Asus Zenbook 14 OLED laptop review



Asus Zenbook 14 OLED laptop
Asus ZenBook 14 OLED laptop has the same feeling we experienced with the MacBook Air M1 three years ago thanks to the Intel Core Ultra processor.

Asus Zenbook 14 OLED laptop review

Asus ZenBook 14 is one of the most important laptops of recent years; Not because it’s a Zenbook or because of its 120Hz OLED screen and 1.2kg weight, but because it gives us the same feeling we experienced when we reviewed the MacBook Pro M1 more than 3 years ago; So, join me to review the performance of the first laptop in the Iranian market with the 14th generation Meteor Lake processor by reviewing the Zenbook 14 OLED.

If you haven’t been away from the world of technology for the past few years, you probably know that in 2020, Apple took its first step to become independent from Intel and launched the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with the exclusive M1 chip. Laptops that made a lot of noise from the beginning with their very good performance, excellent charging, stunning productivity, and also caused Intel a big problem.

Intel struggled for three years to be able to reach the productivity level of its processors of Apple’s M series; From the end of 2020 until just a month or two ago, the 11th, 12th, and 13th generations were launched one after the other; But none of them could even compete with M1 in terms of performance to power consumption ratio, let alone the next generations of this chip; But it seems that finally, after three years, it is going to go down the throat of Windows users!

Intel’s 14th generation Core Ultra processors are the beginning of a trend in the world of Windows laptops that Apple launched for the first time more than three years ago with its own chips in Mac laptops. Intel says Meteorlake processors are the biggest change in the company’s 40-year history of processor architecture.

Earlier in the article ” All about Meteor Lake; Intel’s revolution in laptop processors with tiles! » We talked in detail about the architecture of Mythurelik processors; But in summary, I must mention that things like island design with separate CPU and GPU tiles, the addition of neural processing unit for AI processes, focus on improving the performance of integrated graphics, improving productivity and of course, the new naming format are among the most important changes of Mythorlik compared to Reptorlik.

Fast performance and great charging with Mitorelic

Asus offers the Zenbook 14 OLED laptop with three models of Mitolake processors including Core Ultra 5 125H, Core Ultra 155H, and Core Ultra 185H. These processors differ in terms of the number of powerful CPU cores, the number of GPU cores, and the base and maximum frequencies of the cores. We had the Core Ultra 7 model on hand for review, which rivals Apple’s entry-level M1, M2, and even M3 chips.

Zenbook 2024; Windows laptop curse breaker!

The new Asus Ultrabook can be purchased with 8, 16, or 32 GB of onboard RAM (soldered to the motherboard) and a 512 GB or 1 TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD. Note that the 16GB and 32GB models use LPDDR5X RAM; While the RAM model is 8 GB of LPDDR5 type; The difference between these two types of RAM is due to their difference in the maximum data exchange rate.

We had the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED laptop with 32GB of high-speed LPDDR5X-7467 RAM from SK Hynix and a 1TB SSD with a 4-lane PCIe Gen 4.0 interface from SanDisk available for review. We obtained the reading and writing speed of the device’s SSD as 4964.69 and 3292.99 MB, respectively, which is not a very favorable speed compared to the price tag of the product and the PCIe Gen 4.0 interface of the SSD itself.

Let’s talk a little about the technical specifications of the processor that powers the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED. The Core Ultra 7 155H processor can be seen as a weakened version of the Core Ultra 9 185H, the highest member of the 14th generation of the Metierlik family; Because all the technical specifications are the same from the number of cores to their graphics processing unit, only Core Ultra 7 cores work at a much lower frequency; A difference that also leads to a reduction in chip consumption.

Mythurelic chips consist of Compute and Graphics tiles and SoC along with IO; The Compute tile hosts high-power cores (P Core) and optimized cores (E Core), the Graphics tile plays the role of the graphics processing unit, the IO tile hosts the communication paths of the chip including Thunderbolt, and the SoC tile houses very low-power cores for background processing. (LP E Cores), neural processing unit (NPU) and communication units with the display and media encoding and decoding blocks; Therefore, the CPU is placed in two tiles and is a combination of three types of cores.

Meteorlake processors are the best Windows tools so far to compete with MacBooks

The Core Ultra 7 155H chip consists of 6 P-Core cores, 8 E-Core cores, and 2 LP E-Core cores, with base frequencies of 1.4 GHz, 900 and 700 MHz and turbo frequencies of 4.8, 3.8, and 2.5, respectively. It uses GHz as a CPU, and in total, 22 processing threads are processed at the same time; Therefore, only high-power P-Core cores benefit from multithreading. Compute tile is produced with Intel 4 7nm lithography.

