OpenAI CEO Predicts Significant GPT-5 Progress, Warning of Consequences for Underestimators

March 19, 2024 – In a recent development, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has publicly stated for the first time that the upcoming GPT-5 model will bring about significant improvements, and anyone or any company underestimating this progress will be left behind.

According to reports, Altman made these remarks while attending an event in Silicon Valley, emphasizing that the performance enhancements of GPT-5 will exceed expectations. “With each subsequent model, GPT has demonstrated the need for more novel features, leading to the inevitable displacement and disappearance of various aspects of daily life and numerous sectors within business,” he said.

Furthermore, Altman believes that there are no limitations to the GPT model and that building an artificial general intelligence (AGI) that surpasses human capabilities is not a difficult task, provided there are sufficient computing resources invested.

During an exchange with a group of Korean journalists, Altman commented that many startups are mistakenly assuming that GPT-5 will only achieve minor advancements instead of significant progress. “As is often the case when technological disruptions occur, these startups underestimating the capabilities of GPT-5 will be left in the dust by the next generation of models,” he warned.

In a previous tweet, Altman also hinted that OpenAI’s products this year will change human history. With such bold statements and high expectations surrounding GPT-5, it remains to be seen how this development will unfold and impact various industries and sectors.
