What's the big deal?

I decided to experiment with ChatGPT4. Curiosity got the best of me.

I knew this would be a short term experiment but I saw so many tik tok videos raving about the new upgrades that I gave me.

After playing with it for a few hours now, I do not see what the big deal is. It feels the same as the original ChatGPT3 when it first came out. Before they started to add restrictions to it. I then decided to ask what the new change was so I could maximize on the upgrade. Here was my exchange - you be the judge…

ME: Give me concise bullet list of what you can do that is better than the previous versions.

GPT4: Improved language understanding: Better grasp of context, nuance, and complex language structures.
Enhanced knowledge base: More up-to-date information with a cutoff in September 2021.
More coherent responses: Better at maintaining context throughout longer conversations.
Advanced multitasking: Capable of handling multiple topics and tasks in a single conversation.
Enhanced summarization: Better at distilling long passages into concise summaries.
More creative text generation: Improved ability to generate creative and diverse content.
Stronger error correction: Better at identifying and correcting grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors.
Reduced harmful and biased outputs: Improved safety mitigations to minimize offensive or harmful content.


It can handle like 25k words now I think?

I thought it would be something massively impressive. I am not feeling it.
