OpenAI put artificial intelligence (AI) back in the public discourse amid its launch of ChatGPT late last year. Since then, OpenAI has released different iterations of ChatGPT, with ChatGPT-4 launching in March.
In April, OpenAI founder Sam Altman said the company still had a lot of work to do with ChatGPT-4 before working on the fifth version of the AI chatbot and search engine.
