ChatGPT knowledge cutoff dates extended 

Share post:

OpenAI has announced substantial extensions to the knowledge cutoff dates for both GPT-3.5 and the all-new GPT-4 Turbo.

This means that ChatGPT will now be able to provide more accurate and up-to-date information about current events. The previous cutoff dates had become a major annoyance for users, who often found themselves being met with apologies and unanswered questions when they asked about recent news.

For GPT-3.5, the cutoff date has been increased to January 2022 from September 2021. This means that the chatbot will now be able to access and process information from up to two years ago.

The cutoff date for the new version of GPT-4, dubbed GPT-4 Turbo, is April 2023. This means that the chatbot will now be able to access and process information from up to four months ago.

These new timeframes mean that users will no longer bump into as many unanswered questions and apologies when asking the chatbot about the recent past. ChatGPT’s responses about relatively recent events should also be more accurate and precise.
