Big Takeaway: At the World Government Summit, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said GPT 5 will be "better at everything across the board" than GPT 4.

  • Altman described GPT 5 as smarter, faster, and more multimodal, hinting that it will accept more types of input in the future. Maybe we will see speech-to-text!

  • He emphasized the model's “broad applicability,” noting that it offers improvements across a wide range of tasks rather than specializing in one.

  • OpenAI has not confirmed any details, people are speculating GPT 5 could be named "Gobi" and might launch in spring 2024, even though no specific timeline has been confirmed.

Big Takeaway: Amazon researchers have developed the largest text-to-speech model on the market, named BASE TTS (Big Adaptive Streamable TTS with Emergent abilities). (That was a mouthful.)

  • The discovery shows that, like large language models (LLMs), text-to-speech models gain significantly in performance and adaptability once they reach a certain size.

  • The study investigated different model sizes (980M, 400M, and 150M parameters) to determine at what scale emergent behaviors occur, and discovered a significant increase in capabilities in the medium-sized 400 million model.

  • BASE TTS aims to advance Amazon's AGI goals. It trained its largest version with 980 million parameters using 100,000 hours of public speech in English, German, Dutch, and Spanish.
