AInsights: Your executive-level insights on the latest in generative AI…

OpenAI introduced GPT-4o, its new flagship, real-time generative AI model. The “o” stands for “omni,” which refers to the model’s ability to process multimodal prompts including text, voice, and video.

During its live virtual event, OpenAI CTO Mira Murati explained this version’s significance, “…this is incredibly important, because we’re looking at the future of interaction between ourselves and machines.”

Let’s dive-in to the announcement to explore the new features and what it means to you and me…

Increased Context Window

GPT-4o has a massive 128,000 token context window, equivalent to around 300 pages of text. This allows it to process and comprehend much larger volumes of information compared to previous models, making it invaluable for tasks like analyzing lengthy documents, reports, or datasets.

Multimodal Capabilities

One of the most notable additions is GPT-4o’s multimodal capabilities, allowing it to understand and generate content across different modalities:

Vision: GPT-4o can analyze images, videos, and visual data, opening up applications in areas like computer vision, image captioning, and video understanding.

Text-to-Speech: It can generate human-like speech from text inputs, enabling voice interfaces and audio content creation.

Image Generation: Through integration with DALL-E 3, GPT-4o can create, edit, and manipulate images based on text prompts.

These multimodal skills make GPT-4o highly versatile and suitable for a wide range of multimedia applications.


Perhaps most importantly, CPT-4o features several advancements that make it a more empathetic and emotionally intelligent chatbot. In emotionally-rich scenarios such as healthcare, mental health, and even HR and customer service applications, sympathy, empathy, communications, and other human skills are vital. To date, chatbots have been at best, transactional, and at worst, irrelevant and robotic.

ChatGPT, introduces several key advancements that make it a more empathetic and emotionally intelligent chatbot.

Emotional Tone Detection: GPT-4o can detect emotional cues and the mood of the user from text, audio, and visual inputs like facial expressions. This allows it to tailor its responses in a more appropriate and empathetic manner.

Simulated Emotional Reactions: The model can output simulated emotional reactions through its text and voice responses. For example, it can convey tones of affection, concern, or enthusiasm to better connect with the user’s emotional state.

Human-like Cadence and Tone: GPT-4o is designed to mimic natural human cadences and conversational styles in its verbal responses. This makes the interactions feel more natural, personal, and emotionally resonant.

Multilingual Support: Enhanced multilingual capabilities enable GPT-4o to understand and respond to users in multiple languages, facilitating more empathetic communication across cultural and linguistic barriers.

By incorporating these emotional intelligence features, GPT-4o can provide more personalized, empathetic, and human-like interactions. Studies show that users are more likely to trust and cooperate with chatbots that exhibit emotional intelligence and human-like behavior. As a result, GPT-4o has the potential to foster stronger emotional connections and more satisfying user experiences in various applications.

Improved Knowledge

GPT-4o has been trained on data up to April 2023, providing it with more up-to-date knowledge compared to previous models. This is important for tasks that require more current information, such as news analysis, market research, industry trends, or monitoring rapidly evolving situations.

Cost Reduction

OpenAI has significantly reduced the pricing for GPT-4o, making it more affordable for developers and enterprises to integrate into their applications and workflows. Input tokens are now one-third the previous price, while output tokens are half the cost. Input tokens refer to the individual units of text that are fed into a machine learning model for processing. In the context of language models like GPT-4, tokens can be words, characters, or subwords, depending on the tokenization method used.

Faster Performance

Optimizations have been made to GPT-4o, resulting in faster, near real-time response times compared to its predecessor. This improved speed can enhance user experiences, enable real-time applications, and accelerate time to output.


For executives, GPT-4o’s capabilities open up new possibilities for leveraging AI across various business functions, from content creation and data analysis to customer service and product development. It’s more human than its predecessors and designed to engage in ways that are also more human.

Its multimodal nature allows for more natural and engaging interactions, while its increased context window and knowledge base enable more comprehensive and informed decision-making. Additionally, the cost reductions make it more accessible for enterprises to adopt and scale AI solutions powered by GPT-4o.

Here are some creative ways people are already building on ChatGPT-40.
