Andreas Braun, CTO of Microsoft Germany, has recently confirmed the release of OpenAI GPT-4. He recently announced that a new multimodal AI, i.e., GPT-4, is coming by the mid of March 2023. This model will deliver entirely diverse opportunities.

Open AI GPT-4

The main thing that made OpenAI GPT-4 a completely different model is that it is multimodal. A multimodal AI can work with diverse inputs like sounds, images, and videos. The earlier versions of GPT, i.e., GTP-3 and GPT-3.5, work only with a single modality: text. 

What Is Modality?

Modality refers to a reference to the type of input, i.e., with how many inputs it can deal with. For example, in the case of GPT 3 and 3.5, it deals with an only single input, so it works on a single modality. But in the case of GPT4, it deals with multiple inputs, including sounds, videos, texts, and images. So, it is said to work on various modalities

Holger Kenn, Microsoft’s Director of Business Strategy, explains multimodal AI. He says that a multimodal AI is one which not only translates text into images but also into videos and audio.


There is another interesting fact that Microsoft is also working on trust metrics, and it is doing so to ground its AI with the facts to make it more steadfast. Along with this, something was also underreported in the US. In early March 2023, Microsoft makes the release Kosmos-1, which is a multimodal language model. 


Kosmos-1 is a multimodal model that works on multiple modalities, including images and texts. But GPT-4 is an extended version of Kosmos-1. It includes two modalities, videos and audio, along with the two modalities of Kosmos-1. 

Microsoft OpenAI GPT-4 Vs. GoogleAI MUM

The reports show GPT-4 can perform the job in numerous languages. For example, you can ask any question in French and get its answer in another language like Spanish. There is a point of breakthrough which is that it transfers knowledge into different languages beyond the language in its ability. 

This makes GPT-4 similar to MUM, a multimodal AI of Google. The goal of MUM is also the same as that of GPT-4.

Microsoft vs google

As GPT-4 is a fantastic technology, there is no disclosure regarding the application of GPT-4, i.e., where it will be used. However, there was mainly the name Azure OpenAI. Also, Google is competing with Microsoft and incorporating other search engine techniques, and Google is doing so to give tough competition to Microsoft. 

Although Google has aided individuals by using AI in the form of assistive technology, it has already integrated AI into its different products like Google maps, lens, etc. Google has majorly incorporated AI in the products where the majority of user engagement with the company exists. 


There is no doubt that Microsoft is putting AI into more best practices than Google. It has already caught up with the technology that Google is trying to catch up with. Also, with the news that OpenAI GPT-4 is arriving by mid-March, Microsoft has become the topic of discussion among everyone. Indeed, the new technology of Microsoft, i.e., GPT-4, will stump all others off the ground, especially Google, if it fails to catch up to Microsoft.
