo Max.
Duolingo Max will be one level above what was the most complete plan to date, Super Duolingo. Like the latter, Duolingo Max will integrate everything Super offered but with two new additions: Explain My Answer and Role Play. The former will allow users to delve into their answers and see why they got it wrong (or right). On the other hand, Role Play is a feature that allows you to talk to chatbots and practice your language skills.
Write code in minutes
Since the breakthrough of ChatGPT, the model’s code writing capabilities have amazed programmers and enthusiasts alike. GPT-4 takes this to the next level. People with no programming knowledge will find GPT-4 to be a valuable tool. While ChatGPT still works with GPT-3.5 for the time being, we still have Bing, which does use GPT-4. For the moment, Microsoft’s chatbot has its limitations (it only allows 15 questions per chat), but it is still just as useful.
How can I access GPT-4?
If you are dying to try GPT-4 you have two avenues at the moment:
- Subscribe to ChatGPT Plus: after months of testing, GPT-4 is now available to all OpenAI service subscribers. We are certainly not surprised that it arrives as a paid version, especially considering that GPT-4 is up to 6 times more expensive than its predecessor.
- It uses Microsoft’s Bing: This is the easiest and quickest way to test GPT-4. Launch Edge, Microsoft’s proprietary browser and start a chat with Bing AI.
