There are many theories on who the voices is, or based upon. We dig up the clues and layout the evidence. You may know this person.

Welcome to the latest advancements in artificial intelligence from OpenAI. I'm thrilled to share with you the details of our groundbreaking new model, GPT-4o, which promises to revolutionize how we interact with AI.

OpenAI's GPT Evolution

OpenAI has been at the forefront of generative AI, consistently pushing the boundaries of what AI can achieve. From the early iterations of ChatGPT to the advanced capabilities of GPT-4o, each version has brought us closer to creating more sophisticated, responsive, and human-like AI models. Our journey has been marked by significant milestones, including the release of GPT-4 Turbo and now the much-anticipated GPT-4o.

Okay, the voice behind GPT-4o

There are only theories floating around as to who this is based on. Sam Altman shared a cryptic one-word tweet: her. See the tweet here. Many believe that that could be based on Scarlet Johansson’s sci-fi thriller Her. No doubt there is an eerie similarity between the two.

Like an artsy Hollywood movie that does not give you the ending, we are all left to make what we can of it. But, given the tone and the sound, coupled with Altman’s cryptic tweet, we can go out on a limb and with a very, very strong—50% chance that it’s Scarlet Johansson.
