What does ChatGPT Plus offer?
As far the proposition is concerned, the free plan is available when demand is low, offers standard response speed along with regular model updates. The ChatGPT Plus subscription plan, on the other hand, is available even when demand is high, and offers faster response speed. It also offers priority access to new features to the subscription. In addition to these, the ChatGPT Plus subscription plan also offers the newly introduced GPT-4 to the subscribers.
However, if users do not want to pay for access, they can still enjoy the ChatGPT experience by searching for it on Bing.
For the unversed, GPT-4 is more creative and collaborative than its predecessors. It can also accept images as inputs and generate captions, classifications, and analyses. Additionally, GPT-4 is capable of handling over 25,000 words of text, Compared to GPT-3.5, the new AI model is also more reliable and capable of handling complex instructions.
GPT-4 outperforms existing large language models (LLMs), including most state-of-the-art (SOTA) models which may include benchmark-specific construction or additional training methods.
“We’ve created GPT-4, the latest milestone in OpenAI’s effort in scaling up deep learning,” the company had said in a blogpost at the time.
