The newest GPT model from OpenAI, GPT-4, has been adopted by a wide variety of AI chatbots, including Microsoft’s Bing and ChatGPT. Although just two months have passed since the release of GPT-4, anticipation for OpenAI’s next model, GPT-5, has already reached a fever pitch. The excitement about GPT-5 only seems to grow. Keep reading to find out when you can expect to see the release of the GPT-5 model.
GPT-5 Expected Release Timeline
- GPT-5 might be released in late 2023 or early 2024.
We don’t have any concrete information regarding the release date of OpenAI’s GPT-5 model. However, since GPT-4 was released in March 2023, we could anticipate the release date to be around the end of this year, likely December 2023.
Furthermore, the CEO of Runway, Siqi Chen, tweeted that “GPT-5 is scheduled to complete training this December,” further solidifying the claim.
Despite this, when the OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was asked about the development of the GPT-5 model, he replied, “We are not and won’t for some time.” This makes it clear that OpenAI isn’t planning to launch GPT-5 any time this year. However, if we look at the AI race going on right now, with models Google Bard getting more advanced, OpenAI should develop the model soon and release it as early as possible.
If not, OpenAI should release GPT-4.5 first (in 2023) and hold on to GPT-5 for 2024.
Will OpenAI Release GPT-4.5 First?
Other analysts believe that OpenAI will release GPT-4.5 in October 2023 to bridge the gap between GPT-4 and GPT-5. GPT-4.5 will supposedly be the first version to process textual and visual data to perform multimodal analysis. This was first unveiled and demonstrated in the March 2023 GPT-4 Developer livestream.
Furthermore, OpenAI has several kinks to work out of the GPT-4 model before going to GPT-5. GPT-4 has a long inference time and high cost, and accessing its API is challenging. Plus, OpenAI only recently released ChatGPT and web browsing plugins in Beta form. That’s why analysts believe OpenAI will launch GPT-4.5 before GPT-5.
The release date of GPT-5 is still uncertain, but it will likely be sometime in 2024. OpenAI has several challenges to overcome and improvements to make on the GPT-4 model before moving forward with GPT-5. Users will have to wait patiently for further updates on the release timeline of GPT-5. Let us know your thoughts and when you anticipate the release date.
