OpenAI, the renowned artificial intelligence company, has recently filed a trademark application for “GPT-5,” its next version of the popular large language model. According to tech news outlet GHacks, the company is currently in the “new application processing stage” for various AI and language model categories, such as computer programs, artificial speech, and natural language processing.
The news comes after CEO Sam Altman denied rumors earlier this year that OpenAI was developing GPT-5. However, the filing of the trademark application suggests that we may soon see the emergence of this new model. If released, GPT-5 could have a significant impact on artificial intelligence and potentially transform our lives, similar to the effects of ChatGPT last year.
The trademark application includes a comprehensive list of aspects associated with GPT-5, such as downloadable computer programs, artificial speech, text production, natural language processing, understanding and analysis, machine-learning-based language, speech processing, language translation, sharing datasets for machine learning, predictive analytics, and building language models.
While OpenAI has not officially confirmed the development of GPT-5, reputable AI developers claim that the company plans to release it later this year. AI dev Siqi Chen stated that GPT-5 is scheduled to complete training in December, with OpenAI expecting to achieve what is known as “artificial general intelligence” (AGI). AGI refers to an AI system that can think and behave like a human.
If GPT-5 does possess AGI, it could potentially revolutionize AI applications. For example, it could enable ChatGPT to deduce and infer solutions like humans, thereby solving complex problems. OpenAI could integrate GPT-5 into robots, making them capable of following orders and performing mental and physical tasks.
However, the development of human-like AI raises concerns about how to handle its potential impact. OpenAI, as a leader in AI development, has been proactive in addressing this issue. CEO Sam Altman recently attended the first-ever Senate hearing on AI development, emphasizing his commitment to creating and following AI regulations. OpenAI has also formed a team, led by Ilya Sutskever, to supervise and control future AI “superintelligence.”
The Superalignment team aims to train AI systems on tasks that humans cannot handle, understand and control their models’ ability to spot tasks that humans overlook, and develop scalable training methods. OpenAI’s dedication to responsible AI development and regulation is crucial in ensuring the safe and beneficial use of advanced AI technologies.
As we await further details about GPT-5, it is clear that the development of AI with human-like capabilities poses challenges and opportunities. Proper regulations and ethical considerations are essential to harness the potential benefits while mitigating the risks. Stay tuned for more updates on OpenAI’s progress in the field of artificial intelligence.
