In January, ChatGPT Failed The Bar. In March, GPT-4 Exceeds The Nationwide Student Average.
In 2011, Apple introduced Siri. This voice recognition system was designed as an ever-present digital assistant, that could help you with anything, anytime, anywhere. In 2014, Amazon introduced Alexa, which was designed to serve a similar purpose. Nearly a decade later, neither product has ever reached its potential. They are mostly niche tools that are used for very discrete purposes. Today’s New York Times explains how Siri, Alexa, as well as Google Assistant lost the A.I. race to tools like GPT. Now, we have another notch in the belt of OpenAI’s groundbreaking technology.
Yesterday, OpenAI released GPT-4. To demonstrate how powerful this tool is, the company allowed a number of experts to take the system for a spin. In the legal corner were Daniel Martin Katz, Mike Bommarito, Shang Gao, and Pablo Arredondo. In January 2023, Katz and Bommarito studied whether GPT-3.5 could pass the bar. At that time, the AI tech achieved an overall accuracy rate of about 50%.
In their paper, the authors concluded that GPT-4 may pass the bar “within the next 0-18 months.” The low-end of their estimate proved to be accurate.
Fast-forward to today. Beware the Ides of March. Katz, Bommarito, Gao, and Arredondo posted a new paper to SSRN
