OpenAI Submits Trademark Application for GPT-5: Implications and Analysis
OpenAI OpCo, LLC recently filed a “GPT-5” trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This move could be a tangible sign of the progress taking place in the artificial intelligence sector.
GPT-5 Trademark Application Details According to what was initially reported by Windows Latest and shared on various tweets, the trademark registration intends to cover a wide range of categories. In particular, it concerns downloadable programs and software related to language models, the artificial production of human speech and text, and the natural processing of language, which includes the generation, comprehension and analysis.
The application also includes machine learning-based software for language and speech processing, translating text or speech from one language to another, sharing datasets for machine learning, predictive analytics, and building of language models.
Additional features include converting audio files to text, speech recognition, text creation and generation, and the development, execution, and analysis of algorithms that learn to analyze, classify, and act in response to exposure some data.
Furthermore, the demand extends to software for developing and implementing artificial neural networks. OpenAI also intends to provide Software as a Service (SaaS) for these functions. At present, the application is in the 'processing a new application' stage, which means that the Office has accepted it and is waiting to assign it to a reviewing solicitor.
For comparison, OpenAI OpCo, LLC filed a similar application for GPT-4 on March 13, 2023. The USPTO website indicates that it is processing applications submitted between September 29, 2022 and October 13, 2022.
The Future of GPT-5 OpenAI's filing of the GPT-5 trademark could have several implications. During a recent event, Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, discussed the development of GPT-5 stating, “We have a lot of work to do before GPT-5. It takes a lot of time. We are certainly not close. There must be more security audits. I wish I could tell you about the timing of the next GPT.”
While that may not mean that a new, more powerful language model will be available anytime soon, the submission underscores a continued advance in AI technology, particularly in natural language processing and machine learning.
