Imagine a computer program superior to any other program ever made in its ability to comprehend and produce human language. That is the GPT-4 artificial intelligence model from OpenAI, which is redefining the language processing field. However, could we potentially merge the potency of language with visual complexity? In my previous Google Bard AI article, I explained how ChatGPT does not have an image recognition feature. Meet GPT-4 with Vision (GPT-4V) – an innovative feature poised to transfigure our daily interactions with AI. With this new update, ChatGPT can now explain and decipher what is shown on the image.

What is GPT-4V?

The most recent development in OpenAI, GPT-4V, gives users control over how the AI interprets image input. By amalgamating visual modalities into large language models, GPT-4V specifically, it effectively closes the chasm between textual comprehension and visual interpretation. This combination of languages and visions opens up opportunities for abundant applications, notably in areas that intersect directly with our daily routines. 

In this article, we will explore 5 applications of GPT-4V. These applications have the potential to fuse harmoniously with our daily routines.

Food Analysis & Recipe Suggestion: With GPT-4V, you can simply submit an image of any dish and see its calorie content. Not only this, the tool even enables you to explore beyond basic estimations: it can also dissect the ingredients, offering detailed analysis–even recommending recipes or healthier alternatives. For people meticulously tracking their nutrition, this can be a huge time-saving feature!

I tried experimenting with this image, and here is what GPT-4V gave me.

Although they are rough estimates, I think it works if you are not looking for precise assessments.

Home Decor: Similarly to food analysis, you can also upload a picture of your room, and GPT-4V will provide decoration tips to suggest optimal furniture placements – it may even identify items that could benefit from an upgrade. Think of it as having a personal interior designer readily available!

Personal Fashion Assistant: Next up, fashion. You can capture your outfit, and not GPT-4V will not only offer fashion advice but also recommend complementary accessories and identify online sources for purchasing identical clothing items. 

No-Code Web Development: An online presence is essential in the digital age; however, not all possess tech-savviness. Utilizing GPT-4V, budding entrepreneurs or businesses have the ability to present a screenshot or mockup of their desired website layout. Subsequently, AI assists them by generating an analogous no-code website template. Web development becomes effortless; no expertise in coding is necessary. You can submit a screenshot of the website you want as a reference, and GPT-4V will provide you with the necessary HTML and CSS codes that mimic the website.

No-Code Application Development: GPT-4V is a potential game-changer for budding app developers and business owners. By simply presenting the AI with a mockup or design of your desired app interface, it provides feedback–highlighting any missing elements–and even guides you through the no-code development process. This experience is comparable to receiving step-by-step assistance from an experienced app developer.

To experiment, I tried to generate a simple food calorie calculator. I uploaded an AI-generated design of a calculator and asked for the HTML, CSS, and JS code.

It gave me a dummy calculator, but with small adjustments, it could be fully functional.


The introduction of GPT-4V, a groundbreaking feature by OpenAI, represents significant progress in AI. We already witnessed some intriguing applications of this technology in our daily routines; however, these instances merely mark the initial stages. With ongoing enhancements in the field–as we could reasonably anticipate–it is poised to proliferate significantly, becoming an integral part of our future routines and providing us with multifaceted assistance.

Envision an artificial intelligence that transcends simple auditory reception and comprehends the spatial environment we inhabit: it perceives, interprets – indeed, understands our world. Numerous things we do, including work tasks, side projects, and hobbies, will change as a result of this. We’re entering a new technological era where our digital assistants have a much better understanding of the world around them.
