After filing an application for trademarking the name back in August, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman finally confirmed that the company is actively thinking about how to build GPT-5, the next version of the wildly popular GPT-4 model that powers many of today’s top AI applications, including ChatGPT.

While no details were shared on technical specs or timelines, Altman said that GPT-5 will require new data, which will come from public data sets and propriety data from companies. He also added that the company will need more funds from its leading partner Microsoft to build ‘superintelligence.’
