The new update brings more features to the chatbot and Sam Altman believes that it almost feels like something out of a movie. Expressing his astonishment at the capabilities of GPT-4o, he likened it to “AI from the movies” and noted in a blog that “the new voice (and video) mode is the best compute interface I’ve ever used. It feels like AI from the movies; and it’s still a bit surprising to me that it’s real. Getting to human-level response times and expressiveness turns out to be a big change.”
