One by one, companies are finding ways to integrate the new AI model into their services, and in Duolingo GPT-4 is now sort of a personal tutor. According to a Tuesday announcement from Duolingo, a new “Max” subscription tier will be available with capabilities supported by OpenAI’s brand-new GPT-4 technology.
Duolingo Max adds two new AI-powered features dubbed “Roleplay” and “Explain My Answer,” which both cost $29.99 per month or $167.99 annually. On the same day as the unveiling, OpenAI unveiled its newest GPT-4 AI language model.
With Roleplay and Explain My Answer features in Duolingo GPT-4 will add a personal touch
With the help of the Roleplay function, users may access an AI chatbot that lets them practice having real-world conversations with the app’s fictional characters. Thanks to GPT-4, users will be able to communicate with an AI that is both receptive and interactive. Users are guided through various scenarios by the functionality.
For instance, you can act as though you are placing a coffee order at a café in Paris or conversing with a specific character in the app about your upcoming vacation. After the chat is over, users will receive AI-powered feedback on the precision and complexity of their responses, along with suggestions for subsequent interactions.
According to Duolingo GPT-4 doesn’t create the scenarios entirely. Instead, human experts create the scenarios that users experience in Roleplay and ensure that the initial prompt corresponds to the user’s current course location. The professionals also craft the chat’s opening message and direct the AI model’s course of action.
Whether a user’s response to a lesson was correct or incorrect, the Explain My Answer tool allows them to learn more about it. After completing several activities, users can tap a button to start a chat with Duo to learn why their response was correct or incorrect and to ask for examples or further explanations. According to the firm, the tool is intended to assist you when you make a mistake and are unsure of the appropriate response. When you continue making the same error and are unsure of the cause, the function can also be helpful.
Only the Spanish and French for English Speakers on iOS courses are able to make use of these two additional capabilities. Next, other platforms and courses will start receiving the new functionalities, according to the business.
A tier above the Super Duolingo subscription, Duolingo GPT-4 included version, the Max subscription offers limitless hearts, no advertisements, and individualized reviews through the Practice Hub of the program. You may find Duolingo Max in the Store tab at the top of your screen if you’re qualified to try it out.
According to Duolingo GPT-4 generated explanations in Roleplay and Explain My Answer are continually reviewed to make sure they are factually accurate and written in an appropriate tone. The tech firm attracted criticism when it added GPT-4 to Bing earlier this year when users reported receiving unsettling and unpleasant replies from the search engine. The chatbot may be prompted to answer in a manner inconsistent with its “intended tone,” according to Microsoft. Duolingo claims it will make sure the AI’s tone is engaging, encouraging, and even sardonic in a true Duo way in order to avoid a situation like this with its chatbot.
“We know that technology is never perfect (hey, neither are humans!),” the company says in a recent blog post. “Part of the reason we’re so excited to use GPT-4 for these features is that it’s the most accurate (and fastest) version of the technology available. We’ve spent months collaborating closely with OpenAI to test and train this technology, and will continue doing so until the mistakes are nearly nonexistent.”
According to Duolingo, it tested the new technology for months with its teams and a select set of users and was pleased with the results.
To incorporate GPT-4 into their products, OpenAI has teamed with businesses like Stripe and Khan Academy. The general public can use the new model by subscribing to ChatGPT Plus, the company’s $20 monthly membership. However, there are many more developments with the release of GPT-4.
