Users of the free version of ChatGPT were unexpectedly given access to GPT-4, the advanced version of OpenAI’s large language model. One user shared their experience on OpenAI’s official forum, sparking eager discussions among users. The joy was short-lived, however, as many users reported that they suddenly lost access to the feature after tinkering with it for a couple of days. This unexpected access coincides with the recent introduction of GPT-4 Turbo, and could be a strategic response to competitors like Claude, which has a Pro version, and Google Bard, which is free. This incident may be a clever ploy to stay ahead in the race for AI superiority, and underscores the rapidly changing dynamics of AI technology.
