In a much-awaited announcement Monday, Microsoft-backed OpenAI finally rolled out its magical product, on which, according to the CEO Sam Altman, the company had worked tirelessly.

OpenAI’s new product is artificial intelligence (AI) powered chatbot GPT-4o that is capable of detecting human emotions, as the San Francisco-based startup bids to expand its ChatGPT services.

The GPT-4o would perceive via real-time cameras and the internet has rushed with demo videos with some users saying that the technology is going to prey upon several employments.

Despite concerns, experts told Business Insider that it is unlikely that such products may steam jobs, revealing that the demonstration showed Monday may not present the true capabilities of their new AI product.

The latest audio version of GPT-4o could allow people to interact with them respond to their queries, and teach them translations.

OpenAI also posted several demonstrative videos on its website showing people interacting with the AI chatbot by giving them commands on things. The new system is also capable to detect surroundings by camera and let you know where you might be.

The company’s demo video on its website also shows the chief technology officer Mira Murati among other employees, asking GPT-4o to assist them.

Ben Leong, a computer science professor at the National University of Singapore, said it's too early to draw conclusions.

However, it's going to be difficult for AI to take over customer support, teaching, or negotiation.

Simon Lucey, the director of the University of Adelaide's Australian Institute for Machine Learning, said ChatGPT still makes errors when multiplying numbers of three digits or more, even in its later versions.

"At the end of the day… you still need to get a human to cast desire over what it's producing," Lucey said.