Running CineBench test on Asus Zenbook 14 laptop

The Graphics tile in the Core Ultra 7 155H chip is powered by 8 ray tracing units and 8 Xe cores including 128 Vector engines with a maximum frequency of 2.25 GHz. Intel allows companies to name the integrated Core Ultra 7 155H graphics in laptops with at least 16 GB of RAM, reminiscent of the Arc series desktop graphics cards. Graphics tile is produced with TSMC’s N5 5nm lithography.

Manufacturing companies can use the Core Ultra 7 155H chip, depending on the cooling capacity of their laptops, with a thermal design power of 28 to 115 watts; So on paper, this chip will be a good choice for both light and thin ultrabooks like Zenbook and powerful gaming laptops.

Asus has developed software called MyASUS for Zenbook family laptops, which is considered a device management hub. With MyASUS, you can get firmware and software updates and change performance profiles or display profiles. A number of AI-based features such as removing microphone noise are also available in this software.

MyASUS software on Asus Zenbook 14 laptop

Asus provides performance profiles in a part of the MyASUS software called Fan Profile and in three modes: Whisper mode (lowest possible mode), Standard mode (default mode and suitable for daily use), and Performance mode (suitable for heavy use). Asus says Performance mode is only suitable for when the device is plugged in.

In the upcoming review, we put the performance of the laptop under the microscope in different scenarios, including the state connected to the power and disconnected from the power outlet, with Performance and Standard modes, so that you can have a good view of the capabilities of the 14th generation and expensive Asus ultrabook.

It is not surprising that Asus used the Core Ultra 7 155H chip with a TDP of about 28 watts in its thin and slim Ultrabook; But with this TDP range, what performance can we expect from the ZenBook 14 OLED?

By looking at these basic benchmarks, we can notice some interesting points. Asus ZenBook 14 with the Core Ultra 7 155H chip is about 10% weaker in single-core processing than the previous generation with the Core i7-1360P chip; But in comparison with the M1 and M2 chips, sometimes the Intel chip leads with a difference of 5 to 10% [rendering benchmark] and sometimes it remains with a 10% difference from Apple’s competitor [computing power benchmark].

In some scenarios, the Core Ultra 7 is even faster than the Apple M2

When all the cores are involved in rendering or calculations, the Intel chip shows a brighter performance compared to the Apple chips; In this situation, thanks to the number of more cores and its more updated architecture, Core Ultra 7 takes the M1 and M2 chips ahead with a difference of 50-60% [rendering benchmark] or 30-50% [computing power benchmark]; Of course, in comparison with the previous generation, we see a smaller improvement of 25%.

Working with Asus Zenbook 14 laptop

It seems that this year Intel has focused most of its focus on improving the integrated graphics performance of its chips; In our tests, the Core Ultra 7 155H integrated graphics outperformed its previous generation by a stunning 100% in both computing power tests and game simulator tests.

AAA gaming experience on Ultrabook thanks to Mytorlake

Intel’s integrated graphics are now ahead of the M1 integrated graphics in terms of the computing power of the graphics with an impressive difference of 60%, and compared to the M2 chip, it wins the field with a difference of 20%; But in the game simulator tests, the superiority of Core Ultra 155H over M1 is limited to about 15%, and we see 15% weaker performance of the Intel chip against M2; However, there are still not many games available for MacBook.

Play with Asus Zenbook 14

If you think that the excellent performance of the integrated graphics of the Core Ultra 7 is limited to benchmarks, I must say that you are wrong. Intel’s integrated graphics processor now handles AAA games at Full HD resolution and medium graphics settings. The idea that one day with a thin and light ultrabook like the Zenbook and integrated Intel graphics, it would be possible to play games like Forza Horizon 5 or Cyberpunk 2077, seemed very unlikely until just last year.

Thanks to the Core Ultra 7 155H chip, the Zenbook 14 performs up to 10% better than the MacBook Pro M1 and M2 in Photoshop and beats the previous generation by 35%.

ZenBook 14 OLED performance in Photoshop

The performance of the new Zenbook in the Premier Pro software is more than 40% better than the previous generation and even beats the MacBook Pro M1 by more than 10%, But it is left behind the MacBook Pro M2 with a difference of 20%. Note that this laptop, just like its Apple competitors, can at best be a starting option for editing 1080p videos, nothing more.

