OpenAI said on Tuesday that it has begun training a new flagship artificial intelligence model that will succeed the GPT-4 technology that powers its popular online chatbot, ChatGPT.

The San Francisco startup, one of the world's leading AI companies, said in a blog post that it expects the new model to bring the “next level of capabilities” as it uses “artificial general intelligence” or AGI tries to create , a machine can do anything a human mind can do. The new model will be an engine for AI products including chatbots, digital assistants like Apple's Siri, search engines and image generators.

OpenAI also said it is forming a new safety and security committee to explore how it should deal with the new model and threats posed by future technologies.

“While we are proud to build and release models that lead the industry in both capabilities and safety, we welcome a robust debate at this critical moment,” the company said.

OpenAI aims to advance AI technology faster than its competitors, as well as appease critics who say the technology is becoming increasingly dangerous, spreading misinformation, displacing jobs and destroying humanity. Contributing to endangerment. Experts disagree on when tech companies will reach artificial general intelligence, but companies including OpenAI, Google, Meta, and Microsoft have steadily increased the power of AI technologies for more than a decade, nearly show a significant jump every two to three years.

OpenAI's GPT-4, released in March 2023, enables chatbots and other software apps to answer questions, write emails, create term papers and analyze data. A more recent version of the technology, which was unveiled this month and is not yet widely available, can also create images and respond to questions and commands in a highly conversational voice.

Days after OpenAI showed off the updated version – called GPT-4o – actress Scarlett Johansson said it used a voice that was “very similar to mine”. He said he had rebuffed OpenAI Chief Executive Sam Altman's attempts to license his voice for the product and had hired a lawyer and had the voice from OpenAI. Was told to stop using. The company said the voice did not belong to Ms Johansson.

Technologies like GPT-4o learn their skills by analyzing vast amounts of digital data, including sounds, images, videos, Wikipedia articles, books and news. The New York Times filed a lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft in December, claiming copyright infringement for news content about AI systems.

Digital “training” of AI models can take months or even years. After training is complete, AI companies typically spend several more months testing the technology and fine-tuning it for public use.

This could mean that the next model of OpenAI won't arrive for another nine months to a year or more.

As OpenAI trains its new model, its new safety and security committee will work to improve policies and processes to protect the technology, the company said. The committee includes Mr. Altman as well as OpenAI board members Brett Taylor, Adam D'Angelo and Nicole Seligman. The company said the new policies could take effect in late summer or fall.

Earlier this month, OpenAI said that Ilya Sutskever, a co-founder and one of the leaders of its security efforts, was leaving the company. This raised concerns that OpenAI was not adequately addressing the threats posed by AI.

Dr. Sutskewer joined three other board members in November in calling for Mr. Altman to be removed from OpenAI, saying that Mr. Altman was over the company's plans to create artificial general intelligence for the good of humanity. Can no longer be trusted. After a lobbying campaign by Mr. Altman's allies, he was reinstated five days later and has since regained control of the company.

Dr. Sutskever led what OpenAI called its Superalignment Team, which looked for ways to ensure that future AI models are not damaged. Like others in the field, he became concerned that AI was a threat to humanity.

John Lake, who ran the Super Alignment team with Dr. Suitscure, resigned from the company this month, leaving the team's future in doubt.

OpenAI has integrated its long-term security research into its broader efforts to ensure that its technologies are secure. The work will be led by another co-founder, John Shulman, who previously led the team that built ChatGPT. The new safety committee will oversee Dr. Shulman's research and provide guidance to the company on how to address technical risks.
