Is it really Multimodal?

Multimodal can be referred to as a process that utilizes more than one way or mode of achieving goals or addressing several modes of applications.

People use this term on a high scale for academic and technical contexts.

OpenAI’s latest model GPT-4 is defined as “Multimodal” due to its ability to exhibit responses in more than one form which is an image and text form. The vision input is one of the top features of GPT-4. 

Final Thoughts

GPT-4 contains a different pricing plan based on the tokens and context length utilized by the users. The latest pricing of GPT-4 begins at $0.03 and moves all the way up to $0.12 per 1000 tokens based on the requirements.

API pricing is quite affordable compared to the purchasing plans initiated by ChatGPT Plus which is $20/month to access GPT-4. 

Even though GPT-4 API is unavailable for now, users can still join the waitlist to ensure early access.
