When to use GPT 3.5 or GPT 4?
- If you’re limited in terms of computing power, GPT 3.5 is significantly cheaper to run.
- If you need to process image inputs or generate code from images, GPT 4 is the only option that can handle this modality.
- If you need to generate creative content, such as stories, poems, or essays, GPT 4 is more likely to produce coherent and original outputs than GPT 3.5.
- If you need to perform complex reasoning or inference tasks, such as passing a bar exam or a math Olympiad, GPT 4 is more likely to produce correct and consistent outputs than GPT 3.5.
- If you need to generate factual or informative content, such as summaries or translations, GPT 4 is less likely to “hallucinate” or make factual errors than GPT 3.5. However, it takes the same amount of time for a human to fact-check and edit the text. So if speed is the priority, the older model might be the better choice.
- If you need to generate sensitive or ethical content, such as medical advice or social commentary, GPT 4 is more likely to produce safe and aligned outputs than GPT 3.5.
