ChatGPT can recognize faces – OpenAI just isn’t promoting it…yet

ChatGPT 4 raises the bar with its advanced facial recognition capabilities.

OpenAI’s ChatGPT has been concealing a secret this whole time: it possesses the capability to perceive and identify faces, reports The New York Times. At least, this has been the case since the release of GPT-4.

This isn’t just another update folks; it’s a game-changing twist to our AI interaction story. Our beloved word wizard has essentially evolved to understand not only what we’re saying but how we’re saying it – smirk, raised eyebrow, and all.

This new feature allows the model to interpret facial expressions and respond accordingly, making the interaction more personalized and human-like.

For instance, if the user looks confused, the AI can detect this and offer to explain the topic in a simpler way. This could be a significant step forward in making AI more accessible and user-friendly.

Does anyone feel like OpenAI is throwing us into a real-life sci-fi plot?

We’re talking about privacy and data security here, people. Our faces aren’t just our meal ticket anymore. Nope, they’re currency in this bold new world of facial recognition technology.

And guess what? It’s shaky ground we’re stepping on, with a ton of uncertainty about how it can be exploited in the wrong hands.

OpenAI has assured users that it is taking these concerns seriously. The company told the New York Times that it will not store facial data and that the technology will only be used to improve the interaction between the user and the AI.

This development is a testament to the rapid advancements in AI technology

It’s a fascinating glimpse into a future where our interactions with AI could become as natural and intuitive as our interactions with each other.

However, as we move towards this future, it’s crucial to navigate the potential pitfalls and ensure that these technologies are used responsibly.

In the heart of Silicon Valley, where breakthroughs like this are a common occurrence, the news has been met with a mixture of excitement and caution.

As we continue to push the boundaries of what AI can do, it’s clear that the conversation around ethics and responsibility in AI will become increasingly important. ChatGPT 4 can now recognize and read people’s faces with facial recognition features.
