GPT-4o is the new version of ChatGPT

With the new version GPT-4o (“o” stands for “omni”), OpenAI wants to make the interaction between humans and computers “much more natural”. Users can now enter any combination of texts, audio files as well as images and videos into the input. And GPT-4o can also combine texts, audios and images as desired for output.

The new ChatGPT version is particularly fast. A response to an audio input only takes 232 milliseconds. According to OpenAI, this corresponds to the human reaction time and thus enables actual conversations between humans and machines.

Previous versions of ChatGPT required significantly more time. The average latency for calls with GPT-3.5 was 2.8 seconds and 5.4 seconds with GPT-4.

In example videos, OpenAI shows the possible applications for the new version of ChatGPT. For example, a math problem is solved here. However, GPT-4o does not simply provide the solution, but rather provides support with advice on possible calculation methods.
