In his keynote, OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman revealed another major development: the extension of GPT-4 Turbo’s knowledge cutoff. Unlike GPT-4, which had information only up to 2021, GPT-4 Turbo is updated with knowledge up until April 2023, marking a significant step forward in the AI’s relevance and applicability.
ChatGPT Enterprise stands out with features like enhanced security and privacy, high-speed access to GPT-4, and extended context windows for longer inputs. Its advanced data analysis capabilities, customization options, and removal of usage caps make it a superior choice to its predecessors. Its ability to process longer inputs and files, along with unlimited access to advanced data analysis tools like the previously known Code Interpreter, further solidifies its appeal, especially among businesses previously hesitant due to data security concerns.
The era of manually crafting code is giving way to AI-driven systems, trained instead of programmed, signifying a fundamental change in software development.
The mundane tasks of programming may soon fall to AI, reducing the need for deep coding expertise. Tools like GitHub’s CoPilot and Replit’s Ghostwriter, which assist in coding, are early indicators of AI’s expanding role in programming, suggesting a future where AI extends beyond assistance to fully managing the programming process. Imagine the common scenario where a programmer forgets the syntax for reversing a list in a particular language. Instead of a search through online forums and articles, CoPilot offers immediate assistance, keeping the programmer focused towards to goal.
Transitioning from Low-Code to AI-Driven Development
Low-code & No code tools simplified the programming process, automating the creation of basic coding blocks and liberating developers to focus on creative aspects of their projects. But as we step into this new AI wave, the landscape changes further. The simplicity of user interfaces and the ability to generate code through straightforward commands like “Build me a website to do X” is revolutionizing the process.
AI’s influence in programming is already huge. Similar to how early computer scientists transitioned from a focus on electrical engineering to more abstract concepts, future programmers may view detailed coding as obsolete. The rapid advancements in AI, are not limitd to text/code generation. In areas like image generation diffusion model like Runway ML, DALL-E 3, shows massive improvements. Just see the below tweet by Runway showcasing their latest feature.

Extending beyond programming, AI’s impact on creative industries is set to be equally transformative. Jeff Katzenberg, a titan in the film industry and former chairman of Walt Disney Studios, has predicted that AI will significantly reduce the cost of producing animated films. According to a recent article from Bloomberg Katzenberg foresees a drastic 90% reduction in costs. This can include automating labor-intensive tasks such as in-betweening in traditional animation, rendering scenes, and even assisting with creative processes like character design and storyboarding.
