The news: OpenAI expects that GPT-4.5 will arrive in September or October of this year, per Digital Trends.
Although OpenAI leaders said they haven’t started GPT-5 training yet, Runway CEO Siqi Chen said he’s been told that GPT-5’s training will be completed in December and that OpenAI thinks it will be an artificial general intelligence (AGI).
The king of all marketing tactics: We know that achieving AGI is a focal point for OpenAI. The startup is likely working behind the scenes to build it.
Tech players raise alarm bells: We expect the march toward AGI to continue despite a letter signed by 1,125 people—including those working in the AI field and Elon Musk—who called for a six-month moratorium on developing models more powerful than GPT-4.
What’s next? Companies like OpenAI, Microsoft, Google, and Meta will aggressively push the AI innovation needle this year, making acquisition attempts more likely.
