A mysterious chatbot creates excitement among the AI community

Social media platforms and online forums were brimming with excitement yesterday at the discovery of a new AI model in the wild that seems on par with — or even better than — OpenAI’s leading GPT-4 model which powers ChatGPT.

Here’s what happened:

  • A new AI model called “gpt2-chatbot” surfaced on the LMSYS Chatbot Arena, a popular website for comparing AI models.

  • Several accounts on social media platforms reported unexpectedly superior performance from the model.

  • Stanford Univeristy student and AI researcher Andrew Gao claimed that gpt-2 solved an International Math Olympiad problem.

  • Wharton professor Ethan Mollick echoed similar sentiments about gpt-2’s performance compared to GPT-4.

The source of the model is unknown but many are pointing out similarities between responses from gpt-2 and OpenAI’s GPT-4, potentially indicating that OpenAI is testing a new AI model before releasing it officially.

In a bit of apparent mischief, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman added to the excitement by neither confirming or denying the claims, posting “i do have a soft spot for gpt2.“
