This new technology will not only serve as a tool that engages with users through the audio, but also will be able to recognize objects and images, among other features, according to sources familiar with the matter.  

The report also mentioned that these features will include a better understanding of image and audio, as well as improved logical reasoning. 

The new AI assistant is expected to be unveiled during OpenAI’s scheduled livestream today on the upcoming 13th of May, to announce some new updates related to their GPT technology. 

It could provide a range of functions, such as acting as a tutor for students who are working on papers or solving math problems and helps users to understand information from their surroundings, such as translating signs and giving them guidance when required, like providing them with instructions on how to fix something if ever they requested. 

It is worth mentioning that despite these major advancements, the new AI multimodal will surely face some challenges. Like any other AI system, this AI assistant can experience “hallucinations” by generating responses that lack verified evidence.

It is also worth mentioning that this new version will be available for free for both paid and free users, with the paid one enjoying greater limits. However, both users will have access to “browse” feature that allows ChatGPT to generate up-to-date information from the web.
