I created a GPT-4 review video and also tested it against ChatGPT 3.5, check it out and let me know what you think. I also wrote about the specifics of the launch here. I won’t rehash the launch details, I plan on doing a few more videos on the capabilities of GPT-4, but I did want to share some of the coolest examples of GPT-4 being used for incredible projects. Here are some of my favorites.
