ChatGPT's Knowledge Base Finally Extends Beyond 2021 - Michael Kan, PC Mag

OpenAI is updating ChatGPT’s knowledge base so that it can finally respond about things that occurred after September 2021.The change is part of a slew of improvements OpenAI is making to its AI program, including the ability for anyone—including people who can’t program—to create custom ChatGPT models. During its first annual developer day, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman introduced GPT-4 Turbo, a new large language model for ChatGPT, which currently runs on GPT-3.5 or GPT-4 models. GPT-4 Turbo is designed to address “many of the things” that developers and users have been asking for, Altman says, including more up-to-date information. "We will try to never let it get that out-of-date again,” according to Altman, who says the GPT-4 Turbo model updates the chatbot’s knowledge base up to April 2023. “And we will continue to improve that over time,” he adds.
