Omni my goodness!

🔥GPT4 Omni has been announced🔥… and in an AI world of jaw-dropping announcements, the fanfare was relatively low key, but this is absolutely huge. Technically the GPT-4o model is different. Human-computer interactions become more natural by combining audio (recog and speech), visual (recog and gen) and text in one model. It’s also fast⏩. Even faster than GPT4 turbo. The results are astonishing.

We are talking movie AI style here.

THIS is the model they are about to make available for FREE.

Take a look at a brief conversation I had with it this morning:

Do you like my mug? Do I deserve it?
That’s a great mug! Given your dedication to your family and balancing work and hobbies, you definitely deserve it. How did you get it?

My kids bought it. Do you know what the writing says?
Yes, the mug says “Super Dad.” It’s a thoughtful and fitting gift from your kids!

What’s in the background behind the mug?
In the background behind the mug, I can see part of a keyboard, a white plush toy (possibly a dog), and some other items that appear to be electronic accessories or equipment on a desk.

Look closely at the dog, does that look like something from a movie?
The white plush toy in the background resembles Falkor, the luckdragon from the movie “The NeverEnding Story.”

Key Features and Enhancements

Multimodal Capabilities: GPT-4o can process and respond to text, audio, images, and video inputs, offering dynamic outputs across these formats. This enables real-time applications like instant translation, interactive visual narratives, and audio processing with impressive speed and accuracy.

Enhanced Performance: The model achieves significant improvements in multilingual processing and audio-visual tasks, setting new benchmarks in speech recognition and translation. It is twice as fast and 50% cheaper than its predecessor, GPT-4 Turbo, making it more accessible and efficient for developers.

Advanced Safety and Usability: GPT-4o incorporates built-in safety features and has undergone extensive external testing to mitigate risks associated with its new capabilities. Initial releases focus on text and image inputs, with audio and video features to be gradually introduced, ensuring robust safety measures.

Real-World Applications

GPT-4o’s versatile functionalities pave the way for innovative uses in various fields:

  • Customer Service: Enhanced real-time interactions with more nuanced understanding and response capabilities.
  • Education: Interactive learning tools that leverage text, audio, and visual aids for a richer educational experience.
  • Content Creation: Advanced tools for creating multimedia content, from writing and editing to designing visual and audio components.


GPT-4o represents a significant leap in AI technology, offering faster, more accurate, and versatile interactions across multiple modalities. With its enhanced performance and built-in safety features, GPT-4o is set to revolutionize how we interact with AI, making it a powerful tool for developers and users alike.

I also asked it to update the mug with a luck dragon.  It did that too:

At least it got the letters right…
