“Apple Takes on OpenAI with Apple GPT: The Tech Giant’s Own Generative AI Chatbot Enters the Fray”

Apple is currently creating its own huge language artificial intelligence models as the AI market becomes more competitive. According to a story from Bloomberg News published on Wednesday, Cupertino has developed a chatbot service internally known as “Apple GPT” by certain programmers.

In order to compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google’s Bard, and Meta’s Llama, Apple has built its own internal infrastructure upon which it will develop substantial language models. The framework is known by the codename “Ajax,” sources informed the publication. It initially launched last year and utilises Google Cloud. The chatbot is now only accessible within Apple. Some Apple workers think the company may make a substantial AI announcement as early as next year.

The move demonstrates Apple’s foray into generative AI, especially in light of OpenAI’s introduction of ChatGPT, which quickly gained enormous user traction. Due to ChatGPT’s unexpected success, alternative AI chatbots from Google and Microsoft have being developed. Even while Cupertino doesn’t often use the phrase “artificial intelligence,” it is well known that the business incorporates AI into several of its products, including the well-known Siri speech assistant.

Apple earlier this year prohibited internal use of ChatGPT and the AI code-writing assistance GitHub Copilot, which is owned by Microsoft. Two AI firms were allegedly acquired by Apple in 2020, providing important hints about the company’s long-term aspirations to integrate AI into many of its major products and apps.

CEO Tim Cook stated on the company’s quarterly earnings call this year that Apple intends to “weave” AI into its products, but he also issued a warning over the technology’s future. This week, mobile chipmaker Qualcomm said that it will collaborate with Meta to enable the social media giant’s next huge language model, Llama 2, to function on Qualcomm devices starting in 2024 for phones and PCs.
