GPT-4 claims to be GPT-3.5

How come when I ask GPT-4 about its version, it thinks that it’s still gpt-3.5, and thinks its information cutoff is still september 2021. It claims that gpt-4 has not been released yet. Wouldn’t GPT-4 be aware of its own existance, and know that it’s cutoff date is changed?

I have to finesse it, and use plugins for it to even acwknowledge the existance of gpt-4

In short, no, it does not consistently know. There’s several other threads discussing the topic.

Is there a reason you need it to know it’s GPT-4?

I was just curious is all. Thought it would have that data, like 3.5 does
