OpenAI Teaches ChatGPT to Read PDFs and Pick Tools Without Being Asked - ERIC HAL SCHWARTZ, Voicebot

OpenAI has introduced a set of upgrades to its ChatGPT Plus subscription service that bundles all of the generative AI chatbot’s tools into a single setting and opens up more options for document analysis. The improvements to OpenAI’s GPT-4 large language model mean users can upload PDFs and other kinds of documents while getting the AI to analyze data or produce images within a single conversation. ChatGPT’s unification of tools means that document analysis, web browsing, and DALL-E 3 image generation no longer require the user to toggle each tool on separately, forcing them to copy information between chat windows to combine functions. Users can upload a photo and ask for a variation of it. The AI can even add an object from a different image entirely to its next production. The tools are all together, so a single query can ask for information, charts, and visuals all at once and get a helpful response.
