With the arrival of GPT-4, the latest language model from Open AI, the Californian company that developed ChatGPT, promises to code a replica of the video game Pong in 60 seconds, write a lawyer's argument, or give sommelier advice as well as financial investments. The program would even be able to beat 90% of jurists to become a lawyer.

For its part, the generative image software Midjourney, which has made headlines with an expanded version of The Girl with a Pearl Earring, has just released a new version. Finally, the historical computer giant Microsoft has developed Copilot, a tool that allows you to take notes, make summaries of meetings, or easily generate tables. Are these changes too brutal?
