LlamaIndex news special edition: OpenAI developer day!

Hello Llama fans!

Yesterday was a big day in the world of LLMs; OpenAI held their developer day conference and there were a slew of new features. The team were all hands on deck to bring support for these features to the library as fast as possible — which is to say, the same day!

In case you missed our tweet about it, if you install the latest build of LlamaIndex you’ll get everything below:

Support for two new models released today

  • gpt-4-1106-preview , aka GPT-4 Turbo, the latest GPT-4 model with improved instruction following, JSON mode, reproducible outputs, parallel function calling, and a 128,000 token context window
  • gpt-4-vision-preview , aka GPT 4 Turbo with vision with long-awaited multimodal support, has the ability to understand images in addition to all the other GPT-4 Turbo capabilities.

You can use these models just as you would any other OpenAI model:

from llama_index.llms import OpenAI
from llama_index import VectorStoreIndex, SimpleDirectoryReader, ServiceContext

llm = OpenAI(model="gpt-4-1106-preview")
service_context = ServiceContext.from_defaults(llm=llm)
documents = SimpleDirectoryReader("data").load_data()
index = VectorStoreIndex.from_documents(
    documents, service_context=service_context