ZenBook 14 OLED performance in Premier Pro

The interesting point for us was the performance of Zenbook 2024 in running Python codes; While in previous generations, even expensive laptops with Intel’s H-series processors were behind the MacBook M1 in this regard, now the 28-watt Core Ultra 7 155H processor is about 20% faster than the M1, and if it runs from the Linux Subsystem (WSL) instead of the PowerShell environment for Use coding, the advantage of Zenbook reaches 40%.

Performance of ZenBook 14 OLED in Python code execution

Apart from discussing the performance of the device in benchmarks and professional uses, we need to measure the state of the cooling system in uses that constantly put pressure on the processor.

To evaluate the state of the central processing unit (CPU), we put the laptop under a multi-core processing load continuously for 30 minutes. We performed this test in two modes connected to electricity and disconnected from the power outlet (Plugged/UnPlugged) with the Performance mode performance profile.

CPU frequency chart on Zenbook 14 OLED

As you can see in the graphs above, the laptop uses the CPU with the same frequency and the same power consumption in the Elixir of Science stress test, whether it is connected to the power or disconnected from the power outlet; Only when connected to power, the CPU has longer momentary jumps to higher frequencies, and in the initial moments it achieves a higher power consumption (60 W vs. 53 W) for a fraction of a second.

Fan sound in Asus Zenbook 14 laptop

Apart from the power consumption and frequency, the temperature of the hottest CPU core also remains below 90 degrees Celsius in the rest of the moments, except for the initial moments when it reaches about 107 degrees Celsius. During the stress test, the fan of the device also works with a low noise and the temperature of the device itself does not reach an annoying level.

Performance of M1 and M2 M1 and M2 exchanges in multi-core processing

In the past three years, Apple has always had the upper hand in terms of productivity and the ratio of performance to power consumption; But this year, Intel has changed the situation in its favor, at least in part of the story.

* The results of the table above were obtained in Elixir of Science tests.

The central processor (CPU) in the Dell Core Ultra 7 155H reaches a power consumption of about 65 watts while performing multi-core processing in very short periods of time; But its power consumption fluctuates stably in the range of 26 to 29 watts. This issue makes its productivity significantly improved compared to the previous generation and even equal to M1 and M2.

The ratio of performance to power consumption in ZenBook 14 OLED

As much as the Intel chip appears stunning in multi-core processing, it is still far behind Apple’s chips in single-core processing. In this situation, the power consumption of Core Ultra 7 155H is in the range of 22 to 24 watts; While the power consumption of the Apple chip is around 6 to 8 watts and the performance difference between the two chips is not much different; Therefore, we see a 70% weakness of Intel chip productivity in single-core processing compared to Apple chips.

In order to measure the performance status of the cooling system in continuous graphics processing with Performance mode performance profile and in both Plugged and UnPlugged modes, we put the Core Ultra 7 155H GPU under continuous processing pressure for 20 minutes.

The Core Ultra 7 155H graphics processor consumes about 18 watts in plugged mode and 16 to 17 watts in unplugged mode, and the graphics frequency fluctuates between 1900 and 1700 MHz, respectively.

The device’s graphics behave more aggressively compared to the CPU; So that in plugged mode, the temperature of its hottest point increases continuously and reaches about 100 degrees Celsius; But in UnPlugged mode, the graphics temperature remains in the range of 90 degrees Celsius.

Asus Zenbook 14 laptop temperature

In continuous graphic processing, the temperature of the body, especially the area above the keyboard of the device, reaches about 45 degrees Celsius; Of course, overall, the temperature doesn’t rise so much that it becomes difficult to work with the device, although the fan noise is a bit louder during heavy GPU processing than when the CPU is stressed.

Apart from stressful situations, Zenbook has a feeling similar to Apple’s MacBooks in normal and everyday use; In the sense that the device does not get hot, the sound is rarely heard, and more importantly, the performance of the device is more or less at the same level whether it is connected to electricity or disconnected from the power outlet; A problem that plagued Windows laptops for many years.

Plugged and UnPlugged performance of Zenbook 2024 is very close

The 14-inch Zenbook 14 OLED laptop provides the energy it needs with the help of its 75-watt-hour battery; Considering the 28-watt thermal design power of the device’s processor, this battery is considered an optimal capacity; Especially, the changes made in the architecture of Core Ultra processors have improved their productivity dramatically.

