Artificial intelligence (AI) or artificial intelligence continues to develop rapidly, ChatGPT is a good example. The possibilities of this chatbot have been expanded again in the latest version, and the artificial intelligence performs impressively on things like school exams. Surprisingly, it can also apparently find vulnerabilities in Ethereum (ETH) smart contracts.
OpenAI launches ChatGPT v4
OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, released a fourth-generation language processing model called GPT-4. GPT-4 is a language model that can provide human answers to a very wide range of questions. But this new version doesn’t just chat, it also performs significantly better on school and law exams.
GPT-4 has new processing capabilities not possible with previous versions. It can now convert image, audio and video files to text, and carry out “subtle instructions” creatively and reliably. This enables the model to perform much more complex tasks than just answering questions.
Vulnerabilities in Ethereum Smart Contracts
OpenAI demonstrated the potential of GPT-4 by running the model on multiple exams and achieving extremely high scores on all of them. GPT-4 was not specifically trained on these exams, suggesting that the results are representative of the overall performance of the model.
In addition to performing language processing tasks and test scoring, GPT-4 has demonstrated other impressive skills. For example, the model can point to security holes and explain how code can be exploited, as former Coinbase executive Conor Grogan demonstrated. A former Bridgewater executive threw a live Ethereum contract into GPT-4, and the AI immediately discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the code and ways they could be exploited.

In an instant, it highlights some security holes and points to surface areas where contracts can be exploited. Then it verifies that I can exploit the contract in a specific way pic.twitter.com/its5puakUW
