Apple engineers are reportedly working on ChatGPT-like AI

Apple is testing the ChatGPT-like generative AI concepts. According to the New York Times, the new chatbot could one day be destined for Siri, despite fundamental issues with how the virtual assistant is built.

Apple engineers are reportedly working on ChatGPT-like AI

At the company’s annual AI summit last month, employees were apparently briefed on Apple’s large language model and other AI tools. Apple engineers, including members of the ‌Siri‌ team, reportedly tested language generation concepts “every week”.

These next-generation AI technologies have highlighted how ‌Siri‌, Alexa, and other voice assistants have squandered their lead in the AI ​​race. ‌Siri‌ has faced multiple hurdles to meaningful improvements. Former Apple engineer John Burkey, who worked on ‌Siri‌, explained that the voice assistant is built on “clumsy code that took weeks to update with basic functions.”

The “cumbersome design” made it very difficult for engineers to add new features. For example, ‌Siri‌’s database contains a large list of expressions in nearly two dozen languages.

This means that simple updates, such as adding new phrases to the dataset, require rebuilding the entire ‌Siri‌ database, which can take up to six weeks. Likewise, adding more complicated features, such as new search tools, can take up to a full year. As a result, there was no path for ‌Siri‌ to become a “creative assistant” like ChatGPT, Burkey believes.