Asus Zenbook 14 has very low consumption in standby mode; so if you disconnect the device from the power outlet at night with a 100% charge, the laptop battery will be reduced by 4-5% by tomorrow morning.

This year, Intel has separated the video decoding engine and display output from the GPU tile and transferred it to the low-power SoC tile; Thus, when you are watching a movie or video, the GPU tile is completely turned off, and this leads to a significant improvement in charging the device during video playback; I played the Elixir of Science benchmark 720p video at 200 nits display brightness, 120 Hz refresh rate, and the Performance profile for 17 hours and 25 minutes; A result that separates Zenbook 14 from the category of Windows laptops and places it at the level of Apple MacBooks.

Zooming around with Asus Zenbook 14

The excellent charging of ZenBook 14 is not only limited to video playback, this laptop continuously charges for 9 hours and 9 minutes in daily use with 200 nits brightness, a constant refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a Performance profile, which is an admirable result.

Asus provides a compact 65W charger with Zenbook 14 that charges the laptop through the USB-C port; The weakness of this charger is the lack of ability to separate the USB-C cable from the adapter.

Minimal design, very light and extremely slim

If you think that all the charms of Zenbook 2024 come back to its very good performance and exemplary charging, you must be very wrong!

Open the Asus Zenbook 14 from the back

Asus laptop has a very minimal and attractive design. The entire body of the device is made of aluminum and is very strong, despite such strength, the weight of the laptop reaches only 1.2 kg and its thickness reaches 14.9 mm, which makes the 14-inch Zenbook an attractive option for those who are constantly moving.

Diagonal lines can be seen on the laptop door, which, while simple, add to the attractiveness of the device. The 14-inch Zenbook is sold in two colors, gray and blue. We had the blue color available for review, which, despite its beauty, has one of the weaknesses of the laptop design: the blue laptop body easily absorbs the user’s fat and fingerprints and reduces the beauty of the device.

Back design of Asus Zenbook 14 laptop

In addition to absorbing stains and hand fat, another weakness of the Zenbook design in my opinion is its hollowness; It seems that Asus designers, unlike companies like Apple or HP [in the Specter series], did not carve the body of the device from a block of aluminum and used thin aluminum sheets in the construction of the body. Not premium.

Remaining fingerprints on the Asus Zenbook 14 body

Although the thickness of the laptop does not exceed 15 mm; Asus engineers have been able to fit the operating ports in this slim body. The right side of the device hosts HDMI 2.1 ports, two USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 support and DisplayPort and PowerDelivery standards, and a combo audio jack; But on the left side, we only see the USB 3.2 Type-A port with a bandwidth of 5 Gb/s.

Zenbook 14 uses an island keyboard; The keys have a standard arrangement and a suitable distance from each other. The movement depth of the keys reaches 1.4 mm, and their feedback is considered favorable and quiet; The ZenBook 14 offers one of the best typing experiences we’ve had in a while. Within a short period of time, you can get used to typing with the device’s keyboard.

ZenBook 14’s trackpad is made of glass, has a decent area, and supports Microsoft’s precision drivers. We evaluate the performance of the trackpad as very accurate and smooth, and the feedback of the left and right click mechanism is also appropriate; But hopefully next year Asus will join the handful of manufacturers that use a MacBook-like haptic mechanism for their devices’ trackpads.

Asus Zenbook 14 trackpad dimensions

One of the weaknesses of the Zenbook 14 design is the lack of a glass cover on the display panel and the plastic edges around the panel. These plastic edges reduce the premium feel of the device; Of course, Asus says that the model is equipped with a touch screen, but it uses Gorilla Glass to protect the panel; We had the non-touch version available for review.

Asus Zenbook 14 webcam

On the upper border of the screen, we see a lot of openings for the webcam and facial recognition sensor, which are clearly visible due to the plasticity of the borders and negatively affect the appearance of the device. To protect the user’s privacy, Asus has also included a slider that physically covers the webcam.

Stunning OLED display with spectacular colors

The Zenbook’s less-than-pleasing plastic bezels are compensated by its stunning OLED display. The device uses a 3K or 1800 x 2880 pixel OLED panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports HDR, which produces extremely attractive and accurate colors, covers color spaces very well, has excellent brightness, and displays extremely high contrast.

