When GPT-5 comes out, the current ChatGPT will be laughed at for being so bad.

OpenAI is officially not confirming it, but they are currently working on the GPT-5 language model. According to an executive at the company, a year from now, today's ChatGPT will be considered 'laughably bad.'
When GPT-5 comes out

OpenAI – ChatGPT

ChatGPT began to increase its popularity with OpenAI’s GPT-3 artificial intelligence language model, and with the release of the GPT-4 model, the capabilities of the chat robot were significantly enhanced. Although OpenAI has not officially confirmed it, they are currently working on the GPT-5 language model, expected to be the next iteration after GPT-4. According to a senior executive at the company, future versions of ChatGPT will receive significant upgrades.

GPT-5 will bring substantial improvements to ChatGPT

We don’t know when OpenAI plans to release GPT-5, but according to a company executive, future iterations of ChatGPT will be a significant upgrade that will make previous versions of the chat robot seem inadequate. OpenAI COO Brad Lightcap said in a statement, “I think when we look back in a year, we’ll realize how ridiculously bad ChatGPT is now.”

According to Lightcap, the current prompt-based nature of ChatGPT is not seen as a long-term viable approach, but rather, he envisions transitioning to a world where they can tackle more complex tasks. In this near-future vision, users will interact with artificial intelligence that can engage with them more intimately and truly serve as a companion. The change will be so significant that conversing with AI models will be akin to talking to a friend or colleague.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman made similar remarks about future iterations of ChatGPT in statements made days and weeks ago: “GPT-4 will be the dumbest model any of you will ever have to use,” he said.

Lightcap emphasizes

Lightcap emphasizes that artificial intelligence will play a role in supporting economies by creating new job opportunities rather than causing job losses. The biggest risk in artificial intelligence, he says, is “energy consumption.” As OpenAI and other companies strive to develop smarter AI systems, the number of GPUs required and consequently the power consumption increases. This is believed to be a challenge that needs to be overcome in the near future.
