New York-based start-up Forefront has launched its web tool, Forefront chat. The AI tool lets you use GPT-4 for free.
Artificial intelligence is making some major leaps in recent times. With tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, millions of people around the world are finding newer ways to enhance their productivity and amplify creativity. Now, everyone has access to an AI-powered virtual assistant that writes essays, simplifies complex ideas, writes codes, and answers just about anything under the Sun.
Just like any other technology, the highly advanced AI-powered chatbots come with a cost, especially GPT-4. However, now, it seems there is an opportunity for more people to try their hands at GPT-4, and that too for free. New York-based software development company, Forefront AI, launched Forefront Chat. The latest tool allows users to access GPT-4 for free.
Apart from GPT-4, users can also try image generation, custom personas, shareable chats, and more on the platform. Users can pick from a wide range of personas that can assist them with various tasks. The tool comes with a Plus button in the input box that allows one to toggle between GPT-4 and GPT-3.5.
Today we’re launching Forefront chat—a better ChatGPT experience—in free alpha. Sign up to get free access to GPT-4, image generation, custom personas, shareable chats, and much more: https://t.co/lqsY9bkvl8 pic.twitter.com/CLht1pmQCn

The login is fairly simple, one simply needs log on to chat.forefront.ai, create an account either with an email id or an existing Google account. We tried the web application on both desktop and mobile browsers, and it worked wonderfully.
Although the website has not given any instructions on how to create images, it has shared a video on its Twitter handle about the tool in which it was shown that the user was using a hashtag followed by imagine (#imagine) as a prefix to prompts for image creation. We also used prompts such as #Imagine yellow Taj Mahal, #Imagine Batman as Indian, and #Imagine a visual representation of India’s population. The images were not of great quality, but they pretty much summed their corresponding prompts.
Besides, we also checked regular ChatGPT and Forefront.AI chat side by side, and both worked at a similar pace. The LinkedIn profile of Forefront AI lists Jimmy Greaser, Michael Tuck, and Carson Poole as the cofounders of the company. It is to be noted that the company has not shared any other details related to the tool.
GPT-4, which stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4, is the latest iteration of San Francisco-based OpenAI’s large language model in the GPT series. It is essentially a multimodal large language model claimed to be faster, more efficient, and more powerful than GPT-3. At present, GPT-4 is accessible to only users who have subscribed to ChatGPT Plus, a premium service offered by the company.
OpenAI claims that GPT-4 can generate captions, classifications, and analyses of any topic. It can handle 25,000 words of text, allowing it to create extended conversations. The company has also claimed that its latest model will produce a less factually inaccurate response. OpenAI has also claimed that GPT-4 is better than humans on numerous standardised tests.