In my measurements, the ZenBook 14 achieved a very good maximum brightness of 512 nits in everyday use and an excellent 788 nits when playing HDR videos. The minimum brightness of the device reached 0.27 nits, which is a good value for use in the dark.

OLED panels usually use PWM technology to achieve low brightness; In the sense that the pixels turn on and off at a high speed and if this speed is not higher than a limit, it will cause a headache in the user. To fix the problem, Asus suggests that you set the brightness slider in Windows settings to 60% and adjust the brightness of the device with the OLED Flicker Free Dimming function in MyASUS software to achieve low brightness.

Asus Zenbook 14 screen quality

In my tests, the ZenBook 14’s display was able to cover 89.6% of the extremely wide Adobe RGB space, 99.7% of the DCI P3 color space, and 100% of the sRGB space. The accuracy of the display in producing colors was also exemplary; So the color display error in the sRGB color space reached a stunning number of 0.6 and in the DCI P3 space it reached an excellent number of 1.3.

In long-term use, OLED panels are in danger of encountering the problem of burn-in, or in simple words, image burn. Asus suggests that you make the Windows taskbar semi-transparent or set it to Auto-Hide to reduce the possibility of burn-in. In addition, the ability to renew pixels is also available in MyASUS software.

Play movies with Asus Zenbook 14

In general, whether you are a web surfer, whether you use Photoshop software to edit photos and create graphic designs, whether you are interested in watching movies, in any case, the Zenbook display will satisfy you.

Asus has paired the Zenbook’s attractive display with powerful stereo speakers tuned by Harmon/Kardon, projecting sound to the bottom of the laptop, producing loud and clear sound, and supporting Dolby Atmos surround sound technology.

The 14-inch Zenbook 2024 has been one of the best ultrabooks of the past few years; Currently, the Core Ultra 7 155H model with 32GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and a 120Hz OLED and 3K screen is sold at a price of about 75 million Tomans, which is almost the same as the price of the MacBook Air M2 with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD. For years, Windows enthusiasts have been looking for a high-quality ultrabook that can provide them with the same experience as the MacBook Air. Currently, Zenbook 2024 is the closest option to what these people want, at least in the Iranian market.

The future of Windows laptops is no longer worrying

ZenBook 14 feels similar to Apple’s MacBooks in everyday use with excellent charging, fast performance, and quiet cooling. In Elixir of Science tests such as Photoshop and running Python codes, this ultrabook came close to the MacBook Air M2, in editing FHD videos at the level of the MacBook Air M1, it showed the same performance when connected to electricity and relying on the battery, and its 75 watt-hour battery was responsible for a day. It was a perfect job.

Intel’s Meteorlake processors gave a boost to the stagnant Windows laptop market and made the competition with Apple’s MacBooks a little more serious. I hope that this trend will continue in the next few months with Arrow Lake processors and of course with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite chips; Because more and more serious competition will ultimately benefit the consumer.

Unveiling of OpenAI new artificial intelligence capabilities





OpenAI claims that its free GPT-4o model can talk, laugh, sing, and see like a human. The company is also releasing a desktop version of ChatGPT’s large language model.

 Unveiling of OpenAI new artificial intelligence capabilities

Yesterday, OpenAI introduced the GPT-4o artificial intelligence model, which is a completely new model of the company’s artificial intelligence, which according to OpenAI is a step closer to a much more natural human-computer interaction.
This new model accepts any combination of text, audio, and image as input and can produce output in all three formats. It can also detect emotions, allow the user to interrupt it mid-speech, and respond almost as quickly as a human during a conversation.
In the live broadcast of the introduction of this new model, Meera Moratti, Chief Technology Officer of OpenAI, said: “The special thing about GPT-4o is that GPT-4 level intelligence has been made available to everyone, including our free users. This is the first time we’ve taken a big step forward in ease of use.
During the unveiling of the model, OpenAI demonstrated the GPT-4o, which translates live between English and Italian, with its intuitive ability to help a researcher solve a linear equation on paper in an instant, just by listening to The breaths of an OpenAI executive give him advice on deep breathing.
The letter “o” in the name of the GPT-4o model stands for the word “Omni”, which is a reference to the multifaceted capabilities of this model.
OpenAI said that GPT-4o is trained with text, images, and audio, meaning all input and output is processed by a neural network. This differs from the company’s previous models, including the GPT-3.5 and GPT-4, which allowed users to ask questions just by speaking, but then converted the speech to text. This would cause tone and emotion to be lost and interactions to slow down.
OpenAI will make this new model available for free to everyone, including ChatGPT users, over the next few weeks, and will also initially release a desktop version of ChatGPT for Apple computers (Mac) for users who have purchased a subscription, starting today. They will have access to it. The introduction of the new OpenAI model took place one day before the Google I/O event, which is the company’s annual developer conference.
It should be noted that shortly after OpenAI introduced GPT-4o, Google also presented a version of its artificial intelligence known as Gemini with similar capabilities.
While the GPT-4 model excelled at tasks related to image and text analysis, the GPT-4o model integrates speech processing and expands its range of capabilities.

