Pivot 5: 5 stories. 5 minutes a day. 5 days a week.

1. GPT-5 will have ‘Ph.D.-level’ intelligence

OpenAI Chief Technology Officer Mira Murati has revealed that the next major evolution of ChatGPT, GPT-5, will be in a year and a half. She describes the transition from GPT-3 to GPT-5 as someone growing from a high-schooler to university.

Murati explains that systems like GPT-4 are more like smart high-schooler intelligence, and in the next couple of years, they will be looking at Ph.D. intelligence for specific tasks. The launch of GPT-5 may not come until late 2025 or early 2026, as the first rumors about its launch were in late 2023.

Record labels, including Sony Music, Universal Music Group, and Warner Records, are suing two AI start-ups, Suno and Udio, for alleged copyright infringement. The lawsuits, announced by the Recording Industry Association of America, are part of a wave of lawsuits from authors, news organizations, and other groups challenging the rights of AI firms to use their work. 

Suno, based in Massachusetts, claims over 10 million people have used its tool to make music, while Udio, backed by high-profile venture capital investors, was used to create "BBL Drizzy" - a parody track related to the Kendrick Lamar and Drake feud. The lawsuits come just months after 200 artists, including Billie Eilish and Nicki Minaj, signed a letter calling for the "predatory" use of AI in the music industry to be stopped.
