What else does GPT-4, the latest version of the language model, have to offer? We’ve rounded up some of what we thought were the most surprising points for you. The list does not claim to be complete – but it is always curious! Speaking of which, some of the points below are from mashable.com.
But before we plunge into the fantastic new world of GPT-4, we want to briefly pick up all those readers who are now wondering what GPT even is.
Everything new with GPT-4?
While GPT-3 recently caused a sensation in the media, GPT-4 is the next truckload of surprises. As colleague Jan Stahnke has already reported, the language model GPT-4 was presented in the recent past – more precisely: on March 9, 2023.
GPT is developed by the US technology company OpenAI. The abbreviation GPT stands for Generative Pretrained Transformer. GPT serves as the basis for many contemporary AI products. ChatGPT is probably the best known of these so far.
By the way: colleague Maxe Schwind swung the cooking spoon together with ChefGPT. You can find out from Maxe below whether artificial intelligence has what it takes to be a chef.
But enough of the preliminary banter. Let’s start with the four things that GTP-4 can do better than its predecessor.
1. Part-automate online dating
Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Lovoo – and whatever these dating apps are called. Anyone who plunges into the dating jungle knows that the next dating burnout is not far away because of all the horror dates and ghosting attacks. Jake Kozloski, co-founder of the dating service Keeper, demonstrated via Twitter how GPT-4 can be used to view potential life partners.

This should work above all if the person looking for a partner knows their preferences – and has made a pre-selection of acceptable life partners.
In other words: If you have several interested parties at hand, then let an AI make the selection. Is a non-smoker:
Check! May go to the next round!. Collect Diddl Mice:
No chance! Active in local politics:
Wow, absolutely hot! Marry me!
Call me efficient, but if the approach works to avoid having to meet unsuitable partners in the first place, I’ll say:
Yes, GPT-4, spare me further ghost train rides!
2. Take off as a gangster rapper
Tech editor Jan-Keno Janssen from c’t compares the chanting skills of GPT-3 with those of GPT-4. You read that right!
How does it sound when alpha bros with neck tattoos sing about hydroelectric power stations?, asks Janssen – and asks the AI language model to write a track about hydroelectric power plants. The lyrical outpourings that GPT-3 delivers on this can be expanded from an artistic point of view:
“But there are other gangsters out there,
trying to disrupt my business
they want to take over my hydroelectric power station,
but I will never let that happen.”
A little gaping and less groovy, right? Then it’s time: Curtain up for GPT-4! At least when it comes to hydropower, the language model of the next generation is recommended as the successor to Antifuchs, Badmómzjay, Sido and whatever the names of the masked prefab residents are not. Read it yourself:
“Hydropower, gangster rap, we’re tearing up the dam,
With the power of water, yo, we pump out the jam
Hydropower, gangster style, we’ll take it in hand
With the energy of the rivers, yo, we rock the whole country
It may not be enough for a worldwide hit, but the result reads much smoother with GPT-4.
Anyone who grew up in the 90s knows the best show that is about nothing:
Seinfeld. And anyone who knows Seinfeld will also get over it in the last few weeks
Nothing Forever stumbled – and pulled his funny bone at it.
Nothing Forever is a GPT-3 powered quasi-sequel to the hit sitcom from the previous century. What GPT-3 conjures up is very close to the typical Seinfeld banter about supposed trifles – but not always. Sometimes GPT-3 also produces chilling things.
Nothing Forever would like to be pushed into the uncanny valley of entertainment: right here below you will find a link to a best-of clip.

Especially the story arcs generated by GPT-3, which stretch over several episodes, seem subtly immature and won’t lose the screenwriter’s job for the time being.
So let’s wait and see if the next season of [hier eine Streaming-Serie beim Streaming-Dienstleister eurer Wahl einsetzen!] will soon be written by GPT-4 – or at least help the writers with their text work.
4. View all jobs that GPT-4 will replace
Rowan Cheungthe founder of the AI newsletter
The RundownGPT-4 asked a question that is probably burning under the nails of many employees of the Federal Employment Agency:
Which job, dear GPT-4, will you replace? GPT-4 promptly provides the answers as to which jobs the language model could fill on the job market – and which associated task the AI can do better than humans.
What jobs will GTP-4 take on? The list given by Rowan Cheung includes occupations such as – here is a random listing: proofreader, translator or news reporter. Specifically, GPT-4 has the attention to detail of a proofreader, the language proficiency of a translator, and the fact-checking and writing skills of a news reporter.
As a full-time writer and counter-reader, the author of this article says:
When can I finally start my retraining as a gardener?.

But rummage through Rowan’s list yourself – and find out whether your work might be replaced by artificial intelligence tomorrow. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that that won’t be the case!
Did you find this list entertaining and entertaining – or are you already trembling in the face of the areas of life in which GTP-4 stands apart? Will you hand over mate selection entirely to the language model, or do you prefer to hug a significant other at the cheese counter? Feel free to discuss cheese, AI, and kisses in our comments!