Natural human-computer interaction

According to OpenAI, the GPT-4o model is a step towards a much more natural human-computer interaction that accepts any combination of text, audio, and image as input and produces any combination of text, audio and image.
This model can respond to voice inputs in less than 232 milliseconds, with an average speed of 320 milliseconds, which is similar to the response time of humans in a conversation.
This model matches the performance of the GPT-4 Turbo model on English text and code with a significant improvement in converting text to non-English languages while being much faster and 50% cheaper via application programming interface (API). The GPT-4o model is especially better in visual and audio understanding compared to existing models.

What exactly does the introduction of this model mean for users?

The GPT-4o model significantly enhances the experience of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s wildly popular AI chatbot. Users can now interact with ChatGPT like a personal assistant, ask it questions and even hang it up wherever they want.
Additionally, as mentioned, OpenAI is introducing a desktop version of ChatGPT along with a revamped user interface.
“We recognize the increasing complexity of these models, but our goal is to make the interaction experience more intuitive and seamless,” Moratti emphasized. We want users to focus on working with GPT instead of being distracted by the UI. Our new model can reason text, audio, and video in real-time. This model is versatile, fun to work with, and a step toward a much more natural form of human-computer interaction, and even human-computer-computer interaction.
The GPT-4o model has also been extensively reviewed by more than 70 experts in areas such as social psychology, bias and fairness, and misinformation to identify risks introduced or enhanced by the newly added methods. OpenAI has used these learnings to develop safety interventions to improve the safety of interacting with GPT-4o. The members of the OpenAI team demonstrated their audio skills during the public presentation of this new model. A researcher named Mark Chen emphasized its ability to gauge emotions and noted its adaptability to user interruptions.
Chen demonstrated the model’s versatility by requesting a bedtime story in a variety of tones, from dramatic to robotic, and even had it read to him. As mentioned, this new model is available for free to all ChatGPT users. Until now, GPT-4 class models were only available to people who paid a monthly subscription.
“This is important to us because we want to make great AI tools available to everyone,” said OpenAI CEO Sam Altman.

Strong market for generative artificial intelligence

OpenAI is leading the way in productive AI alongside Microsoft and Google, as companies across sectors rush to integrate AI-powered chatbots into their services to stay competitive.
For example, Anthropic, a competitor of OpenAI, recently unveiled its first corporate proposal to Apple to provide a free program for iPhones.
“We recognize that GPT-4o audio presentations present new risks,” OpenAI said in a statement. Today we’re publicly releasing text and image inputs and text outputs, and in the coming weeks and months, we’ll be working on the technical infrastructure, post-training usability, and security necessary to release other methods. For example, at startup, audio outputs are limited to a set of predefined sounds and adhere to our existing security policies. We will share more details about the full range of GPT-4o methods in a future system.
According to the report, the generative AI market saw a staggering $29.1 billion in investment across nearly 700 deals in 2023, up more than 260 percent from the previous year. Predictions indicate that the yield of this market will exceed one trillion dollars in the next decade. However, there are concerns about the rapid deployment of untested services by academics and ethicists who are troubled by the technology’s potential to perpetuate prejudice.
Since launching in November 2022, ChatGPT’s chatbot has broken records as the fastest-growing user base in history, with nearly 100 million weekly active users. OpenAI reports that more than 92% of the world’s top 500 companies use it.
At the presentation event last night, Moratti answered some questions from the audience and when he spoke in fluent Italian and the artificial intelligence translated his words into English, the hall was filled with excitement.
There is more. This means the next time you take a selfie, OpenAI’s artificial intelligence can assess your exact emotions. All you have to do is select a selfie and ask ChatGPT to tell you how you feel.
It should be said that OpenAI employees were so happy that ChatGPT asked them why they were so happy!
