OpenAI released GPT-4 on March 14th 2023. Microsoft was granted first outside access to the GPT-4 model in February 2023, proving their $10 Billion investment in OpenAI was an insightful & forward thinking investment into the future of artificial intelligence.
What do we know about the upcoming release of GPT-5? Let me explain what I’ve discovered and fact-checked about ChatGPT 5.
The big question on everyone’s mind is how large is the GPT-5 dataset it was pretrained on? The only thing that can be confirmed is Sam Altman is keeping tight lipped about GPT-5 during his recent world tour. The only quote I can confirm Altman made regarding ChatGPT-5 is “OpenAI is not pretraining GPT-5” at the moment.
The OpenAI CEO and Co-Founder has been on an exhaustive tour (literally around the world), meeting with world Government leaders discussing important issues regarding the AI software development guidelines potential regulations on artificially intelligent technology. Here’s the key data points from the international tour meetings.

Please note that exact dates of the visits to each city are not provided for the full-tour. I’ve estimated the dates for cities based on the information that all visits happened within two weeks. The meeting locations for most of the OpenAI meets are also not specified yet. I’ll be adding exact OpenAI world tour meeting locations once I’ve gathered the complete accurate details.
OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, Embarks on Global Diplomatic Tour
Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, said “the world wants A.I. and the market will deliver” according to CNBC, while on an extensive international tour visiting numerous countries and meeting with various world leaders, students, and venture capitalists. The tour included stops in Israel, Jordan, Qatar, the UAE, India, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, and Australia. During his travels, Altman advocated for global cooperation in making AI technology safer and promoting more exchanges between Chinese and American researchers.
Altman’s tour comes at a time when AI technology like ChatGPT is a hot topic globally, with governments striving to balance innovation and regulation. Altman has been leveraging his interactions with global governments to seek more favorable regulation for OpenAI. He has previously criticized the EU’s AI legislation and has been lobbying against having OpenAI’s models classified as “high risk.”
Altman has also been proactive in engaging with policymakers, a move seen as a learning curve from the experiences of other Big Tech CEOs. He has urged governments to collaborate with companies like OpenAI to regulate AI and mitigate its potential risks. Critics, however, argue that Altman’s regulatory proposals could favor larger companies like OpenAI that have the resources to comply with regulations.
What date will OpenAI release Chat GPT-5?
The GPT-5 release date is still undetermined. Regarding the fast progression from the GPT-3 model to 3.5 and now to ChatGPT 4, the amount of substantial model growth and improvement in GPT’s content accuracy, and fewer hallucinations, has been super impressive with each new version released.
So… How good will ChatGPT 5 really be?
The information presented from here forward is based on my personal opinion and anticipated GPT-5 release date ranges. These are not statistics that follow to be clear. This is how I see it developing based on my experience creating social media networks going back to 2007:
GPT-4 was supposed to be multimodal according the OpenAI’s official GPT-4 release notes. However, ChatGPT-5 looks to be brining text-to-video AI generation to the model. This will be another game-changer from OpenAI.
I forecast (predict) that OpenAI will set the GPT-5 release date sometime between October 2023 – December 2023.
